How do you feel about Smash Golf?

Smash Golf

In the last year or so, several hybrid variations of golf have popped up around the country with the hope of bringing new players to golf facilities with a faster, easier, less expensive and/or unique reason to come to the course.

By far, FootGolf has caught on best. Over 400 facilities serve FootGolfers, many who are younger than the typical golfer or have bonds to soccer that draw them into the game. 

Then there's FlingGolf, which is a lacross-golf hybrid that Billy Casper Golf has been instrumental in seeding and testing before a broader launch.

And now there's SmashGolf. Invented in Florida, the sport uses a special ball and racquet to combine a golf course with the motions of tennis or racquetball. 

It's unclear which, if any, of these sports will thrive in the long haul, but it is fascinating to see people within the game trying to come up with new ideas that solve some of the challenges facing course owners and operators.
