About

Flop Shot™ is the next step in cornhole golf. A custom net to catch runaway balls and minimize game disruptions. A chipping surface that's part of your playing board and doesn't move when you swing. And a gameboard that makes it simple to play cornhole—you just flip the board over! Flop Shot™ is all this and much, much more. Keep reading to learn more about the unique, high-quality, and versatile game that's set to change the cornhole golf industry.

Custom Netting to Catch Runaway Balls and End Game Disruptions

How many times have you been chipping at a tailgate and the ball has hit the board and ricocheted off and bounced down a row of cars? Are you tired of chasing down runaway balls in front of your friends, family and strangers?

With Flop Shot™, you can leave the game disruptions to the other chipping games. Our custom netting catches loose balls and minimizes interruptions for faster, easier play. Check it out:

Our custom net has your back—and will catch your runaway balls!

After all, you shouldn't have to hit the perfect shot in order to fully enjoy your chipping game, and with Flop Shot™, you don't have to!

A More-Realistic Golf Experience

Your chipping game should provide you with the most-realistic golf experience possible. That means a chipping surface that's actually part of the gameboard and a gameboard that only has ONE HOLE! You deserve a stable area to chip off of, not a mat that moves when you swing that's just one more game piece to keep track of. And your gameboard should be more like real golf and shouldn't rest at unrealistic angles—after all, you need a golf experience that makes you feel like you're actually on the course.

Flop Shot™ features an in-board chipping surface, so only your shot will move.
Flop Shot™ features an in-board chipping surface, so only your shot will move.

And unlike competing chipping games where every swing of the club is the same, Flop Shot™ requires varying shot selections in order to win. That means that skill, patience, and accuracy are rewarded. It's a cornhole golf game that scores like real golf! And the scoring is simple: One point for a ball in the net, two points for a ball that rests on the board, and three points for a ball that rolls in the hole. 

Different shots score differently. Just like real golf!

Don't settle for a chipping game that doesn't feel like REAL GOLF. For the most-realistic golf experience, take a swing at Flop Shot™!

2-in-1 Cornhole Golf Fun. Everyone Wants In!

With other competing golf games, the fun stops at chipping. But what happens when you want to play cornhole? Unfortunately, you have to find another board—but with Flop Shot™, it's simple. You just flip the board over!

Flip from golf to cornhole in seconds!
Flip from golf to cornhole in seconds!

And when it comes to quality, Flop Shot™ isn't made of fragile plastic, nor is it a cheap piece of plywood constructed in your cousin's garage. Flop Shot™ is an all-weather product that is durable and designed for easy, safe transport from party sites to tailgates to backyard barbecues. With a smooth finish for player-friendly tosses, a set of sturdy cornhole bags, and a price tag that's below the cost of competing chipping games and premium cornhole games, Flop Shot™ provides enjoyable, reliable, and affordable 2-in-1 fun!

Our durable, all-weather board will be there for you tailgate season after tailgate season.

We're Chipping Toward the Future. Cornhole Golfers Assemble!

Austin, our brave founder.
Austin, our brave founder.

Flop Shot™ began with one person—founder Austin Maginnis—and one idea—to create the ultimate cornhole golf experience for easier, more-realistic, and versatile gameplay. Beginning in his backyard, Austin has developed Flop Shot™ from a rough prototype to a sophisticated, ready-for-market product that is now patented with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Working with a comprehensive manufacturer and an experienced and respected sourcing company, we're getting ready to bring Flop Shot™ to the world.

That's where you come in: we need your help to begin mass production of Flop Shot™. Your contribution will help us meet the costs associated with product tooling and supply purchasing, so we can bring Flop Shot™ to the good men, women, and children who love cornhole golf. Our vision of a durable, realistic, convenient 2-in-1 chipping/cornhole game has nearly been achieved and your support can help push us over the finish line. And in return for your backing, you'll receive an awesome item from the Flop Shot™ universe, including the ultimate cornhole golf experience, Flop Shot™! We're calling on all cornhole golfers to assemble and help us launch Flop Shot™: will you answer the call?

Tailgate Season is Flop Shot™ Season

Risks and challenges

Creating an all-weather, durable, 2-in-1 cornhole golf game that includes a built-in, realistic chipping surface and custom net hasn't been easy. In fact, it's taken several years to take it from a basic, homemade prototype to a ready-for-market product.

Despite all this hard work and sacrifice, the end result is an amazing product. Flop Shot™ is poised to fill an important need in the current cornhole golf market, but first we need your help to make it happen. As our supporters in this exciting product launch, we want to share with you some of the important considerations remaining along Flop Shot's™ road to success:

1) Matching the materials and manufacturing processes with the Kickstarter investment. Ultimately, Flop Shot™ is ideally made with an injection mold process, but in order to do so we need to reach our target Kickstarter goal. If this sales point isn't reached, we will instead utilize a more-basic nylon design that is still sleek and all-weather to provide a quality, durable cornhole golf game.

2) We are in the process of finalizing product details such as the final ball type and the adjustable net's height. Consistent with what we are able to ultimately achieve via Kickstarter, our goal in selecting and approving these products is to maintain the most-realistic golf experience possible while minimizing game disruptions and, most of all, providing our customers with awesome value. We are working closely with our trusted, veteran manufacturer to finalize these details (with the final decision to be reached post-Kickstarter) and create a finished product that meets your high standards, and our own.

Here at Flop Shot™, we've got big goals, and we've put in the time, effort, and energy to make them happen. The end result is an amazing cornhole golf product. The long-term success of Flop Shot™ will depend on you and others who love cornhole golf and want a high-quality, realistic, and versatile product to take to tailgates, backyard barbecues, and more. We've come so far, and we're very close, and with your support, Flop Shot™ will become a reality. Thank you for your time, your support, and your faith in Flop Shot™.
