About

Our project is Full Swing Ultimate Yard Golf. Our father and son dream is to incorporate golf into a fun and safe yard game that "feels" like real golf. Our game consists of specially designed injection molded parts for "teeing" off of and "putting" into along with beautiful, numbered flags and tee markers, low-flight foam balls, scorecards and instructional DVD all in a suitcase style box. We are hopeful that YOU will help us get this great game off the ground. It has been in development for over three years. We've had players age 11 to 70 play our test course (287 yards, Par 35) and they all loved it. It is challenging and fun and the quality of the parts means you can leave it set up all season if you like. We hope to see friends playing at each other's "country clubs" and creating their own tournaments. We see Full Swing as a  potential fund-raising tool for all types of organizations too. Mostly we want to put out a really fun, new outdoor game. No batteries required. Full Swing could be a great tool as a safe, stress-free and fun way to start children playing the great game of golf. Our game will be American made using manufacturers in California, New Jersey, North Carolina and Connecticut. We have planned an interactive website and a good marketing plan to sell the games. Our kit will sell for 97.00 + shipping. Please jump in and help us launch Full Swing Ultimate Yard Golf, The Best Yard Game You Never Had and please "LIKE" us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fsuyg

Risks and challenges

Although we've worked on this for three+ years we do expect unforeseen issues along the way. Our two injection molded parts are fully engineered and drawn, mold designers/builders in place. All parts mfg's are in place. The game box and graphics are done. We have a professionally filmed promo video completed. We know our completed costs on everything. Most parts come from close by with a two week lead time. Perhaps the most critical parts, the injection molded ones, will be manufactured 35 miles from us. All parts including the box (except perhaps the balls...we're not sure) will be made in America.
