(FGP) After months of preparation, the FarmGolf website, home to the world’s fastest growing sport, has a new color scheme, along with several other changes to many of the individual pages on the overall website.
The golf balls on tees no longer exist at FarmGolf.com. Also, all pages are now centered for optimal viewing. This change had become a necessity, as computer screens have gotten bigger over the years. While the majority of changes are now complete, keep on the lookout for some other changes leading up to the first tournament of 2009.

The Greatest 4-Person Party Ever
(FGP) On July 12, 2008, FarmGolf had the greatest 4-person party ever. Attendees were G. Sparks, Jeff Garrison, Tiffani Green and Mike Green.
Jeff flew across the United States to see just what it is that make FarmGolf the world’s fastest growing sport. It did not take him long or too many beers to see that this sport truly rocks!
An afternoon of music, talk and beverages have convinced this man of the greatness of FarmGolf. And it is a most fitting tribute that Jeff is planning to install his own FarmGolf course in the State of Washington sometime in late 2009 or early 2010.
After the party was over, the rest of the Sparks family enjoy a relaxing moment at No. 1 Green.
Earth’s Most Exclusive Club, FarmGolf’s Hole-In-One Club
(FGP) Out of 6.8 billion people on Planet Earth, there are only 5 of them eligible for inclusion in Earth’s Most Exclusive Club, A new page, the Hole-In-One Club detailing each member of this club and how they gained entry into this elite organization.
Another reason that FarmGolf will remain the world’s fastest growing sport, is due to it’s innovative leadership that is constantly searching for new and improved methods of expanding this most unique sport.
The year of 2009 may well bring an expansion of the Earth’s Most Exclusive Club.
Final 2008 FarmGolf Power Rankings Released
(FGP) On December 28th, the final 2008 FarmGolf Player Rankings were released. This was the first time that the secret FarmGolf power ranking formula had been released to the public. The secretiveness of this formula had been talked about for years, but nobody had ever been able to figure out how the golfers were ranked.
The formula uses results of the four most recent tournaments with considerable weight, while also including the previous two years of golfing, along with major wins, hole-in-ones, double eagles and finally multiplied by a skill factor.
WDTV Comes to FarmGolf
(FGP) On June 18, 2008, Joe Brocato of WDTV in Clarksburg, West Virginia traveled to FarmGolf and did a three and one-half minute feature story on FarmGolf.
The sports story was shown on the 6PM and 11PM sports report on the following day. You can view the 11PM version of Joe’s most excellent report here. We think Joe did such an outstanding job, that we will never allow that loser station in Clarksburg, doing business as WBOY, Channel 12, to set foot on the sacred grounds of FarmGolf.
