COME CHECK OUT ONE OF THE COOLEST SPORTS AROUND!
FOOTGOLF is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf played on a golf course.
Just like golf but kicking a soccer ball. The game is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball and the object of the game is to kick the ball into a 21-inch diameter cup in the fewest number of kicks. Players will tee off or in this case KICK OFF from a set of markers and play holes ranging from 50 to 200 yards. Like golf, there will be Par 3’s, Par 4’s and Par 5’s with scores kept on a scorecard.
FootGolf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport, it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG). The American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States.
No special equipment needed. Tennis shoes or indoor soccer shoes only. Cleats are not allowed. Bring your own regulation #5 ball or rental balls are available on a first-come basis.
$25 a player – Please call for available times.
