WHAT IS FOOTGOLF?
FootGolf is a very ‘addictive’ sport that combines the best of the popular sport of soccer with an elite sport like golf. Similar to golf, the players’ intent is to kick a ball into the hole with the least amount of strokes possible.
FootGolf uses the basic model of golf, with a tee box, a green, bunker, hazards and 18 holes of play. There is par for each hole, mimicking golf’s scorecard, and you still play as a twosome, threesome or foursome.
The main differences are the cups, which are 21 inches in diameter, shorter holes (most people cannot kick a soccer ball further than 50 yards) and the lack of equipment needed (no need to carry around heavy golf clubs in FootGolf!).
- All players must wear proper attire. Golf cleats are not permitted.
- Players are allowed to bring their own soccer ball, but we will have soccer balls to rent.
- Just like golf, please keep up with the group in front of you. If your group falls too far behind, you will be asked to skip a hole to catch up.
- Please be respectful of other footgolfers and golfers on the course.
- When kicking off at the beginning of each hole, players must start behind the markers, but no farther back than 2 yards.
- The ball must be played in a single movement. Your foot should be separate from the ball, clearly behind, before kicking.
- The player farthest from the hole, kicks first.
- You must wait until the ball stops before you may kick it again, even if it is being blown by the wind.
- Play the ball where it lies, even if it lies behind a tree or in a sand trap.
- If your kick ends up in the water, the player must take a 1 point penalty. The player’s ball should be placed within two steps of where the ball landed in the water.
- Only on the green is it permitted to lift and clean your soccer ball.
