FootGolf

  • Playing is easy and prior experience in soccer or golf is not necessary! There’s no clubs, no cleats and no goalie – just your friends (like golf), your feet and your ball (like soccer). Players kick a regulation Size 5 soccer ball, starting from the tee box, along the course and try to sink it in the (considerably larger) cup in as few kicks as possible. The ball must always be kicked by the player’s foot – no rolling or dribbling allowed. The lowest total wins, just like golf. Compared to golf, FootGolf is quicker to play, more accessible to players, and does not require expensive equipment.
