Foot Golf at Golf Country
Foot Golf is the magical game that brings the two beloved sports of futbol (soccer) and golf together. If you enjoy either of these two sports Foot Golf is going to be right up your alley. If you care to see what the game looks like here is a video giving a little overview of what Foot Golf looks like...
The game is played similarly to golf, with the exception that players use a soccer ball instead of a golf ball, and the ball is kicked rather than struck with a club, working toward a 21-inch "cup" in place of the usual golf hole. The player who finishes the course with the fewest shots wins. Indeed, footgolf is often played on golf courses, though it may also be played on specially built grass footgolf courses. The first shot has to be played from the tee box, and bunkers, trees, water and hills must be crossed or avoided in order to reach the hole.
The game is played with a regulation No. 5 soccer ball. Because football-soccer balls travel less distance than golf balls, footgolf is played on holes shorter than those used in golf. For instance, one course in California features holes that average 157 yards. Pars are typically 5 shots or fewer.
Paul Collinson of the UK Footgolf Association has observed that, compared to golf, footgolf is quicker to play, more accessible, and does not require expensive equipment.
