Frequently Asked Questions, rates, rules and other information can be found below.
What Is Footgolf?
FootGolf is the combination of golf and soccer played at your local golf course. It is played by kicking a soccer ball on a golf course with the objective of getting the ball into an oversized (21-inch in diameter) hole in the fewest amount of kicks. It’s 99% golf minus the equipment.
When Can You Play?
Players make tee times just as golfers would. Depending on the course they may have designated times for Footgolf. Many courses have successfully integrated Footgolf into their “anytime” schedules. This allows golfers and footgolfers to play simultaneously throughout the day!
Why Play Footgolf?
Anyone can do it! You just have to be able to kick a ball. It is fun for the whole family. It’s much less
expensive, and there is no equipment required other than a soccer ball. It is great exercise. It can be used as a social or team building experience. You can hold fundraiser or charity outings as well. It’s quick. Players can play an 18-hole course in 2 hours. It is for both recreational players and competitive players.
Who invented Footgolf and when?
Footgolf was invented by half the people we know who have ever kicked a soccer ball. But, the rules were first penciled in 2009 for an event which took place in the Netherlands. Since then, country after country has followed the example and it has now spread to over 30 countries worldwide.
What do I need to play?
Bring your own soccer ball. A #5 for adults and #3 or#4 for juniors. Wear turf shoes, athletic shoes, or indoor soccer shoes. NO SOCCER CLEATS ALLOWED.
Dress in golf clothes or comfortable athletic wear. Shirts are to be worn at all times while playing.
Do I have to make a tee time?
We strongly recommend that you call in advance to book your Tee Time to insure you and your group are able to get off during you desired time. Tee times are subject to course availability due to leagues, outings and events.
Are their age restrictions to play at Footgolf?
There is no age restriction as long as your group keeps the pace of play at a good rate for the other golfers. Players 10 and under must be supervised by a player or non playing adult 18 years old or older.
Do you walk or use a cart?
Either. But it is actually quicker to walk because you are not hitting the ball hundreds of yards. Walking also encourages exercise and the endurance component of the game.

|Walking 18 Holes||Junior – $8|
|Riding 18 Holes||Adult – $17|
|Riding 18 Holes||Junior – $15|
