It's crazy but it’s true – to stop the bickering between you golf and football fans and which activity is best for your Stag do, Footgolf is the perfect compromise. Yes, it IS a real sport and pretty big in America where it originated but sorry, we’re not flying you there, why bother when we have some brilliant Footgolf courses here in the UK?
Still trying you get your head around it? OK, first imagine a golf course, with fairways and bunkers etc, then see the holes large enough for a football instead of a golf ball to drop into. Aha, starting to get it?
Next you’re not hitting the balls with a club, but with your foot. Yes, you are literally kicking a football around a golf course and getting the ball into the flagged holes. INGENIOUS!
Play 6, 9, 12 or 18 holes which are strategically placed, as of course your football won’t travel as far as a golf ball would be hit. This fantastic creation brings you the best of both worlds, in a most gentlemanly way … there’s no tackling guys, remember the golf element.
Faster-paced than golf but still using those skills of power, judgement and aim, this will appeal to many age-groups who love a kick-around but without the full-on contact and still with that mild (or not so mild) hint of competition.
