What is FootGolf?

Four generations of FootGolfers group shot at Meadow Park Golf Course.FootGolf is a new and exciting game that is a blend of soccer and golf that originated in the Netherlands, created a stir world-wide, and has now landed at Meadow Park Golf Course.

FootGolf is a fun fast paced game that can be played in approximately 90 minutes. It is played with a soccer ball on a golf course with a tee box, green bunkers, hazards, scorecard and 18 holes to play. The differences are the cups, which are 21" in diameter, the ball (a #5 soccer ball), shorter holes, and the fact that the players kick the ball instead of using clubs. The main goal is to get the ball in the hole with the least strokes (kicks) possible.
