To play FootGolf, athletes use soccer balls on a traditional golf course with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. FootGolf uses golf’s basic model including tee boxes, greens, bunkers, hazards and 18 holes of play. The sport is played in the traditional format of up to four players per group with FootGolfers either walking the course or using golf carts. Holes are roughly half the distance of a regular golf hole. While the soccer ball doesn’t travel as far in the air as a golf ball, it will roll much farther in the fairways. Scorecards display par scores for each hole as in regular golf. At Haggin Oaks, we have designed an 18 hole FootGolf course on the Front Nine of our Arcade Creek Golf Course.
