Longtime Haggin Oaks Golf Super Shop salesmen Nick Wallace laced-up, grabbed his soccer ball and luggage, and headed to Jack Hill (Gordonia-Alatamaha) State Park for the American FootGolf League National Championship!
At the tournament, he finished 2nd overall- and qualified for the 2021 FootGolf World Cup as part of the USA Team to be held in Japan next summer along with Sean McNamara, Jeremy Johnson and Giselle Barragan.
Wallace finished at -12, one stroke behind winner Jordan Godfrey of La Verne, CA and six strokes ahead of third place finishers Alex Hood of Boynton Beach, FL, Sebastian Moorefield of Arlington, VA and Nathan Shuey of Dayton, MD.
In partnership with Children’s Miracle Network, this three-day event hosted by the American FootGolf League (AFGL) was open to the public and took place at the park’s Brazell’s Creek Golf Course November 5-8. Both courses, designed by FootGolf Designer Robert S. Greer, guarantee a challenge suitable for players of all ages and skill levels.
The 2020 U.S FootGolf National Championship was a 500 point AFGL tournament and a 500 point FIFG Region ONE tournament also. Rounds were played everyday in the morning and afternoon.
FootGolf, as the name suggests, is a combination of golf and soccer in which players kick a soccer ball into 21-inch cups. This exhilarating new sport is exclusively available at very few locations around Georgia with Jack Hill State Park, located in Reidsville, Ga., being one of them. The Arcade Creek Foot GC at Haggin Oaks was one of the first in the nation.
