“FootGolf is the new sport that combines the skills of soccer with the rules of golf"
If you can kick a soccer ball, you can play FootGolf! Footgolf is a precision sport, in which players kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible.The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf and players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible.
The origins of FootGolf are unclear as they can be attributed to many countries or people at the same time, as early as 2001. The first nine-hole FootGolf tournament on a golf course, and played as the sport is known today, was organized in the Netherlands in 2008. The American FootGolf League in the US has grown the game to nearly 500 courses in 48 states. The first ever FootGolf tournament was organized in the Netherlands by Michael Jansen, and played by a mix of Dutch and Belgian professional footballers. After this, many countries began to organize matches, events, tournaments, even national leagues and associations around this game.
The rules are simple, just like traditional golf: Take a regulation soccer ball and kick it, one stroke at a time, into a large cup near the putting green on a regular golf hole. (Footgolf holes often are built into an existing golf course.) The player who gets the fewest strokes over the course of the game wins. Origins course will be a 9 hole course.
