“Located at the Legacy (Municipal) Golf Course from 9:00-Dark”
- FootGolf is a precision sport; a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, but more closely related to golf.
- Players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened length holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible.
- FootGolf rules are very similar to the rules of golf, and bunkers, hazards and golf course characteristics help to improve the challenge of the game. FootGolf and golf can be played alongside each other on the same course and both types of play can exist harmoniously together.
- Since the game is played on a golf course, the basic uniform of FootGolf is golf apparel, with indoor or turf soccer shoes, or running shoes. Knee length Argyle socks are customary, but not necessary, as is the use of a Flat Cap. A sturdy walking or athletic shoe is recommended to protect your feet from injury!
