What is footgolf?

 

As the term "Soccergolf or Footgolf" already shows, it is a mixture of the both sports soccer and golf. 

Footgolf is originate in the north of Europe. In the 1980s the first facilities inaugurated in Sweden. Meanwhile footgolf is an accredited sport; national and even world championships already took place.

Similar to golf also footgolf is played on 18 lanes (with Par 72). A standard soccerball has to be holed into an oversized hole in the ground, just with the foot (without using a racket) and with the possible lowest amount of kicks. To make it more interesting different kinds of obstacles are placed on the lanes.  

A new recreational fun for the whole family, for clubs, groups, birthdays, school classes as well as companies, which all of them can book the facility even outside our normal opening hours. 

Different from playing golf there is no special training needed. Everybody can start playing immediately and without following long instructions. It's a perfect combination of fun, concentration, coordination and exercise. Footgolf is the pure recreational fun for EVERYBODY! 

We are looking forward to your visit! 

Rules

  1. The obstacles of the particular fairway have to be played through, around, over or above, as shown on the boards. 
  2. The ball must be kicked with the foot directly from the ground. 
  3. Every encounter with the ball is counted as a kick or shot. 
  4. The indicated par figure for every fairway is a guideline for the number of possible shots. Each player has a triple of the par figures indicated as a maximum. 
    Example: fairway 1 : Par 3 = maximum 9 trials.
    If a player doesn't hole in the ball with 9 trials, one will be quoted the par four times (in this case 12) on his score card.   
  5. If the ball lands in the high grass (rough), the play has to be continued from there. 
  6. If the ball lands on another fairway or out of the soccergolf course, one penalty point will be added and the player has to continue from the point the ball was shot at last. 
  7. Each player of a group plays with his ball. The particular fairways are allowed to be played when no other player of another group is on the fairway. The players play alternately. 
  8. If another ball interferes the desired shot direction the other ball may be secured (mark the position and remove the ball for the other shot). If the ball has not been secured and hit, it has to be put back to it's position; but the shot ball has to remain on it's new position.          
  9. The winner is the player that counts the fewest points after 18 holes!  
  10. The flag always remains in the target hole!
