What is Footgolf?
Footgolf is an urban fusion combining the more traditional game of golf with a twist of football. Typically played on a golf course environment with the aim of kicking a football into an oversized hole. The challenge is to achieve this in as few shots (kicks) as possible. Sounds simple right?
In recent years footgolf has become increasingly popular, mainly due to it is inclusive for everyone to play. It is perhaps one of the easiest things to pick up and learn without the need for expert coaching. This results in immediate satisfaction, unlike golf. You also get to spend time outdoors in the fresh air with people you want to be with. Every step around the course is about having a fun and social time. This is core to our values at Brighton Footgolf. We want to grow and develop into the ultimate footgolf venue at the old Benfield Valley golf course.
Have you ever heard of footgolf? as it is perceived to be a newly developed sport. However, the first footgolf tournament took place in Holland, in 2008 consisting of professional football players from around the world. This entertaining and exciting game places great emphasis on technique and precision. Which is why once you’ve played it, you’ll want to challenge yourself to get an even better score next time. It’s also great for any football player, socially or to improve their game.
