WHAT IS FOOTGOLF?
Footgolf is an urban fusion combining the more traditional game of golf with a football-flavoured twist. Typically played in 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 being inclusive for everyone to play. It is perhaps the easiest thing to pick up and learn without the need for expert coaching. This means that, unlike golf, footgolf is immediately satisfying and fun to play. It’s also a great opportunity to get outside and spend time with your friends and family.
We’re all about having a fun and social time. You don’t need any skills to play footgolf, in fact you may even have more fun without them! Laugh at your friends and be laughed at in return, as you take on the Brighton Footgolf course together.
Footgolf is often perceived as 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. That’s 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.
Footgolf is the perfect social activity for you and your family, friends or work colleagues. Its distinct gameplay isn’t as physical as football or technique-focused as golf. It’s simple, pure fun right from the get-go.
The game will benefit any football player regardless of ability, giving you a chance to improve your technique and striking ability. However, footgolf is primarily about bringing people together in an active environment, making it great for families, corporate events, birthdays, team bonding, football teams and enhancing community spirit.
If you aren’t a fan of football or golf, or feel you simply don’t have the skills, you’ll still have a blast with footgolf. The game is so easy to pick up and play that you’re sure to be laughing and having fun in no time, and we’re sure you’ll be back again soon.
