FootGolf, which combines the popular sports of soccer and golf has debuted at both Northwest and Sligo Creek Golf Course in Silver Spring Maryland. These courses are both in Montgomery County and just a short drive from Washington DC, Prince Georges County and Northern Virginia. To play FootGolf, athletes use soccer balls on a traditional golf course with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. Both courses have 18 holes (built within the Inner nine at Northwest) and are designed to be able play both traditional golf and FootGolf simultaneously.
FootGolf uses golf’s basic model including tee boxes, greens, bunkers, hazards and 18 holes of play. Scorecards display par scores for each hole as in regular golf. The sport is governed by the Federation for International FootGolf and has grown primarily internationally.
The sport is played in the traditional format of up to four players per group with FootGolfers either walking the course or using golf carts. Holes are roughly half the distance of a regular golf hole. While the soccer ball doesn’t travel as far in the air as a golf ball, it will roll much farther in the fairways.
