How to play FootGolf
Make your way around our 18 hole course using a size 4 or 5 football in groups of four. The object of the game is to get the ball into the hole using only your feet in the fewest number of shots possible. Combine power and precision to get the ball in that hole!
The basic FootGolf rules:
Review the score card and wait for your turn. Make sure your kick will not interfere with other players
The ball must be played in a single movement. Your foot should be set separately from the ball, clearly behind, before the kick
Wait to play until the ball has completely come to rest. It's not legal to stop the ball from rolling with the wind
Kick off your ball from a position up to two metres behind the round markers. The order is established based on the score of the previous hole. The player with the best score will be the first to kick off on the next hole followed by the second, etc.
Play the ball from where it lies: you're not allowed to move the ball or remove jammed objects. Exception: you may mark the spot and lift the ball when it may obstruct another players kick or ball in any way.
The player farthest from the hole, is the first to kick the ball
If the ball lands in a water hazard, and it's safe to do so, retrieve or replace it within two steps from the closest land point from where the ball entered the water, receiving one penalty point; or you can place the ball at the position of the previous kick and receive one penalty point
Only on the green may the balls be picked up to be cleaned or replaced. Regardless of the distance from the hole, the hole must be completed. "Giving" to the opponent is not allowed.
