FootGolf has arrived at Papio Greens Golf Center, which combines the popular sports of soccer and golf. 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. The Papio Greens FootGolf Course has 18 holes built within the 18 Hole Par 3 course and is designed to be able to 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. While the soccer ball doesn’t travel as far in the air as a golf ball, it will roll farther in the fairways.
