FootGolf is an emerging sport encouraging the crossover from football to golf, but quicker, more accessible and with less expensive equipment. It is a good way of getting kids interested in football, interested in golf.
FootGolf is played using the principles of golf – tee, fairway, green – but with a much larger ‘cup’ and using a football instead of a golf ball. The aim is to kick the football from the tee, down the fairway and into the hole in as few shots as possible. It is good fun and something all the family can enjoy from tots to grandparents.
Our course features nine par 3 and par 4 holes giving a total par for the course of 33. The course is totally separate from the golf course, so can be played concurrently alongside regular course golfers.
Summer April to August – 9am to 7pm (last footballs 6:30pm)
Winter – 9am to dusk (last footballs 30 mins before dusk). FootGolf mirrors The Links Course in Winter due to the shorter days. Please ring in advance on 01246 813111 to confirm what time the FootGolf course will be closing that day.
