Footgolf is a brand new sport that is fast becoming popular internationally and making marks in the US. The game is a combination of soccer and golf - where the game format is identical to golf, except instead of using a golf ball and golf clubs, the players uses a soccer ball and his leg. Golf courses that also accommodate footgolf have larger holes cuts for footgolf competition.
The event is identical to that of a typical Golf Scramble Tourney. Teams are made up of 4 players. Each player gets to kick, and the one with the best kick is the ball/shot that is used for the next kick. Players will be on a regulation footgolf course and teams will have various challenges at different holes, and a tournament winner will also be determined via the lowest team score.
