What is FootGolf?
It’s soccer plus golf! Why they didn’t call it SoccerGolf is beyond us, but we do know it’s a lot of fun! You play the rules of golf with a soccer ball and soccer ball sized golf holes. If you’ve played mini golf, you know the rules already.
Where do I play Footgolf?
You play on the golf course itself. 14 of the footgolf holes are on the first 9 golf holes, and the remaining 4 holes are in our practice holes near the clubhouse.
What equipment do I need to play?
A soccer ball and comfortable shoes – that’s it! Please, no soccer cleats as they tear up the golf course. Indoor or turf shoes are perfect, but sneakers work just as well.
What ages can play?
Soccer is the world’s sport since every age can play – the same is true for FootGolf!
How long does it take to play?
Depends how far you can strike the ball, but on average a round takes 2 and a half hours to play all 18 holes.
Will there be golfers playing as well?
Yes, but like with regular golf we use specific starting times to space people out on the course. If you do catch a group, or have them catch you, please be respectful of everyone’s time.
When can I play?
We offer FootGolf every day after 3pm! If you have a larger group we can be flexible with earlier starting times. When the days are shorter, we may adjust the times to allow for more FootGolfing.
What do I have to wear?
Anything except a birthday suit! If you want to show up in a three piece suit you’re welcome to, but it might be a bit uncomfortable. Any athletic apparel is usually what our footgolfer’s wear, but there is no specific dress code.
Do I need to reserve a time?
How many people can play at one time?
Similar to golf, FootGolfers play in groups of four, but if you have 5 we can squeeze the extra FootGolfer into the same group. With 6 or more players there would have to be multiple groups.
How long of a walk is it?
Depends on how accurate you are! If you’re kicking it all around the course then you’ll end up walking extra. There are golf cart rentals available.

FootGolf is played on 9 holes of the Bradford Creek Public Golf Course.
The rules and etiquette of footgolf largely mirror that of the game of golf, teeing off and playing consecutive shots until you have knocked your ball in the hole (21-inch diameter cups). A footgolf course has par 3's, 4's and 5's, and you have to manage your way around the course in the least number of strokes as possible, avoiding water hazards, bunkers and managing the natural terrain of the course.
Hours: The FootGolf course is open daily and weekends at 3:00 p.m.
Attire: Traditional golf attire is recommended: shorts or pants, collared shirt, and indoor soccer shoes or athletic shoes (no soccer cleats allowed).
Needed: Only yourself and a soccer ball. We have rental balls in the pro shop if needed.
*Must be 16 years of age to rent a cart.
