FootGolf is a very ‘addictive’ sport that combines the best of the popular sport of soccer with an elite sport like golf. FootGolf originated in the Netherlands and has spread to over 16 countries throughout the world. Similar to golf, the players’ intent is to kick a ball into the hole with the least amount of strokes possible. FootGolf uses the basic model of golf, with a tee box, a green, bunkers, hazards and 18 holes of play. There is par for each hole, mimicking golf’s scorecard, and you still play as a twosome, threesome or foursome. The main differences are the cups, which are 21 inches in diameter, shorter holes (most people cannot kick a soccer ball further than 50 yards) and the lack of equipment needed (no need to carry around heavy golf clubs in FootGolf!). River Ridge is the first FootGolf course in California and has aligned itself with the American FootGolf League (AFGL) which is the governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States.
