The best new trend in golf
What you need to know
What is FootGolf? FootGolf is a precision sport, a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, being more closely related to golf. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf and players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible. The same rules of course etiquette and safety that apply for golfers apply for FootGolfers (be aware of your surroundings, be respectful of others in the field of play, repair any damage you or others have done to maintain course conditions for those who are next to play).
What do I need to play? Since the game is played on a golf course, the basic uniform of FootGolf is golf apparel, with indoor or turf soccer shoes. Absolutely no soccer cleats of any kind. Balls can be rented for $5 / round from Minneopa or you can bring your own (Standard #5 Ball).
Can Golfers and FootGolfers share the course at the same time? The answer is YES! It requires management but it can work. Golfers and FootGolfers use the same course routing, but not the same holes and FootGolfers do not use the golf greens. The time to play for each runs at the same pace (about 2 hours for 9 holes), allowing us to send a foursome of FootGolfers out followed by a foursome of golfers.
What does it cost? Playing 9 holes of FootGolf is $10 (17 & under/60 & over $8). Playing 18 holes of FootGolf is $15 (Junior/Senior $13). If you'd like a golf cart, you will be charged the normal rate for regular golfers.
When can I play? As of now, Minneopa is offering FootGolf Monday through Friday except during regular Golf League Play (Mon & Thu nights after 5:30) or during Golf Tournaments. Please book tee times just like you would for regular golf: book online through this site or call ahead for tee times.
Minneopa Golf Course is an Accredited (or Certified) FootGolf Course of the American FootGolf League (AFGL) that promotes the sport of FootGolf under the rules and guidelines of the Federation of International FootGolf (FIFG).
