FootGolf at Mallard Creek – It’s a Kick!
Mallard Creek Golf Course is excited to be the first course to introduce FootGolf to the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon. FootGolf is a hybrid of two of the world’s most popular sports – golf and soccer, and this brand new sport is quickly growing in popularity throughout the United States. Introduced to America by Roberto Ballestrini, FootGolf has captured the attention of the PGA of America. Ted Bishop, former President of the PGA, has added a FootGolf layout to one of his courses and sees it as a great opportunity to get new people out to the course.
To play FootGolf, participants use soccer balls on a traditional golf course with 21-inch diameter holes. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf and FootGolf uses golf’s basic model including tee boxes, greens, bunkers, hazards, and 18 holes of play. The goal being to kick a soccer ball into a cup using the fewest amount of kicks possible.
FootGolf Rules & Dress Code
While the soccer ball doesn’t travel as far in the air as a golf ball, it will roll much farther in the fairways and require players to take into account the undulations, hazards, trees and other challenges of the course. FootGolf at Mallard Creek was created in conjunction with the rules of the American FootGolf League (AFGL). The sport is played in the traditional format of up to four players per group.
Dress code: Cleats are not allowed. Turf shoes or indoor soccer shoes are recommended. Bring your own ball.
