Its soccer, its golf… it's both! FootGolf is an exciting and challenging new sport taking the country by storm and is now available at Links & Tees Golf Course on Lake Street in Addison.
FootGolf is a new way to enjoy time on a golf course by using a soccer ball for a faster paced game. The game is played much like a traditional game of golf where players kick a soccer ball from the tee to the hole; however the soccer ball is "putted" into a 21-inch cup. FootGolf is easy to enjoy as a family because the rules are easy to follow and appeals to golfers and non-golfers of all ages.
For the safety of staff and patrons, FootGolf will not be played at the same time as traditional golf on the same course. Links & Tees golf course will be available exclusively for FootGolf from 3:00pm until dusk on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Players are welcome to bring their own #5 soccer ball or rent one from Links & Tees. The dress code for FootGolf is casual and tennis shoes or turf shoes are preferred. Rubber or steel cleat-shoes will not be allowed in order to protect the greens.
