As someone who played soccer as a kid, I think this would be a fun alternative to playing golf. I also a enjoy a good round of disc golf as well. Still, interesting concept.

A couple courses in my area have Foot Golf. I think that would be a fun family outing when my boys are a bit older. I put it on the same level as miniature golf.

I'm thinking no, but it would be fun to play it on a disc golf course.

Edit: I would probably be better at this than regular golf.

Eh.  If I'm on a golf course, I wanna hit my clubs.

Not a chance I'd play – I can't stand soccer or any bastardized/hybridized version of it.

 

My daughter might, though, and perhaps that's of more significance than my opinion of it.

I would much rather do this than disk golf, NTTAWWDG.  I guess there is a course that does this here in Milwaukee, of which I have been thinking about giving this a try.

Darn right! And disc golf is fun. Get here early enough on Friday and Mike and I will take you out. :)

 

I would play FootGolf. I already play on a soccer league. It'd be cool if you had to bend the ball around trees and things, too. So a combination of disc golf and real golf. Holes, not baskets. More trees (disc golf), less open spaces (golf).

I have actually never tried disk golf.  Does sound fun.  I would just like to try and bend a soccer ball like that Beckerman fella...;-)  I'll check with the "boss" and see if I can leave early that Friday...:whistle:

Disc, with a c. Erik, with a k. :-D

 

Of course, if you still have some old AOL floppies lying around or something, you're more than welcome to try disk golf.

Spelling was never one of my stronger points, come to think of it I am not sure what is.  Maybe telling jokes that nobody gets and are not funny.  There we go.

 


 

We are trying to get a little office git-to-getter going for some footy golf before the 15th.   Maybe I will Vlog it.

Played it yesterday with my son.  It was really, really fun for both of us.  For anybody who likes soccer and golf, you will like this game.  It's a par 3 (mostly) 9-hole golf course that would take 2 average people an hour or hour and 15 minutes to get through, and the two of us would have probably finished this game in about 35-40 minutes, were it not for a little waiting on the last couple of holes.  But even then, so what?  While you're waiting ... play some soccer!! :beer:

I played footgolf with our extended family (wives, sons, daughter-in-laws, grandkids) and it was a great time.  Everyone can kick a ball, even our 4 year old grandson.  Not everyone can swing a golf club.  I do not see footgolf making any inroads with traditional golfers but it is a fun game.

Very cool, I can't wait to try it.  Seems like a great activity to do with your kids as well.

I'd play it...and I hate soccer.

I agree.  My son likes regular golf as well.  But at only 5 1/2, he's not ready for a real game yet.  This game is hardly more than a nice walk around the course, with a few kicks thrown in.

 

An added bonus is that it will get him a little more familiar with the course so when we go back out there with golf clubs, it won't be as foreign or intimidating.

Great point.
