Soccer Ball + Golf + Scenic Course = Foot Golf!

The sport of FootGolf is taking hold in the DC region as two courses are now open in Loudoun county and booking tee-times (or, would that be kick off times?).

The sport is played on a golf course with, yes, a soccer ball with the objective of kicking it into a 21-inch diameter hole. Like golf, each hole has a par, or average score.  And though it may seem counter-intuitive for soccer players, cart rentals are an option!

Humor aside, this is a highly organized, international sport, as you can see from the video below.  Both the Lake Ridge Golf Club and General’s Ridge opened courses in 2014.  And planning is underway for the “PWC FootGolf Open” in May 2015!
