Then here's the sport to try this summer! Just like golf, except you use a soccer ball and wear argyle socks if you want plus is looks better if you do. FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The game is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball at Woodland golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. FootGolf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport, it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG). The American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States.
