FootGolf, which combines the popular sports of soccer and golf is available now at Dad Miller Golf Course. FootGolf originated in the Netherlands and has spread to over 16 countries throughout the world. In the 2016 World FootGolf Championships in Argentina, the US National Team upset the home team to claim best in the world status.
To play FootGolf, players use soccer balls on a traditional golf course with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules are very similar to the rules of golf. The Dad Miller FootGolf Course has 18-holes built within the front nine of the golf course. The course is designed to be able to play traditional golf and FootGolf simultaneously.
FootGolf uses golf's basic model including tee boxes, greens, bunkers, hazards and 18 holes of play. Scorecards display par scores for each hole as in regular golf. The sport is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf. The American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States. The Dad Miller FootGolf Course has been certified by AFGL and was already approached to be a stop for a National FootGolf Tour Event.
The sport is played in the traditional format of up to four players per group with FootGolfers either walking or using golf carts. Holes are roughly half the distance of a regular golf hole. While the soccer ball doesn't travel as far in the air as a golf ball, it will roll much farther in distance.
