WHAT IS FOOTGOLF? It’s a unique blend of soccer and golf – kicking off at Riverside. It’s played with a soccer ball on a golf course, but with separate greens. The goal? Get the ball in the hole with the fewest strokes (kicks) possible. Get more details below then get your foot in the game!
FootGolf is played using the basic model of golf, with a tee box, a green, bunkers, hazards, a similar scorecard and 9 or 18 holes to play. The main differences are the cups, which are 21 inches in diameter, the ball (a #5 soccer ball), the shorter holes, and the fact that the players kick the ball instead of using clubs.
The main goal is simple: kick the ball into the hole with the fewest amount of kicks possible. FootGolf courses consists of 9 and 18 hole rounds. Each hole is paired with a number indicating the possible number of kicks a player would need to get the ball into the hole.

GENERAL RULES OF FOOTGOLF
1. NO Cleated Shoes Allowed. Indoor soccer shoes, Turf Soccer shoes or sneakers.
2. Keep it classy. Wear golf apparel at all times, including a shirt with a collar, a flat cap or a driver hat, knee-high socks, golf pants or shorts (women can wear skirts or shorts), and indoor or turf soccer shoes. (Apparel is recommend by the AFGL, not Riverside. You may wear casual clothing to play FootGolf at Riverside)
3. ID your ball. Make sure your ball is marked and easy to recognize.
4. Be courteous. Review your scorecard, wait for your turn, and make sure your kick doesn’t interfere with other players.
5. Kick it real. Your ball must be played in a single movement and your foot must be set separate from the ball, clearly behind it, before each kick. Do not reposition or move ball with your foot before the kick.
6. Be patient. Wait to play until the ball has completely come to rest. It is illegal to stop the ball from rolling with the wind.
7. Respect the ball. Play the ball from where it lies. Do not move the ball or remove jammed objects. Exception: you may mark the spot and lift the ball when it obstructs another player’s kick.
8. Respect the tee markers. Kick off your ball from a position of up to 6 feet behind the tee markers. The order of play is established on the score of the previous hole. The player with the best score kicks off first.
9. Wait for your kick. The player farthest from the hole is the first to kick the ball.
10. Deal with hazards. If the ball lands in a water hazard, retrieve or replace it within 2 steps from the closest land point from where the ball entered the hazard or place the ball at the position of the previous kick – receive a one stroke penalty.
11. Respect boundaries. If the ball lands out of bounds, place the ball within 2 steps from where the ball crossed – receive a one stroke penalty.
