Footgolf has come to Dublin!
This fusion of Golf and Football is taking the world by storm and it’s easy to see why. All the fun of golf without stress and all the skill of football where everyone has the chance to score a goal.
The premise is quite simple: place the soccer ball into a hole measuring 52 centimeters in diameter, with the foot in the least amount of kicks possible. Sound simple, doesn’t it? Well think again. As you set off with a kick from the tee box, you will need to call upon all of your accuracy and strength to make it to the hole in the least amount of kicks possible, taking hills, bunkers, wind, ground and your nerves into consideration!
Footgolf was created in the Netherlands in 2009 when the The International FootGolf Association (IFGA) was founded in Geneva (Switzerland) in January of that year. With over twenty countries now hopping aboard the Footgolf train, this brand new sport shows no sign of slowing down.
