What is Football golf? Football Golf uses the same rules as golf but instead players don’t use a club, they kick a ball with the fewest number of kicks/shots possible to score in the hole.

Depending on ability and group size, time spent on the course will vary, but allow two hours.

Please note: Dogs are not allowed on the course, but well behaved dogs can sit in the picnic area accompanied by an adult. Dogs are not to be left in cars in warm weather.

Rules of Play

1. The aim of the game is to play with the lowest possible amount of kicks of the ball.

2. Each tee sign will explain how the hole is to be played; if there are no instructions on the tee sign you can just kick your ball towards the hole.

3. Players must play from the artificial grass teeing area only, located at the start of each hole.

4. If your ball lands on any other fairway or course then there is a one-kick/shot penalty. (If a ball lands on a walkway in between holes there is NO penalty).

5. If when teeing off the ball ends up rolling back behind the tee players may pick the ball up and re tee the ball for their next kick with no penalty shot.

6. The ball must be played when and where it stops – no kicking moving balls.

7. Playing in a group, players kick their ball in turns – If another players’ ball is in the way when playing your kick/shot you can ask the other player to remove the ball and mark the place. The winner of the previous hole plays first on the next hole.

8. If a ball is hit by another ball, only the ball that was hit must be placed back in its original position.

9. Kicking the ball must be in one movement, no resting of foot on the ball before kicking.

10. While kicking the ball, one foot must touch the ground, no jump or clamping of ball.

11. Course obstacles cannot be moved, please take care when navigating your way around the course and holes.

12. The maximum score for each hole is 3 x par (e.g a Par 3 = 3) (Par 4 = 4) (par 5 = 5)
