What is Foot Golf?
Foot Golf is a combination of the popular sports of Soccer and Golf. The game is played with a regulation #5 Soccer ball at a golf course with shortened holes and 21-inch diameter cups. The rules correspond to the rules of golf.
Foot Golf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport it is regulated by the Federation for International Foot Golf. GlenLakes is the first certified 18-hole Foot Golf course in Southern Alabama.
