Footgolf has really taken off in the UK and it’s now the fastest growing sport in the country with over 200 clubs now open for footgolf. The Suffolk footgolf course at Stonham Barns was one of the first to open in 2013 and they have been amazed by the popularity of the sport and last year had over 5,000 people playing footgolf around the course including a number of past Ipswich Town stars, John Wark, Russell Osman and Kieron Dyer who all really enjoyed their games.
FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The game is played with a regulation #5 football at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. FootGolf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG) and by UK Footgolf (UKFG) in the UK.
