FootGolf was created by combining the two sports of football and golf.
The rules for the most part, though simplified, generally follow the rules of golf. The course layouts and playing challenges are also similar to those found in golf.
Footgolf Malaysia are the governing body for the sport in Malaysia and the exclusive member of the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG).
The game of FootGolf is rapidly expanding across the globe with courses now in over 36 countries.

WHAT WE DO
HOW TO PLAY
Please wear golf shoes or regular sports shoes. NO soccer boots with studs or cleats are allowed.
Appropriate attire, follow the dress regulations of the course where you will be playing. We prefer collared polo shirts, long socks and a flat cap. But it's not compulsory!
Bring along a size 5 football (or you can rent one at the course)
That’s it, what are you waiting for?
The game is played the same way as golf, except player’s use a football instead of a golf ball and the ball is kicked rather than struck with a club, working towards a 21-inch “cup” in place of the usual golf hole. The player who plays the 9 or 18 holes with the fewest shots wins. Footgolf as sport is generally played on golf courses, though it also can be played on other grassed areas or specially built footgolf courses. The first shot has to be played from the tee box, and to reach the hole, bunkers, trees, water and hills have to be crossed or avoided. This means a powerful shot is useful, but not decisive. Reading the course, a smart approach and accurate putting are even more important.
