BASIC FOOTGOLF RULES
Footwear – no football boots with studs allowed
The ball must be a standard Size 5 football. You can bring your own or hire at the venue
Choose different coloured balls for each player in your group so you know which ball is yours
The first kick must be taken between the “Tee” markers for each hole
The ball must be kicked with the upper part of the shoe only – no pushing or scooping is allowed
The ball must stop moving before the next kick is taken
If someone’s ball is in the way let them play first to speed up play. Or, the position should be marked by that player and the ball picked up, then put it back in the same place after your ball is played through.
The ball should be played from where it lies at all times, except the following:
The ball must not be played from the golf greens, please move your ball to the side and continue. NO penalty is applied.
If the ball goes into the water, long grass or scrub, the ball should be retrieved carefully and placed within two steps of the point where it went in. ADD one shot penalty to your score for that hole
Please do not enter the water to retrieve your ball. Use the nets provided and/or wait for the ball to come to the edge of the pond. Let other groups play through if necessary.
You do not need to take the flag out of the hole, even if your ball is on the “green”.
The person whose ball is furthest from the flag should play first
If someone’s ball is in the way, the position should be marked and the ball picked up, then put back in the same place.
Record how many kicks you had for each hole and record the score on the scorecard
The person with the lowest score should play first on the next hole. At the first hole, play a game of Kick Ups to determine who goes first!
i.e. longest time goes first, shortest time goes last.
Please take care of the course, collect your rubbish, and be courteous to other players
If there is lightning about, please go to the Rain Shelters, or back to the Food Court.
Have fun, have a laugh!
