The goal is to get the soccer ball into the FootGolf hole in as few kicks as possible.
FootGolf, which combines soccer and golf into one sport, is going to tee off (or kick off?) from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at Palm Harbor Golf Club, located at 20 Palm Harbor Drive, according to a news release.
The goal is to get the soccer ball into the FootGolf hole in as few kicks as possible. The “holes” are 21-inch diameter cups set on the golf course on shortened holes. Golf apparel is encouraged. Soccer spikes or cleats are not allowed.
FootGolf will be offered as a regular program at the golf course every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening, beginning Saturday, Aug. 18, with tee times starting at 5 p.m. The cost is $8 per person, with the cart included. Official rules require a No. 5 size soccer ball. Players can bring their own or rent one for $3.
FootGolfers will need to make a tee time by calling the pro shop at 386-986-GOLF (4653) or online at www.palmharborgolfclub.com.
“Our community has been asking for FootGolf," Parks and Recreation Director Alex Boyer said in a release. “FootGolf will provide teens, young adults and families a new way to get outdoors for exercise and fun."
The new program will be set up on Palm Harbor’s “loop” – the first four golf holes. Regular golf will continue as usual but won’t be held on the same holes as FootGolf during the weekend evening hours FootGolf is played.
