Unlike disc golf, FootGolf is ideally suited for use on existing golf courses. In fact, it was designed for it. For this reason, its best use is for clubs that wish to boost interest in under-used golf courses. Like disc golf, it too is experiencing rapid growth.
More than 300 FootGolf courses have been installed on existing golf courses in 43 U.S. states since 2011. It can be implemented with minimal initial costs ($1,500 for nine holes or $3,000 for 18 holes with flags).
In the sport, players kick a regulation soccer ball into 21-inch holes, which are typically installed in the rough at least 20 yards away from the green and away from the typical landing areas of golf balls. Eighteen holes of FootGolf can normally fit onto a nine-hole golf course.
