Foot golf, a game the whole family can play

The Creek 9 par 3 Mashie golf course in Roosevelt hosts a game of a different variety – foot golf.

The course is managed by the Randpark Golf Club and is a public use facility frequented by players of all ages with varying ability and skills. But what makes this course different is the installation of a foot golf course which consists of the regular 9 holes and varying tee off positions or should we say ‘kick-off’ locations.

Quanita Peters has never played foot golf before but has some great skills.

The game itself is very similar to golf but the usual golf club and ball are replaced with a soccer ball, your feet and a much bigger hole. The ball is a regulation soccer ball and each ‘kick-off’ must be played from the tee off box while trying to avoid all trees, bushes and bunkers.

Little Akiva Halim makes sure she aims well before she kicks her ‘big golf ball’.

As in the game of golf, the person who finishes the 9 holes with the least amount of shots wins.

Foot golf player Natalie Seber said, “I was really dreading this because I am not a fan of golf at all but this was so much fun to spend a sunny Sunday with family and friends.”

Foot golf does take a little bit of skill to get the best score and it is best played in a large group starting at different times to avoid long waiting periods. It is definitely a game to be played with a few cold ones and friends. Just try not to irritate the actual golf players while having a good laugh.
