FootGolf is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball and shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups. FootGolf uses golf’s basic model including tee boxes, greens, bunkers, hazards and 9 holes of play. Scorecards display par scores for each hole as in regular golf. FootGolf is played in the traditional format of up to four players per group with players either walking the course or using golf carts. Holes are roughly half the distance of a regular golf hole. While the soccer ball doesn’t travel as far in the air as a golf ball, it will roll much farther in the fairways.
FootGolf at Elliot Golf Course will be regulated by the United States FootGolf Association (USFGA) which is the largest governing body for FootGolf in the United States. The USFGA serves the game through its support of regional and state associations as well as local, state, regional and national competitions. Once built, the course will receive national and international recognition through the USFGA and will be a member of that organization along with Illinois FootGolf Association (IFGA.) Being a Certified FootGolf Course will attract players and events from around the world.
