LARGO, Fla. – Golf is a popular sport in Florida, but if searching for a tiny ball all afternoon isn’t your idea of fun, there’s now a new way to hit the links.
Footgolf is part soccer and part golf. Instead of hitting a golf ball down the fairway, you kick a soccer ball. Other than that, the rules are pretty much the same.
“Footgolf is not hard, there's no skill level required,” said Justin Trout, who is the golf and Aahletic specialist at the Largo Golf Course.
Footgolf is played on the traditional course at the Largo Golf Course. A separate, footgolf green is on each hole, with a tin large enough to fit a soccer ball.
Prices vary from course to course, but a round of footgolf typically ranges from $12-$20.
There are several footgolf courses in the bay area.
Largo Golf Course - Largo, Fla.
Dunedin Stirling Links - Dunedin, Fla.
Terrace Hill Golf Club - Temple Terrace, Fla.
Summerfield Crossings Golf Club - Riverview, Fla.
Willowbrook Golf Course - Winter Haven, Fla.
