Footgolf Basic Rules

  • Wear appropriate clothing- golf cap, collared shirt.

  • Your ball must be easy to identify (and size 5).

  • Review the scorecard and wait your turn. Make sure the group ahead of you is by the green of the 1st hole before you start. On short holes make sure the entire hole is clear before kicking off.

  • Kick off your ball from a position up to two yards behind the black and yellow tee markers.

  • The ball must be played in a single movement. You are not allowed to push the ball with the top or bottom of your foot. Your foot should be separate from the ball, clearly behind, before each kick.

  • Wait to play until the ball has completely come to rest. (It is not legal to stop the ball from rolling with the wind.)

  • Play the ball from where it lies. You are not allowed to move the ball or remove jammed objects. Exception: You may mark the spot and lift the ball when it may obstruct the other player’s kick or ball in any way.

  • The player farthest from the hole is the first to kick the ball.

  • If the ball lands in a water hazard, retrieve or replace it within 2 steps from the closest land point from where the ball entered the hazard, receiving a one stroke penalty or you can place the ball at the position of the previous kick and receive a one stroke penalty.
