For the first time ever, guests at Disney’s Oak Trail golf course at Walt Disney World is offering FootGolf, a combination of the sports soccer and golf.
FootGolf rules are quite similar to those of traditional golf, and includes traditional course hazards and characteristics to make the game more challenging. The game is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball on shortened length holes. The goal is to get the ball 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible.
Since the game is played on a golf course, players should wear golf apparel with indoor or turf soccer shoes or running shoes.
The 18-hole FootGolf course is certified by the American FootGolf League, which is the governing body for the sport in the U.S. Tee times are available to play 18 holes of FootGolf in front of or behind those playing nine holes of traditional golf. When played in groups of four, 18 holes of FootGolf should take about the same time as that of 9 holes of traditional golf, running at about 2 hours and 15 minutes.
Disney’s Oak Trail FootGolf course measures at 2,438 yards, and has a challenging selection of par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s. While the traditional golf is played to the blue pin flags, orange is the official color identifier for FootGolf. The course has no forced carries over any waterways on any of the 18 holes, making it fun for all ages.
