Footgolf Melbourne Book and play today!
Looking for a fun afternoon out for the whole family? Or maybe something challenging to entertain friends or colleagues at a corporate event.
Since 2013, FootGolf Australia has been developing the sport of FootGolf – a unique and fun way of combining golf and soccer into a game on the golf course! Like golf, FootGolf is a precision sport which combines the power and vigour of soccer with the skill and accuracy of the traditional game of golf.
Eynesbury is one of a small number of golf courses in Victoria that offers FootGolf as an alternative, making golf courses more accessible to a larger number of people. Located only 40 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, why not grab a group, pull on your kicking shoes and book a game today!
What is FootGolf?
FootGolf is the perfect combination of golf and soccer. The aim of the game is to kick a standard sized soccer ball into an enlarged hole on the golf course… and do so in less kicks than your opponents! Sound simple enough? Eynesbury’s FootGolf course is played over 12 holes, and two people playing a round will take up to 1.5 hours.
Accessibility is one of the best things about FootGolf! It’s a game that can be played by a wide range of ages and abilities, without the need for any formal training or techniques to get started.
It’s recommended you wear casual comfortable clothes when playing FootGolf. Anything that allows you to move easily and kick a ball – think active wear, sports clothes and the like. Comfortable shoes are also recommended. Soccer shoes with hard cleats are not permitted, and it is recommended that open toed shoes are not worn.
Like a regular game of golf, the maximum number of players in a group is four. This ensures that the game can run smoothly, as larger groups can sometimes interrupt the run of play for following groups. If you do have a larger group (e.g. families with children) please get in touch as we will try to accommodate.
Please see below a complete list of FootGolf rules below:
- No soccer shoes with hard cleats
- 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.
- If one players ball strikes another players ball, the ball at rest shall be returned to its original position
- Play the ball from where it lies
- If your ball obstructs another player’s kick, you may mark the spot and lift the ball.
- The player furthest from the hole is the first to kick the ball.
- The player with the best score will kick off first on the next hole
- If the ball lands in a water hazard, drop the ball within 2 steps from the nearest clear land point of entry (+1 penalty).
- If the ball lands in a bunker, play the ball from where it lies. You must rake the bunker after you play.
- Show consideration for golfers and other players at all times.
A typical game of FootGolf with two people takes approximately 1 hour over 9 holes. Eynesbury FootGolf is played over 12 holes and can take up to 1.5 hours.
