Simply take two great sports, football and golf and combine them to create FootGolf, the fastest growing sport in the world. To put it simply, you play golf with your feet. There's no heavy clubs to carry around and no need to speed hours on the course. All you need is some trainers, a size 5 football, your friends and an hour or two.

There are 10 basic rules to follow:

  1. Wear golf apparel all the time
  2. Your ball must be easy to identify
  3. Review the score card and wait your turn. Make sure your kick will not interfere with other players.
  4. The ball must be played in a single movement. Your foot should be set separate from the ball, clearly behind, before the kick.
  5. Wait to play until the ball has completely come to rest. (It is not legal to stop the ball from rolling with the wind)
  6. Kick off your ball from a position up to two meters behind round markers
  7. Play the ball from where it lies: it's not allowed to move the ball or remove jammed objects.
  8. The player farthest from the hole, is the first to kick the ball.
  9. If the ball lands in a water hazard, retrieve it within 2 steps from the closest land point from where the ball entered the water.
  10. Only on the greens may the balls be picked up to be cleaned or replaced.  

If you fancy giving it a go, we play each Sunday from 2pm and it's just £10 per person for 18 holes.
