We are happy to announce that the hottest trend sweeping the nation, FootGolf, is coming to Walt Disney World! Guests are now invited to play a round of FootGolf at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course.
FootGolf is a precision sport; a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, but more closely related to golf. Players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened length holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible. Rules are very similar to the rules of golf, and bunkers, hazards and golf course characteristics help to improve the challenge of the game. FootGolf and golf can be played alongside each other on the same course and both types of play can exist harmoniously together. Since the game is played on a golf course, the basic uniform of FootGolf is golf apparel, with indoor or turf soccer shoes, or running shoes. Knee length Argyle socks are customary, but not necessary, as is the use of a Flat Cap.
FootGolf and golf are played alongside each other at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course. Tee times can be booked to play 18 holes of FootGolf either in front of or behind those playing 9 holes of traditional golf. When played in groups of four, 18 holes of FootGolf should take approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, much like that of 9 holes of traditional golf.
Disney’s Oak Trail FootGolf course measures in at 2,438 yards over a par for the course of 69 with a challenging selection of par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s. Traditional golf is played to the blue pin flags at Disney’s Oak Trail course while FootGolf is identified by its official color of orange. There are no forced carries over any waterways on any of the 18 holes, therefore, young or old, it is fun for the whole family!
Sounds like a fun way to spend a non-park day at Disney! Can’t wait to give it a try!
