For the very first time, Disney’s Oak Trail golf course at the Walt Disney World Resort is now offering the game of FootGolf to it’s guests. Operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, Disney’s Oak Trail FootGolf course is 18 holes and certified by the American FootGolf League (AFGL). The course is designed with tee times to be booked for 18 holes of FootGolf in front of or behind those playing 9 holes of traditional golf. A game with 4 players should take approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, similar to 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. Young or old, it is fun for the whole family!
So what exactly is FootGolf?
FootGolf is a precision sport, a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, but more closely related to golf. Players kick a soccer ball at a golf course on shortened length holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible. FootGolf rules are very similar to the rules of golf, and bunkers, hazards and golf course characteristics help to improve the challenge of the game.
At Disney’s Oak Trail FootGolf Course, anyone can play as it requires minimal prior experience other than the ability to kick a soccer ball. It is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise, enjoy time together with colleagues or loved ones, and have some fun and friendly competition at the same time! As guests walk the 18 holes they are accompanied by a selection of Central Florida’s finest wildlife. Turkeys, armadillos, deer, ospreys and hawks are plentiful as the golf course is part of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, which works hard to provide a healthy balance between economic advancement while maintaining and restoring wildlife habitats where they can live and flourish.
