I recently had the opportunity to go try out the brand new FootGolf course on Disney’s Oak Trail golf course with my friend Jordan. This is easily my new favorite sport! A hybrid of golf and soccer, FootGolf is a sporting experience that is fun for the whole family.
Played on the classic 9-hole Oak Trail gold course, 18 holes of FootGolf can be enjoyed on its own, or alongside a game of traditional golf. Do Mom and Dad want to play traditional golf and the kids want to play FootGolf? No problem! These two types of golf can be played side by side for the ultimate in family excursions.
Using the classic golf rules, FootGolf is a super fun fresh take on the popular sport of golf. There was a minimal learning curve as we figured out how to best kick and aim the ball, which was a nice way to break into this incredible sport. I found it much easier to figure out than traditional golf, which makes it a great sport for even those who have never played! Since FootGolf is played on a traditional golf course, the bunkers and water hazards apply as well, giving this sport a delightful challenge.
The wildlife on the course adds to the beautiful outdoor appeal of the sport. We saw a group of turkeys enjoying the course as much as we were, and guests have been known to spot other birds, squirrels, and even deer to name just a few!
FootGolf can also be played as a group event, which I can see being a fun way to promote team bonding while fostering an exciting competitive edge with a lot of laughs.
Disney’s Oak Trail golf course also offers beautiful locker-room facilities for those wanting to freshen up after playing. Providing a quiet environment to grab a quick shower is amazing for those who want to get in their golf or FootGolf rounds before heading off to even more adventures!
All this golf and FootGolf making you hungry and thirsty? Pop into On the Green for a quick meal and beverage before or after your game! They even have free Wi-Fi for the guests at On the Green and in the pro shop.
For the traditional golfers, there is exciting news on the horizon: after experiencing such great guest reviews on the Mickey Bunker on the Magnolia golf course, Disney’s Lake Buena Vista golf course will be receiving its own Mickey Bunker later this year! Woohoo!
Bottom line: FootGolf is my new favorite sport; I can’t wait to go again! Will you try it soon?
