Rules of FootGolf

FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The game is played with a standard size 5 football at what is generally a golf course facility or grounds converted to a golf course style. Holes can vary in length from 60 yards to 400 with 21-inch diameter cups.

The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. FootGolf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport, it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG). The IFGA is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governing body for the sport of FootGolf in Ireland.

For the most part, FootGolf is played without the supervision of a referee. The game depends on the integrity of each player to show consideration for other players and to abide by the rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy at all times and sportsmanship, regardless of how competitive they may be.
