Together, with our partner, the City of Buffalo, we are excited to bring FootGolf to Delaware Park for the second season. Named an official sport in 2011, FootGolf pulls elements of both soccer and golf to create an incredibly entertaining game for people of all ages.
The Delaware Park golf course has been revamped to include an 18-hole FootGolf course, which has been certified by the American FootGolf League. Weather permitting, FootGolf will begin on May 2. Golf, soccer and Olmsted fans of all ages are invited to come out and enjoy this fast-paced hybrid game of soccer and golf.
Playing is easy and prior experience in soccer or golf is not necessary!
-There’s no clubs, no cleats and no goalie – just your friends (like golf), your feet and your ball (like soccer)
-Players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball, starting from the tee box, along the course and try to sink it in the (considerably larger) cup in as few kicks as possible
-The ball must always be kicked by the player’s foot – no rolling or dribbling allowed.
-The lowest total wins, just like golf.
-Compared to golf, FootGolf is quicker to play, more accessible to players, and does not require expensive equipment.
