About Footgolf Frenzy – The Team
Footgolf Frenzy has been formed to proactively build and grow the game in the UK.
Footgolf Frenzy wants Footgolf to be a sport enjoyed by all – from families to groups of friends, from the young to old and for those wanting some fun to those looking to improve their fitness. That’s what makes Footgolf so great! Its versatility and ease allows everyone to play with optional competitive play.
The people behind Footgolf Frenzy have an abundance of experience in the Footgolf, golf and football industries. This team has been put together to ensure Footgolf Frenzy has a complete appreciation, knowledge-base and experience to grow the popularity of the sport. The team has one vision and purpose, to grow the sport in a positive, inspiring and proactive way for all.
Sarah founded Footgolf Frenzy in early 2015 with the vision to make the website the go-to resource for Footgolfers to book Footgolf tee times in the UK. The aim was to give Footgolfers all the information they would need about a Footgolf course and to make an informed booking decision.
Sarah has previous experience of working in the golf tee time market and also runs a successful website consultancy company working with an array of companies on their digital marketing strategy. Her main clients are those in the golf sector.
Sarah wants to raise the profile of the game and for Footgolf to be a sport for all the family to enjoy and play.
