Reason 1… It’s fun!
What’s the point of doing something unless it’s fun!? We’ve all got busy lives balancing our work and family commitments so it is important to inject some fun into that routine. Footgolf is the ideal injection of fun as it is a sport where you can spend time in the great outdoors, spend time laughing and spend time challenging friends and family to a game that all ages and all abilities can play… what’s better than that?
Reason 2… It gives you the opportunity to socialise!
Playing Footgolf gets you out and about which in turn gives you the opportunity to build social networks and friendships. Footgolf by its very nature is a social activity as you can talk while you play. This social nature carries on after the game as Footgolf gives you the added bonus of being able to have a well-deserved drink after the game to discuss the outcomes.
Reason 3… It’s a game that has longevity!
Footgolf is not a physically demanding sport and it doesn’t take too much toll on your joints such as running does. Footgolf can be taken up at any stage of a person’s life as long as that person is able to kick a ball. However, for those who are unable to walk far, a golf buggy can be hired at many courses which makes the sport easily accessible. The sport is still in it’s infancy but it looks here to stay for the future.
Reason 4… It gives you “me-time”!

Learning and mastering this new sport will also give you a sense of pride and achievement.
