As World Cup fever captivated the nation this summer, soccer fans and patriotic Americans joined in the celebration to cheer on the U.S team. But the World Cup wasn’t the only buzz this summer, as FootGolf has become one of the fastest growing recreational sports in North America. This game combines the popular sports of soccer and golf, and is played on real golf courses throughout the world. While the rules correspond mostly with those of golf, it is played by kicking a soccer ball into an oversized hole.
With over 180 FootGolf courses throughout the U.S., including four in New Jersey, the popularity of the sport continues to grow. Starting out as the only FootGolf course in the Northeast, Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg has been joined by The Links at Brigantine Beach in Brigantine. Opening later this month are locations at High Bridge Golf Club and Monmouth County Park.
It takes just two short hours to play 18 holes of FootGolf; so, put down your clubs for a day and join the FootGolf craze at these New Jersey locations.
