Footgolf

Footgolf is one of the UK’s fastest growing sports – a winning combination of football and golf. You play it on a golf course using a size 5 football. Like golf, the object of the game is to get the ball into the hole in the fewest number of shots possible. Eaton Park’s newest sport uses the existing pitch and putt course but different holes.
