Foot Golf

Filed in Land, Outdoor by on December 17, 2015 • views: 13752


Back in 2016, Craggan Outdoors was proud to introduce this fast-growing and addictive sport to the Highlands. Whilst the origins of the game aren’t clear, it is known that footgolf was first formalised in The Netherlands in 2008, & was introduced to the UK a few years later. The game is growing rapidly, with there now being over 160 courses across the UK, up from just 10 courses back in 2014. The course at Craggan was just the fifth in Scotland, & the first to bring the game north of the Central Belt.

Following the same concept as golf, but with bigger balls, players kick the football from tee to football-sized hole in as few shots as possible. Our 9-hole course has a mix of par 3, 4 & 5 holes ranging from 84 yards to 185 yards in length, & making good use of the existing dips, curves & slopes of the golf course. Par for 9 holes over the 1,122 yards is 36, & the current course record for a full 18 hole round is five under par 67.

Footgolf is a ‘pay & play’ activity, so no bookings required / taken – except for groups who are advised to pre-book, particularly if wanting ball hire – so just come along, pay your money (cash only), & off you go. Prices are £10 for 9 holes for adults, & £7 for under 16s, with ball hire if required being £2. Feel free to bring your own ball of course. An 18 hole ticket is £15 for adults & £10 for under 16s, or play as much as you like in any day with a day ticket at £18 & £12 respectively. Free ball hire is included with 18 hole & day tickets.

Footgolf is suited to everybody & anybody that can kick a ball, & looking to enjoy some easy competitive outdoor fun. Recommended footwear is football trainers. Please note that football boots with studs or blades are not permitted. Why not come along & give a new sport a try? We reckon you’ll be hooked.
