“The premise is exactly the same as regular golf,” says Mark Wesolek, regional manager for Billy Casper Golf.
“You kick the ball off the tee as your tee shot, make an approach shot and ideally two-putt to make a par on a par-4 hole.
Footgolf is, essentially, a hybrid of soccer and golf.
“You play it down,” Wesolek says. “Regular golf rules apply.”
Two footgolf courses opened this spring in Northern Virginia: General’s Ridge, in Manassas, and Lake Ridge Golf Course, in Woodbridge.
“The excitement is huge. It’s going to be the sport of the year,” says Marcy Janet, general manager at General’s Ridge Golf Course.
