Ready, set, let's kick-it! In association with the American Foot Golf League (AFGL), Bergen Golf Course has opened the first FootGolf Course in town. FootGolf is one of the fastest growing international sports. It is a precision sport that is a combination of soccer and golf, however the rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. The (soccer) ball is kicked rather than struck with a club and the holes are 21 inch diameter cups.

At Bergen Golf Course, our 9-Hole Course is set up to accommodate 18 holes of footgolf. It takes approximately two hours to play.

How to Play FootGolf

Played with a regulation #5 soccer ball (the best ball for footgolf), the basic footgolf rules are like those of golf: the first shot at each hole has to be taken from the tee, and players must play past the usual array of bunkers, trees and hills. FootGolfers are expected to abide by the rules of the hosting course, including dress code and appropriate shoes.

Adapting an existing golf course for footgolf isn't as difficult as it might seem. FootGolf fairways run parallel to existing golf layouts (18 holes of FootGolf can be played in about the same time as nine holes of traditional golf) and the big 21-inch footgolf holes are typically placed in the rough or near undesirable hazards like sand traps, so it's rare for players of the two games to come into contact - or conflict - with each other.
