Footgolf

You will need

  • Footballs

  • Something to mark lines (for example, chalk, masking tape, or rope)

  • Tarpaulins or old sheets

  1. The person leading the activity should design a basic course. They should mark out some holes and teeing boxes. It’s a good idea to have at least one hole for every two players, so people don’t wait for too long between turns. (Don’t worry if you can’t dig holes – just use something (such as rope) to mark out a square or circle instead.)

   2. The person leading the activity should add some obstacles between the tee boxes and holes to act like sandy bunkers and water hazards. (You could use ropes, tarpaulins, or anything else you have lying around.)

   3. The first player at each hole should gently kick their football into the teeing box to start their turn.

   4. The first player at each hole should take aim, kick their football towards the hole, and count ‘one’.

   5. Once their football’s stopped moving, the first player at each hole should kick it towards the hole again and count ‘two’.

   6. The players should keep going until their football reaches the hole (or marked out section). They should keep track of how many times they had to kick the ball at each hole.

   7. Once everyone’s had a turn at each hole, everyone should compare their scores. The person who kicked the ball the fewest number of times is the winner.
