Foot Golf Rules
- Cleated shoes are not allowed. Be ready to kick when it is your turn and maintain a proper pace of play.
- Make sure you don’t kick your ball until the group of golfers or foot golfers in front of you have cleared the area you are trying to kick to.
- When playing from the foot golf tee, kick your ball from a position up to 6 feet behind the tee markers.
- The ball must be played in a single movement. You are not allowed to push the ball with the top or bottom of your foot. Your foot should be set separate from the ball, clearly behind before each kick.
FOOT GOLF OBJECTIVE AND SCORING
- The objective of foot golf- like traditional golf- is to advance the ball from the tee into the cup in the fewest number of kicks.
- Each foot golfer is responsible for counting his/her kicks. After all players in a group have completed a hole, each foot golfers score(or number of kicks plus any penalties) is recorded on the scorecard.
WHEN TO KICK AND ORDER OF PLAY
- The player who’s ball is farthest from the hole is the first to kick.
- The order of play from the tee is established based on the score of the previous hole. The player with the best score will kick off first on the next hole followed by the second, etc.
- Play the ball from where it lies. In general, you are not allowed to move the ball prior to kicking it. You may mark the spot and lift the ball when it may obstruct the other player’s kick or ball in any way.
