The Oak Knoll Golf Course is hosting a FREE afternoon of FootGolf on Friday, March 13, from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. FootGolf is a blend of soccer and golf played with a soccer ball on a golf course with shortened holes and 21-inch diameter cups. The rules generally correspond to the game of golf. Oak Knoll currently has four, 21-inch holes installed.
“Offering FootGolf will provide an additional recreational opportunity for our community,” said Rachel Dials, Recreation Superintendent for the Ashland Parks & Recreation Commission (APRC). “We hope to see more people out on the Oak Knoll Golf Course, recreating with family and friends.”
The sport of FootGolf, played throughout the world, is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG). The American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governs the sport of FootGolf in the United States. The AFGL organizes tournaments and leagues throughout the country and works with golf courses to bring FootGolf to communities. Learn more at www.afgl.us
During FREE FootGolf on Friday, March 13, the course will remain open to traditional golfers. FootGolfers are encouraged to bring a regulation #5 soccer ball and wear soft-soled shoes (NO cleats). Free snacks and beverages will be provided, with local wine and beer available for purchase.
