FootGolf is a precision sport, a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, being more closely related to golf. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf and players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible. FootGolf is played on golf courses only. it is necessary to have the golf component to maintain the quality of the course. Bunkers, hazards and golf course particularities help to improve the game.
Since the game is played on a golf course, the basic uniform of FootGolf is golf apparel, with indoor or turf soccer shoes. The ball must be a soccer ball #5. No rubber ball or any other than a regulation #5 soccer ball, similar to FIFA Approved.
