FootGolf comes to the Waikato

History/background

Given away by it's name, Footgolf is a relatively new sport in New Zealand combining these two great sports. Hukanui Golf Club introduced it to the Waikato in 2015.

Here is a quick introduction if you haven’t heard much about it, it’s pretty simple:

  • The game is played and scored the same way as golf except players use a standard football.

  • The ball is kicked rather than being struck with a club. Your leg & foot is a driver down to a putter, and everything in between.

  • The hole is a really a bucket to accommodate the football, measuring 21 inches wide.

  • Played on shorter holes as its harder to achieve the same distance as golf by kicking.

  • Unlike the golf course, the Footgolf course is an 18-hole course.
