Foot Golf

Filed in Land, Outdoor by on 17th December 2015 • views: 28915

Back in 2016, Craggan Outdoors – BEST OUTDOOR ADVENTURE EXPERIENCE in the Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards 2019 – was proud to introduce this fast-growing and addictive sport to the Highlands. Whilst the origins of the game aren’t clear, it is known that footgolf was first formalised in The Netherlands in 2008, & was introduced to the UK a few years later. The game is growing rapidly, with there now being over 160 courses across the UK, up from just 10 courses back in 2014. The course at Craggan was just the fifth in Scotland, & the first to bring the game north of the Central Belt, & is the home of the Footgolf Association of Scotland ‘Highland Championship’ which is contested by Scotland’s best players each August.

Following the same concept as golf, but with bigger balls, players kick the football from tee to football-sized hole in as few shots as possible. Our 9-hole course has a mix of par 3, 4 & 5 holes ranging from 84 yards to 185 yards in length, & making good use of the existing dips, curves & slopes of the golf course. Par for 9 holes over the 1,122 yards is 36, & the current course record for a full 18 hole round is five under par 67.

Footgolf is in normal times a ‘pay & play’ activity, so no bookings required / taken – except for groups who are always advised to pre-book, particularly if wanting ball hire – so just come along, pay your money, & off you go.

BUT…..& please note this Covid related update, whilst precautions remain in place it is necessary to pre-book, so please use the contact form to send an enquiry, email or call us to enquire & book.

Prices are £12 for 9 holes for adults, & £9 for under 16s. An 18 hole ticket is £15 for adults & £11.50 for under 16s, or play as much as you like in any day with a day ticket at £18 & £13.50 respectively. Free ball hire is included with all tickets, or feel free to bring your own if you prefer.

Footgolf is suited to everybody & anybody that can kick a ball, & looking to enjoy some easy competitive outdoor fun. Recommended footwear is football trainers. Please note that football boots with studs or blades are not permitted. Why not come along & give a new sport a try? We reckon you’ll be hooked. Don’t forget to ask us about catering for your group aswell.

If you are a footgolf convert & wish to play a lot, then why not get a season ticket? Adult tickets are £90 & £30 for under-16s. Joint season tickets to combine footgolf with disc golf &/or golf are also available. Please email for further information.

Vouchers also available.
