At Walt Disney World, you will find the FootGolf course at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course. You will play nine holes instead of the traditional 18.
FootGolf combines golf with soccer. Like golf, the aim is to get the ball in the hole in as few moves as possible. Like soccer, you will use your feet to move the ball. In fact, the ball used is a regulation #5 soccer ball. The hole is 21 inches in diameter.
You will encounter challenges along the way. You might come across hills or sand traps. Give yourself about an hour and a half for a game.
Traditional golf apparel is often worn during a game of FootGolf. At Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course, denim jeans and shorts are not allowed. It is essential that you wear sturdy shoes to avoid injury. Indoor soccer shoes or running shoes are recommended. In keeping with the golf tradition, many FootGolf players like to wear argyle socks, although they are not required.
