We’re holding a footgolf event on the evening of Wednesday 5th June. The men’s and ladies’ winners will represent us at the National Festival in September at Warwick University.

Footgolf is played similarly to golf, with the exception that players use a football instead of a golf ball, and the ball is kicked rather than struck with a club, working toward a 21-inch "cup" in place of the usual golf hole. Imagine a small dustbin set in the ground and you won’t be far off.

The player who finishes the course with the fewest shots wins. The first shot has to be played from the tee box, and bunkers, trees, water and hills must be crossed or avoided in order to reach the hole. The game is played with a regulation football.  As footballs cannot be propelled as far as golf balls in one shot, footgolf is played on holes shorter than those used in golf.

The cost will include a pizza and a drink of your choice after the event.  We’ll take orders in advance.

Entries must be made before Thursday 18th April.
