Beach FootGolf 2015

New to the Wildwoods this summer is Beach FootGolf. Beach FootGolf is a combination of the two well known sports of soccer and golf. Like golf, a player needs to get the ball into a hole that is located down a long course but unlike golf, instead of a player needing to use a club to hit a ball a player kicks a soccer ball.

The event will take place on Sunday, July 12, 2015 and will be held on the beach at Schellenger Avenue. (The event will take place between Morey’s Piers’ Mariners Landing and Adventure Pier) Similar to the rules of golf, there will be nine holes with tee boxes, bunkers, hazards and greens.

Beach Footgolf is a national sport. The American FootGolf League is made up of many different teams nationwide.
