Discover the new sport available at Montebelo Golfe - Kick off FootGolf!
FootGolf is a game played with a soccer ball, on golf courses, with the goal of kicking the ball with your foot at different distances to the hole, with the fewest possible kicks. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to match power and precision in a strategic way!
The sport was created in the Netherlands in 2009 and is played in 39 countries, all of which are members of the International FootGolf Federation. It has become game of its own, as it is played on a golf course and not on any other type of course.
