Wig­wam Golf Club Un­veils New Foot­golf Course And Pro­gram

Golf Vacations - - Chip Shots -

The Wig­wam Golf Club has un­veiled a new Foot­Golf pro­gram on the club’s Pa­triot Course. Ev­ery day after 2:30 PM, FootGolfers can en­joy 18-holes of Foot­Golf for just $15 per per­son, while kids 15 and un­der are charged their age. Foot­Golf balls (soc­cer balls) are avail­able to rent in The Wig­wam Golf Shop for $3. The Wig­wam’s Foot­Golf course is Amer­i­can Foot­Golf League cer­ti­fied and is the first of its kind at an Ari­zona re­sort prop­erty.

Foot­Golf is a fun and grow­ing sport that re­quires play­ers to kick a soc­cer ball into cups/ holes lo­cated yards away from golf greens by us­ing as few at­tempts as pos­si­ble. Com­bin­ing el­e­ments found on a soc­cer field with those found on a golf course, Foot­Golf is easy for any­one to pick-up and en­joy. The course is shorter, the cups are big­ger (21-inches) and the en­tire fam­ily can play to­gether. Plus, Foot­Golf can be played in about half the time as a round of golf.

“We’re ex­cited to of­fer this new amenity to the com­mu­nity and our re­sort guests,” said Leo Si­mon­etta, di­rec­tor of golf, The Wig­wam Golf Club. “Foot­Golf is a great way for fam­i­lies to en­joy time out­doors to­gether. It’s fun and easy to play and our Pa­triot Course is the per­fect venue for it. The course is very walk­a­ble and the Foot­Golf rout­ing fits seam­lessly within the tra­di­tional golf lay­out. In fact, we’ve al­ready had par­ents play tra­di­tional golf right along­side their kids playing Foot­golf.”

On The Wig­wam Golf Club web­site, in­ter­ested FootGolfers can book a tee time and find out more about this ex­cit­ing new sport. Like tra­di­tional golf, Foot­Golf par­tic­i­pants are asked to ad­here to a dress code as shirts with col­lars and sneak­ers or turf soc­cer shoes are re­quired. Soc­cer cleats and uni­forms are not al­lowed on the course.
