Get­ting a real kick out of golf


Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

FORGET kick­ing a soc­cer ball into the back of a net, the new­est craze sweep­ing Fre­man­tle sees play­ers kick­ing the ball in for a hole-in-one.

Foot golf is the new­est hy­brid game tak­ing the world by storm, and the Fre­man­tle Pub­lic Golf Course is offering lo­cals the chance to give it a go, com­plete with the added fun of play­ing it at night.

Fre­man­tle Pub­lic Golf Course’s Nola Dar­byshire said foot golf in­ter­fered with reg­u­lar golf, and golf played at night was just too frus­trat­ing for many peo­ple, so they thought they would com­bine the two for the fun and wacky night foot golf.

“It’s easy to play with a group of four play­ers kick­ing the soc­cer ball into the 18 big lit-up holes around the course,” she said.

“The balls and the holes are glow­ing, making nav­i­gat­ing in the dark child’s play and there are light shows and mu­sic all over the course.

“It re­quires no golf­ing skills, min­i­mal soc­cer skills, no equip­ment is needed, it is very so­cial, loads of fun and suit­able for all ages.”

En­try is $20 a player with the next game on De­cem­ber 11.
