The American FootGolf League (AFGL) US National Championship
The American FootGolf League (AFGL) US National Championship will hold a Florida Qualifier at the City of Largo’s Golf Course, on Saturday, August 27 at 3pm. This Regional Qualifier is where team will qualify for the Florida Regional Championship. This is one of 16 regional championships planned. The AFGL US National Championship, will be held in November at Desert Willow Golf Resort in Palm Desert, California.
“The AFGL has worked for the last four years to create a network of nearly 500 courses in the United States that have FootGolf courses,” said US National Championship Director Julia Barajas, “and the National Championship is the next logical step in the growth of the sport and its integration into the competitive sports landscape.”
FootGolf, which is played on a traditional golf course, involves the kicking of a soccer ball down the fairway, with the intention, similar to golf, of reaching the hole in as few “strokes” (kicks) as possible. In FootGolf, the hole is increased to 21” in diameter in order to accommodate a regulation soccer ball.
FootGolf is suitable for players of various ages and genders, and tournaments feature four different player classifications for the US National Championship: Juniors age 12-17, Men age 18-45, Seniors age over 45 and Women age 18 and over.
