Footgolf at McDaniel College Golf Course
Play the NEWEST and COOLEST sport around!
• FOOTGOLF combines two of the world’s most popular sports, golf and soccer, played on a golf course.
• Just like golf but kicking a soccer ball, the object is to kick the ball into a 21-inch diameter cup in the fewest number of kicks. Players will tee off or in this case KICK OFF from a set of markers and play holes ranging from 50 to 200 yards. Like golf, there will be Par 3’s, Par 4’s and Par 5’s with scores kept on a scorecard.
• A #5 soccer ball is typically used and 18 holes can be played by a foursome in about 2 hours. TEE TIMES ARE REQUIRED. Call 410-848-7667 to book your time.
• FOOTGOLF greens are identified by bright colored flags/poles and are located in the fairway or rough areas of a regular golf hole. Golf greens are never used for FOOTGOLF.
• ANYONE CAN PLAY! No special equipment needed. Tennis shoes or indoor soccer shoes only. Cleats are not allowed. Bring your own ball or rental balls are available on a first-come basis.

Basic Rules of Footgolf
1. Play ball from between the tee markers and no more than 2 yards to the rear when kicking off.
2. Never play your ball from a traditional golf green. You may remove it to your nearest point of relief no closer to the hole without penalty.
3..Ball in group farthest from the hole plays first. Play your ball as it lies. Ball may be marked and lifted only if it interferes with another players kick.
4. Never run to your ball after a kick. When kicking or putting the ball, you may use the side of your foot or the toe but never should the bottom of your foot be used to "push" the ball forward.
5. Flag-stick may be removed or left in at player's discretion..
6. Ball may be declared "unplayable" anywhere on the course. Behind a bush, in the trees, etc. Player under penalty of ONE stroke can take two steps, no closer to the hole, place his ball and proceed on with his kick.
7. Just like golf, a player has holed out when his ball is in the cup. Strokes taken on that hole are to be recorded on the scorecard. Lowest score tees off first on the next hole.
8. PLEASE be respectful of other golfers and footgolfers on the course. Allow faster groups to play through. No yelling or running. Riding carts, if used, are to be kept 10 yards from FootGolf greens and tees.
9. Most of all....HAVE FUN!
