An exciting development has taken place at Swanston Farm, with the introduction of FootGolf.
FootGolf is simply Football and Golf combined; a precision sport where players kick a football into a specially-sized golf green hole in as few shots as possible.
The game is played the same way as golf, except players use a football instead of a golf ball and the ball is kicked, instead of being struck with a golf club. Players kick their ball towards a 21 inch ‘cup’ in place of the usual golf hole. Pars are usually 5 or less and FootGolf is quicker to play, more accessible to players and does not require expensive equipment. The game is fully recognised by Sport England and the first FootGolf World Cup was held in 2012.
Swanston Farm is home to Edinburgh’s only FootGolf course and has been welcoming to its course players of all ages, stag parties, hen parties, sports clubs, children’s groups and birthday parties. It is also perfect for something a little bit different for corporate entertainment.
Come along to Swanston Farm and join in this fantastic sport; it’s relaxed, requires no previous experience whatsoever and will have you exercising and laughing the whole way round.
