Foot Golf grows in popularity

Posted: Updated:

It's a hot new sport called foot golf and its popularity is spreading in California.

In just 10 weeks, 2,000 foot golfers have gotten in their kicks at the first northern California golf course to offer up the sport.

The concept of the game is very similar to golf just with a bigger ball and your leg instead of a club.  Those who play say a similar skill set is needed as well.

“Just like golf- the putting, the short game is where you need to be making your best strokes.  It's all about touch,” said Karl Van Dessel, Haggin Oaks Foot Golf Coordinator.

Dessel says area soccer teams are also using foot golf to fine-tune their skills.
