|The Chevy Chase Country Club is a Certified FootGolf Course of the American FootGolf League (AFGL) that promotes the sport of FootGolf under the rules and guidelines of the Federation of International FootGolf (FIFG). |
FootGolf is a precision sport, a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf, being more closely related to golf. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf and players kick a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups in as few shots as possible.
FootGolf is played on golf courses only. It is necessary to have the golf component to maintain the quality of the course. Bunkers, hazards and golf course particularities help to improve the game.
The American FootGolf League as the governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the US has grown the game to over 500 courses in 50 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, since 2011 and U.S. Caribbean. The AFGL also co-founded the FootGolf Association of Canada and the Mexican FootGolf Federation - over 150 golf courses added FootGolf in 2015 alone! Golf facilities can be Accredited and Certified with the AFGL receiving guidance in course design and the standards for the distances for par.
