FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The game is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups.

The American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States. Founded in 2011, the American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the U.S. exclusive member of the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG).

Lindero Country Club was proud to become a part of the FootGolf family. Introduced in August of 2014 the club started offering a 9-hole FootGolf course for individuals of all ages, families and groups to enjoy on a regular basis.

FootGolf is a very ‘addictive’ sport that combines the best of the popular sport of soccer with an elite sport like golf. Similar to golf, the players’ intent is to kick a ball into the hole with the least amount of strokes possible and uses the basic model of golf, with a tee box, a green, bunkers, hazards and the hole.
