FootGolf phenomenon continues

By the end of 2016 it is estimated that more than 300 UK golf clubs, 15% of all clubs, will also have a FootGolf facility on site.

Two golf clubs, Grimsby in Yorkshire and Burstow in Surrey have closed down their golf business to focus solely on FootGolf.

Clubs which have a FootGolf course have reported up to 300% increase in visitors bringing in a huge increase in spend on green fees and food and drink sales.

FootGolf’s appeal to under 16s has drawn in families who have tried golf after visiting the club for the first time, being the most effective driver for new memberships.

Gareth May, the UK Development Manager for UK FootGolf says the hybrid sport should be seen as an opportunity, not a threat. The courses need minimal upkeep. It is transforming golf facilities across the country, a remarkable phenomenon. It is an extremely popular new sport because it is inclusive and not expensive.
