Aloha FootGolf in Maui

FootGolf, the widely popular golf-soccer combination.

FootGolf has found a footing in Maui. Yes, every pun intended. On Friday, June 12 Kaanapali Golf Courses will become the first facility in Maui to offer FootGolf to the general public. A ceremony will be held at 3 p.m. on the first tee of the Kaanapali Kai Course to celebrate the introduction of the widely popular golf-soccer hybrid.

โ€œWe are excited to present this new, fun way for families and non-golfers to experience recreational golf,โ€ says Ed Kageyama, PGA General Manager at Kaanapali Golf Courses. โ€œSummer is the perfect time to kick off (no pun intended) FootGolf.โ€

Nine and 18 holes of FootGolf will be available at Kaanpali after 3 p.m. seven days a week. Starting at $15 to walk and an additional $15 to ride a shared cart, players can bring their own soccer balls or rent one for $5. Kaanapali joins several other BCG-managed courses across America to launch the exciting sport in 2015.

In FootGolf, each hole is assigned a "par" and players tee off using a soccer ball, strategically kicking it until they make it in the 21-inch cup. Holes are cut into the rough to protect conditions of fairways and greens, and to avoid affecting everyday golfers. The American FootGolf League provides a rulebook for players to follow.

If you can overcome these sand-traps, you can make it through Monday. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This beautiful challenge is at our very ownโ€ฆ
