Quick Rules of FootGolf

1. Footgolf

The main goal of footgolf is to get a soccer ball from the flat area named teeing ground into a 
hole placed in at least fifty yards area with the lowest possible number of kicks. The footgolf 
course consists of 9-18 rounds, while the training courses consist of 6-9 parts. Each section is 
paired with a number (par) which indicates the possible number of kicks an excellent footgolf 
player would need for getting the ball into the hole.
The footgolf game means getting the ball by using one’s feet (kicking), from the teeing 
ground by a kick or several consecutive kicks into the hole. The ball is regarded to be in the 
“hole”, when it is in a rest in the circumference of the hole, and it is lying with its full scope 
under the level of the hole’s edge.

2. Forms of the Game
2.1. Stroke play
2.1.1. General description
Stroke play gameplay means that the aggregated number of kicks matter.
2.1.2. The winner
The procedure of stroke play is that every player write down their number of kicks in each 
round, and the winner is who has the lowest aggregated number of kicks.
Note: If there is a dead heat, the Organizing Committee may increase the prescribed round 
with such a number of sections which is necessary for winning the game.
2.1.3. Unfinished section
If a player does not complete a section, namely does not kick the ball into the hole then they 
shall be excluded from the competition.
2.2. Match play
 2.2.1. General description
Match play gameplay means that only the number of the won rounds matter, not the 
aggregated number of kicks. The biggest advantage of this gameplay is that the messed up 
section means only one hole loss.
2.2.2. Winner of the match
The player who won the highest number of holes will be the winner of the Match play 
competition.
Note: If there is a dead heat, the Organizing Committee may increase the prescribed round 
with such a number of sections which is necessary for winning the game.

3. The court
3.1. The “court” means the whole area within any borders determined by the Committee.
The Committee has to determine exactly the following:
● the court and the parts beyond the borders,
● edges of the water obstacles and side water obstacles,
● areas under renovation
The Organizing Committee only has an opportunity to designate new holes if the installation 
of the new holes finishes before the competition’s day so they can guarantee the equal 
conditions for all of the players.
3.2. Training court
If beyond the area of the competition court there is no training court available, the 
Committee has to indicate an area where the players have the opportunity to train on any day 
of the competition.
3.3. Parts of the court
3.3.1. Teeing ground
The “teeing ground” is the starting place of the section to be played. It is a rectangular area, 
the depth of which is two steps long and both its sides are marked by the outer edges of the 
two tee-markers. The ball has to be placed within this area; however, the player may stay out 
of this area.
Tee-markers count as immovable artificial objects and it is prohibited to move them.
PENALTY FOR MOVING THE TEE-MARKERS: 2 penalty kicks.
 3.3.2. Fairway
The best path leading from the teeing ground to the green and the hole.
 3.3.3. Rough
The less well-maintained parts of the sections which make the game more complicated, and 
functions as an obstacle.
 3.3.4. The green
The green is the part of the section which is covered by carpet-like grass and where the ball 
is only allowed to be rolled, this is called putt.
 3.3.5. The hole
The diameter of the hole has to be exactly 53 cm and 40 cm deep. The hole should be placed 
at least fifty meters from the teeing ground.
 3.3.6. Meaning of poles or painted lines:
● White – area outside of the border
● Red – side water hazard
● Yellow – water hazard
● Blue – area under renovation, it is forbidden to enter and search a ball

4. The Ball
4.1. General description
The ball used by the player has to be a size 5 football with a circumference of 68-70 cm, and 
weight of 410-450 g. It is the responsibility of the player to play with the appropriate ball. 
Every player shall put an ID sign onto its ball to help the identification.
The basic principle is to get that ball into the hole, which we brought into the game at 
the teeing ground; otherwise the player can be disqualified. A ball can be exchanged only 
between two rounds, except for the cases when a ball got lost or is no longer appropriate for 
the game.
4.2. Ball inappropriate for the game
The ball is inappropriate for the game if it is obviously torn, open, damaged in other way or 
it has a strange form. It shall not be regarded as inappropriate for the game only if some dirt, 
mud or any other material, its surface is scratched or its painting is damaged or has changed 
its colour.
If the player has a reason for believing that during the game his ball has become 
inappropriate for the game, he may raise the ball without any penalty, in order to decide 
whether it is really inappropriate for the game or not. Before raising the ball, the player shall 
be obliged to report his intention in case of a competition to its Marshall, and has to mark 
the place of the ball. Should the player not report their intention to the Marshall or raise 
the ball without marking, the player receives a penalty kick. If the ball has indeed become 
inappropriate for the game the player can replace it with another ball.
Note: If the other players would like to discuss the state of the ball, they have to do it before 
the player plays another ball.
4.3. Lost Ball
A ball shall be regarded as “lost” if:
● it was not found, or was not identified as the own ball of the player, five minutes 
after the player has started to search for it
● the player has brought another ball into the game
● the player has made a kick with a replacement ball
If the ball is regarded to be lost the player can decide to play with a replacement ball. It only 
can happen if the other players and the Marshall agreed with it and the replacement ball is 
appropriate for the game.
4.4. Wrong Ball
A “wrong ball” is any ball not belonging to the player, such as:
● ball in the game
● ball of another player
● an abandoned ball
● the original ball of the player, when it is already out of competition (in case of a 
replacement ball)
PENALTY FOR PLAYING WITH A WRONG BALL: 2 penalty kicks.
4.5. Ball hitting external factors
If the ball hits any objects which are not a part of the court such as an animal, another ball or 
tree the player will not receive any penalty, but has to kick the ball from where it fell.However, if the ball hits the player 
or their equipment the player receives one penalty kick and has to play the ball at it is lying.In case a ball in rest is moved 
by an outside agency (spectator, animal, partner, other ball, etc.), without any penalty the player has to place it back. 
If the ball has been raised and taken away, the player is allowed to place another ball to the same place without any 
penalty, from where it had been taken away.
4.6. Balls disturbing each other
In case two balls are so close to each other that they are disturbing each other, one of them 
can be marked and raised, and after the kick of the other one, it can be placed back. The 
original position of the ball has to be recreated to the biggest possible extent.
When playing with a wrong ball although the kick will not count, the player is going to receive 
two penalty kicks. The original situation of the balls has to be recreated.
4.7. Ball kicked beyond the border
The balls which got kicked outside of the border have to be taken back to their original places 
while the player receives one penalty kick. A ball is out of border if it is lying entirely out of 
the area fenced by the white poles. However, the players can stay out of the borders in order 
to kick a ball within the court.

5. Preparations
5.1. Before the game
● The balls have to be marked to ensure its identification.
● Read carefully the Local Rules.
● Warm up thoroughly in order to avoid injuries.
5.2. Starting order
At the first teeing place the order of the game is decided by a starting list. At the further 
teeing places the player is going to have the right to start who managed to reach the lowest 
number of kicks in the previous section. If two or more of the players reached the same 
number of kicks then the player whose ball was in the hole first gets to kick first.
5.3. Delays
In case of every delay caused by any of the players they can be excluded from the 
competition by the decision of the Head of the Marshalls.

6. Gameplay
6.1. Kicks
The starting kick can be made only from the ground, and the concerned player may make a 
kick-off with both his left or right foot. Kicks can only be made with these parts of the leg:
● full instep / pastern
● internal side
● external side
● leg tip● rolling with leg sole
● kicking with heel
Note: Every contact with the ball counts as one kick.
6.2. Counting of results
After each kick the Marshall draws a stick onto the score card, and after finishing the section 
aggregates the results. After the players finish every section on the court the Marshall has to 
aggregate all of the results of each player, authenticate it with their signature and give the 
score card to the Organizing Committee. Naturally the players have the opportunity to see 
their score.
In case of cheating the player can be excluded by the Organizing Committee.
6.3. Unplayable ball
In case the ball is in an especially bad situation, it is better to declare it as unplayable. The 
player may freely decide about this, however, they will receive penalty for moving the ball. 
There are 3 possibilities to do with the ball:
1. Placing it within a distance of 2 steps from the ball
2. Bringing it out from the forest or from behind an obstacle
3. Placing it to the place of the previous kick
PENALTY FOR MOVING THE BALL: 1 penalty kick.
6.4. Interfering the environment
The player is allowed to move every loose obstacles or movable barricades as long as their 
ball stays on its place.
PENALTY FOR MOVING THE BALL (in this case):
● Match play – losing of a section
● Stroke play – two kicks.
● In serious cases the Committee may exclude the player from the game.
6.5. Agreement on an invalid game
The players cannot agree on excluding the validity of any rule, or not taking into 
consideration any of the issued penalties.
PENALTY:
● Match play – disqualification of both player parties.
● Stroke play – disqualification of the concerned players.

7. Training
There is always a walking track around the court on the day before the competition, where 
the players have the opportunity to get to know the court, try out the rounds and practice 
the kicks.
The players cannot practice on the competition court just before a round or a playoff on any 
day neither can they try out the green in case of causing harm to the surface.
PENALTY FOR TRAINING DURING THE COMPETITION: disqualification.

the less adept player can kick more to complete the section than the par.
Hole
The footgolf course consists of 9-18 rounds which are called holes by the English people as 
well as the actual hole. The hole found at the very end of the section has a diameter of 53 cm 
and depth of 40 cm.
Hole in one

technique, but they call it drow. The hook is the name of the ball which starts straight and 
then it turns to the left.

has been and where put it back to.
