We’ll bring you all the latest details on this project once it’s released!
What is Footgolf?
In addition to the new course enhancements, Disney is currently promoting a family-friendly game called Footgolf. What is Footgolf, you ask? Simply put, it’s a combination of soccer and golf. Players use their feet to kick a soccer ball across the green and into large cups. The goal, much like standard golf, is to get the ball into the hole in as few shots as possible. Both games are played alongside each other at the Oak Trail course. To learn more about Footgolf at Walt Disney World, click here.
