The Arizona Biltmore Golf Club recently opened a new FootGolf course on the club’s Adobe Course.
FootGolfers can enjoy 18-holes for $20 per person, while children 15 and under will be charged their age. The FootGolf course is open for play Sunday through Wednesday after 3 p.m. through the end of April (the course will be open daily beginning in May). FootGolf balls (soccer balls) are available to rent in the Arizona Biltmore Golf Shop for $5 or participants can bring their own.
Combining elements found on a soccer field with those found on a golf course, FootGolf is easy for anyone to pick-up and enjoy. FootGolf is a fun and growing sport that requires players to kick a soccer ball into cups/holes located yards away from golf greens by using as few attempts as possible. The course is shorter, the cups are bigger (21-inches) and the entire family can play together. Plus, FootGolf can be played in about half the time as a round of golf.
“We’re excited to bring FootGolf to the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club’s Adobe Course,” said Justin Creighton, head golf professional, Arizona Biltmore Golf Club. “We’re the first FootGolf course in downtown Phoenix, making The Biltmore an attractive option for young professionals and families who live or work in the area. Plus, FootGolf is a fun activity for resort guests to play during their stay.”
On the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club website, interested FootGolfers can book a tee time and find out more about this exciting new sport. Like traditional golf, FootGolf participants are asked to adhere to a dress code as shirts with collars and sneakers or turf soccer shoes are required. Soccer cleats and uniforms are not allowed on the course.
