    Apparently they play it at fawkenham valley golf club (corinthians) and to be honest thats all the course is good for.
  • Me & my mates used to play this when we were kids back in the late 70's. The playing field we used even had a wooded area and sand bunkers (for the school long jump) we had to avoid. Didn't go as far as making a dirty great big hole, we used an old dustbin lying on it's side.

    Funny how it's now caught on as a sport........................
  • I've never heard of footgolf. Headgolf would be fun too!
  • Looks a good laugh. Would be good for the daytime on a stag - mine's next year but we might be too far away from Croydon, we're going to central London.

    While I think about it, anyone been to one of these?:

    urbangolf.co.uk/

    If so, any good?

    If anyone else has daytime ideas for a stag, let me know! Cheap as would rather not price people out of it, and would rather spend money on the beers than £100 at paintball, karting etc!
  • Sorry some of that is a bit off topic!
  • Urban golf is a laugh, but is absolutely nothing like real golf. Putting is a joke, the distances are all way, way off and it takes a lot longer than you would think, considering you're not actually walking between shots.

    Good fun with a bunch of mates though.

    Agree with that Leroy. Brilliantly a mate of mine actually managed to lose a ball at urban golf as well, which is nigh on impossible.
  • I've done frisbee golf and archery golf... They were both good fun

    Sounds good - we're not golfers, just need something entertaining during the day on the Saturday while we're hungover to kill a few hours and recover before getting back on the beers!

    Lmfao. That would be a legend that would never die if it happened to anyone in my regular fourball.

  • Urban golf....

    I enjoyed it but thats because u can swing away merrily over lunch time. Would be happy hitting it into a net actually and i think that applies to most. As leroy says, dont expect the simulators to accurately reflect ur shots

    but good with a few beers sure and it's very reasonably priced
  • Remember how much it was? Doesn't say on website!

  • Hi Neil

    I paid a tenner for 2 hours including a sarnie

    cheaper if u "tee off" before 2pm I believe

    ill have a check for u now mate
  • Ok found the prices but they are hidden

    if u go on Sundays to either soho or Kensington its half price @ 20 sobs an hour

    group of 3-5 and ur laughing at that price.

    I only been to the city branch but its all gonma be the same I imagine
  • http://www.footgolfengland.co.uk - a group of us going in a few weeks. Has anyone played it and have any tips?

    Cheers for that matt, definitely one to consider for the stag, sounds a laugh!

    DOn't suppose you or anyone else knows roughly how long a round would take? 6 people per simulator doing Scramble, I think.
  • My friend has recently become the "Footgolf Regional Development manager" for the South East whatever that is! They will soon be 3 courses in Kent - Fokestone Sports Centre, Corinthians in Fawkham and Orpington Golf Centre (which I am attending a "top secret" test run for tonight.

    It's a good laugh and takes around 2 hours to complete a round (18) You can also sign up go be a member and take place in competitions etc at courses around the south east.

    Well over 3 hours - and that's without pissing about in between shots
  • Anyone been to the Orpington one?

    I'd love to have a go at this.

    We're there for 3! Might stick to the Par 3 9 hole course!

    Gotta say, that looks a right laugh. Wouldn't mind playing that myself if I were 15 years younger and didn't have a f***ed back...............

    Did this one with the kids on Monday, got away with the weather except for the last 4-holes which were rather rushed. Managed a birdie on the 8th and think i got par on 1 or 2 others but otherwise got an appalling score, just pleased mne was marginally less appalling than the kids scores
  • Been twice so far, one in Orpington and one in Addington. Found the course in Addington to be far better. Longer distances as well as generally more challenging course.
  • I am sure there has been another thread about merging two sports together. Wrestling golf would be fun, I suspect.

    I agree about Addington. They even have someone driving a golf buggy around the course selling beers!!
