(3TV/CBS 5) -

Nine of the state’s top FootGolf Courses have teamed up to present Arizona FootGolf Day on Sunday, Sept. 24. On Arizona FootGolf Day, participating courses will offer free FootGolf – giving individuals and families the opportunity to give the growing sport of FootGolf a try at no cost.

FootGolf is a fun and growing sport that requires players to kick a soccer ball into cups/holes by using as few attempts as possible. FootGolf combines elements found on a soccer field with those found on a golf course, except the course is shorter, the cups are bigger (21 inches) and FootGolf can be played in about half the time as a traditional round of golf. FootGolf is easy for anyone to pick up and enjoy – you just need to be able to kick a soccer ball. Plus, FootGolf is a great sport for the entire family to play together.

FootGolf courses participating in Arizona FootGolf Day, include:

  •  Arizona Biltmore Golf Club in Phoenix – Play free from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.. Drink specials will be available on the beverage cart. Golf cart and soccer ball not included, but will be available for an additional fee.
