FootGolf is a hybrid sport with rules similar to golf as players attempt to kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible. The sport is growing in popularity across the United States.
Midtown Golf Course, located behind Jetton soccer field, offers a free nine-hole course where traditional golfers, footgolfers, and disc golfers can play at the same time with each hole having a disc golf basket and holes for golf and FootGolf.
