Disc golf & Footgolf? Together on one course?
Riverside Park in Grand Forks is now home to a combined 18-hole disc and footgolf course! A combined disc and footgolf course is a unique and fun way to enjoy the great outdoors. This combined course allows players to play disc golf, a game where players throw a flying disc into a series of targets, and footgolf, a game where players kick a soccer ball into a series of holes. The course is designed to accommodate both games and uses the same tee stands and side-by-side baskets for each sport. This course is a beginner-level recreation course for players of all skill levels.
The course begins on the west edge of Riverside Park. Parking is available near the playground and picnic shelters. Bring your soccer ball (kickballs work too but are bouncier) or discs and check out the rolling hills of Riverside Park today!
What exactly is footgolf?
Footgolf is a sport that combines elements of soccer and golf. It is played on a disc golf course, but players kick a soccer ball toward a larger hole instead of throwing a disc. The object of the game is to get the ball into the hole in as few kicks as possible. Footgolf is a fun activity for people of all ages and skill levels. It can be played individually or in groups. It is also a great way to get exercise in an outdoor setting.
