Footgolf Makes its Mark at Walt Disney World

March 9, 2018

Orlando, United States: Arnold Palmer Golf Management is becoming a member of the American FootGolf League (AFGL), and it is offering guests the opportunity to play FootGolf at Disneys Oak Trail golf course in 2018.

Played over Disney’s nine-hole golf course, FootGolf combines the excitement of golf with the fast-paced nature of soccer for a unique experience.

The precision sport requires players to kick a soccer ball into a cup, in a similar fashion to regular golf, by using as few attempts as possible.

Disney Golf’s new FootGolf course was constructed alongside its traditional golf course, and it is accredited by the American FootGolf League. The new 18-hole course offers a fun experience for FootGolf amateurs and experts alike.

Since 2011, FootGolf has grown immensely in popularity and is being played at approximately 500 courses in just about every state in America, as well as approximately 30 FootGolf tournaments conducted by AFGL throughout the United States each year.

“When the AFGL introduced FootGolf in North America, we were dreamers, but not even in our wildest dreams did we imagine a course located at Walt Disney World Golf,” said Roberto Balestrini, AFGL founder. “The beauty of FootGolf is that it can be as fun or competitive as you want, as well as being enjoyed by individuals of all ages.”

FootGolf makes for a perfect family friendly afternoon activity, corporate team builder or birthday party.

Played at Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, guests are sure to experience the magic of the Walt Disney World Golf experience. An 18-hole experience can take as little as two hours to complete.

“We are thrilled to offer FootGolf to our guests and for Arnold Palmer Golf to be a member of the AFGL association,” said Bruce Gerlander, Arnold Palmer Golf Management General Manager.

“Disney’s Oak Trail golf course is truly a great FootGolf location. You have the magic of playing at ‘The Happiest Place on TURF!’ coupled with the fun and exciting atmosphere of FootGolf. It’s a winning combination.”
