Footgolf is a new exciting sport that’s taking over the golf course at The Address Montgomerie Dubai. It is an attention-grabbing test of skill for any golf or football fan.
Sports enthusiasts can challenge themselves as they navigate the floodlit Par 3 course alone or in a team. The two games have been combined to create a new age of leisure activity that is fascinating and captures the imagination of all sport-lovers. This is a fun activity for friends and colleagues to get together. Visitors can manoeuvre their way round the challenging ups and downs of the golf course, without the use of golf clubs, to score against their opponent. With the strategy and precision of golf they can skilfully practice stamina of football with footgolf.
A football around the par 3 course is totally different experience, guests can participate in Dubai’s first footgolf sessions along with other golf lessons at The Montgomerie Dubai Golf Club. This is undoubtedly one of the most easy to get to ways for zealous sports fans requiring the arm-eye co-ordination to drive instead of digging big and deep divets with a golf club.
Although its not unique to this city, footgolf has been in play in Abu Dhabi for a while and is quickly growing in the UK and US, which has many hundred courses already dedicated to the sport, with both countries now conducting leagues. The PGA is also interested, and its American president Ted Bishop has previously mentioned that the game is a way to grow the reach of golf itself.
The rules are simple and comparable to a normal round of golf. Formally, players are expected to wear golf attire, and football shirts are not allowed although Montgomerie is lenient about this rule and approach, encouraging football shirts and casual sportswear. The club is expecting the merging sport to take off and have suggested at the launch of a supporters’ club league for Dubai’s devoted football fans. Participants will be handed footballs and scorecard and allowed to venture on the club’s picturesque par 3 nine-hole course.
The Address Montgomerie Dubai is managed by Troon Golf (of Westin Turnberry, Scotland and Troon North, Arizona fame and operating or developing over 185 golf properties in 20 countries), and is widely famous as golf’s only luxury brand. Visitors can make the most of this unique combination of championship golf and luxury hospitality.
