Foot Golf 2019 Asia Cup @ Horizon Golf Resort
Nov 18 – Nov 22 all-day

The Asia Cup will see the best FootGolf talent in the Asia Pacific region on display, with a chance for our Australian players to show their skills on home turf. There will be around 150 players from over 10 countries.

Players will be competing for individual honours and in a team event covering Mens, Ladies and Seniors divisions. Number 1 Ranked FootGolf player in the World Martias Perrone has also been announced as the Tournament Director.

This will be a spectator event and a great way to see FootGolf at it’s best. In line with the Asia Cup, we will also be hosting a series of clinics for children and adults during the week. Definitely a week to mark in the dairy as there will be plenty of opportunities to be involved or watch the event.

FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of football (soccer) and golf. The game is played on a golf course, using a regulation #5 football which is kicked into 52 cm diameter holes. The rules largely correspond with those of golf.
