Lace-up, grab friends or family, and head to Jack Hill (Gordonia-Alatamaha) State Park for the American FootGolf League National Championship.
In partnership with Children’s Miracle Network, this three-day event hosted by the American FootGolf League (AFGL) is open to the public to observe and will take place at the park’s Brazell’s Creek Golf Course November 5-8.
Nearby parks offer a plethora of accommodation options ranging from cabins, cottages, and traditional campsites for those interested in attending the championship.
FootGolf, as the name suggests, is a combination of golf and soccer in which players kick a soccer ball into 21-inch cups. This exhilarating new sport is exclusively available at very few locations around Georgia with Jack Hill State Park, located in Reidsville, Ga., being one of them.
Those looking to try their hand – or foot -- at the sport can enter the AFGL Georgia Invitational which will take place the following week on November 14. Open to amateurs interested in the sport, this tournament offers FootGolf enthusiasts the opportunity to kick it casually on the park’s Peach Course or Sunshine Course.
Both courses, designed by FootGolf Designer Robert S. Greer, guarantee a challenge suitable for players of all ages and skill levels.
"I set them up to be easy enough for everyone in the family to play, but challenging enough so that experienced players will also have a great time," said Greer. "Even if you've never played golf or soccer before, come check them out. All abilities are welcome."
Accommodation options for the November 14 event are available at Jack Hill State Park. To learn more, visit GaStateParks.org/GordoniaAlatamaha and https://gastateparks.org/FootGolf.
