'Of all the hazards, fear is the worst.' - Sam Snead
Ever want to crash the party on the golf course? Add some excitement to 18 rounds on the green when you mix it up with Oxford Footgolf on your stag weekend. Who said you can't kick a hole in one? Now's your chance! Footgolf is the epic game where you can show off your superb striking skills. The goal? Put the football into the supersized golf holes with as little kicks as possible. It's harder than it sounds, we can promise you that.
If you want to have a bit of outdoor activity on your stag weekend but have a group of lads with varying abilities or fitness levels, footgolf is brilliant. It's less taxing than an afternoon of five a side and it's much less pretentious than a round of golf. Get your group out into the fresh air, beat back hangovers from a night out on George Street and bond your band of boys before your big day. Simple!
'The harder you practice, the luckier you get.' - Gary Player
You don't have to be Sergio Agüero or Gary Player to have a brilliant time playing Footgolf. It isn't all about the winning - though we're sure you want to win! It's all about having a brilliant time, the comedy moments where you're laughing until your sides hurt and making memories on the groom's final weekend of freedom. Bring those smartphones, there will be plenty of moments that'll be too funny not to post to social media.
Arrive at the course where you'll be met by the game masters. They'll take you through the basics of game, then it's time to show us what you've got. Just like traditional golf, there are hazards like water holes and sand pits. You'll need a foot like Owen Farrell to smash your football the distance toward the goal. The holes increase in difficulty as you proceed through the course, but by the end you'll be laughing so hard you won't care who wins. When you're done, head back towards George Street and celebrate with your mates at a pub with an ice cold round of pints. Priceless!
