I had never heard of footgolf. So I googled it. My initial thought was "that seems stupid" then I realized that I chuck plastic circles at weird looking chainy baskets...then spend hours on a forum discussing it...yeah we can't judge...

Thx for all the replies! I don't know sh!t about foot golf, but I think I'll design a 9-hole foot golf course to go along with the 24-hole design I've come up with for us. How hard can it be? Gonna throw in a windmill, a clown's mouth and a dinosaur for the kids. Errbody wins!!

I have played 4 disc golf courses with shared space for foot golf.
Edwardsville ,KS https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=9841
Army Depot -Memphis, TN https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=7791
Pine Valley Golf Course- Sherwood, AR https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=8349
Lakeview- Chanute, KS https://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=8833
I have seen no conflict between DG and foot golf. Maybe one of the reasons for this is no one plays foot golf. I have maybe seen five foot golfers in probably 10 rounds of disc golf.

If someone gave me a 10k grant and wanted me to incorporate a new sport called fart golf alongside my new DG course, I’d happily say yes.

I have no clue how big foot golf holes are, but if they're similar to ours, I wouldn't see much of a conflict. They could possibly even share tees so the two games don't interfere with each other.

One thing that we love that might present a problem for foot golfers ---> elevation.

Played a (now extinct) campsite course in Modoc, IN once that had a few foot golf holes sharing space. Since nobody but me was out there on either course, I can't give any input into how they work together. I thought the holes (just big bowls like a ball golf hole scaled up for a soccer ball) might be good tripping hazards for the unawares at dusk/night.

There is a foot golf course on the same property as Muddy Run, but the courses are totally separate spaces. The foot golf course looks to have EXTREME elevation. I saw a tee that Id have to quit on because there is no way Id ever be able to kick a ball up the hill.

Got to be some foot golf enthusiast around you. Much like a disc golf course, it seems silly to drop in a foot golf course that sucks. Getting some input and help from someone that knows about the game, would seem like a win/win. I would guess the city seeing value in both would help ensure the survival of the disc golf course as well.

Mission Bay Golf Course in San Diego is a 18 hole executive "ball" golf course. About 3 years ago they added foot golf and this year they added disc golf. So this course is shared by 3 styles of golfers. The disc golf hours are limited, however, this course does have lights so you can play disc golf at night.

I coach hs golf and we use Mission Bay as a practice course and I rarely see foot golfers but when I do, they are usually in a big groups like soccer teams having some fun.

Good luck
