Footgolf as a sport is still a baby, and babies are constantly learning from other people – this is how we grow. There are no shortage of opinions on the sport and the vast majority are good, well intentioned opinions designed to educate, inform and nourish. This is the place to get those opinions out to the world.
Below you will find blogs and opinion pieces from the whole footgolf spectrum, from casual players, to elite players, from course owners to national association chiefs.
Read, form an opinion, and tell us what you think!
Commonly referred to as ‘The Godfather of FootGolf’, Paul Killick has seen and done it all within the sport’s short lifetime, in his home country of the UK, his adopted home of France, and practically every other footgolf playing nation on earth. Here, Paul tells us about how he became involved with the sport, and his opinions on it now.
Did you know there was a different game called Footballgolf? Well there is, and who better to explain the differences between the two sports than a regular footgolfer who also just happens to be the double world champion at footballgolf.
Herman Van Eekeres
Herman is one of the most popular players on the tour, excelling at both the main events and the seniors as well. Not only is he an excellent FootGolfer and a role model to others on the course, but how many other people would adopt a stray dog found during a tournament in Morocco, and take him home to live with him and his family in the Netherlands!

The best male player in the world is still a matter of debate - what isn't up for debate however, is who is currently the greatest female footgolfer - it can only be the Italian phenomenon, Martina Quintarelli!
This was exactly my reaction when I was asked to participate in a Footgolf competition about 4 years ago. Now, four years later, I still have to explain very often what Footgolf is all about , where we play and if our ball really fits in the hole of the golf course.
