Kaanapali Golf offers FootGolf
KAANAPALI – Kaanapali Golf Courses, managed by Billy Casper Golf, now offers FootGolf to the general public.
Nine and 18 holes of FootGolf are available at Kaanapali after 3:30 p.m. seven days a week, starting at $15 to walk and an additional $15 to ride a shared golf cart. Players can bring their own soccer balls or rent one for $5 per round.
Kaanapali Golf Courses is the first facility on Maui to offer FootGolf, joining several other Billy Casper Golf-managed courses across America to launch the program in 2015.
“We are excited to present FootGolf, a new way for families and non-golfers to experience recreational golf,” said Ed Kageyama, PGA general manager at Kaanapali Golf Courses.
“Summer is the perfect time to kick off (no pun intended) FootGolf, as school break has just begun.”
In FootGolf, each hole is assigned a “par,” and players tee off using a soccer ball, strategically kicking it until they make it in the 21-inch cup. Holes are cut into the rough to protect conditions of fairways and greens, and to avoid affecting everyday golfers. The American FootGolf League provides a rulebook for players to follow.
