Footgolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf, but the game is played on a golf course with a regulation size 5 soccer ball. The course is 9 or 18 holes, and fits within regular golf hole layouts.
Footgolf San Diego was founded by SMBA alumni Ariel Fajerman, and co-run with SMBA ’16’er Ian Cook. This past weekend, Footgolf San Diego hosted a Charity Tournament at the Mission Bay Golf Course with all proceeds benefiting Feeding America San Diego. Over 60 people enjoyed 18 holes of footgolf, dinner, and the great San Diego weather, all that while also helping out a good cause.
Current SMBA ’17 students Sean Bell and Daniel Margolin helped out during the event, with tasks ranging from onsite event setup and player registration, to overseeing the longest drive and closest to the pin competitions.
When you mix a good cause with soccer / golf, San Diego and enthusiastic people, you end up having an memorable time with a good purpose. And that’s exactly what happened this past weekend at Mission Bay Golf Course.
