This weekend, the inaugural California Footgolf Challenge 2013 takes part at River Ridge Golf Club in Oxnard, CA. For those of you not familiar with Footgolf, it is basically golf played soccer style. In other words, you kick a soccer ball and try and get it from the tee box onto the green and into the hole – all while looking extremely stylish in old English attire.
I know for a fact that there are a lot of people interested in the sport and I have been wanting to play for a while. Last week, we received an invite from Senda Athletics (who are one of the sponsors) and I will be taking part in the event with 3 fellow players.
In addition, I’ve decided to live tweet the event. If you are interested in seeing images and finding out what the FootGolf experience is like, make sure to follow SoccerCleats101 on Twitter, where I’ll be posting images, details on what shoes and balls we are using as well as scores for our fourball.
