At a celebratory “Kickoff Ceremony” on Saturday, March 12, the City of Long Beach began a 6-month trial of FootGolf at Recreation South GC, commonly referred to as “Little Rec”. Combining golf and soccer, FootGolf players kick a #5 soccer ball from a tee box into a 2 ½ foot hole that generally follows the regular course layout, but does avoid bunkers and golf putting greens. During the trial, FootGolf reservations or games may be reserved or by “walk up” every day of the week after noon. For information, contact the Little Rec Golf Shop at (562) 438-4012. Soccer balls may be rented, and tennis shoes or Indoor Soccer Shoes must be worn for FootGolf.
