FootGolf, the hottest new sport to hit the world today. It combines the social aspect and elegance of Golf with the world’s passion for Football.

This brilliant idea will allow sportsmen to share their competitive spirit with their friends and family.

FootGolf is fun and exciting and the fact that strength and endurance are not the key factors to winning make FootGolf a game for every man, woman, and child.

This new sport is attracting everybody’s attention especially those that wish they could play golf or Football well but do not have the energy to run around a pitch.

A Football ball, scorecard and pencil is all you need to play and start enjoying the sport of FootGolf. This is a sport for the XXI Century and in the very near future; everyone will be playing the best game ever invented!

The course at One Stop Golf is the first affiliated footgolf England course in the UK. Designed to test every players ability whether young, old or professional the skill is getting it in the hole.

Each of the 9 holes are differently designed some have bunkers & water hazards and others three tier greens.

The short first par3 hole starts off the game at just over 50 yards but be careful if your ball ends up in a bunker you will start with a penalty shot!

The second and third holes are pretty straight forward providing you don’t go out of bounds. By the time you reach the fourth hole you should be warmed up and ready to whack the ball a little harder as this hole is the first of par 4.

The fifth hole incorporates a water ditch and whilst you won’t lose your ball in the hazard it will cost you a penalty shot!. The 6th features a three tier green and you will do well to make par here.

Onto the seventh and a real risk and reward hole the flag is hidden behind the trees and very close to the out of bounds. The par 4 eighth hole is probably the most difficult hole on the course with lots of mounds to travel over.

The last hole is the longest on the course and needs a right to left shape to get your ball anywhere near the green.

The course has been constructed using all weather synthetic tees and greens to allow continuous play throughout the winter months.

We hope you enjoy!

Hexham Golf Club Construct Brand New Practice Facility

Hexham Golf Club is a traditional parkland course on fast draining land on the south side of the River Tyne, with stunning views over the convergence of the North and South Tyne countryside. Hexham Golf Club recently constructed a brand new practice facility; they have built the facility inside a listed walls compound on their golf course, creating a tranquil area to practice golf.

Inside of the walls features different types of surfaces and practice facilities, including one large, real green, 150m2 worth of synthetic infill target green (installed by European Golf), four 2m x 4m tee stations enclosed with wooden sleepers, and four large bunkers. The green has six holes with four different tee stations all ranging in distances from 20 yards to 120 yards.

European Golf used their 33mm pile height ‘Tour Pro Infill’ product, with a cushion underlay, which was contoured to the client’s specification. We then installed the silica-graded sand, which is then top-dressed with green coloured sand to finish. The green is then rolled to the speed that the golf club requires so that it is realistic to the green speed on the course. The total time for the install was six days, and the rest of the facility is now in preparation and scheduled to be open for next year.
