ka‘anapali golf courses now offering footgolf

KaanapaliFootGolfKa‘anapali Golf Courses began offering FootGolf to the public on Friday, June 12 with a ceremony at 3:30pm on the first tee of the Ka‘anapali Kai Course, followed by a complimentary game (open to the public).

Nine and 18 holes of FootGolf will be available at Ka‘anapali after 3:30pm 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. Ka‘anapali Golf Courses is the first facility on Maui to offer FootGolf and joins 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,” says Ed Kageyama, PGA General Manager at Ka‘anapali 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.

For more information, please call Ka‘anapali at 661-3691.
