Following the successful FIFG World Cup held in the glorious summer sunshine of Argentina in January many countries the world over break into spring with the start of their 2016 National leagues and competitions.
The irish kicked off their National Tour on the 6th of March in Kilkenny whilst in France last weekend the 1st & 2nd stages of The Footgolf Cup attracted some European stars from Holland and the UK to their opening events of 2016. The Hungarian Footgolf Federation had a special event for this Easter weekend with some very seasonal prizes!!
The first event of the UK National Tour took place in beautiful hilly Devon, England proving a bit tiresome for some, and in Italy the season is well on the way there with prizes galore for many different types of events. The popularity of the "Team" event at the World Cup has fuelled the imagination of many associations and they are introducing competitions for Pairs, Teams, Ladies Juniors and Seniors proving that Footgolf can be played at a competitive level by virtually anyone!!
Other countries starting their seasons are Holland, Switzerland, Spain, Slovakia and Portugal but it is not just in Europe where Footgolf is getting everyone excited.
The Japanese have taken to the sport in true style with some creative fashions hitting the fairways and greens. They stole the show on the Footgolf catwalk at the World Cup and soon you will be hearing some exciting news of a special Ladies event taking place in the USA between the hosts and Japan........stay tuned!!
