Sabah’s First FootGolf Course!

The first FootGolf course in Sabah is now available at Sutera Harbour Golf and Country Club (SHGCC).  Football and golf enthusiasts better be ready for the newest sport in town. 



According to SHGCC’s general manager, Rick Blackie, FootGolf is a combination of football and golf. The courses were open last Oct 6th 2020.  

Players are required to kick a football from teeing area to a hole instead of using clubs and golf balls. The distances for each hole are shorter than for golf holes but the course makeup is still designed around holes with a Par of 3, 4, or 5. "

" You only need to wear proper footwear (no studs or cleats), smart sports attire and have a size five football, which can be rented from the club or you can bring your own,” he said.

Rick stated that the game acquires skills and knowledge to manoeuvre the football through the terrain found on the golf course. 

Because it is a precision sport based around the rules of golf and scored similarly, it is not necessary for you to have the most powerful kick, it is more about method and accuracy, with the person taking the least number of kicks being the winner."

We are currently offering a 9-hole course but if it proves popular we can expand to an 18-hole layout later on.”



FootGolf is not a new sport. It is apparently a fast growing sport in the United States, United Kingdom, South America, Europe, Australia and including Southeast Asia. 

FootGolf Malaysia is the governing body for the sport in Malaysia and also a member of the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG).
   
The course opening schedule will be limited so more information or to play FootGolf, please contact the golf registration counter at 088308194.
