FootGolf Coming To Peoria

Peoria, meet FootGolf.

The game, which is rising in popularity across the state and nation, is basically golf played with a soccer ball. Unlike golf, though, it doesn't require a lot of training or expensive equipment.

"Anybody can play. You don't have to have golf skills or soccer skills. And regardless, you're out there to have a good time," said Sarah Cordis, Peoria Park District Director of Golf Operations.

She told WMBD's Robbins and Markley that Park Districts everywhere are seeing fewer and fewer people hit the links. This game, she says, will hopefully bring folks back to the courses.

"Why not try it?" Cordis said.

It's also a game that doesn't eat up an entire afternoon. Cordis says it only takes 45 minutes to an hour to play a round.

You can try it out for free Saturday at Detweiller Golf Course starting at noon. Cordis recommends bringing your own soccer ball, but there will be a few available to rent. Click here for more information.
