Old Union Golf Course in Blairsville, Ga. will host a FootGolf tournament on Thursday, Sept. 18 to benefit the Blood Assurance Foundation. Old Union was the first golf facility in Georgia to put a FootGolf course on their grounds.
FootGolf is a fun new sport that was introduced to North America in 2011 and is a combination of golf and soccer. It is played with a #5 soccer ball at a golf facility with shortened holes and 21 inch diameter cups. The rules are similar to golf.
18 teams of 4 will be playing the 9 hole course at Old Union in the tournament.
Dinner and an awards ceremony will follow. All participants will receive a goodie bag. Check in is at 4 p.m. with a 5 p.m. tee off.
