If you’ve never played FootGolf, Hilton Head Island’s first FootGolf Course at Port Royal Golf & Racquet Club is the perfect place to give it a try. Mirroring the basic principles of golf, the goal of FootGolf is to kick a soccer ball into a 21” inch diameter cup in as few kicks as possible.

FootGolf is fun for all ages and a perfect activity for birthday parties and team building activities. With little equipment required to play, you can bring your own soccer balls or rent equipment onsite. We’re proud to be a partner of the American FootGolf League for tournaments and competitions.


  • Wear appropriate clothing. Golf cap and collared shirt preferred.
  • Review the scorecard and wait for your turn. Make sure your kick will not interfere with other players.
  • Kick off your ball from a position up to six feet behind the tee.
  • The ball must be played in a single movement.
  • You are not allowed to push the ball with the top or bottom of your foot. Your foot should be set separate from the ball, clearly behind, before each kick.
  • Wait to play until the ball has completely come to rest. (It is not legal to stop the ball from rolling with the wind.)
  • Play the ball from where it lies. (Exception: You may mark the spot and lift the ball when it may obstruct the other player’s kick or ball in any way.)
  • The player farthest from the hole is the first to kick the ball.
  • The order of play is established based on the score of the previous hole. The player with the best score will kick off first on the next hole followed by the second, etc.
  • If the ball lands in a water hazard, retrieve or replace it within two steps from the closest land point from where the ball entered the hazard, receiving a one stroke penalty or you can place the ball at the position of the previous kick and receive one stroke penalty.
  • Out of bounds markers are annotated with white stakes.
  • Place the ball within two steps from where the ball crossed between the white stakes receiving a one stroke penalty.
