FootGolf at the Westport Country Lodge
If you are looking for a fantastic activity to enjoy on your trip to Mayo, why not try FootGolf at the Westport Country Lodge Hotel.
What is Footgolf?
FootGolf is a sport that blends two of the world’s best and most popular sports – Football and Golf. It is a competitive, skillful and addictive sport that is ideal for a Group, Couples, Families, and a great activity for both Hen's and Stag's.
Come along and really enjoy the sport as it mixes the passion and strength of football with the elegance and tradition of golf. FootGolf is played on a golf course, however instead of swinging golf clubs and hitting golf balls, players kick a standard size football from tee to green.
The game rules are identical to golf – each hole carries a par and the aim is to get the ball into a bigger (21”) hole on each green in as few shots as possible.
FootGolf is ideal as a corporate team building activity and we are delighted to offer special midweek rates for groups. Click HERE to email us for rates and availability.
