Fox Hills Becomes First Michigan Golf Course to host The American FootGolf League
Plymouth, MI; March 18, 2014: Fox Hills Golf and Banquet Center is proud to announce that they are the first and only golf course in Michigan that has partnered with The American FootGolf League. FootGolf is a combination of the very popular sports of soccer and golf played on a golf course on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups. On Saturday, May 10 at 9:30am on the Strategic Fox Course, Fox Hills will host a FootGolf kick-off tournament open to the public.
These rules are similar to the rules of golf. FootGolf is a game that is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport, it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG). This game is widely popular in youth both boys and girls and becoming popular across the United States and internationally.
“I was very excited to learn about FootGolf when we had the opportunity to play it at the National Golf Course Owner’s Association (NGCOA) annual meeting in Orlando, Florida,” says owner, Sandy Mily. “We are proud to be the first and to date, only course in Michigan and we are excited to bring this sport to our golf course! We hope to grow this program and look forward to bringing national events here to Michigan through the American FootGolf League “
The American FootGolf League (AFGL) is the exclusive member of the FIFG and governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States. The AFGL is organizing tournaments throughout the country working with golf courses to bring FootGolf to their clubs as another avenue for revenue and to develop the game further. Fox Hills Golf Course is currently looking into hosting a tournament for the AFGL and bringing the sport of FootGolf to the state of Michigan.
Fox Hills is celebrating their 40th Anniversary in 2014 and will continue to bring new and innovative programs, technology and opportunities to the golf community in Michigan. To sign up for the May 10 FootGolf Kick Off Tournament visit www.foxhills.com
