World’s Newest Sport at Mytton Fold

8 September 2014

Is it a goal, a hole-in-one or even a hat-trick?  We’re not quite sure, but one thing is certain – things are getting exciting as Mytton Fold Golf Club launches FootGolf from Sunday 7th September.    FootGolf will be available every Sunday from 2.00 pm.

FootGolf is the fastest growing sport worldwide combining the excitement of football with the precision of golf.   All of the rules are the same as golf, the player with the lowest score wins – it’s just there’s no clubs, just feet, socks and shoes and a bigger ball!

Barbara Bryan, Director of Mytton Fold Golf Club said “We will be the first golf club in Lancashire to offer FootGolf when we launch the sport in September.  With the Ryder Cup just around the corner and the football season upon us it’s an exciting time for the hotel to be introducing FootGolf.  There has been lots of interest and bookings are pouring in – everyone is excited about this new sports opportunity”.

On 1 September England and Everton footballers Fern Whelan and Paige Williams were there to 'kick' start the new attraction. (Seen here with Barbara Bryan)

Local football commentator and former Blackburn Rovers player Kevin Gallacher was also keen to test his football skills on the new course.
