The second I heard about this I was intrigued. As I arrived at the golf course and met Shane Johns on the golf pro all of my doubts were washed away.
This simply is a marvelous game for budding golfers and families to get involved in a fun outdoor activity.Safety Beach is a second course in Victoria to set up what could become a new craze in Australia. It is currently sweeping Europe and America with over 400 US golf courses offering foot golf.
After asking Shane to guide me through the process his comments secured something I was curious to know, “generally this game will take just over one hour. We recently had a family where the mum hired a cart whilst the boys played the game and got really involved.” Shane continued, “No-one has got ahole in one yet, I am confident birdies are there on the course but it definitely achallenge for all ages.”
Shane also went on to say that soccer clubs, schools and other active groups have been interested and taking up the game.
Of course it’s something new and different but as soon as you see what it’s all about you will be back for more. Using a size five soccer ball you are challenged over nine holes just as you would be in golf. There are par five holes, par three holes and par four holes and it is very challenging.
The other interesting part of this game is that the hole and flag do not intrude on the normal game of golf and whilst there will be golfers teeing off you can very easily have a team of four following behind playing foot golf.
So a revolution is beginning right here at Safety Beach. Not only is this radical for a golf course, it offers great training, exercise and outdoor skills you may never have imagined you could possess. Check out their website for more details www.safetybeachcountryclub.com.au/mini-golf
