RugbyGolf at Newcastle Golf Centre

RugbyGolf at Newcastle Golf Centre

Have you ever imagined kicking a rugby ball on a golf course?

In 2015 we introduced RugbyGolf (or rugby FootGolf  as it is also known)at Ballybane to celebrate Ireland’s World Cup exploits. Since then it has been available at Ballybane FootGolf.



Rugby FootGolf
Played with the same rules as FootGolf the only difference is the shape of the ball. And herein lies the challenge! With FootGolf the ball generally rolls in one direction. In RugbyGolf, once kicked, the destination of the ball is not so certain!

If kicking the ball is not your strong point, no problem, you can throw the ball also, similar to a pass in rugby. It’s all about getting the ball from the teeing area and into the hole in the fewest kicks or throws.

A brilliant, fun activity for families, groups, stags, hens, team building, sports clubs and more RugbyGolf puts a new twist on the worlds fastest growing sport.

FootBowl – Newcastle Golf Centre Dublin

FootBowl – Combining the worlds greatest sports!

Now available at Newcastle Golf Centre Dublin and Ballybane FootGolf!!!

FootBowl

FootBowl

 

Inspired by tailgate party games that are played before American Football games, FootBowl is great entertainment that will have you hooked from  start to finish. You choose whether to throw like Superbowl winning quarterback Peyton Manning or take a penalty kick like Barcelona legend Lionel Messi, the aim is the same- knock your opponents pins down before they knock yours!

How to Play

Choose your ball-American football or soccer ball.

The aim of the game is to kick or throw the ball from the marker and try to knock down your opponents pins. Any kicking or throwing style can be used.

A match is made up of frames. A frame is completed when all the pins are knocked down. The team that knocks down all their opponents pins first wins the frame. The team that wins the most frames wins the match. A match is made up of 5 frames.

In the final frame, if the player that is losing, is making the last kick/throw and knocks down all 10 pins the game is tied no matter what the score is from the previous frames. The match then goes to a play-off.

Play-off: A single pin is placed on the lane. The first person to knock the pin down wins the match.

Rules

Each player has 20 seconds to throw/kick the ball. The 20 seconds starts from when the opposing teams kick/throw has come to rest. PENALTY: Opposing team regains possession.

Players must kick/throw from behind and between the markers. PENALTY: Opposing team regains possession.

Players cannot interfere with the kickin/throwing of the ball or interfere with the ball contacting the pins. PENALTY: Opposing team regains possession

FootGolf Craze comes to Dublin

 Footgolf at Ballybane FootGolf ClubDo you like football? How about golf? Then you will love the new craze that has hit the Irish shores – FootGolf.

Similarly to golf, FootGolf is played on a course. The objective of the game is to place the soccer ball in a hole using your foot, with the minimum number of strikes. The distance between the tee and the hole is different for each hole and the difficulty of the terrain varies. Same as in golf,  you have water hazards and sand bunkers to consider.

FootGolf is fun and highly “addictive”. The fact that precision, not strength and endurance are key factors to winning, make it a popular family game.

Known also as Football Golf or Soccer Golf, FootGolf is also very popular with those who used to play football well but no longer have the energy to run around a pitch.

Roy Makaay, retired Bayern Munich player says :

“I wish this sport existed 20 years ago. I’ve could have used it to reach even more accuracy in my shots.”
