Entertainment and activities | June 4, 2015

Drop by the Academy at BraeBen golf course to test out the newly designed FootGolf course. This nine-hole course is the first of its kind in Mississauga and encourages residents to adopt active and healthy lifestyles while trying out a new and diverse sport.

FootGolf is a new and exciting sport that is perfect for individual or group play.

The objective of FootGolf is to sink a soccer ball into a 21-inch cup in as few shots as possible.

FootGolf is played with a regulation five soccer ball. The soccer ball is kicked from the tee blocks with a goal of reaching the hole in the fewest kicks possible.

Dick Howard, former Canadian international soccer goalkeeper and a member of the Soccer Hall of Fame, is an avid FootGolf player and spokesperson for the Canadian FootGolf Association (CFGA).

Soccer balls are available for rent or players are welcome to bring their own size five soccer ball.
