FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Matt Collins Founder, Colorado FootGolf Association 720-588-0226 ColoradoFGA@gmail.com www.coloradofootgolf.com FootGolf Phenomenon Arrives in the Denver Metro Area Denver, CO – July 29, 2014 The newly established Colorado FootGolf Association (CFGA) will introduce one of the hottest new sports played on a golf course to the Denver area on Sunday, August 17th - FootGolf. The sport, played by kids, teens, and adults of all ages, is a unique hybrid of soccer and golf, endorsed by the PGA of America and supported by the Federation of FootGolf (FIFG). The sport of FootGolf has been recognized and has seen continuous growth in countries all over the world and the FIFG currently holds nearly 20 member country leagues including the American FootGolf League. FootGolf follows many of the same rules as traditional golf. FootGolf is playing as either 9 holes or 18 holes, depending on the course, and each hole is regulation size, at 21-inches in diameter. One 18-hole round of FootGolf typically lasts an average of three hours and the only equipment needed is a Size 5 soccer ball and proper golf attire. In the debut tournament on August 17th at the Family Sports Center in Centennial, groups of up to four people will tee off starting at 5:30 p.m. from designated tee areas. Players must kick the ball down the “fairway” toward the flag and eventually kick the ball into the hole. All the obstacles of a traditional golf course are in play and must be handled accordingly. Each hole has a par of either three, four, or five. Paul Browne, Co-Founder of the Colorado FootGolf Association, sees the sport as a win-win for everyone. “The introduction of FootGolf to the Denver metro area promises to not only add a fun and exciting sport to the golf course experience and give participants a great way to be active and enjoy the beautiful Colorado outdoors, but will also increase the number of customers for our partner golf courses,” says Browne. The August 17th Kickoff Tournament is open to 40 players of all ages, with no experience necessary. The entry fee is $30/person and will feature prizes for lowest total score, longest kick, and closest to the pin. Interested participants can register for the tournament by visiting www.coloradofootgolf.com. The Colorado FootGolf Association aims to have two additional partner metro Denver Golf Courses up and running within the next twelve months, before expanding into Boulder, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs. Denver metro residents can look forward to more tournaments plus the addition of leagues and open play moving into the fall season. For more information regarding FootGolf, contact Matt Collins at 720-588-0226 or ColoradoFGA@gmail.com. ###
