Chimera Golf Club to Host FootGolf Southwest Regional Championship

(Henderson, NV) – The American FootGolf League (AFGL) U.S. National Championship will hold a Southwest Regional Championship at Chimera Golf Club, on Sunday, October 16th at 2:30 p.m.

The Southwest Regional Championship feeds into the AFGL U.S. National Championship, which will be held in November at Desert Willow Golf Resort in Palm Desert, CA.

“AFGL has worked for the last four years to create a network of nearly 500 courses in the United States that have FootGolf courses,” said U.S. National Championship Director Julia Barajas, “and the National Championship is the next logical step in the growth of the sport and its integration into the competitive sports landscape.”

FootGolf, which is played on a traditional golf course, involves the kicking of a soccer ball down the fairway of the course, with the intention, similar to golf, of reaching the hole in as few “strokes” (kicks) as possible. In FootGolf, the hole is increased to 21” in diameter in order to accommodate a regulation soccer ball.

FootGolf is suitable for players of various ages and genders, so the tournaments feature four different player classifications for the U.S. National Championship: Juniors age 12-17, Men age 18-45, Seniors age over 45 and Women age 18 and over.
