Mansfield National Golf Course, Mansfield

Mansfield National Golf Course is a nice 18 hole, public golf course with everything you would expect to find at a golf course, a pro-shop, driving range and carts.  There’s even a good little grill with yummy burgers.  What you might not expect to find are soccer balls!  Mansfield National is one several local golf courses that are hosting a new game in addition to traditional golf, called foot golf!

My kids and I went out to give it a try, and had a great time kicking the ball around the course!  It’s a great way to get the kids outside and running around!

Check out My Mommy Tips for making the most of your game!

Know Before You Go

Although you play along with traditional golfers, Foot Golf has shorter hours.  Call ahead to set up a tee time.

Players should be old enough to walk the entire golf course.  The four-some behind you won’t want to wait while your younger children “rest”.

Before renting a cart, determine how far your children can kick.  Mine youngest could only kick about 50 ft., and the cart was more of a burden.  Of course, if they are playing, and you are just watching, the cart is kinda nice!  But really, get out and play!

Like golf, you can’t have more than a four-some per game.

Don’t forget sunscreen.

Soccer Balls

Foot golf is played with soccer balls.  Mansfield National will rent you a ball for $3, which didn’t sound like much, but then there were 6 of us playing and I paid $18 for balls when my daughter has a dozen at home!

Tees

Foot Golf doesn’t use traditional tees, the courses are a little shorter.

Hazards

Like golf, you still have sand and water hazards.

The course 

Although Mansfield National has 18 holes, for Foot Golf they pay the front 9 twice.

They have these huge holes for the ball, too!

It’s Hot In Texas 

There are water coolers around the course, but bring a bottle of water with you and fill it up.  Little ones dehydrate much more quickly than adults, even on overcast days.
