Course Game

Our concept for the course game of crazy foot golf is as follows:
  • Take 9 self standing long handled dust pans and space out along the perimeter or your outdoor space (could also be perimeter of large indoor space). Print the 9 flag download below, cut out flags and attach a paper/card flag to the top of each dust pan handle in a consecutive 1-9 order (the self standing long handled dust pans then become your 9 golf holes). Each paper/card flag for each dust pan hole promotes a very important attribute (also called fruit of the spirit in Christianity).
  • Give each competitor one small ball (such as the plastic golf practice variety) and tell them that the tee off for each hole is beside the preceding dust pan hole. Instruct each competitor to count the number of kicks it takes to complete the course (kicking their ball into each dust pan hole).
  • The short game consists of a complete circuit of 9 holes (one round of 9 holes) and the long game consists of 18 holes (two rounds of 9 holes). Tell each competitor to keep a tally of their number of kicks (this allows you if required to declare the competitor with the lowest number of kicks as the winner/s).
  • The above outlines the singles version of the course game with each person keeping individual tallies of their total number of kicks to complete the course. However, a multiple player version of the course could also be played with each person taking it in turns to kick towards each hole (rather than following one another around the course). In the multiple player version the winner of each hole could/would be the person completing the hole in the fewest number of kicks (the hole would be drawn by players with equal kicks). In the multiple player version the winner of the game could/would be the person winning most holes (the game would be drawn by players scoring equal hole wins).
  • Consider giving each person completing a game a free sticker (a free grape/s might be another option).
COURSE GAME RULES FOR CRAZY FOOT GOLF:
  1. Each competitor is given one small ball (such as plastic golf practice type).
  2. The tee off for each hole is on the ground beside the preceding dust pan hole.
  3. Competitors are only allowed to kick their ball between tee offs and holes.
  4. Competitors complete holes once their ball either touches or crosses the leading edge of dust pans (balls do not necessarily have to enter into or remain within dust pans). .
  5. Each competitor keeps a tally of their number of kicks for each hole. 
  6. Each competitor must move on to the next hole after a maximum number of 10 kicks per dust pan hole (a hole score of 10 is taken if a competitor does not finish a hole in less than 10 kicks).
  7. If a competitors ball is unplayable they can move their ball to a nearby playable position.
  8. A competitor is disqualified if they loose their ball or if their ball cannot be retrieved.
  9. In the single player version of the game only one person at a time is playing a hole (other players cannot start a hole until the previous player finishes the hole). In the single player version of the course game the winner/s is the competitor with the lowest total number of kicks (after either 9 holes in the short game or 18 holes in the long game).
  10. In the multiple player version of the game individual players take it in turns to kick their ball towards each hole (multiple players are playing the same hole). In the multiple player version the winner of each hole could/would be the player finishing the hole in the least number of kicks (the hole could/would be drawn if players have equal kicks). In the multiple player version the game winner could/would be the player winning the greatest number of holes (the game could/would be drawn if players win equal holes).

We invite schools, churches, youth groups etc. to uptake CRAZY FOOT GOLF that has been devised to promote 9 very important attributes (also called fruit of the spirit in Christianity).
