Target Game

Our concept for the target game of crazy foot golf is as follows:
  • Position two upright 10 litre buckets say 5m plus apart (if playing outdoors use sand etc to weigh down the buckets). One bucket is called the ball bucket and other bucket becomes the target bucket and a handful of small balls is placed in the ball bucket (soft coloured play variety when indoors or tennis balls when outdoors). 
  • Print two copies of the 9 flag download below and attach to the outside of each bucket. The target bucket represents 9 target holes with the 9 flag download promoting 9 very important positive attributes (also called fruit of the spirit in Christianity and by Christians).
  • Each competitor takes one ball from the ball bucket and places their ball on the floor beside the ball bucket. If playing together each player should try to choose a different coloured/marked ball.
  • The object of the game is for each player to kick their ball once from beside the ball bucket towards the other target bucket (aiming to strike the target bucket). Striking the targeted bucket with a single kick is called a hole-in-one.
  • After each single kick each player dribbles their ball back to beside the ball bucket ready for their next single kick attempt to strike the other target bucket. This continues until each player has had 9 single kick attempts at striking the target bucket.
  • In the multiple player version competitors should kick-off at the same time (or in quick succession) towards each target bucket (the single target bucket represents 9 target holes).
  • Players count the number of times they strike the target bucket after single kicks from beside the ball bucket and in multiple player situations the winner is the player who scores the highest number of single kick bucket strikes.
  • Consider giving each person completing a game a free sticker (a free grape/s might be another option).

TARGET GAME RULES FOR CRAZY FOOT GOLF:


  1. Each competitor takes one ball from the ball bucket and the kickoff for each hole is on the floor beside the ball bucket. If playing together indoors, each player tries to use a different coloured ball (4 colours). If playing together outdoors, it will be advisable to mark the tennis balls so that they are distinguishable.
  2. Each competitor kicks their ball once from beside the ball bucket towards the other target bucket and the aim is strike the target bucket (a one kick bucket strike is called a hole-in-one). If playing together, all kick together or in close succession.
  3. After each kick competitors dribble retrieve their ball and place on the floor beside the ball bucket before another single kick attempt to strike the target bucket. This continues until competitors finish their 9th kick towards the 9th target hole (for 18 holes competitors simply play 2 rounds).
  4. Each competitor keeps a tally of holes-in-one (if any, when their single kicks strike the target bucket).
  5. The winner/s is the competitor who scores the greatest number of holes in one (after either 9 kicks towards 9 holes in the short game or 18 kicks towards 18 holes in the long game).

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


Old version:
When playing indoors take one self standing long handled dust pan and place against a wall with the dust pan facing away from the wall. When playing outdoors take one long handled garden fork* and insert into ground (usually grass or beach). The single dustpan or garden fork acts as 9 holes (saves using 9 dustpans or 9 forks to create 9 holes).
Print the 9 flag download below and attach to the top of the dust pan or fork handle (the self standing long handled dust pan or upright garden fork then becomes your 9 golf holes). The 9 flag download promotes 9 very important positive attributes (also called fruit of the spirit in Christianity and by Christians).
Say 5m away from your dustpan or fork hole place a bowl of small balls (soft coloured play variety when indoors or tennis balls when outdoors). Each competitor takes one ball from the ball basket and the floor beside the ball basket becomes the kickoff point for each target hole.
Each competitor has one single kick towards each hole (the aim is to kick a hole-in-one for each target hole). After each kick competitors need to retrieve their one ball and place on the floor beside the ball basket before a single kick towards the next target hole (and continue until their 9th kick towards the 9th hole).
In the multiple player version competitors should kick-off at the same time (or in quick succession) towards each target hole.
The short game consists of 9 kicks towards 9 holes (one round of 9 holes) and the long game consists of 18 kicks towards 18 holes (two rounds of 9 holes).
Tell each competitor to count the number of successful hole in one kicks (if any) that occurs when they manage to touch either a dust pan or a garden fork after their single kicks (this allows you if required to declare the competitor with the highest number of successful hole in one kicks as the winner/s).
Consider giving each person completing a game a free sticker (a free grape/s might be another option).

Each competitor has one kick towards each hole and the aim is kick a hole-in-one for each hole. If playing together, all kick together or in close succession. A hole-in-one occurs when the ball touches the dustpan (indoor game) or garden fork (outdoor game) after single kick attempts.
After each kick competitors retrieve their ball and place on the floor beside the ball basket before attempting to kick a hole-in-one towards the next target hole. This continues until competitors finish their 9th kick towards the 9th target hole (for 18 holes competitors simply play 2 rounds).
Each competitor keeps a tally of holes in one (if any).
The winner/s is the competitor who scores the greatest number of holes in one (after either 9 kicks towards 9 holes in the short game or 18 kicks towards 18 holes in the long game).
