Footgolf is a hybrid sport with rules similar to golf as players attempt to kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible. The sport is growing in popularity across the United States.

Midtown Golf Course, located behind Jetton soccer field, offers a free nine-hole course where traditional golfers, footgolfers, and disc golfers can play at the same time with each hole having a disc golf basket and holes for golf and footgolf.

The first ever FootGolf Paducah Open was held October 17, 2015.  For more information about the FootGolf Paducah Open, contact Recreation Specialist James Weemsby email at jweems@paducahky.gov or by phone 270-444-8538.
