2018 Footgolf Paducah Open

Paducah Parks & Recreation will hold the fourth annual FootGolf Paducah Open on Saturday, September 29 at Midtown Golf Course located at 1122 Adams Street. This is the event that had to be rescheduled due to rain on September 8.  The FootGolf Paducah Open is an 18-hole competitive tournament.  Prizes will be given with first place winning $75 and a trophy, second place winning $50, and third place winning $25.  People of all ages and abilities are welcome.  Each participant needs to bring a soccer ball.  Door prizes also will be given out to participants.

Registration for the free event begins at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start for players at 9:30 a.m.  Since Midtown Golf Course has a nine-hole FootGolf course, participants will be completing the course twice for the tournament.

Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item which will be donated to help stock Paducah Cooperative Ministry’s pantry. 

FootGolf is a hybrid sport that is growing in popularity with rules similar to golf as players attempt to kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible.

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.
