Paducah Parks & Recreation will hold the fifth annual FootGolf Paducah Open on Saturday, September 7 at Midtown Golf Course located at 1122 Adams Street.  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.

FootGolf is a hybrid sport that is growing in popularity across the United States.  It has rules similar to golf as players attempt to kick a soccer ball into a cup in as few shots as possible.

Registration for the free event begins on site 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. 

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.
