Footgolf to return to Semiahmoo

Footgolf, a sport that combines soccer and golf, will return to Semiahmoo Resort, Golf, and Spa on Fridays and Saturdays this summer.

In Footgolf, participants attempt to kick a soccer ball from tee to green into a 21-inch cup, with scoring based on the rules of stroke or match play in golf.

The first two days, Friday and Saturday, May 22 and 23, children under 11 years old play free at Semiahmoo. Footgolf starts at 6 p.m. every Friday and Saturday beginning May 22. On odd days participants can play at Semiahmoo Golf & Country Club, and at Loomis Trail Golf Club on even days.

The cost includes 18 holes and is $16 for adults and $12 for children 18 years old and younger. Balls will be available for rent for $3. Visit semiahmoo.com for more information.
