The foot wedge is officially a legal club to use on the back nine at Elliot Golf Course. 

The Rockford Park District invites everyone to try FootGolf, which combines soccer and golf into a game anyone can play.

The game is easy. It's just like golf but instead of clubs you use your foot and instead of a golf ball you use a soccer ball. Also the holes are about 5 times wider.

All 18 holes of the FootGolf course winds through the back nine of Elliot Golf Course. You can walk or use a golf cart. The holes are all roughly half the distance of a regular hole.  The course is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4 PM till dusk.

I can't think of much better ways to blow off some steam with co-workers after everyone gets off work on Friday. To reserve a tee time call 815-968-PLAY(7529). A round of FootGolf is just 8 bucks. They also host parties on Friday and Saturday and include a round of FootGolf pizza and pop for just $13.
