You might be asking yourself the same thing we did: “Uh, what’s footgolf?” Turns out, it’s just like regular golf, except each hole is a 21-inch cup, and instead of using a puny golf ball, you’ll get to kick around a regulation soccer ball. So, maybe it’s really not that much like regular golf after all, but who cares? It sounds like loads of fun! Even better, this event, which will take place at the William Land Golf Course (1701 Sutterville Rd.) from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. on April 7, is for a great cause. The Puente Futbol Foundation is dedicated to enhancing young people’s lives through soccer. Initiatives such as their Pass. Run. Pass. Program provides clinics and practices to youths in underserved areas and teaches the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and provides a sense of community. The FootGolf tournament will also feature live music, awards, prizes and giveaways, and even free beer and cider to attendees 21-and-over (this is an all-ages event, however).
