Video: Irish lads mix football and golf to create the greatest game ever...

Do you like football? How about golf? Well then, you're going to bloody love a new sport dreamt up by a few Irish lads called Footee.

We saw this video floating around the internet recently and though the idea look pretty cool, but what really caught our attention was the fact that the Footee course is only up the road in Firhouse, Dublin 24!

Check out what Footee is all about in the video below...

According to the Footee website, “Footee is the newest and coolest top class novelty sports game that blends two of the world’s best and most popular sports – football and golf.

“It is a competitive, skilful and addictive sports game that mixes the passion and strength of football with the elegance and tradition of golf.

“Footee is played on a golf course by individuals or in groups but instead of swinging golf clubs and hitting golf balls, players kick footballs. The game rules are identical to golf – each hole carries a par and the aim is to get the football in to the (bigger) hole on each green in as few shots as possible.”

It looks like absolute great craic and we’re just delighted it’s in Ireland. To check out how to get to the course (which opens fully in May) and for 'green fees' check out the Footee website here...
