The unusual sport combines the challenges of golf and soccer.

Players kick a small soccer ball around the golf course and into the dedicated FootGolf hole, with the winning player being the person who scores the least amount of kicks.

An official launch for FootGolf will be held at the Wembley Golf Course on October 18 and will be attended by Perth Glory soccer players.

Wembley Golf Course general manager Matthew Day said the game is played on days and times when golf isn’t played.

‘It’s a new way to generate revenue and fill times that aren’t being used,’ he said.

‘It is bringing new people, people that wouldn’t normally play golf, to the course.

‘It’s a different vibe.’
