Football Golf in Salzburg – Wals
A little outside of Salzburg and easy to reach from Eugendorf, you will discover the only football-golf facility in Austria. If you happen never to have heard of this sport, it is definitely high time to give it a try. You don't need any prior experience, just a pair of sports/gym shoes, and you are ready to go.
Football golf – the name says it all
At first sight, you would think you have a golf course in front of you. Up to 175 meters-long fairways, tees, bunkers, flags, manicured grass,... But at second glance, the differences become clear: tree trunks that have been either erected or laid out strategically, target baskets, extreme dog legs, pipes … Football golf is played with a football, your foot and, best of all, with a whole group of people. At the start of each hole, there is an overview sign showing the obstacles you have to negotiate. At that point, there's nothing left to do but tee off. If you are ambitious, your goal will be to complete all 18 holes under the par 72.

New sport with its own championships
The home of football is England, but the home of footgolf is actually Scandinavia. In fact, they have been playing the sport there for 15 years. The soccer park in Wals is the only one in Austria. Nowadays, there are separate European Championships and World Championships in footgolf, while the sport continues to grow in popularity. No wonder, since it combines the positive aspects of football and golf at reasonable prices and without the need for lots of special equipment.
