DAY #1: Living the Good Life – 30 Day Challenge (Foot Golf)

As I have previously announced, I am challenging myself to doing something new, unique or different for the next 30 days. Feeling a bit stagnant and not honoring my inner child, creativity and physical strength enough has swaddled me in too much adulthood and not enough play. With the mission of The Henley Co. to help our clients to enjoy more recess in their lives, I have to talk the talk and walk the walk.

Yesterday was Day #1 of my Living the Good Life – 30 Day Challenge. As a family, we went to play the new sports craze, Foot Golf. Located at the Lawrence Welk Resort Golf Course, Foot Golf is perfect for all ages (and for all of us who can’t master golf but can kick the ball far!) Played on a traditional golf course, Foot Golf is played in the spirit of golf. You kick off (tee off) from special soccer ball marked tees and you aim for the hole (about the size of 2 soccer balls). You play 18 holes like all serious golfers. At Lawrence Welk Golf Course, you are playing right along side traditional golfers. Foot golfers aim for the red flag; while golfers aim for the yellow.

Growing up as soccer players, this game was right up our alley, and allowed everyone in the family to participate. We had ages 14 through 67 in the competition. The game took us about 2-hours to play. It was the perfect mix of physical ability and many belly laughs.  I highly recommend this activity for families and soccer teams! The price is very affordable – $15 for adults, $10 for kids under 18.
