Trade golf balls for soccer balls and golf clubs for your legs, and you’ve got a whole new sport.

Called footgolf, this new hybrid game can be played at close to 20 traditional Minnesota golf courses and counting, including about a dozen in the Twin Cities and others in Rochester, Brainerd, the Mille Lacs area and more. There's even a footgolf-only course in West St. Paul.

The object of the game is simple: Start at the tee, and get the ball into the hole with as few kicks as possible. Courses are either nine or 18 holes, and players can book tee times and rent carts and balls at most locations.
