A surprising twist to traditional golf


The Mount Pleasant & Districts Golf Club is definitely worth a visit, whether you are a traditional golfer or not. While it may look the same as other golf clubs on the surface, and on most days you can see folks carting their buggies across the 18-hole green, there is another, intriguing side to this place.

Combining a love of golf and soccer


This club has the distinction of being the only one in South Australia to offer 'footgolf,' a unique new sport that combines soccer and golf.

The first organised footgolf tournament was played in the Netherlands and its popularity has become evident with its expansion across the world. It follows the same basic rules as golf and entails kicking a soccer ball around a golf course and 'putting' it into large cups rather than the traditional golf-ball sized holes.

The Mount Pleasant & Districts Golf Club recently held a footgolf open day with special guest and patron of the sport, Argentinean soccer player Marcelo Carrusca, who helped to design the course.

The club will form an official footgolf league in October of 2016 and are open to new members, both for footgolf and the more traditional game. You can pay as you go or take out an annual subscription. There is also a junior league and a women's league.

Annual memberships start from $100 for school students and $500 for adults. Pay as you play fees start from $10 for school students and $20 for adults. Footgolf fees range between $5 and $15.

The clubrooms are spacious and there is a well-stocked bar including pies and pasties if you're feeling hungry or thirsty. The location is picturesque with rolling greens and the occasional visit from local wildlife.



I found the members at the Mount Pleasant Golf Club to be friendly, welcoming and more than ready to pose for photos and promote their club. To find out more, email them at mtpgolf@bigpond.com or give them a call on 85682652 any Friday morning. You can also visit their website or Facebook page.
