BUTTE – This summer, Highland View Golf Course will be offering “Footgolf” on a trial basis. Footgolf is a combination of soccer and golf; it is an activity gaining popularity in Montana and nationwide. Footgolfers use a regulation #5 soccer ball on a golf course, the rules and etiquette mimic that of traditional golf played on shortened holes. It is a great activity for families, children, and adults. Footgolfers at Highland View will play on the Par 3 Course and can play alongside a golfer playing traditional golf. It is a great way to introduce a new generation of players to golf while trying out something fun and different. The addition of Footgolf to the Par 3 Course at Highland View will allow for a more complete usage of the public facility and help improve the quality of life for all citizens of Butte-Silver Bow.
The fees for Footgolf are $10.00 per round for Adults (19 and 0ver) and $3.00 per round for Juniors (18 and under), every day except Monday and Wednesday's which are Footgolf “Junior Dollar Days” where a round will cost $1.00 for Juniors. Highland View has 12 soccer balls to lend to players at no additional cost, but bringing your own is encouraged. Highland View Members can gain access by presenting their membership number to Clubhouse staff. Players must wear Golf or Tennis shoes.
Highland View will be hosting two Footgolf Camps this summer: July 13-16 and 27-30. Camp will run from 9:00 a.m. to noon at $25.00 per camper, per week. Campers should bring their own soccer balls if they have them. Group reservations for teams or business groups are available, rates will vary.
