It's that time again! Lace those shoes, dig up your best golf clothes, find your lucky ball, and get on out to Foster Golf Links for the 2nd-annual ECS FC Footgolf Open!

This year's event will be held on July 25th with a 2:00 PM shotgun start time. The open will be hosted once again at Foster Golf Links in Tukwila, just down the road from Starfire Sports. All proceeds will benefit Emerald City Supporters FC, the amateur soccer club of the Emerald City Supporters! Proceeds will help to purchase equipment, field time, and uniforms. Proceeds will also support hosting of the 2015 Supporters' Cup matches between ECS FC and Timbers Army FC at Starfire.

Just like last year, entry fee for the ECS FC Footgolf Open will be $30 per player. The tournament will consist of a beginners division and competitive division, and is open to everyone of all ages. Bring your family and friends, and don't worry about playing ability! Children under 10 years old play FREE with a paid playing adult accompanying them.

FAQ:

What is closest to pin?
We will select a particular hole which is possible to hit a hole in one. The players who get closest to the pins will receive a certain prize for this particular hole.

What is a mulligan?
A mulligan is an opportunity to hit the ball again in case you take a bad kick. Basically, it's making the bad kick never happen, but it'll cost you $5 and players are limited to 4 mulligans each.

Is there an age restriction?
This event is all ages. The clubhouse also has an all ages section with a large television for the match. Obviously, there is an age restriction for the purchase & consumption of alcohol.
