FootGolf has now been introduced at Hilton Park Golf Club which is located on the North side of Glasgow (7 miles from the city centre).
FootGolf combines the unique setting and ideals of golf, with the skill of football. Therefore it's no wonder it's the fastest growing sport in the UK!
Why not try it for a team building day or simply for a new way to get exercise or to test your footgolf skills. At Hilton Park we have an interesting 18 hole layout measuring 1873 yards set in stunning rural landscapes. We also have excellent clubhouse facilities that will meet your off course requirements.
Because it is so new to our shores, few people know the rules and etiquette which are set out below.
Each party or group will require to have a named organiser with whom the club will make the necessary booking arrangements. In that regard you will find our club dress code for FootGolf (it is different for golf), the code of conduct for all players at Hilton Park G.C and the player contract for FootGolf. Also attached is the official FootGolf dress code if you wish to really look the part, and basic rules.
It is the responsibility of the organiser to understand the following information and to share/forward this information to the rest of the group. All members of the group must fully understand the dress code, code of conduct, the player contract, and basic rules of the game before you arrive for your booking.
Please download the Organiser Agreement Form. You will require to print this off, sign to confirm you have read the following, and shared this with your group. You must bring the completed form with you on the day of your booking and present it in the Pro-Shop before paying your fees.
Note: Failure to provide a completed form at this time will result in the group forfeiting the booking.
• Arrive no later than 15 minutes before your tee-off

The Club Code of Conduct
The code of conduct is there to ensure everyone can enjoy their time at Hilton Park Golf Club. We are proud of our club; it's a family friendly environment, with members from 8 to 85 years of age.
Therefore, we expect all players to conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy at all times and sportsmanship, regardless of how competitive they are.
We expect all players to:
• Demonstrate the upmost respect for all others players and staff.
• Always show respect for the course and facilities.
• Treat everyone as you'd like to be treated.
Examples of unacceptable behaviour: (but not reserved to)
• Foul language of any kind, either if it is directed at someone or not.
• Aggressive behaviour of any kind.
• Distracting other players through unnecessary noise levels on/off the course.
Note: Failure to abide by the code of conduct may result in the offending individuals sent from the premises, and in more serious cases, a ban from the club and the club contacting the proper authorities.
The Player Contract
It is understandable that playing any sport outside has the potential for injury. Slips and trips are common-place in sport, and FootGolf is no different. Players must also be aware that wet ground conditions are possible out on the golf course, and the risk that presents.
Therefore, by signing the 'Organiser Agreement Form', your entire group has agreed take all reasonable safety precautions for both themselves and others whilst participating in FootGolf activities at Hilton Park Golf Club.
Please follow our twitter page @hiltonparkgolf for course updates. If the course is unplayable- we will not be hosting FootGolf on the day, and we will post this notice on the twitter feed.
We will endeavour to make this decision as early as possible. You can also find this feed on our website- www.hiltonpark.net.
