Heythrop Park Resort claims to have opened the country’s first resort-based footgolf course at Oxfordshire golf destination. Heythrop Park’s custom-built nine-hole footgolf course is adjacent to the championship Bainbridge Course, and winds through a heavily-wooded area.
The resort’s new footgolf course is open seven days a week, and is playable during daylight hours from £7.50 for nine holes (£4 for under-16s). As it has been purpose-built for footgolf in an area not previously used for golf, Heythrop Park does not suffer the problems faced at many facilities which have to combine their footgolf offering with normal traffic on an existing golf course.
Tim Good, golf, leisure and spa director at Heythrop Park commented, “We’re proud to be the first golf resort to offer footgolf in the UK. With the Manor House and the Bainbridge Course close by, plus stunning views all around, I think we are certainly one of the grandest settings for footgolf. We have over 300 hotel rooms on site, and we anticipate that many of our residential guests, many of whom will be there on business, will enjoy footgolf as a relaxing and fun additional attraction to their stay, along with our golf, spa and leisure facilities.”
