Donald Trump had some choice words for the hit new sport of FootGolf a short while back when he said the following:
“We’re bringing the game down with these 15-inch holes and ‘let’s play soccer golf,’” Trump said according to Golf.com. “Golf should be an aspirational game. We should keep it a high level and not bring it down because a group of people want to sell some more golf clubs or golf balls.”
OK Mr. Trump soooo you dislike FootGolf or “Soccer Golf” but you’re going to have an event for it at one of your courses? This is Donald Trump we’re talking about here. Usually when he says stuff, it seems like he means it. Well, I wonder who or what convinced him. For those of you that don’t know what FootGolf is, it’s like traditional golf except you’re kicking a soccer ball and aiming for a larger hole.
Here’s a tweet for the event for those of you who may be interested:

I totally disagree with Trump on his comment by the way. If you really want to grow the sport, you have to try different things and I think FootGolf is great for the game.
It’ll take more than just lowering prices and offering less holes to play. Yes, those would help but you need to do more. Mind you that I think golf is still in solid shape but it doesn’t hurt to make it grow into a world sport power and FootGolf contributes to this.
So what do you think of Trump’s changed feelings on FootGolf? What’s your thoughts on FootGolf as a whole? Leave your comments and don’t forget to subscribe for more great golf stories! I’m also @ChiGolfRadio on Twitter!
