“Dynamo Charities is proud to host its inaugural Foot Golf Tournament,” said Chris Canetti, President, Dynamo Charities. “This event is a great way to bring together fans of the Houston Dynamo and Dash, as well as raise money for a great cause in a fun and unique way.”
A departure from traditional fundraising golf tournaments, the Dynamo Charities Foot Golf Tournament showcases a unique and popular new sport which combines golf with soccer and which directly reflects the culture of the Dynamo and soccer fans in general.
The rules of the game in foot golf are similar to traditional golf, but players compete on shortened holes and use regulation soccer balls. Greens on a foot golf course feature 21-inch diameter cups which players putt into. Anyone can play, from children to adults and from soccer novices to seasoned athletes.
