July 16, 2014: Footgolf has been added to this year’s star-studded Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am, which will be held at Mission Hills Haikou Resort on the tropical island of Hainan from October 24-26.

 

The inaugural Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am Footgolf Qualifying Trials will be held on the Vijay Course at Mission Hills Shenzhen on August 8, with the public invited to compete.

 

The tournament will be a nine-hole challenge for teams of two, comprising one adult and one junior, and the winning team will play alongside superstars from entertainment and sport at the World Celebrity Pro-Am.

 

Tenniel Chu, Vice Chairman of Mission Hills Group, said: “Mission Hills staged the first World Cup of Golf in 1995, hosted Tiger Woods’ first visit to China in 2001 and was the first – and so far only – leisure resort to be named a 5A Level Tourist Attraction by China’s National Tourism Administration.

 

“Therefore, it is appropriate that we should be leading the way in footgolf. This inaugural tournament, with a fabulous prize awaiting the winners, is just the start of a commitment to the sport that will see us launch a domestic league and stage international events.”

 

Footgolf has the same basic rules as golf, except players kick a football rather than use golf clubs and balls.
