If you like soccer and golf, or even just one or the other, you may enjoy our new Frozen FootGolf Tour this winter. Imagine going hole to hole like a golf course, but by kicking a soccer ball into large holes instead of hitting a golf ball into small holes with a club. That’s FootGolf.

We’ll have three courses set up 9 a.m. Saturdays at Bicentennial Park Dec. 11, Ford Field Jan. 15 and Rotary Park Feb. 5. Register for one Saturday or all three and vie for prizes, awarded to the top finishers in each age bracket for each park and for the overall tour. Register via LivoniaParks.org, visit Livonia.gov/421 or email Ethan at eengel@livonia.gov for more information.
