Have you seen the latest hybrid sport to come to Ireland?

Ireland was introduced to footgolf a few years back, but there’s a new version about to hit these shores called rugbygolf.

Taking after footgolf, where you try to get the ball into a hole, rugbygolf players can use either their hands or their feet to move the ball towards the hole.

Kicking the ball out of your hand would make sense for longer shots, while using your hands to pass it would be more suited for the ’putting’ shots.

If you can’t picture what it looks like, have a peak at the video below.

You can get to Ireland’s first rugbygolf course next to the ’Footee’ course in Bohernabreena, Dublin 24, from Saturday, September 10, and have a go yourself.
