Premier FootGolf designed an 18-hole par 70 course at Coffin Park in Indianapolis. Open in June, the course runs along the White River and features tree-lined holes and beautiful rolling terrain. The challenging championship layout is located mere minutes from the heart of downtown Indianapolis, making the course an ideal destination for visitors and corporate team-building events.
Premier FootGolf founder Sam Foley designed the Coffin FootGolf course. “Anyone of any age will enjoy the course. It has something for everyone,” said Foley. “The signature hole is number 10. The tee box is a scenic overlook, with downtown Indianapolis and the White River as the backdrop. The tee is situated 50 feet above the fairway, and everyone is sure to experience their longest drive of the day.”
Grand Opening events are scheduled for early June and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard is expected to be on hand, as well as players from the North American Soccer League’s Indy Eleven. Local media will be in attendance as well as collegiate and high school soccer enthusiast.
“I am excited to bring America’s fastest-growing sport to Indianapolis,” said Coffin General Manager Mark Nance. “I believe the community will embrace this exciting new sport. Our central location should be ideal for people from all over the city who want to enjoy this family friendly recreational activity.” To watch a video featuring Nance, click here.

FootGolf is played with a regulation soccer ball. Players try to kick the ball into a 21-inch cup in the least number of strokes. Golf rules and etiquette are in place, and golf course attire is recommended. Typically, an 18-hole FootGolf course fits within the space of nine holes of a golf course.
