Soccer is coming to the fore Some area golf courses are getting in on the fun, hosting the hybrid of the two sports

At top, Aaron Halbert drives a soccer ball while playing footgolf at the La Vista Falls Golf Course. With him are his brother Justin Halbert and Johanna Marr.

A free footgolf event is planned for Sunday at Papio Greens Golf Center in Papillion.

The game is a combination of soccer and golf. Take golf, subtract the clubs and tees and toss in a soccer ball. The object of the game is to maneuver the ball into 21-inch-diameter cups with as few kicks as possible.

Sarpy County Tourism is partnering with Papio Greens, 11050 S. 66th St., to offer a free round between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

For a tee time, visit papiogreens.com and click on "Book Tee Time" under the footgolf tab. Walk-ins are welcome as well.

Players are asked to bring their own soccer ball, as a limited amount are available to rent. All ages are welcome. For information, contact Sarpy County Tourism at 402-332-5771.
