Street Golf – An Urban Phenomenon

You may be wondering ‘What is street golf?’ Well, it’s as the label says really – golf you can play outdoors in the street. This is thanks to semi-rigid balls which eliminate the usual obstacles one faces in the city centre – bus stops, windows, doors, etc.

Street golf is coming for a second time to the Place de la Croix-Rousse in Lyon, following the success of the first event. There will be a six-hole course, costing 5€ per person.

Street golf is a fun and relaxed way to spend a day with friends. But it also has important links with the usual game of golf. Indeed, it’s a good way to practise many skills necessarily for the outdoor sport – such as accuracy.

More than Just Golf

Other than the street golf on the Place de la Croix-Rousse, there will be a street-art workshop, beer bar, food trucks for refreshment, as well as a DJ.

The event will also be perfect for families, as there is a free putting workshop, as well as a painting workshop just for children.
