PORTSMOUTH, Va. - Try your hand - or foot - at two sports combined into one.

The Links at City Park in Portsmouth have incorporated soccer onto the golf course.

In "footgolf," players kick a soccer ball from a special orange tee marker on the golf course. The goal is to land the ball into a 21-inch hole marked by orange flags.

The highlight is, you don't need a bag of clubs, golf balls or golf tees, and this is a game you can play even if you have zero golf skills.

You pay standard green fees - $12 for adults and $10 for juniors.

Carts are optional for an additional $5.

The holes are between 40 and 100 yards for children, and can be up to 200 for adults. Like golf, there are par 3's, 4's and 5's.
