  • Why should I have my FFANS Index™?

    The FFANS Number System™ makes it possible to footgolfers to compete against one another on an even playing field, no matter how big of a gap in playing ability. Simply put, with a FFANS Index™, the game is more fun.

  • How do I establish a FFANS Index™?

    You must be a member either of a FootGolf Club or a FootGolf Association. Once a player joins a FootGolf Club or a FootGolf Association, he or she should post gross scores. When the player posts five gross scores, and a revision date passes, FFANS™ will issue the player a FFANS Index™.

  • What does a FFANS Course Number™ represent?

    A FFANS Number™ represents the number of strokes needed to play to the level of a scratch footgolfer. A FFANS Number™ is expressed as a whole number (e.g. 12). In addition, a FFANS Number™ can be calculated by this method

    Formula:

    FFANS Index® multiplied by Level Valuation™ of tees played, divided by Standard Level (113) = Answer (rounded to nearest whole number, .4 rounds down and .5 rounds up)

    Example: 10.4 FFANS Index™ x 125 Level Valuation™ / 113 Standard Level Valuation = 11.5 = 12 Course FFANS Number™

  • What is the maximum FFANS Index™?

    The maximum FFANS Index™ is 36.4 for men and 40.4 for women.

  • Which Tees to Play?

    We do not recommend any particular set of tees based on factors such as age or gender. A player may choose a tee that will best match the player’s ability, and perhaps enjoy the round a little more.

    A FFANS Index® is a portable number that can be converted to a FFANS Number™ from any set of tees rated for a player’s gender so the game will be equitable no matter what tees are played. Therefore, we do not have rules or policies that require you to play from a certain set of tees based on your age, ability, Index, etc.

    For competition purposes, a Tournament Committee may specify in the conditions of the competition that players must compete from a specific set of tees. For example, at ProAm FootGolf Tour, the Committee may state in the conditions of the event that all players with a FFANS Index™ of 10.4 or less must compete from the back tees. Otherwise, the decision on what set of tees to use is up to the individual player.
