How to play Urban Golf – Safely


Urbangolf and CrossGolf are coming of age because now there is a ‘golf ball‘ that doesn’t break windows or dent cars, and that is a very big deal.

SO, WHAT IS URBAN GOLF? To be honest, it’s pretty much the same thing as real golf, but now you play through, over and around the world we all live in. When playing cross country we call it Crossgolf, in urban environments like construction sites etc. it’ urbangolf and when you get really pure and want to play in really urban environments you play streetGolf.

The one clear difference between golf and urban golf is the creativity and shot making. In urbangolf you usually play one or two clubs and go for light posts, fire hydrants etc. Here are a few retro videos that will spell it out more. After watching, feel free to buys some balls and try out our new sport.


This is the big question everyone wants to know. Basically being able to play golf ‘in the world we live in’ eliminates all the traditional golf barriers to entry of time, money and travel. Since all you need is a club, ball and shag, we’ve simplified golf down to an affordable activity anyone, (including kids who don’t have cars) can do. Here are a few differences and advantages Off-course urban or crossgolf have over traditional golf.

  • THE SPORT: My view is that we’ve created the Frisbee/Disc Golf of golf where anyone can simply walk out their back door and start playing the game. It’s really that simple. There is no need to multiple clubs, clothing or a dedicated course. You create your own course to fit your skills, environment and artistic style.
  • THE BALL: The almostGolf ball really is something revolutionary. It’s not just a Callaway foam ball with nice packaging but hits like a potato. It has CO2 pressure inside the ball and this is critical, because now the ball can ‘bounce’ off the club face just like a golf ball, but without the danger or damage of a super heavy traditional golf ball. Basically, the almostGolf ball fits the world we live in far better than a traditional golf ball.
  • THE COURSES: This is where off-course urbangolf, streetgolf or crossgolf blow golf away. Now you can create courses virtually anywhere you live, as long as you have some grass to work with. Best of all, no one can get hurt. I’d go on and on about course options, but it might be best to check out our blog category for course design to get more tips and tricks.
  • CONVENIENCE: Golf course golf is great. It just takes too much time and money for most people. Off-Course urban/streetgolf pretty much doesn’t cost more than a bunch of balls. Best of all, you can now just grab some balls, a shag and club and be ‘on the links’ by walking out your back door. How cool is that. We make golf easy. Then, when you’ve played a bunch of holes, you can pack it in when ever you want, because you didn’t have to pay $25-300 to play.
  • CLUBS: Off-Course golf simplifies golf by cutting down the number of clubs you need to play. When you are just hitting around the neighborhood, you can have a lot of fun with one club. Why carry more? It’s a lot more fun to simply hit and walk, hit and walk. Try it, you’ll like it.CHECK OUT OUR BLOG: We will be talking alot about how to play all versions of off-course golf, be it Streetgolf, crossgolf, urbangolf or some other morph of play. then join the network and give us your comments and suggestions.
