If you are trying out footgolf for the first time, it is definitely best to pick a sunny day sometime in the summer. For maximal performance and experience, I would suggest you play in comfortable sporting clothes. And if you are playing on a regular golf course, you should make sure to respect the dress codes some golf clubs might have.
An important thing to know before you go out for a round of footgolf is that normal football boots with studs are not allowed. Instead, I highly recommend you invest in a pair of turf shoes (TF). TF football boots have small studs that will provide you with the grip required for you to not slip and hurt yourself when kicking the ball. The studs are small enough to not damage the surface you are playing on so you won’t have to worry about some grumpy old golfers complaining…
A personal recommendation from me would be to go for a pair from the adidas Predators collection. I recently went for the Predator 20.3:s and they are the most comfortable shoes, I’ve used so far.

There are two important things you are looking for when you choose the right ball for you - power and precision. Finding this balance is hard for many people and sometimes you might want to have a different ball for a specific course depending on the length and technical difficulty.
A ball that I use a lot is the adidas Uniforia Matchball. I see it as a very reliable and neutral choice. You know what you’ll get from it and it does not disappoint, so when you manage to hit a tree, you can blame no one but yourself.
How hard should you inflate the ball?
In normal football a match ball is normally inflated to around 0,8-0,9 bar depending on the recommendation of the football. In footgolf, however, it is normal to use lower pressure on the football in order to increase your accuracy. With a bit less pressure in the ball, you will find it easier overall to get a good strike on the ball. However, if it’s too little weight in the ball it will be more vulnerable to wind and it won't travel as far. I normally play with somewhere between 0,6 and 0,65 bar for footgolf.
