The American FootGolf League is developing the necessary structure to promote the sport of FootGolf across the country. From July 2012 to July 2014, the American FootGolf League organized a series of exhibitions and amateur events with the intention of creating awareness around the country and to let the sport enthusiasts know that the AFGL is committed and working towards the promotion of the sport of FootGolf in the United States.
Some of these events were by invitation only, some were experimental, private or corporate games and some were tournaments open for registration to everybody. The main objective was to launch and promote the sport in North America.
