FootGolf is the talk of the golf world these days. It's either praised as a way to bring in new players and revenue to golf courses or a total affront to the history and tradition of the game.

No matter your opinion of FootGolf, the sport still can't be played with snow on the ground, and the idea of kicking a soccer ball on January or February sounds downright painful. Another portmanteau sport, however, sounds awesome for wintertime fun.

We'll call it Hockey Golf. It's a goalie at a net trying to stop a golf ball hit by a player off a mat down rink. The golfer wins if they score.

The concept is the brainchild of In City Golf, which puts on urban golf tournaments in European cities each year, including having holes teeing off from landmarks like the Colosseum and Italian belltowers.
