The San Diego Padres have partnered with Callaway Golf to present The Links at Petco Park – a once-in-a-lifetime experience marrying golf with baseball. From November 5-8, the home of the Padres will serve as a truly unique nine-hole golf experience.
The course begins on a putting green in the dugout of the home team. Golfers will then ascend to the ballpark’s upper deck for four holes where they will hit onto the field. No. 6 will see players tee off from field level near the Western Metal Supply Co. building before making their way to the Batter’s Eye in centerfield for No. 7. The bullpen houses the green for No. 8 while the rooftop of the Western Metal Supply Co. building sets the stage for the final hole.
Each hole features a special theme with an opportunity to win various prizes. At the end of the day, golfers will be able to take-in the experience from The Loft which will be converted into the Callaway Clubhouse.
All 1,600 available tee times were quickly booked when opened to the public, but with 29 other Major League Baseball teams, hopefully the idea catches on.
