If you’re a true golf nut, you’ve undoubtedly found yourself daydreaming at a Major League Baseball game about the sport you love. You imagine the perfect lie you’d get on Augusta-like grass, perfectly manicured in the outfield. You do the math that straight away center field, at around 400 feet, seems forever away for a ballplayer, but really is only about 130 yards and a wedge or 9-iron for you to clear.
Well, snap out of that daydream because Callaway and the San Diego Padres have teamed up to create The Links at Petco Park, a 9-hole golf experience that will allow golfers to hit shots from around the Padres home ballpark to greens situated in the outfield of the stadium.
“San Diego is a premier golf destination and Callaway is a premier golf brand, so partnering on this event makes perfect sense,”
Padres Vice President of Corporate and Event Revenue Jeremy Horowitz said in a press release. “The opportunity to play golf inside a Major League ballpark does not come along every day. We are looking forward to working with Callaway to make this an unforgettable experience, and to seeing our partnership grow over the coming years.”
“We’re always trying to provide authentic golf experiences with our products that are unique and engaging, and that’s exactly what this partnership with the Padres is about,” said Callaway Sr. VP of Marketing Harry Arnett. “Playing a nine-hole course at a venue like Petco Park with Callaway golf clubs and balls will be a once-in-a-lifetime round, and we are excited to be a part of it.”
