SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres and Callaway Golf today announced that The Links at Petco Park, the original nine-hole ballpark golf experience, will return for the third year in a row from Thursday, October 5 to Tuesday, October 10. As part of the experience, golfers will have the unique opportunity to take shots onto the playing field from various tees along an unrivaled, redesigned course within the ballpark.
“Petco Park was the first MLB ballpark to host a nine-hole golf course and we are excited to once again offer this unique and fun experience,” said Padres Chief Operating Officer Erik Greupner. “The event has grown and improved every year and working together with Callaway, we’ve made this year’s course the best layout to date.”
“The Links at Petco Park is the original and the best in-stadium golf experience,” said Harry Arnett, SVP, Marketing, Callaway Golf. “In partnership with the Padres, our mission since we started years ago has been to provide a one-of-a-kind experience on every hole in Petco Park, and that will definitely be elevated this year.”
The fully immersive nine-hole course will feature signature holes from years past at home plate and the roof of the Western Metal Supply Co. building. As part of the newly configured course layout, participants will be able to tee off from underneath the National League’s largest video board screen in left field. Holes throughout the course will also feature unique themes and the opportunity to win prizes. Golfers will be escorted by their own dedicated caddy for the entirety of the course. Mulligans will also be available for purchase with proceeds benefitting Pro Kids, an organization aimed at serving underserved youth by promoting character development, life skills and values through education and the game of golf.
“Pro Kids/The First Tee of San Diego is excited and honored to be a part of The Links at Petco Park again this year,” said Pro Kids CEO, Andrew Holets. “In part thanks to Callaway Golf and the Padres, our kids will be able to continue carrying the values golf instills in all of us; humility, bravery, and kindness.”
Upon completion of the course, golfers will finish their day in the Omni Premier Club, which will be transformed into a Callaway clubhouse. There, they will have the opportunity to relax with additional food and beverages available for purchase, watch other golfers along the course, putt on a putting green and shop for commemorative items.
