Callaway has made every day-dreaming golfer’s fantasy a reality once again. The Carlsbad, California-based company has taken over Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres and turned it into a nine-hole golf lover’s paradise.

Playing from around the stadium, players try to hit onto the designated greens (par) or even better, inside a circle around a pin (birdie) to compile the best nine-hole score.
Here’s how Callaway described the Links at Petco experience.
Callaway Golf and the San Diego Padres are teaming up again to create the Links at Petco Park, an incredible 9-holes of golf winding through beautiful Petco Park. This is the third year for The Links, which is both the original and the best stadium golf experience.
This year features an all new course design, with new tee box locations, new green complexes, and unique themes for each hole. The improved clubhouse includes food & beverage options, logo merchandise, and spectator tickets are available to the public.

As in previous years, each round includes scorecards, player caddies, music, hole-in-one prizes, and hole attendants. Players use brand new Callaway equipment and golf balls, and hit 2 shots on each hole. They also receive a free limited edition Links at Petco hat, and golfers who purchase the premium package receive a custom Callaway Wedge.
This year’s event is also highly focused on charitable contributions. Pro Kids | The First Tee of San Diego is selling mulligans for the second consecutive year. At the 2016 Links, the money raised by Pro Kids allowed them to upgrade their programming to include a variety of golf business, and engineering opportunities, and more educational workshops for their members. Golf Fights Cancer, K9s for Warriors, and Puppies Make Me Happy are also non-profits for The Links this year.
The Links at Petco Park opened on Oct. 5 and will be available through Oct. 10.
