Ballpark Transforms Field Into Mini Golf Course for One Week
A Lansing, Michigan, ballpark has transformed its field into a unique 18-hole mini golf course ahead of renovations to the field.
Cooley Law School Stadium, home of the Lansing Lugnauts, is replacing the turf of the stadium for the first time since 2005. Both Linda Frederickson, the assistant GM of marketing and special events, and head groundskeeper Lenny Yoder saw a once-in-a-decade opportunity they couldn't pass up.
Yoder designed the course, which traverses from the outfield to the pitcher's mound. Visitors can stop by this week from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday and between noon-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday for just $5.
"Cooley Law School Stadium in my mind is more than just a baseball stadium," Frederickson told the Lansing State Journal. "We're trying to make this a community center where lots of things can happen at the ballpark."
It's likely that the field won't need to be reworked for another 10 years. So if you're in the area, head to Cooley Law School Stadium for some imaginative mini putt. But go quickly: The course is only around for a week.
