Baseball Stadium Turned Golf Course Proves a Popular Draw

Spinning: Petco Park Transformed Into Golf Course
The home of the San Diego Padres has been temporarily transformed into a one-of-a-kind golf course.

Fans of both baseball and golf are turning out in droves for the Links at Petco Park, a golf course that will temporarily exist inside the San Diego Padres' stadium. The event is a partnership between the Padres and Callaway Golf.

According to Callaway, the golf course was originally planned to be open for three days, but demand prompted the organizers to add two more days to the schedule.

Those lucky enough to score tickets (they've now sold out multiple times) will get the chance to play on the field.

The passes also grant access to the Padres' locker room, dugout, and indoor batting cages, meaning there's incentive for baseball lovers to come out too.

Each of the nine holes on the course will be scored and has its own theme and prize. Players will make use of Callaway clubs as they try to win.

Wednesday marked the first day that the project was open to the public. Callaway expects 1,600 people to play golf at the course over the weekend.
