Home to Lansing Lugnuts who become a golf course for a few days in April
Baseball may not take place at Jackson Field – home of the Lansing Lugnuts – in April as usual. The start of the minor league baseball season has been postponed to May of this year.
But the venue will still be home to a sporting activity that includes baseball.
For four days next month, the stadium will become a golf course as part of the newly established Grand River Country Club.
Golf is combined with baseball on a 9-hole course that spans Jackson Field and will be open to the public April 8-11. Individuals can play nine holes for $ 30 and a foursome can play nine holes for $ 100.
The only clubs allowed are 9-irons or wedges and balls are provided. Golfers hit their tees from points in the hall to nine different greens on the field. You can earn 25 points for a hole-in-one, 10 points for a ball on the green and two points for a ball on the field. The score for each hole is the total score obtained from the three strokes on each tee.
Golfers of all skill levels are welcome to play, but there is a prize for the person with the highest score when the game ends on Sunday. The person with the best number of points receives a red blazer for the championship and an additional night in the owner’s suite for a Lugnuts home game this season.
