October 5, 2022 – Midwest League (MWL)Lansing Lugnuts News Release

If you missed the opportunity to get out and enjoy Jackson Field as you’ve never seen before last year or even earlier this year, here’s another chance! The Grand River Country Club, where we’ve paired golf and baseball together, is back for a special Fall Edition! We’ve created a fun and unique 9-hole, 27-shot experience that spans the entire 360-degree concourse.

This special 3-day event is open to individuals and foursomes. Friday thru Sunday Individual Tee Times are $35 for 9 holes and Friday thru Sunday foursomes are $125 total for 9 holes. Golfers of all ability levels are welcome! But this time around, be on the lookout for water hazards and sand traps guarding the greens! *It’s a “Thirsty Saturday!!” From 11 am -7 pm, enjoy select $2 Draft Beers! *

Begin in Pepsi Porch and move your way counterclockwise around the concourse before ending in left-field under the video board. The point system is as follows: 25 pts for a Hole-in-One, 10 pts for a ball on the green, 2 pts for a ball on the field, and 0 pts for a ball in the stands. Your hole score is the total points earned from your three shots added up on each tee.
