Have you ever wondered how far you could hit a ball at Comerica Park if given the chance? This fall, you may have the opportunity to find out, although there’s a catch. You won’t be using a bat, and the ball will be of the golf variety. Swings in the home of the Detroit Tigers are about to be more of the Tiger Woods variety. Well, it’s unlikely any of us will hit a ball that well, but nonetheless, the public will be invited to play a unique round of golf inside the ballpark soon.

The Tigers have teamed up with Upper Deck Golf, a company known for bringing these unusual golf experiences to famous stadiums around the country. Participants will tee off from the upper level of Comerica Park, with custom greens on the field, creating a truly one-of-a-kind experience. To add to the frivolity, there will be live music, food and beverage specials, and golf challenges in different locations throughout the ballpark.

You have the rest of the summer to improve your game, as this opportunity won’t take place until after the baseball season ends. Luckily, Michigan is home to over 650 public gold courses, so it should be easy to find a place to get some practice rounds in.

The ballpark golfing event will take place over three consecutive days, with tee times as early as 7am and as late as 9pm. Advanced registration will be required. To be among the first to get the opportunity to play through, you can add your email address to the waitlist now. Those on the list will receive advanced notice of tee times before they go on sale to the general public. Tee times are expected to become available in early August, and to sell out quickly.

VIP tee times will also be available, which will include free entry into driving, chipping, and putting challenges, in addition to a complimentary meal and beverage option.

When tee time rolls around, you may bring your own clubs, or simply use the clubs on site. If bringing your own, note that no drivers or fairway metals will be allowed. Hopefully you’ll have the chance to pitch. I mean is still a baseball park after all.
