StadiumLinks: The Experience of a Lifetime
Updated: Dec 2, 2022
StadiumLinks brought their idea to Minute Maid Park in September of 2018. Since then, the business has spread to a handful of other stadiums across the United States.
Introduction to the Concept
StadiumLinks is a relatively new company which offers a unique experience to combine your favorite major league stadiums with the increasingly popular sport of golf. At the moment, four MLB ballparks are partnered with StadiumLinks to create somewhat of a TopGolf experience. Limited tickets are available to the public prior to each weekend of festivities. As you enter the stadium, security checks will ensure a safe environment for all golfers. Holes placed around the field range from 50 to 170 yards away from the tee boxes, simulating a real-life golf course. Organized signs throughout the stadium direct you through the nine-hole course. Driving mats are scattered in both the upper deck and lower levels of the stadium.
More About the Company
Company founder, Jonathan Stephens, is extremely excited to be able to bring such an interactive experience to MLB fans across the country. In early November, StadiumLinks brought their services to the St. Louis Cardinals stadium.
"If we're doing our job right, we're matching the experience itself with the epic view and the epic facility. It's a legendary stadium,” Johnathan Stephens explained.
StadiumLinks also offers 18 commemorative balls for you to hit onto the course. Although the round itself should take no more than a couple of hours to complete, other challenges and hangout spots throughout the stadium allow for guests to congregate following the main event. Some competitions are based on chipping and putting where you can win free tickets to future games or your choice of a different prize. Food and drinks in the lounge contribute to the TopGolf vibe, helping to elevate the overall experience.
If you and your friends are interested in a more luxurious day at the ballpark, StadiumLinks provides a VIP Package where guests can enjoy a more privileged and exclusive experience. VIP guests are granted access to a private driving range, extra commemorative balls, and a private food & beverage menu.
Impression on the Fans
Julia Row is the Vice President of StadiumLinks. So far, devoted fans have been happy with the extraordinary transformations of these stadiums into golf courses.
"We have really great fans that are not only tied to the team but also to the ballpark, and so a lot of things that we've done that have been new and different, thankfully they've supported,” Row added.
The Future of StadiumLinks
As StadiumLinks continues to grow in popularity, perhaps a new demographic of people will be introduced to the sport of golf. The StadiumLinks experience will surely resonate with you and your friends for years to come. As my dad always says, “Hit ‘em straight and hit ‘em far.” With those words of wisdom, a successful outing on the course should be definite and the time of your life will be guaranteed!
