The Diamond Meets the Links
This unique pairing of a round of golf played in a baseball stadium is coming to Greenville with The Links at Fluor Field Presented by Haas Family Golf benefiting First Tee — Upstate South Carolina. And you get to be a part of this one-of-a-kind experience.
A fundraiser for First Tee — Upstate South Carolina, the Links event will bring golfers and families to Fluor Field to play 18 holes of golf. Players will be hitting from areas set up around the stadium – including hitting off the top of The Green Monster – and an on-field hitting area at home plate. Players will hit to three targets on the field and compete to be the first Links at Fluor Field Champion. They will also have the opportunity to tour The Greenville Drive’s Clubhouse.
The event spans two days – Sept. 24 and Sept. 25 – and includes two evening rounds on Friday and Saturday where the field will be lit up for “Glow Golf”.
Greens fees are $125 per player with food and a beverage included. Available times are between noon and 7:15 pm on Friday and 10:15 a.m. and 7:15 pm on Saturday. Greens fees for the Glow Golf experience Friday night from 7:45 to 9:30 and Saturday night from 7:45 to 9:00 are $150 and includes an open bar. Players can sign up for tee times online at www.firstteeupstate.org/thelinks.
This experience is worth watching, and the gates will be open to general admission at $5 per person for the whole day. This is a family friendly event with food and drinks available for purchase.
Sponsorship opportunities are still available (www.firstteeupstate.org/thelinks) and the First Tee — Upstate South Carolina is grateful to Haas Family Golf Center for its title sponsorship, as well as Orange Whip, World Finance Corporation, Delaney’s Irish Pub, JPMorganChase, Corbin Turf and Southern First Bank.
All proceeds from The Links at Fluor Field Presented by Haas Family Golf Center will benefit First Tee — Upstate South Carolina, part of an international youth development organization that uses golf to instill healthy habits and core values.
