In what organizers say is the first time ever, a minor league ballpark will be turned into a mini-golf course. And it’s happening here in Toledo!

Before Fifth Third Field is temporarily transformed into an outdoor hockey rink for the Walleye Winterfest in late December, the field will be converted into an 18-hole miniature golf course with sandtraps, doglegs and much more.

The Links, as it’s being called, will be open to the public Thursday, September 25, through Sunday, September 28. Each round costs $15, with proceeds going to charity including the Boys and Girls Club of Toledo and Helping Hands/Walleye Wishing Well. To book your tee time, call the Mud Hens Box Office at 419- 725-4367. For more information, visit online at http://ht.ly/zVXNu
