This September for two weeks only, Marvel Stadium will be transformed into the ultimate golf course.

If you’re looking for somewhere new to show off your swing, Marvel Stadium is the new place to be with the arrival of Stadium Golf this September.

In a Melbourne first, Stadium Golf will see Marvel Stadium’s iconic pitch, known for hosting internationally acclaimed concerts and Australia’s most loved sporting codes, including AFL, Soccer, Rugby, and Cricket, transformed into an interactive nine-hole golf course.

Presented by Sportsbet, Stadium Golf will run exclusively from September 14-24 and give people the chance to hone in on their skills by driving golf balls onto the very pitch where sporting heroes have made history.

Stadium Golf participants will have the chance to tee off from all levels of Marvel Stadium. Teeing off from multiple locations around the Stadium, including exclusive areas such as corporate boxes and the player entrance, fans will be able to test their talents with 18 strokes for the nine- holes set out on the famous green.

AFL & Marvel Stadium’s Head of Consumer Business, Scott Fitzgerald, said the new initiative was one not to be missed.

“We are pleased to launch Stadium Golf in Melbourne and offer an incredibly unique and an unforgettable experience for fans in the sporting and entertainment capital,” Mr. Fitzgerald said.

“Marvel Stadium is a true entertainment hub fans can enjoy all year round, and we are eager to welcome guests on site to interact with the stadium in a way we have never seen before.”

You don’t even need to bring your own golf clubs, with the event providing them for you courtesy of Taylor Made.

While a bit of golf is always good, there are also fantastic prizes on offer throughout the course for you to win from the hole-sponsors. One such is Resimax, which is awarding $10,000 to the first person to score a hole-in-one on its sponsored hole of the course in September.

The unique opportunity will be available for a limited time and will offer clubhouse inspired food and beverages such as club sandwiches and more that will fuel guests ahead of their ultimate Stadium Golf experience, just in time for Footy Finals season.

Open for two weeks only, golfers are encouraged to get some swinging practice in and secure tickets early to avoid missing out on what’s set to be this year’s best round.

Prices start from $105.90, and sorry kids, but this one is for ages +18 and over only.
