The Boys of Summer are at it again, with baseball season in full swing. And if you're like us at BCG and been to a baseball game recently, I'll bet you've thought about dropping a 9-iron (maybe a wedge) over the centerfield wall for a dinger.
Your favorite Major League Baseball team would probably frown on that -- especially during a game -- but we are happy to announce a new solution.
Billy Casper Golf has been selected to run Meadows Farms, located near Fredericksburg, Va. The 27-hole facility boasts three of the most unique golf holes in the world, including the longest hole in American golf coming in at 841 yards (don't worry, it's a par 6), a waterfall hole and what's known as the Baseball Hole. The last of the three is exactly what it sounds like: a golf hole situated on a real baseball field.
If you think about it, the shot should be pretty easy. Dead centerfield in most big-league ballparks is less than 420 feet away from the plate -- a mere 140 yards.
