Grab your putter and head over to Cooley Law School Stadium Tuesday night. The baseball field has been transformed into a mini golf course with 18 holes.

Lugnuts General Manager Nick Grueser says this is the first time this has happened. But baseball season is over, and the manager said turning the field into a mini golf course for a week was the best thing to do.

Lugnuts head groundskeeper Lenny Yoder crafted the design. He says it is the last time to use the current surface before a new baseball field is installed for 2017.

Golfers will be able to hit the course tonight beginning at 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. It costs $5 a round. Tickets can be purchased at the stadium box office. Golfers are encouraged to bring their own putters.

Hours for Wednesday and Thursday are: 5-10 p.m, and noon-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. A beverage and snacks cart will be available for golfers.
