Topgolf Live to take over Progressive Field this fall

Progressive Field is trading baseballs for golf balls as Topgolf Live takes over the stadium Sept. 30 through Oct. 3.

CLEVELAND — Editor's note: Video in the player above was originally published from Topgolf's 2019 grand opening in Independence.

It’s the Topgolf experience – but with a big twist.

Instead of hitting golf balls at one of the company’s venues, Topgolf Live is bringing the experience to Progressive Field -- home of the Cleveland Indians -- from Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 “to create a truly unique experience where you can hit golf balls from the concourse down to the field.”

Tickets are now available HERE.

“Topgolf Live brings to life the Topgolf experience in truly immersive -- and iconic -- settings,” according to Topgolf Live’s site. “Our stadium series converts America’s most beloved venues into temporary Topgolf-like experiences. You’ll score more points by hitting the giant targets on the field while Toptracer technology accurately traces your shots and shows you instant replays on the game screen in your upper deck hitting bay.”

How does it work? Here’s how Topgolf Live explains the experience:

When it’s your turn, you’ll have five shots to accumulate as many points as possible. Your score will be determined based on distance and accuracy—the further your ball goes and the closer to the center of a target it lands, the more points you’ll earn. The fifth ball in each turn is worth double. Each player in your bay will take turns hitting five shots and after each player has completed their turn, the game is over. Your group can play as many games as time allows (each tee time lasts one hour). Typically, a bay with a maximum of six players can complete four or five games at a reasonable pace."
