Back by popular demand, the Bisons today announced that the ballpark will once again be transformed into The Links at Coca-Cola Field from Friday, September 15 through Sunday, September 17. The nine-hole, par-27 course provides golfers with a truly unique and challenging golf experience unlike any other in Western New York.

The Links at Coca-Cola Field allows golfers will take their swings from eight tee boxes located around the ballpark, including from home plate and the right field Bully Hill Party Deck. This year's updated course design includes an additional club level shot (now three) as well as different pin placements from last year's course. The course also includes a one-hole putting challenge in the Bisons indoor batting cages.
Each golf hole will continue to feature unique themes, such as having to deal with extra crowd noise or unfavorable weather conditions. The new 'Double Down' hole will also dare golfers to bet on themselves as good shots will be scored better (pars scored as a birdies, birdies marked down as aces), but errant shots will be penalized more (bogeys become double bogeys, doubles become triples)! The team has also remade it's the Putting Hole #8 to the 'Disco Ball' hole, where golfers will hit neon golf balls through a green only lit by disco lights.
The Bisons have also expanded its use of mulligans, which can be purchased before the round for a second chance at any hole (except for the all-new 'Double-Down' hole). Each mulligan will cost a $5 donation to the Buffalo Bisons Charitable Foundation with a maximum of two per golfer.
Top scores from the weekend will also be displayed on the BisonsHD Scoreboard while the best golfers from each of the four sessions of tee times will win fantastic prizes.

How It Works
Five greens will be mowed and cut into the Coca-Cola Field outfield for golfers to take aim at (see course map attached). Golfers will be awarded a Birdie-2, Par-3 or Bogey-4 based on where their tee shots land in relation to the hole (no putting other than the Putting Challenge in the batting cages). Distances of the holes will range from 65-135 yards and golfers must bring their own course-appropriate golf clubs (all golf balls will be provided by OnCore and a putter will be provided for putting challenge).
Golfers can park in the Bisons Exchange St. parking lot and enter The Links at Coca-Cola Field in the centerfield pavilion area. The opening hole tee shot will be taken from the centerfield berm area.
