LAKEWOOD, NJ - Where the Home Run meets the Hole-In-One.
FirstEnergy Park is being turned into a golf haven after the BlueClaws game on Sunday, July 16th. Fans that sign up to participate in the first TBC at FirstEnergy Park will be able to shoot at nine different holes, set up around the field, as part of a competition after the 1:05 pm game.
Each player will get to take three shots at each of the nine holes. There will be a point system in place with players earning points (closer to the pin means more points) depending on how close their shots are to each hole location. The highest score (most points) will win a trophy with additional prizes for the top five finishers.
"We always try to provide one-of-a-kind experiences and I think this unquestionably fits the bill," said BlueClaws General Manager Chris Tafrow. "Our TBC at FirstEnergy Park is going to be a fun competition for golfers of all ages and ability levels, and with the backdrop of a BlueClaws game at FirstEnergy Park, what could be better?"
All golfers will also receive a BlueClaws Golf Towel and a BlueClaws Ball Marker as commemorative pieces from this special event.
Further, each participating player will enjoy a two-hour all-you-can-eat buffet in the Investors Bank Third Base BlueClaws Picnic Area that runs from 12 pm until 2 pm (first pitch of the game is at 1:05 pm).
Registration - Registration and participation for the event is just $50 (includes golf, towel, ball marker, game ticket, and picnic). Additional picnic tickets (for non-participating friends and family members) are available for $26.95 for adults or $18.95 for juniors.
To sign up, call John O'Connor at 732-901-7000 ext 196 or click here to sign up online.

The nine holes will be set up all around the outfield at FirstEnergy Park, with different tee-box locations throughout the field and concourse. The first few tee box areas will be on the field with additional tee boxes around the outfield concourse.
The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore's top stop for affordable, family entertainment. They have led the South Atlantic League and New Jersey in attendance in each year of existence and this year will reach the 7-million fan plateau.
