Minor League Stadium Becomes Temporary Golf Course

Brock Fritz Headshot

The canceled minor league season has led a baseball stadium in Mississippi to transform into a modified golf course.

MGM Park, the home of the Biloxi Shuckers, has transitioned into a nine-hole chipping course to help earn revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic that kept the Shuckers off the field all season.

“Golf is a perfect way to enjoy the outdoors, practice safe social distancing and enjoy a summer day on the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” Shuckers general manager Hunter Reed said in a team press release. “We wanted to offer something unique with this crossover between baseball and golf that people can’t get anywhere else and allow our community to enjoy this great facility while we await Minor League Baseball’s return.”
