Red Sox Foundation Partners With Deutsche Bank Championship to Bring Golf to Fenway Park

Fenway Park has already been turned into a hockey rink and a soccer pitch.

Now it’s going to become a golf course.

Thanks to the "Chipping in for the Red Sox Foundation" promotion, three Grand Prize raffle winners will get the chance to join Red Sox Hall of Famer Jim Rice at home plate at Fenway to try and hit a golf shot to a one-foot target in the outfield. If anyone hits the target, the Deutsche Bank Championship will make a $50,000 donation to the Red Sox Foundation in the winner’s name.

"The Red Sox Foundation is excited to partner with the Deutsche Bank Championship in bringing this unique golf moment to Fenway Park," said Foundation executive director Meg Vaillancourt. "A $50,000 donation would go a long way to supporting our team charity’s programs that serve at risk children and our community’s wounded veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with traumatic brain injuries and combat stress disorders."

Raffle tickets are available Thursday, Aug. 26 for $25. Massachusetts residents 18 years and older may purchase tickets here.
