There was no football flying through the air Thursday inside Beaver Stadium. Instead, it was a steady stream of golf balls making their way down onto the historic field as Topgolf Live Stadium Tour visited State College.
The event runs inside the stadium through Sunday, giving Nittany Lions fans a chance to take some swings from the stands down onto targets on the field.

Beaver Stadium is just one stop on a series that Topgolf has planned, already visiting some of the most famous venues in the country prior to this one such as Dodger Stadium, T-Mobile Park, and several more.
Mark Rykojc, Product Manager of Topgolf Live Stadium Tour, says the game has been slight alterations to the game that many are used to at other venues across the country.
“The gaming experience is a little bit different, we have our own customized game that we have for the stadium tour where guests can hit shots that are traced directly and get points for the different targets that are painted on the field,” he said.
Players have the opportunity to experience the game with a one-of-a-kind experience. The stadium setup allows visitors a chance to hit golf balls on targets that are placed on the field as the traditional game is played. Targets are set between 60 and 140 yards, giving space between where the tee box stands.
All skill levels are welcome to come and play at the stadium as the game’s top tracer technology helps to trace the flight path of the balls that are hit similar to the original game.
Tee times are still available. Reservations must be made and are available in one-hour increments for up to six players at a time in each bay.
Pricing for the Topgolf event: $10 spectator hours, $40 Penn State Student hours, $80 for non-peak hours, $90 for peak hours, and $185 for Unrivaled Experience Package. Parking prices is included in the Topgolf Live Stadium tour pricing.
Food and beverages will be provided to players inside the Beaver Stadium Mount Nittany Club. Any golf clubs or golf balls brought from outside of the venue will not be allowed inside. Golf clubs and balls will be provided to all players.
For those looking for a more enhanced experience the Unrivaled Experience Package allows players to receive an exclusive stadium tour, a complimentary Penn State White course greens fee with the value of $39, two drink tickets, a limited edition Topgolf Live hat, and last a complimentary lifetime membership with a $10 game voucher at any Topgolf venue in the country, except Topgolf Las Vegas.
