Eden Park has hosted some historic sporting moments in New Zealand history in the past but tomorrow it will make its own history with the staging of a unique golf event.

The iconic Auckland stadium has seen its pitch, usually reserved for rugby, league or cricket, transformed into a nine-hole course that the general public can play in the inaugural G9 event.

However, golfers won't have to trek around the course all day  - instead they'll have a 90 minute time slot to tee off from numerous spots around the stadium onto the turf, with scores tallied based on how close each ball gets to the hole.

Players are able to bring their own clubs, however they will be restricted to only an 8-iron-, 9-iron, wedge and putter.

The event runs from tomorrow until November 8.
