A hybrid soccer golf game called FootGolf, zombie-infested 5K races, concerts and more are coming to the former Calverton Links golf course, which abruptly closed Oct. 30, 2013, and has only been used for special events ever since.

Now under new leadership, the facility has been re-dubbed Long Island Sports Park and features a nine-hole FootGolf course, recently refurbished mini-golf course and catering hall.

It opens to the public this Saturday.
