Fright Night Classic

My friends, Steve and Christy:

Playing golf in the dark with glow-in-the-dark golf balls was an absolute blast! If you have never done it and you get the opportunity, DO IT. I tried to get some pictures of the course after it got dark but nothing showed up very well. There were glow sticks on the tee boxes and around the greens, on the flag stick and in the holes. There were some more at the 150 yard markers and red ones at the 100 yard markers. We played nine holes but not all in sequential order, in a four man scramble format. Everyone hits from the tee box and then we all hit from the best tee shot. We continue doing this until the ball is in the hole. We came in one over par. We were in fourth place, (if they had fourth place.) They only gave prizes to third place. But, the amazing thing is, none of us lost a ball! Steve tried hard three times, but luckily the balls float. And they can be seen through very thick grass. Oh, and Steve can climb a cyclone fence with ease. It was a beautiful night with tons of stars in the sky. The weather couldn't have been much better. This was the first year the golf course has done this type of event. I hope they do it again. We'll be there for sure the next time they have it.

I agree. It was a blast. I think I golf better in the dark and definitly have a better sense of distance at night. Can't wait to do something like that again.
