The Weird World of After Dark Golf

BarknadoWhat happens on the golf courses after dark?

At the course near my house, night time brings a whole different clientele to the course. People walking dogs, throwing Frisbees, or jogging have been known to enter the course at night.

But other golf courses don’t shut down at night. Instead, golfers take to the course with glow-in-the-dark golf balls. Night golf is a bit harder to cope with, but some people swear by it. It takes some getting used to, and golf balls designed for night play are harder to work with. And also, in golf courses like the one near my house, night golf can be difficult because of the number of people on the course, who you have to watch out for.

Nevertheless, it has its advantages. Namely, you can avoid the long wait times of day time golf. Also, it gives you more flexibility; less wait times also mean more opportunities to retake misfires from the tee box or fairway.
