In areas that are scorchingly hot, evening golf is not that uncommon. But even if you have balmy breezes year round, hosting a night chamber golf event can be a lot of fun. If it’s something you’d like to try, here’s what you need.
Tips for a Night Chamber Golf Event
Nighttime golf is not about playing golf at night under the lights. Sure, there are lights involved, obviously, but there’s also a lot of really fun aspects to it like:
- Glow-in-the-dark or LED-lighted golf balls
- Golf carts adorned with Christmas lights
- Luminescent flags
- LED flashing necklaces
- LED cup rings
- Glow-in-the-dark yardage markers
- Glow sticks
But why should the fun stop at the 18th hole? There’s also all sorts of light-up barware including glowing Mason jars, yard glasses (if you’ve ever been to Vegas, you’ve seen these), even LED shot glasses on necklaces. Don’t forget your LED light-up ice cubes, which come in a rainbow of colors.
Since safety is always a concern, picking up a few light-up batons (like light sabers, but shorter) can help anyone feel like grounds crew at an airport.
Night golf is a completely different game from its daytime counterpart. It’s a lot less serious and a lot zanier. It evens the playing field because vision is limited and it will likely attract people who might normally shy away from your daytime event.
You can combine it with a mixed theme such as a haunted golf tournament around Halloween or a Holiday theme around the winter holidays, weather permitting. You could also do a fun spring golf game with glow-in-the-dark eggs along the way with special challenges for the golfers.
Hosting a night chamber golf event can place a new twist on something you’ve done often. It can also help differentiate your event if your community seems to be hosting a lot of golf tournaments.
You don’t have to buy all of the things included here. These are all just options to bring a little humor to your event.
