Looking to mix up the usual birthday party? Consider a night golf party!
If you’ve never heard of night golf, prepare to be amazed. You can enjoy an awesome game of golf at night with the help of specialized golf balls, flags, and marker lights.
This is a great way to celebrate a golfer’s birthday, a graduation, or just a perfect summer day. Here are some tips for organizing an evening of night golf.
Start with light up golf balls
If you can’t see your ball, you’re not going to have a very good game of golf. This is especially true for night golf. To organize a successful night of golf, start by making sure you have light up golf balls so your players can see their incredible hits.
But before you buy them, make sure you know what type of light up ball is best for the event you’re organizing. You might want to get LED golf balls that only light up for 30 seconds after being hit. These balls are perfect for short events, like a hole-in-one tournament or hitting on a driving range, and they last for 30 to 40 hours of use, making them well worth the price.
If you’re planning a game of mini-golf or round of nine holes, you’ll want the timer-less golf balls. These balls are activated by a strong light, such as the one from your cell phone, and they’re turned off the same way. Once activated, these balls stay lit for your entire event, making it easy for players to find their balls. There is even a golf ball that allows you to alternate its glow between seven different colors. What more could you want for a round of night golf?
Next, mark your course
Light up golf balls are a great start, but if your players don’t know where to aim, you’re in for some trouble. This problem is easily solved by the addition of LED yardage markers, LED flag sticks, and marker lights. These lights create a colorful course for your golfers.
LED yardage markers are the perfect way to light the path for your players if you’re on a golf course. You’ll want to place two on either side of the course every 25-30 feet. Since golf course length is increasing, you definitely want to make sure your players are able to view the entirety of the course. With these markers, your golfers will easily be able to see where to aim and they’ll feel like they’re golfing on a cool and different sort of course.
LED flag sticks help players know exactly where they are aiming when they’ve reached the final hole and are perfect for any type of night golf event. At 6.5 feet long, they are regulation size and include over 30 LED lights, which can light up in three ways: steady on, fast blink, and slow blink. Set it to your golfers’ preferences and watch them score.
Glow marker lights are perfect for anywhere you’d still like to light up, like along walkways or around the snack table. The lights’ batteries are rechargeable and last four to six hours. These simple lights are the perfect touch to complete your course.
Lastly, have fun
You now have everything you need for a great night golf event, and these tips will make it a lot easier to do just that. After you’ve done all the work, don’t forget to grab a light-up ball yourself and get out there on the course.
