Come and have a shot in the dark

Parley Golf Centre is inviting golfers to have a shot in the dark by playing in a tournament at night on the new course.

The ‘glow golf’ includes fairway lights, illuminated balls and glowing greens – and takes place on Friday November 3.

Six of the course’s holes will be in play for the event that promises to be a fun evening’s entertainment.

Teams of three are invited to take part and there will be food available afterwards.

The centre – opposite Bournemouth Airport – recently opened a new course and practice area following £250,000 investment.

Daryl Dampney, manager of the centre, said: “Night golf is a lot of fun and something a bit unusual.

“It’s played over six holes and the fairways, greens and pins are lit up with glow-sticks.

“We use special golf balls that flash when they are hit, allowing players to see their shot in the dark.

“We aim to be a golf centre that embraces innovation and night golf is a great example of that.

“We’ve done it several times before and it’s always popular.

“Some golfers prefer playing at night because they say they can find lost balls more easily.”
