Question Lit Courses for night golf?

So... When I first started playing disc golf I heard a rumor that cedar hill (lester lorch) in texas had one course that was lit up for night golf and the other is a normal course...

Now that I know that is not the case it has made me curious... Is there any lit courses across the US somewhere? If so, how well was the idea pulled off and is it a course you now frequent?

I played parts of Sunset Park in Las Vegas at night once, it was lit well enough by the ball field lights to be mostly playable, and as long as you paid a little attention to your throw the lights made it real easy to find them. I've never played one that was specifically lit for disc golf, that would be a lot of fun, I love playing at night.

Clyde Fant in Shreveport, LA and Chestnut Grove at Highbridge, WI are two of them.

Chestbut Grove is apparently not been added to the site yet and Clyde Fant doesn't sound like it would warrant a deive from DFW for me...

Thanks for the info though.

i thought about a buisness idea where i would buy 9 portable baskets and a trailor( or small pull behind u-haul) and go to a lighted 3 par ball golf course an see if the would let me set up one night a week and take a percentage for setting up and overseeing it for them and all they would have to do is sit back collect the money.

my pitch would be let me take over the slowest night of the week and if you make more money with dg give me the bid plus i would explain to them that houston has no lighted courses so we would own the freaking market and with the heat in the summer alot of people dont wanna play in the sun and would love a place they could play at night safely and legally.

i dont know how it would fair in the long wrong but with some advertising at the local parks im sure it would a hit for a short while at least .

Chestnut is out here, and it's a fun course to play if you're staying at Highbridge playing the championship courses--in other words, not worth a drive to solely play Chestnut!

I know the Willits KOA course in Nor-Cal has solar lights on several of the baskets.
Horning's Hideout near portland has an 18 hole course with the same.
Near LA, a course in Cerritos has a 9 hole course in a city park that has a lit path.

Never played any of them at night... so I can't say too much about how good or bad they are.

Clyde Fant is not bad but you are right that it is not really wrth a lng trip just to play there. the lights are cool though.
