Some areas have glo tourneys. The Charlotte, NC club does one a month at Hornet's Nest. This months tourney is actually tomorrow night around 6:30. They hang a glow stick in the sweet spot!

Basket Lights?

Ok, another question. How do you see the baskets? Do the courses provide lights or is there a product(s) that you can put on the pole? Thanks

I know where the baskets are, but sometimes someone can hold a flashlite on the basket. Some people put leds or glow sticks on the baskets which helps. There are some baskets with lights on them, but I've only seen pictures of them. They look sweet, but I'm sure they are expensive and need power.

These glow sticks work pretty good for hanging on the chains.

These batteries and lights work great for taping on the bottom of your disc.
Use clear duct tape for it.

I use an Axe disc that has light up blue LEDs built in. It's pretty sweet, and you don't have to go through the hassle of taping anything to the disc or changing the weight of the disc.

I play every week in the late fall and winter (I live in San Diego) and we have tried everything from glow discs, glow sticks, Blackjax light up discs, and finally we have all settled on LED's. I buy an LED and a battery from Radioshack. Put the two prongs on +/- side of the battery and tape it on to the disc. Duct or electrical tape works well. Then just remove it after the round. I have found that this small light impacts the flight of the disc far less than one of the light pods or a glow stick plus they are extremely bright. You can use a light Pod or a Flashlight to mark the holes, but if you are playing on your home course you should know where the baskets and trees are unless you have rotating baskets like we do. Playing during a full moon is another great time.

Some pros are; no lines at tee boxes, free rein of the course, and excuses for poor scores

Some cons; You use one disc for most of your throws, bums may throw your discs back after a good drive or steal them, loss of discs, injury from stepping in a hole, Getting shot at with air soft guns and being propositioned for anonymous anal sex (Only play in groups of three or more to avoid propositions and confusion)

Probably too much information about the weirdness of Morley field, but night golf is a lot of fun and if you live in a more temperate area, a great option to play on week nights.

You can buy LED Lights that you tape to the top of your disc, seems to be the best way.
