Lots of people hang glow sticks on them. Ive also heard of people aiming flashlights from the top of them.

I love night DG. I use LEDs with the watch batteries. I also have a few nighttime fishing bobber LEDs. The baskets we play on are lit up by park lights for the most part.

I'm a bit nervous about the idea of playing night time dg - which won't happen until May with my group at Horning's Hideout in North Plains, Oregon.

I have a large LED flashlight that I put on top of the basket faceing down. It is a little hard to throw in the dark though. This is in Brenham ,TX at 10:30 at night. I am still suprised the cops didn't stop when they drove by.

I just want to say, I don't know if is the chains or what, by these baskets at this course are some of the best catching baskets I have ever seen.

Guess I'm one of the lucky few, but we have a course about 6 miles away that has lights, and during the summer is open until 10-11pm. It's on a par 3 golf course/driving range/putt-putt course. You utilize the fairways that the ball golfers use, and then the basket is tucked away into the woods each hole away from the ball golf hole. There are a few areas on the course where even the lights don't get to very well, but overall it's bright enough to play. It's only 9 holes, but it is a lot of fun. I do have a glow sidewinder, and if you use a good flashlight, it holds it's "charge" for a good 2 hours.

One thing to remember about the Nite-Ize attachment is that because you have to punch a hole in the disc to install it, you won't be able to use the disc in an "official" PDGA tournament. It's a good idea, and I'm sure it works really well, but before you buy it, be aware that it's going to be a permanent attachment.
