how are glow rounds/courses set up ..?

im thinking of doing a "glow saturday night" or something to that effect at my home course ...all the other courses in the area closed at dark so i think it will be good for the locals ...i have never really been to a course where a glow tourney or course was set up ...i wondered do you guys put lights in the fairway at all to give a idea of direction for holes that are not short and straight..? im going to hang Led lights from each basket and on each tee ...just looking for any good info that might help me out ...thanks ..

here is the course ...

When we do glow dubs we sometimes put those LED light sticks on the poles for people who aren't used to playing glow or aren't as familiar with the course. However when we go out for casual rounds we just play it straight up and honestly I prefer it that way. I like the challenge of playing the hole based on feel and memory.

im out in the country and it gets really dark...you cant see anything ..also the course is new so not many people have played it ...just wonder if that might be too hard..? i was thinking of maybe putting a Led from a tree on the edge of each side of the fairway for a guide light so to say

Definitely don't light up the course if you can help it. Ruins night vision and really wrecks the fun, too.

I'd say just one light on each basket. Occasionally, I've seen certain pinch points that must be hit have glow sticks (or reflective nails) on the tree trunks, but it seems a bit like overkill.

Good luck, have fun, happy glowing!

I'd say just put a light on the basket, and mando's, if you have any. Putting lights on the fairway would sorta wreck the whole point.

The best glow rounds are pitch black imo. You can see more than you think.

Played a glow tourney about 2 months ago. They had 1 rope type glow stick around the top of the basket part and a glow stick hanging in the middle. It was heavily wooded and the had some glow sticks on the trails also. I was nervous going into it, but it was a ton of fun. Can't wait to do another!

Choose a night when the moon is out. Give yourself a few minutes for your eyes to adjust and do your best to be discreet while charging your discs, and you'll be fine. I always seem to get put on a card with someone who refuses to play without a flashlight for walking, and I can never see squat. Don't forget to put an LED on your bag. There's nothing worse than having to wander around for fifteen minutes while you try to find it.
