Near Columbia, SC is a lighted course. A 9-hole course on a par-3 ball golf course, pay-to-play. Almost nobody goes there.

In the daylight, there are better, free options.

During daylight savings, there's daylight until 8:00 or 9:00, so who needs lights? After daylight savings, it's COLD at night. It seemed like a good idea when I first heard about it, but in practice it doesn't work.

For a disc-golf-only course to have lights, add another huge cost and utility bill. And, it couldn't be a wooded course. And, while being open, it would also have to be a very good course to entice players during the daylight....which means long, and lots of land, and thus lots more money.

$50 a month would not be too much to pay for such a course or disc golf country club.....but no one's going to build one if they can only collect $50 a month.
