In steps, the fun but novelty golf balls glow in the dark night. These balls are not a random novelty. An entire night golf industry has been built around it. The balls are professionally manufactured with the aim of allowing you to play in the most realistic way possible. So, thanks to these balls, you and your friends can finish those last few rounds of golf while you finish your beers and wrap up those business conversations.
As I mentioned earlier, an entire night golf industry has been created over the years. There are complete packages you can purchase to set up your course for night golf. One package consists of materials to make the flagpoles glow in the dark, lighting to wrap around the golf carts so everyone can see each other, and of course, the glow-in-the-dark balls. These packs are great to use for golf tournaments. Golf tournaments are obviously a great way for businesses to get out and have fun, but imagine how much more fun everyone would have if the tournament was held at night.
Are you wondering exactly how a glow-in-the-dark golf ball works? It’s quite simple actually. Manufacturers have made a ball with special materials that allow it to be transparent and have a slot to insert a small glow stick into the golf ball. The balls feature a standard dimple pattern and, for all intensive purposes, hit just like a standard golf ball. Of course you wouldn’t play a PGA tournament in them, but for fun rounds of golf or practicing alone after hours, they’re perfect!
The benefit of this design where you put a small glow stick inside to get the glow effect is that you can play night golf anytime you want. Simply replace the small glow stick with a new one. These glow sticks are very cheap, around 10-20 cents each. And each glow stick lasts about 6 hours. All of this sounds pretty cheap and easy to enjoy a night of golf, right? Well, it really is! So, what are you waiting for; go out and play golf at night.
