Glo-Golf is the name of the game and everyone, regardless of handicap, plays, unless there’s a thunderstorm! No one will forget last year’s event! Golfers spend the first few hours playing in daylight, break for a buffet dinner and play the rest of the game under the stars. Like, it’s going to be dark.
