Take a shine to Glow Golf at Meadow Park Golf Course

May 10, 2018

New technology sparks renewed interest in classic competition
 

If ordinary golf seems a little tame, Meadow Park Golf Course is ready to tweak your game.

The Metro Parks Tacoma course at 7108 Lakewood Drive W. plans to introduce nighttime, glow-in-the-dark golf on Friday nights beginning June 8. While some courses have hosted single Glow Golf events, Meadow Park is running a four-week trial to see how the idea fares in Tacoma.

“Glow Golf is a social and fun new take on the game of golf,” said Chris Goodman, Meadow Park manager. “Get your friends together and glow golfing!”

Players use glowing golf balls, with light-emitting diodes inside providing the energy. The boundaries of each fairway on Meadow Park’s Williams Nine course will be outlined with flickering lights; each hole will be marked with a light stick instead of a flag. Players will wear glow necklaces, but other than that the course will be dark. So the terrain, and its risks, won’t be visible.

As an added incentive, a bucket of balls for practice at Meadow Parks’ newly upgraded driving range is included in the Glow Golf registration fee. So are a pair of drink tickets for redemption at Foley’s Sports Bar and Grill, also located at Meadow Park. And, if you don’t have clubs, you can rent a set for the night.

“It’s not a shot in the dark that you’ll have fun playing glow golf,” said Jackson Conn, a rookie golfer.
