Fed up with the dark, cold winter days stopping you from playing golf? Could the solution to your problem be NightGolf?
You will be entranced by fairways that replicate runways and greens encircled with lights and pin placements marked by illuminated flags. You will tee off from illuminated tees using special golf balls containing LED lights that explode with colour when you hit them, enabling you to track the whole flight of your ball through the air, as if you’re watching a shooting star. All this combines to ensure a visually stunning golfing experience.
