In addition, there will be a number of holes set up to play nighttime golf after dinner for those that wish to go and play a few holes after dark! The edges of the fairways are lit and you play with a glowing golf ball!
This is the final effort of the Girls U 19 Drive with your Game FACE ON campaign. If you take the Share the Road Pledge you will be entered into a weekly drawing for gas cards up to $100! It is a win – win for all!
