Glow-in-the-Dark Golfing

We had a round of golf with our SLG friends yesterday.  No, not real honest-to-goodness golf, but one of those mini putt courses.  This one was a little different though.  Billed as “an 18 hole miniature golf course with a scientific twist, played under black light”.  in other words, Glow-in-the-Dark Mini Golf.

This local venture had only been up and running for a few months, so it was a new experience for us all.  Our group all qualified for Senior Tickets.  We were put into three teams of four, given a golf club and ball each, and walked through the door into the darkness.

It took a few moments for our eyes to get accustomed.  Neon colours glowed brightly in the large room.  Even various parts of our clothing glowed under the black light, including my shoelaces.  Our teams putted their way around the 18 holes with various degrees of success.  I even managed a couple of holes-in-one, don’t know how, certainly nothing to do with my style of  golfing.  I hate to brag, but Robin didn’t manage a hole-in-one!!  Neither of us were one of the top three scorers, never mind, it was a fun morning out.
