It’s amazing how golf has changed in tune with this modern World. Lightweight clubs and bags , special clothing ,GPS devices and my own favourite , the electric trolley have all become commonplace . But what about night time golf ? Read the article below that I saw recently proving that golf really can be played anytime of day !.
“Golfers in Abu Dhabi are enjoying the opportunity to play golf under the night stars at one of the world’s best courses, as Abu Dhabi Golf Club, managed by Troon Golf and host of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championships, recently launched Night Golf at its award-winning 27-hole venue. With state-of-the-art lighting facilities integrated into the course’s lush surroundings, Abu Dhabi Golf Club now provides flawless playing conditions with or without natural light. Players are taking full advantage of a truly unique golfing experience at one of the world’s most desirable golfing destinations.
With demand and interest in golf continuing to grow in the region, the introduction of night golf is an inherent response by the capital’s leading club to meet the increased demand by providing enjoyable year-round golf regardless of busy work schedules and the hectic pace of modern life in Abu Dhabi,” said Ken Kosak, General Manager, Abu Dhabi Golf Club.
Abu Dhabi Golf Club has led the sport’s rapid development in the region in recent years, as it continues its ongoing commitment to excellence throughout the facility, highlighted by the completion of major renovations to its iconic Falcon clubhouse earlier this year. The informal nature of Night Golf will supplement a wide variety of clothing outlets and grandeur restaurants currently available at the venue, completing an unrivalled leisure experience at Abu Dhabi Golf Club.”
“Whether you’re a serious amateur wanting to regularly play on a championship course or you’re simply after a social 9 holes with friends after work, we have now created new opportunities to play 7 nights a week offering great value for money and increased convenience for players, ” adds Kosak. “Moreover the launch in the height of the summer means golfers can opt to play in the cooler evenings.”
It may be a while before we see night golf in the UK but I can’t wait to try it !!
