In other golf club news: An exciting and new idea, new to Castleisland at least, of night time golf.

Lunar Golf Events is a company which specialises in providing night golf events across the island of Ireland.

The company says that its concept is adaptable to social, fundraising, and corporate events incorporating anything from a one-hole nearest to pin challenge to a full nine-hole competition.

Like Never Before
“It creates a memorable atmosphere throughout the golf course and gives golfers the opportunity to experience the sport in unique and exciting circumstances like never before.”

Apparently, the greens and tee-off areas will be all lit up and the golfers will play with luminous balls and there will be on-course music.
