Beat the Heat with Night Flight Golf

Jul 5, 2009

There is no question that Phoenix is full of weirdness. Only the city that brought you rivers without water and those unexplained lights in the sky could dream up an idea as weird as "Night Flight Golf." Now, the program returns for 2011 with new dates!

Night Flight Golf is a program from the City of Phoenix that allows golfers to beat the heat by golfing at night. Yes, you read that right: you can play golf in the dark this summer at the City of Phoenix's Palo Verde 9-hole golf course.

Golfing at night is not as impossible as it may seem. Glow necklaces and fluorescent balls will help with visibility, and flashlights will be used to signal other parties when the course is clear. Golf carts will not be allowed for safety reasons.

On the plus side, you won't get sunburned by playing at night. On the downside, you cannot blame your score on the sun being in your eyes.

Night Flight Golf dates for 2011 are:
  • Saturday, June 18th - 7:00 PM
  • Friday, July 15th - 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, August 13th - 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, September 10th - 6:60 PM
Golfers who are interested in teeing off at night can make a reservation with the Palo Verde golf course by calling (602) 249-9930 or by visiting https://www.phoenix.gov/parks/golf.
