On Wednesday last week we returned to Dukes Meadows, a fantastic 9 hole par 3 course close to central London. Bonfire Night is a great night for running a night golf event and there were over 500 people attending a firework display while golfers played 6 holes of Night Golf.
There was also a barbecue laid on, kids activities and a DJ. It really was a night for the whole family, not just golfers!
The Night Golf event itself was run by our Event Manager for the South, Tracey Boyes and was a great success.
Next year, bonfire night is on a Thursday so we are expecting the Thursday and the Friday to book up quickly so contact us as soon as you can if you are looking for either of those dates.
We were delighted to receive a call from the County Officer for England Golf back in early October asking about running a couple of events. England Golf has an ambitious strategic plan to increase participation in golf over the next few years and part of that strategy is introducing younger people to the sport. What helps in getting those people introduced to the game is through different (and, crucially in our view, shorter) formats of the game.
Apart from seeing it as an opportunity to be involved with an organisation committed to growing the game we love, it was also a great way for us to introduce Night Golf to a whole new audience. Some of the students had not played golf before, let alone played in the dark!
The events were held at Stone Golf Club on October 28th and Newcastle-under-Lyme Golf Club on October 30th. We have to say a big thank you to Gareth Shaw and Iain Lancaster of England Golf, Arron from Keele University and all the students for making the nights memorable. Thanks also to Phil from Midlands Golfer Magazine for attending and playing 6 holes with us on the Thursday.
We look forward to working with them all again. You can get more information on the work of England Golf on their website www.englandgolf.org

We’ve been overwhelmed recently by the positive feedback we have been receiving. We’ve had some testing times with investment in new golf balls that didn’t turn out as we hoped but the clubs and members have continued to enjoy our events. We are constantly looking at ways of improving our service and the products we use, sometimes it doesn’t work out.
We will continue to look at improvements and we welcome suggestions from anyone so please feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us via twitter (@nightgolfuk) or Facebook (The Night Golf Company).
Thanks to everyone who has played in our recent events and we hope to see you again next year!

As we are returning to Fulwell Golf Club in Middlesex next Friday, we thought we’d share some of the photos from our last visit.
This was a challenging event for a couple of reasons. Firstly, there were 52 players doing a shotgun start over 5 holes! We thought this had disaster written all over it if we’re honest. Not only that, they wanted a par 3 over water. Not something we’re keen on.
I’m glad to say we we’re proved wrong. No, it wasn’t the fastest 5 holes ever but there was beer and wine to keep people warm and plenty of banter on the tees. We even managed to lose a total of about 4-5 balls to the lake. They are obviously good players at this course.
Everyone enjoyed themselves, the bar was full afterwards and the club laid on food for everyone. The night was a success for the club and we are looking forward to returning next Friday.
