Campus Recreation to host first-ever ‘Glow Golf Tournament’

Ohio University Campus Recreation will be holding its first-ever “Glow Golf Tournament” on Saturday, Sept. 26, on the University’s golf course. 

“Glow golf” is played at night with glow-in-the-dark balls made from clear golf balls containing miniature glow sticks. The game is played on the normal nine holes, but the holes will be lit by various LED markers, and glow sticks will mark tee areas, fairways and greens.

“During my countless hours of course management, I sometimes find myself on the course at dark, and words can’t describe how peaceful and tranquil a golf course can be at that time,” said Travis Post, coordinator of OHIO’s Golf and Tennis Center. “Campus Recreation is excited to share this same experience with our patrons through responsible, fun programming.”

A shotgun start will signal participants to begin playing at 9 p.m., and the event is expected to last around two hours. Ohio University students, faculty and staff as well as members of the community are all welcome to participate at a cost of $20 person.

The event is an individual, stroke play tournament with prizes given to the three participants with the best scores. First place will receive a pass for 18 holes of golf with a cart, second place will receive a pass for nine holes with a cart, and third place will receive a pass for nine holes.

There is limited space available, so those interested in participating are encouraged to pre-register at www.recshop.ohio.edu.

The Department of Campus Recreation provides quality, inclusive recreation experiences designed to positively impact the intellectual and personal development of OHIO students and the vitality of the OHIO community.
