Night Golf

Find between 8-10 mid to low irons (depending on how many kids, preferably 1 per team). Divide the youth up into teams of 2 or 3. For example’s sake, let’s say we have 6 teams of 3. Get 6 tennis balls and 6 glow sticks. Crack the glow sticks so they glow ( You know what I’m talking about with glow sticks right? Those 4 inch long tubes filled with green liquid that glows when you bend them in half). Cut the glow sticks in half and poor the contents all over the tennis balls. One leader with a flashlight stands 40 to 50 yards away holding a flashlight pointed down. The object of the game is to get the ball within the perimiter of the light in the fewest shots. Find a large dark area and play scramble format golf. Lowest score wins. Whenever everyone finishes a hole the person with the flashlight moves somewhere else. The darker the better. The tennis balls will glow for a good hour so its almost impossible to lose a ball. Areas with lots of obstuction are best. Tennis balls hit with golf clubs don’t break windows so we play around the outside of our youth center. This works best (or to my knowlege has only been tried) with 7th grade and up boys who enjoy general insanity.
