        Glow disc golf at Pier Park.

        Park is open until midnight.

        Good fun in the Wintertime!

          They had glow at hornings when we were there for chick flick
          but I had never played, and didn't have any glow discs or lights

          I have been reading the glow thread on DGCR and that's what got me thinking about it.

          So in the last couple of weeks I bought a CFR glow sidewinder from the fall fling, and also picked up a glow Z buzzzz.

          Most of my discs are CH or Z plastic so I could use lights on them.

          What's it like to play in the woods in the dark (could we play at Shelton springs)?

            Contact MCDG. I believe that the Course, and all of the City parks, close at dusk. I used to live across the street from City of Shelton's Callanan Park. The police would frequent the park at night and remove people from there. And, any "guerrilla" glow golf, organized or not, may be reflected poorly on the Club and the Course.

              Use red LEDs and red flashlights so you don't blind everyone. Keeping your night vision really helps. Maybe it doesn't matter in the cities because there is so much light pollution anyway, but where I am, I don't want to see anything except red lights. I even prefer red glow sticks be used. It's something I learned on submarines when I was standing lookout watches. So, in the interest of national defense, use red lights.

                This was more of a "type of terrain/course" question
                but that would need addressed before playing

                      And for the glow plastics, hit up ebay for a scorpion flashlight...about 20 bucks and the UV backlights get Z glow plastic to a hot glow right away.

                        I tossed the new glow discs in the back yard last night
                        and did notice the ch plastic was better than the z plastic when using my led flashlight to charge them
                        will one of the "uv lights" work better?
                        (Is that the same as a "black light"?)

                          Yes it is...you shouldn't need to put out more than say 20 bucks on ebay for a uv, and they take any glow plastic to its hot spot right away. For the newer plastics I've found I need to recharge more often than my vintage Photon plastic, but they are what you want if you're thinking of playing glow. I used lights for a few seasons, but tired of hitting something and seeing the lights flutter to the ground without my disc, so I went all glow plastic. I got lucky, Photon was still out there, and some might be still, but prices reflect its superiority and demand. I would also suggest using red lights to navigate the course, every time one of the group turns on white light, especially the newer high powered less flashlights you'll have to get used to the dark again. It's surprising how little white light really screws up your night vision. Hell we don't even waste time lighting baskets anymore, we know where they are. Pull the trigger on a uv scorpion flashlight, you won't be disappointed. And most important...enjoy. I love glo, I really slow things down and work on mechanics and it has helped my daylight delivery. Remember, if you can't see it...it doesn't exist.

                              Just got back a glow roc (didn't realize it was glow, until I thought about)
                              From my brother, he's just starting also, hey give me back that roc I think its a glow!

                              I bought a uv 1 led light from cabelas for charging glow bait
                              I will have to find a bigger scorpion light later

                              Played with it in the back yard pretty cool

                              Now that im switching to magic putters I have an excuse to get a super glow
