The only issue with those beacon glow sticks is their expense (3.49 for 4). I was looking the party supplies yesterday (today is my son's first Birthday) and I found a pack of 12 glow bracelets for $3, which is a lot cheaper 9and they seem to work just as well).
I really like the beacons though they are small and light.
I have also used the led and battery method. One 3v battery will effectively light up 2 LEDs. The LEDs are cheap but the batteries are expensive comparatively.

However, the glow sticks (my favorite) are pretty cheap from wal-mart. Take a look in the fishing department I think they are called beacon bobbers or something like that.
I tape the glow stick to the middle of the underside of the disc.
Using either method we have lost 0 discs.
The harder issue is lighting the baskets up. We use the necklaces and string them parallel to the pole (vertically). However, if I was to play a lot of glow golf I would use those solar landscaping lights and attach them to the top of the basket. The one I use at home seems to light up my practice basket well enough to see my chain link but not so well I feel blinded.
I usually use just one disc, (teebird) namely because it is the disc I can pull almost any shot off with. I also don't have a clear putter (the glow necklaces were strong enough to light up pro plastic).
Hope all is well in Pendleton.
I realy liked the solar light idea a wanted them to use thoes for our glow round here last weekend. the glow sticks work well but if you are running a weekly glow event this could get expensive quick.
