Play until FORE in the morning: The LED golf balls that light up when they are hit and stay lit for eight minutes while players plan their next moves

  • Balls designed by U.S. company Night Sports USA which also produce light-up tees and flags
  • The company insists they play exactly like a standard golf ball except they float in water so can be retrieved

tie a string on the ball, hit it gentle then it will be always be found.

Next thing go to download a cyber golf on your computer.

This means the ball is suitable only for night golf. And if ball enter water further away, how are we to retrieve it, never mind if we can still see it floating. In the daytime, if it gets lost, it means it will not be found (but some lucky people might).  Very Happy

I ahve seen such ball in the past in Europe. The woman was finishing her round, autumn time 5-6 pm, it is getting dark. So perfectly fit.
Not much dark tiime golf in Singapore so i supposed that is why people dont understand.
In continental countries, it can be useful.
in the US some clubs organizes night golf, not night golf like in MBGC. Less lights on the course. like in the articles
