Parley Golf Centre is inviting golfers to have a shot in the dark by playing in a tournament after the sun goes down.

A previous night golf event in the autumn proved so popular that it is being held again.

Six of the course’s holes will be in play for the event that promises to be a fun evening’s entertainment.

Daryl Dampney, manager of the centre, which is opposite Bournemouth Airport, said: “Night golf is a lot of fun and something a bit unusual.

“It’s played over six holes and the fairways, greens and pins are lit up with glow-sticks.

“We use special golf balls that have an insert in them which lights up, allowing players to see their shot in the dark.

“We aim to be a golf centre that embraces innovation and night golf is a great example of that.

“Some golfers prefer playing at night because they say they can find lost balls more easily.”

The event takes place on 18 February from 6.30pm – teams of four are invited to enter.
