It just opened in October, 2019, and has been added. Thank you!

I would have swore there was a course in Gainesville, FL that had lights, at least it did in the late 1980s.

That'd be West End I suppose.

Thank you. West End has been added to the story.

How is the technology coming for lighted golf balls. Would this be a less expensive option in conjunction with just having the greens lighted?

In Missouri, there is a small, privately-owned par 3 course called Pallo's Par 3. It isn't surprising you missed it, because it is pretty much in the middle of nowhere (outside a small town called Bonne Terre, MO). The owners have done a tremendous job over the years transforming this cow pasture into a very nice, fully lit, par 3 course open until midnight. I am, admittedly, new to golf, but I enjoy playing this course at night, especially in the summer, to stay out of the 100 degree daytime heat combined with the very high Missouri humidity. This course can easily be walked, but they also offer 2 and 4 person carts and often offer specials, like a couples night that includes 9 holes, a cart and a bottle of wine for $30.

Twin Pines Golf Course in Cedar Rapids, IA is a regulation, par 72 course that has the entire back nine lighted during the spring, summer and part of the fall. Not too hard of a course, but fun on a summer evening. Just remember to bring your Deep Woods Off

The lights turned off in 1995, according to the club website. Sorry Glenn! You must have some fond memories of night golf from back in the day.

You missed the Royal Golf Club in Bahrain. Full championship course designed by Colin Montgomerie--and both the back nine and the 9-hole par-3 course are entirely lit.

I didn't dig too deep for every international course that offers night golf, but I have added to the story. Thank you!

I was playing three par golf under the lights over forty five years ago, long before those fake "glory" days of tigger woods. Some of us were inspired by the best ever, Jack Nicklaus.

Mill Creek metro parks in Youngstown, Ohio has a nice 18 hole lighted par 3 course. Currently there are limited nights for night play, but still fun for kids and beginners. The metro parks also has 36 holes of championship golf designed by Donald Ross (1928) in Boardman, Ohio. That is a great area for golf, although not widely known. Plenty of hotels and beautiful courses within 45 minutes.

Designed in 1963 by the well known female amateur golfer, Joanne Carner, Firefly in Seekonk, Massachusetts was lighted for years. Its still open but not sure if night golf is still an option.

Firefly closed in 2018 for construction work due to surrounding redevelopment, and it's phone number is disconnected in 2019, but the website is still live. Seems to be in transition at the moment.
