WORSLEY Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club became one of the region’s latest clubs to host an increasingly popular Night Golf event.
The special event last month was organised by the golf team at Worsley Park and The Night Golf Company for members and guests to take part in.
Six holes were converted for the event, which saw fairways and greens marked out with lights, making it look more like an airport runway than a golf course.
Stephen Hindle, golf operations senior supervisor at Worsley Park, said: “A brave 28 players ventured out into the darkness to take on the challenge.
Whilst the limitations of the darkness and the dropping temperatures made it difficult for the competitors to bring their usual game, everyone really enjoyed a fun night and we will look to repeat this event in the members’ social calendar in the future.”
With all six holes played and scores counted, it was Salford Reds scrum half, Tommy Lee, who came home with the victory.
Mark Goodwin, director of The Night Golf Company, added: “It was great to see everyone enjoying the round. Even though many of the players know the course like the back-of-their-hands, night golf is a great way of bringing everyone down to a level playing field and make what was once familiar – suddenly feel very different. We can’t wait to come back to Worsley Park again in the near future.”
