Fore Real

Here's a golf challenge: We triple dog dare you that you can't land on the green in the dark. Sounds all Mission Impossible, right? Well, when the balls are fluorescent like they will be during the Night Flight Golf event at Palo Verde Golf Course, then it’s, like, mission possible.

Starting at sundown, pick up a glow necklace and illuminated golf balls and compete against other duffers. The executive course is par 30 with nary a hazard, but after witnessing one woman swat herself with a nine-iron, clubhouse clerk Mike Williams suggests a daylight practice run on the driving range "since it helps to be able to hit a golf ball."
