If we had to pick two things that would keep even an avid linksman off the courses this time of year, they would be the oppressive heat and the time commitment. Even in nice weather it can be tough to set aside a couple hours to hit a ball towards a hole a bunch of times. And you really have to love golf to want to play in heat as oppressive as Stalin.
If you’re looking to get your golf fix without sweating through your polo, then you might be interested in Night Flight Golf on Friday, August 3, at Palo Verde Golf Course, 6215 North 15th Avenue. $25 per person buys you a tee-time for the nine hole scramble plus light-up necklaces and golf balls so that you can actually see what you’re doing.
