I am just wanting to get feedback from those who have done a Glow Disc before.

We are considering going to the Winton Woods Glow Disc and wondered how those events go.

Are they very crowded and is it hard to play and/or find your disc?   I have a small glow light for my disc so I have that covered.

Just would like to hear some reports.

I love glow disc golf, I would say it is easy to find your disc. I have learned to only use clear or translucent discs, I learned my lesson when my opaque buzz flipped over on it's lid in an open field and it took forever to find it.

Depending on the course, the difficulty is relative but I usually shoot a handful of strokes worse but that it because I am a bit more conservative.

Winton woods would seem to be a great course for glow golf except for the close proximity of the baskets to the next tee pads... at least it is easy to see them coming at you! I have never attended a winton woods glow event so I have no clue how many people come out.

I'm old school when it comes to glow golf. I only use glow discs and don't like using regular discs with lights attached to them. I'm originally from columbus and glow rounds there are glow disc only. Either way, glow or lighted discs are easy to find and easy to see coming at you. I love playing golf in the dark and usually shoot about the same score wise.

You should definitely go, night golf is a blast.

I think we will go. Most probably we will play conservative however since it is our first time. We know the course and it is pretty easy to find a disk off course..

We play glow alot. The best way to do a disc is to get a clear disc that you like and install a "hole in one" light set up. They light up really well. Disc n dat and sweet tees sell them.

I think it would be cool if we could find some places to play some glow/night golf. Anyone know of places other than Thompson that are good for it/allowed?

If you add lights, Glow sticks, many courses can be used. Boone, Heritage/Colerain & Harbin are the three that come to mind .

I didn't know how late harbin/heritage were open. I know harbin tends to close the gates when the sun is thinking about setting. I have a few glow lights for the disc, one disc with an led in, one of the black jax axe's, and a few of the blackjax terrapods than can be put on baskets too.

I live on the east side, maybe I'll go check out williamsburg. I know the amelia course looks alright to put some lights up to play as well.

 The best course for night golf is Oxford. The course never closes and half the course is lighted 24/7. There, you don't need to go around and put lights on the baskets because you can see most of them from the tee. Don't use blackjax products, esecially the light that you have to drill the disc to install. That's one disc you'll never be able to use in a tournament.

For $ 3-4 , this light weighs 2 grams, you tape it on and the battery lasts 15-20 hours. They are sold in the fishing section of Meyer or Wal-Mart.

If you go to doubles at Lincoln Ridge during the winter months, you'll notice everyone uses these.

The light I got was the flashlight hole-in-one, which still drills into a disc, but from the little I could find on it doesn't change the flight as much as the blackjax one may. I do however have some of the fishing glow sticks too.

Hole in ones are great . They weigh about 7=9 grams so you just buy a lighter discs plus they will no come off. May be doing a glow round in Milford once course is finished, We meet with the park/trustees people today and got the ok for tee and basket placements. They seemed interested in the glow disc golf.

you should look into seeing if you can get some of the baskets installed that have the lights built into a cage on top. i played a round in athens at OU's little course, and they have them there....really cool for night golf.
