Golfing in the Dark

As the temperature rises, Arizonans decrease their outdoor activity. Even in this land of golf, valley courses find themselves empty of all except a few hardy souls. If it's 110 degrees, we don't want to spend a lot of time in the sun. Local golf courses handle this decrease in business in a couple of ways.

Since the humidity is low here, if you're in the shade, you're substantially cooler than in the sun. And what could be shadier than nighttime? Two golf courses run by the Phoenix Parks and Recreation department, Encanto 9 at 2300 N. 17th Avenue, and the Palo Verde course at 6215 N. 15th Avenue, are offering "Night Flight Golf." Get your glow necklace and glow ball, then head off on the glow-lighted course! For more information, check this web site ( ) or call 602.262.6870.

Everybody always mentions the low humidity when they talk about the heat in Arizona. But I've been there, and hot is hot. Phew.
