Watch for a green eerie glow radiating from the Fairways Golf Course in Cheney the evening of Aug. 11. But don’t be alarmed. It’s the seventhannual Bud Light Up the Night Golf Tournament.
Registration and contests begin at 5, with dinner at 6. The nine-hole scramble, using glow-in-the-dark balls, begins at 8. Since it’s a nighttime affair, participants are encouraged to wear pajamas, and the best pair of pj’s wins an award.
The $35 registration fee includes greens fees, a commemorative golf bag water bottle, a glow ball and a steak dinner. The field is limited to 144 entrants.
Proceeds from this shot-in-the-dark event will benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Registrations forms are available at area golf courses and the MS office at 818 E. Sharp. For more information, call 482-2022.
