Golf for Kuu-us society

Night golf benefiting Kuu-us Crisis Society on Aug. 17 at Hollies Executive Golf Course.

So you think you can golf. But have you ever done it at night?

Kuu-us Crisis Line Society is holding its 17th annual Night Golf tournament on Saturday, Aug. 17 at Hollies Executive Golf Course on Johnston Road.

The event kicks off with a steak barbecue and silent auction at 6:30 p.m. courtesy of Quality Foods and Circle Dairy, followed by nine holes of golf in a best ball format.

This isn’t your regulation golf game, though. There will be wacky tee-off and putting contests before teams of six are sent out with their night golf accessories: glow-in-the-dark golf balls, necklaces and bracelets.

The fairways will be decorated with glow sticks so golfers are able to see where they and their golf balls are going.

There are many prizes, including a hole-in-one for $10,000, sponsored by MacDermott’s Insurance.

Tickets are $60 for both golf and dinner, or $25 for dinner only and are available at the Kuu-us office, 4589 Adelaide St.
