MINOT, N.D. - The Minot Country Club hosted its second annual After Dark Glow-Ball Tournament last night. Eighty players tested their game in the dark and were dressed for the occasion.

"We start lighting the golf course up at about 2:30 in the afternoon with glow sticks and all sort of lighting going on the flag sticks," said club pro Andrew Schmitz, PGA. "We [have to] mark the bunkers, and this golf course is tough to do with that. It's pretty dangerous so we light up the golf course pretty well."

Golfers enjoy playing the game in a completely different atmosphere.

"You can't really see anything," added Schmitz. "It's super dark. We do our best we can with lighting up all the hazards, bunkers, greens, the tee boxes and everything. It's pretty tough. It makes it really fun for everybody."

The Glowball tournament wrapped up after midnight.
