9 teams of four entered this year playing 5 holes of golf under a moonlit sky but otherwise in the dark using glowing balls. Illuminated coloured markers were strategically placed around the course indicating the fairways, bunkers and greens.

Members of the Rotary Club ably assisted by partners, family and friends helped to guide the players round the course and managed the event which included a welcome bowl of soup and a hot meal following play.
