Golfing in broad daylight can be difficult enough. I can't imagine what it's like playing golf in the dark, but that's what a Glow Ball Golf Tournament is all about. And it's not even about good golf, but more about having fun and helping a great cause. That's why KOOL 107.9 is supporting the CASA golf event on August the 9th at Chipeta Golf Course.

In case you aren't familiar with CASA, it stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children. CASA of Mesa County is a non-profit organization that trains and supervises volunteers to represent the best interests of children who are victims of abuse and neglect.

CASA's 9th annual Glow Ball Golf Tournament and Silent Auction is a fund-raising event to support this local agency as they provide a voice for the hurting children in our community. The entry fee is just $65, and includes 9 holes of golf, appetizers, drinks, and an entry into a raffle for some great prizes.

I have never participated in a glow ball golf event and so I'm definitely looking forward to joining with my radio colleagues in supporting CASA, and for the first time in my life, playing golf in the dark. Though I have never played glow golf, I DO know that the balls glow in the dark, and there are other glow in the dark features to facilitate the playing of golf without the benefit of daylight.

Before darkness arrives there will be some friendly competitions, including the Longest Drive -- with a marshmallow! How fun! I know you are wondering - do you get to eat the marshmallow after you hit it? Okay, maybe I'm the only one who's wondering that.

It truly doesn't matter what your golfing ability is. This will be a fun event that you can feel good about doing because of the children you will be helping. If you would like to participate with us just go to the CASA website for a registration form.
