Like Kanye would say, “Turn up the lights in here, baby!” And like I say, “I LOVE this course”.
This par 3/par 4 course in Indio has everything. Well, except for par 5’s. No matter the time of day you can play, The Lights at Indio is there waiting. With 18 holes made up of 3 and 4 pars, The Lights is an excellent place to perfect your iron play, and the super slick, firm greens make this short course much more challenging than expected. Remember, everything breaks towards Indio. You’ll thank me later.
At The Lights at Indio, the name says it all. As if darkness never falls on the course, the huge stadium lights lining every hole take over for the sun when it turns in for the night and disappears beyond the mountains. The Lights at Indio is the perfect place for players who work into the evening hours or just want to avoid the fiery summer sun and high temperatures. The course stays lit until 10:00 pm and rounds are short and sweet. Just like the course.
The Lights at Indio provides a unique opportunity for all golfers in the desert. With night rounds available and practice facilities open until 10pm, players can continue to practice, improve and enjoy rounds of golf year round.
There’s no need to put up your clubs this summer. Throw them in your trunk and head to The Lights at Indio after work. Show up on a Tuesday night and you might even get to join the Skins Game and win some cash. Oh, and did I mention green fees at night with a cart are only $15? Like I said, I LOVE THIS COURSE!
For those in your group that might not feel like having a traditional round, The Lights at Indio also offers Foot Golf… which is, exactly what it sounds like. It’s actually just like golf except you use your foot instead of a club and a soccer ball instead of a golf ball. When I say it like that, it’s not really the same at all, is it?
Foot Golf has become very popular and there are even leagues… nationwide. But if you’re thinking, “Foot Golf… that seems much easier than real golf”, remember, the key word in that phrase is, “seems”. As we all know, things are not always as they seem. Foot Golf is an absolute hoot and great fun for anyone, but don’t surprised if you are humbled by it.
Trust me, like the writing on the bathroom wall at your favorite bar, “For a good time, call The Lights in Indio”.
