Oswestry Golf Club welcomed its members to a lit-up course after dark for their first ever night golf event.

The event proved to be a popular idea after the entry sheet filled up within a week of it being released.

Those participating donned their spookiest outfits as they took to the course on the evening of Hallowe’en, where they played a six-hole Texas scramble.

Tee boxes were lit up, along with hundreds of lights framing the fairways and hazards.

Flags were also alight and illuminated golf balls helped to ensure the balls were tracked through the air.

The evening started with a bang when rocket-like fireworks lit up the skies above the course to mark the start of the event.

Sticking with the Hallowe’en theme, the ladies section under the watchful eye of head organiser and lady captain Marie Male dressed the clubhouse in Halloween themed decorations, where food was supplied by Paul Slater, with a special witches brew was provided alongside the normal bar selection.

Club captain Steve Ashworth said: “What a great evening. It was fantastic to see the club coming together to support such an interesting idea.

“We’ve worked hard to bring this to the club and we are absolutely delighted by the support shown by the members.”

Head professional Richard Edwards added: “The members absolutely loved it. What a great idea.

“It was a very fun, friendly event that was very well organised and extremely competitive.

“It was good to see the members dressed up and really buying into the whole thing.”

Plans are already being worked out for a rerun of the event in 2019.
