Each of the greens will be mapped electroni- cally, with putting games such as "Horse," "Golf Darts" and "Golf Bocce" initially being considered among the play options. Coupled with the new evening attraction will be a social scene that includes outdoor seating and bar and food service. "The whole idea is to provide a easy-to-play experience in a fun golf environment," added Teb- betts. "It's something that's unique and the first of its kind, especially on the putting side – nothing like this exists." During the 4th annual Indian Wells Pro-Am, a preview was teased to atten- dees as the resort unveiled a taste of "Glow Golf" on the driving range. "We wanted to surprise the players so they could enjoy a shot or two or ten," Tebbetts said on the eve of the Pro-Am. Sporting massive inflatable targets in the shape of bowling pins and beach balls, the Glow experience will aug- ment the attractions to come for guests of the resort looking for evening enter- tainment. "The targets have an LED light that is inside the target, and we attached sensors to each one, so when the ball hits, the targets blinks. The balls are ac- tivated by black light and before we use them, we charge them up," Teb- betts said of the new range game. "It's a lot of fun. And it's really designed for golfers of all skill levels, especially those who don't play that much as they can enjoy a fun and less-intimi- dating golf experience."
