Avoid the crowds and work on your handicap in the dark of night

DO YOU NEED GLOW-IN-THE-DARK BALLS?

Yes. Others have battery-powered lights. The fairways are illuminated by searchlights or floodlights – and you also need to take your sunglasses off.

WHERE DID IT ALL START?

In Florida and California. There are a number of lit-up par-3 holes there.

GOLF SANCTUARY:

The Nick Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai is lit by 500 searchlights and so can be enjoyed at pleasant ambient evening temperatures. Only the locals could cope with 18 holes during the day when the mercury can rise over 40°C.

COCKTAIL: WELLNESS

Drinking the creamy, ice-cold Wellness is the equivalent of two yoga sessions and a weekend’s fasting. Probably. It certainly feels like it’s doing good on the way down, leading a trickle of refreshing wellbeing along your spine.

Kombucha tea is said to help liver function, while the pineapple juice contains a performance-enhancing burst of vitamins and minerals. Honey and plain yoghurt deliver a natural energy kick. It certainly tastes delicious – which many things supposed to be good for you do not.

 

INGREDIENTS:

- 80ml kombucha tea

- 40ml pineapple juice

- 50ml plain yoghurt

- crushed ice

- 2tsp honey

- optional garnish: edible flowers

METHOD:

Put the tea, juice, yoghurt and ice into a blender, then add the honey (it goes in last, otherwise it sticks to the bottom of the jug). Blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with flowers
