Indian Wells Golf Resort's 'Shots in the Night'

A review of the inaugural Shots in the Night season (October 2018 through June 2019) resulted in a number of off-season improvements, including better lighting, enhanced seating options on green surrounds, new rock pathways between games, new putting green games and a simplified scoring system.

“We’re excited to unveil Shots in the Night 2.0 to guests,” said Indian Wells Golf Resort’s Director of Night Golf Matt Balesteri. “The new lighting, rock pathways and plants really add to the ambiance of the area and the new games, including one called Last Man Standing, are a blast, especially for groups. We’ve also streamlined the entire program to make it easier to play the games, understand the rules and the scoreboard system.”

Shots in the Night is open for public play Thursday through Saturday from sundown until 10 p.m. and features Glow Golf on the practice range, NextLinks Putting Green Games on the seven-green putting course, a food truck dining option, music and clubhouse food and drink specials. Shots in the Night is perfect for families, small groups, corporate outings or guests looking to extend their day of fun at Indian Wells Golf Resort’s award-winning facility. Games are de­signed for golfers of all skill levels, including beginners or those who do not play golf frequently. Packages are available for private parties with food and beverage included.

In 2018, Golf Inc. recognized Shots in the Night as one of the “Best New Amenities” at a public and resort golf facility, calling it a “TopGolf-style blend of golf and entertainment.”
