Looking to put a new spin on a classic family activity, the minds behind Glowgolf decided to give the game a phosphorescent update. Incandescent courses place friends and family amid a tropical-fantasy golf world of neon orange, green, and violet surroundings. Players putt luminous orbs through vibrant treasure chests and glimmering windmills while negotiating tricky obstacles near walls portraying black-light-lit aquatic scenes. With more than 20 locations spread over 10 states, Glowgolf's fluorescent labyrinths challenge human players and traveling gnomes.
Nestled along the banks of Wagner Creek and the Wando River, Dunes West Golf & Country Club stretches across 6,871 yards of Carolina Lowcountry sculpted into an 18-hole layout designed by architect Arthur Hills. After traversing rolling terrain, quicksand bunkers, and oversize greens, golfers can conclude the par 72 layout at the 456-yard, par 4 18th hole, where Wagner Creek guards the entire left side of a shallow green that reveals the clubhouse's brick arches and second-story veranda just beyond the fringe. Golfers with slice-prone swings can make adjustments at the club’s driving range or schedule a lesson with one of the club’s PGA professionals, both more feasible than trying to control drives with telekinesis.

Designed in 1918 by prolific course architect Thomas Bendelow—reputed as "The Johnny Appleseed of American Golf" after designing roughly 600 courses over 35 years—Anderson Country Club's 18-hole, par 71 course stretches across 6,402 yards of lush Carolina woodlands. The emerald landscape features mostly straight-ahead fairways and favors a straightforward design in which tight tree lines provide the bulk of the challenge and most obstacles are easily identified from a distance. Four chromatically designated tee options make the course surmountable for players of all abilities, allowing scratch golfers to play alongside 10-handicap frenemies or competitively deficient alter egos.

Designed by 25-time PGA Tour tournament winner Davis Love III, Eagle's Pointe Golf Club's 18-hole, 6,738-yard course unfurls an emerald map of kempt fairways sculpted through oaks and pines and kissed by native wetlands. Throughout the course, tree-lined fairways criss-cross lowland water hazards to form an intermediately long layout where off-kilter swings may result in lost balls and winded golf carts. Sporting the boldly contoured greens that have become Davis Love III's calling card, the course places a high premium on pinpoint approaches that leave manageable two-putts. To prepare for rounds, players can warm up their swings at the driving range, where grass hitting areas emulate course conditions alongside artificial mats that wait eternally for the stinging rip of a divot to validate their claim to authentic existence.

At Charleston National Golf Club, course architect Rees Jones found a new muse in the varied, natural terrain of the Intracoastal Waterway. The famous channel runs right along the 7,046-yard course, putting water hazards in play on five holes and marshland on several others, making it critical for golfers to execute accurate shots or attach dog tags to their golf balls so they can find their way home. Pine and oak trees roam the rough throughout the course, adding even more obstacles apart from the numerous bunkers and ponds.
Before digging their tee or antique rail spike into the dirt for the first hole, golfers can warm up at the Club's driving range. The all-grass practice area also serves as the training ground for lessons, clinics, and golf camps conducted by Scott's World of Golf.

His innate golfing expertise, which netted him the 2005 Illinois PGA Senior Masters Championship, is bolstered by a video-analysis system that allows him to examine every aspect of his students' form and point out faults in the arc of their swing or the creases in their chinos.
