golf3Glowgolf, an operator of indoor, glow-in-the-dark, miniature golf courses based in Wichita, Kan., has opened a new location at The Shops at Ithaca Mall in Ithaca.

Glow-in-the-dark miniature golf is a family entertainment concept similar to black light or “cosmic” bowling.  Special florescent golf balls, putters, course obstacles and wall décor all glow under black lights. The florescent-glow of the course creates a “one-of-a-kind” miniature golf experience.

Located across from Aeropostale, the new The Shops at Ithaca Mall Glowgolf features an 18-hole golf course and an area for birthday parties and group events. Guests can play up to 54 holes with their admission.  An adult admission is nine dollars and a child admission is seven dollars. Group and family discounts are also available. Operating hours when school is in are Monday through Friday 4 p.m. - 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  When school is out, hours will be Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Jeff Bennett, area manager for Glowgolf, said, “The golf course turned out great.  It has all of our latest bells and whistles. The shoppers are going to have a lot of fun playing it.”

In addition to the new The Shops at Ithaca Mall location, Glowgolf also operates courses in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri, North Carolina. Tennessee, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
