    I'd rather go to a range and hit a large bucket instead.
    From what I observe the definition of twighlite it varies from course to course.

    For my course Twighlite rate runs from 3-5pm at a discount of $30 off the prime rate.
    We also have an "Evening" rate which mirrors our 9 hole rate and that Runs from 5pm onwards and is $50 ( ~ 60%) off the prime time green fee. I think most courses would call that their twighlite rate.

    Gives people who book in early enough 4 hours currently and 4.5 hours in peak daylight so pretty good opportunity to get lots of holes in

      One because I am cheap. Two because currently I am 'pushing it' trying to play 18. And also because I do not wish to slow anyone down. So if there is a group behind we will sometimes let them go ahead of us, or play through.

      Despite the fact that we were traditionally 'fast' golfers. But I walk and that might slow down a group of riders.

      We also ask the starter/marshal how if or how many groups are behind us, and what it is like in front.

      We do that in order to determine how we might play.
      For example if there are groups in front and none behind, then we might play multiple balls.
      if there are none for a few times/holes ahead of us, but some booked after us, then we play faster in order to 'open up' the holes behind us and not slow down those following.

      As for getting in 18 during twilight. Prior to COVID, depending upon the course, we used to be able to accomplish that around 50% of the time.
      one reason we get so many families and beginners in the evening is we have a daily special where a parent and their son or daughter both get to play for the evening rate of $39. A very popular deal.

        From our experience . . . I usually play later in the afternoon. Before the course was mostly empty, after 7:30 definitely empty. Now it is busy until the sun goes down and even passes this . . .

          Usually we have tee time until 8:00 . . . this week I went until 7:00 . . . Pro Shop attendant ask me "What happen if somebody wants to play 9 at 7:30" . . . me, just add him at 7:00.

          We don't have reduce rate, same cheap price all day . . . Our quiet time is usually between 1:00 and 4:00 . . .

            Teeing off at 6, there should be no expectation of completing 18.

            That being said, 24 years ago, July 1998, I was moving my family to Calgary and solo for a month prior to the fam arriving with the van. I had booked the second Friday of Stampede week at D’arcy Ranch in Okotoks for my brother and I. deal of the decade: $15 all the holes you can play after 6PM. We teed off at 6. When we arrived, we were sent off on 10 to start as they had an issue. We were coming in on 9 at 10PM, basically in the dark. We walked the course, which for anyone who has played D’Arcy, knows it is a hilly course…think Blue Springs in Acton….or the Pulpit.

            Sooo much fun. My approach from the fairway on 9 was a blind short in the dark to 2’. My brother, no such luck….lost ball….
