37th annual A Shot in the Dark [logo]

Join us for A Shot in the Dark 2024 – the annual night golf outing benefiting Prevent Blindness Iowa. This unique event presents interesting challenges for all types of golfers and introduces you to the impact of vision loss as you test your skills at night.

The evening starts with dinner, drinks and an online auction. The night is full of fun and laughter as foursomes make their way around the moonlit course with only flashlights, glow-in-the-dark golf balls, glow sticks and glow ropes to guide the way!  After golf, the clubhouse is the place to be with snacks, drinks, music and fun. At the awards ceremony, high and low score teams are announced for each of the courses.
