     With LED lights installed on the nine-hole, par-3 course and its driving range, Suncoast Golf Center & Academy has been dubbed the only lighted golf course- allowing night play- in the Manatee County region of Florida. “Here it never gets dark,” said Scott Lamoureaux, director of golf operations and part owner, “these new lights will make a difference… there will be no dark spots at all.”

     With wine and beer sold on-site, pro shop, synthetic turf inside an air-condition Golf Academy and many other amenities, it’s the perfect place for locals to unwind with a few holes after sunset (the course is open till 10pm). “We definitely want to be recognized as a great value,” said Lamoureaux, “our goal is to maintain really nice conditions, but [also to] maintain exceptional values.”
