Golfing in High Heels? Only in the Ukraine

We knew they liked things flashy in the former Soviet Republic. But looking fancy has moved from dancing in nightclubs to swinging golf clubs.

Superior Golf Resort
, which says it’s the only 5-star golf resort in the Ukraine, hosted an event called “Neon Night Golf in Heels” last month in an effort to attract more women to the sport. Partygoers traded plaid pants and cleats for short dresses and six-inch heels, then smacked flashing neon golf balls onto a glow stick-lit green. (Our suggestion for next time: make the shoes flashing neon as well.) The resort described this event as combining golf with “two of the things women love most—high heels and socializing.” Welcome to the Ukraine.
