How far to glow stick balls travel?

I’m attending a bachelor party next month and the groom is an assistant pro so we are going to play night Golf with golf Balls that have a colored glow stick Inside.  Can anyone tell me roughly how much less distance will be gained using this type of ball?  10% or 20% or more?  Does anyone have experience with these glow balls?

We host 2 or 3 night golf  events a year.   I'm  not sure of the brand of balls we use, but they are pretty good, they  don't seem to lose more than 1 club on irons and maybe 15 to 20 or so yards on driver.   But as a result we move the tees up at least one box if not two on most of the holes.

I've always wondered this about the glow balls, myself. Thanks for the info!

What kind of cost involved to host one?
Looking maybe to try it this summer with our league.

We use the Night Flyer balls here, LED light built inside them that activates when hit and stays lit for about 8 minutes.  Just carry two in your pocket and swap them every shot or two.

In general they play about a club less than a regular ball for me.

I can get you some more details soon.  But We typically have 50 or so players and spend probably $15 to $20 per player on supplies.  You need lots of glow sticks for tees, fairways and greens.  As well as balls and glow necklaces etc for the players.
