It's not a maker project without LED lights.
But like golf, you can get involved LEDs at many levels.
For the most flexibility, you can start out with 5v WS2812B addressable LED strips. Adafruit brands these as "NeoPixels."
You can build anything with these, by pairing them with Arduinos, other microcontrollers, and sensors, and... really anything.
Here's an entry-level strip on Amazon.
