Plan a Golf Party for a Guys' Guy

Updated on October 2, 2016

Golf Birthday Party Ideas for the Guy Who Has Everything

Throwing a golf party for a bachelor or your favorite guy? Pull up an easy chair and borrow my "Golf Party Cliff Notes." I've assembled the best of what I found from invites, to cocktails to crazy duds in one place, for your convenience... from a man to a bud.

This all came about when my best bud's "Big 4-Oh" was upon the horizon. He loves golf, and ok I admit it, I don't. But, that wasn't going to stop me! I could do Birthday Golf for my bud. I could, yes I could. Follow me to the green...

Luckily, I'm a fast learner and I managed to throw together everything I needed to keep the fun real on the green and into the 19th hole.

Hope it helps. See you after the "back 9."

Checklist for a Good Golfing Time

(Because you're not going to a strip club this time)

So your buddy's getting older or married and you and your friends want to help him celebrate another year waking up on the right side of the green but none of you can or want to stay out partying like John Daly all night doing shot after shot until the evening ends with someone in the fetal position on the bathroom floor at a Waffle House?

Why not treat the birthday golf boy to an afternoon of golf, cigars, a few beverages and some big rounds at the 19th hole?

Besides, you and your posse of friends are too classy to waste time and money Tiger style at a strip club (and you did that anyways last year for Joey's birthday).

Here's the general Bucket list:

1) Secure a time and date for a round of golf and a room at his favorite clubhouse, watering hole or friend's man cave

2) Send out some fun Golf "Par-Tee" invitations like the ones below and ask all his friends to sign up for a round of golf or meet at the assigned watering hole decked out in their craziest golf gear

3) Ask the bartender if you can provide a signature cocktail drink (see suggestion below) and set out some cocktail snacks in martini glasses or golf ball shaped bowls

4) Make up a playlist of cool tunes to rotate on a set of portable & personalized speakers (see below)

5) Decorate the tables and wall with photo sculptures of the man of honor partying (that you can request all his friends to send) or create some Faux Golf Magazine covers featuring the man of the hour. See below for examples and a link to my site where you can make your own!

And, if you're lucky and the ladies let you stay out late, maybe one of you will end up in the fetal position on the bathroom floor of the Club House instead? It's time to PAR-TEE!

Golf Invitations set the tone for Good Green fun

Dress to Impress - Get noticed on the Green.

So you picked a date, assembled the players and reserved your T time what's next?

Why not suggest that your crew wears some really jackass crazy cool gear? Get online for some eye-fogging Loudmouth golf gear, or use your own golf motto and make some customized polo shirts or golf hats with the options already available on Zazzle like the one below with a skull and crossed clubs.

At the least, it will make it easier for that babe driving the beverage golf cart to find your group. And what a great photo shoot it will make, not to mention the attention you'll get at the Clubhouse. If John Daly can rock them, so can you!

Game Over; A Signature Golf Cocktail will get them Swinging

Ok, so the strip club is out this year, and the golf club is in... might as well invite the ladies. This of course requires a little extra preparation because, as we all know, girls like nice stuff. So, make him look the fabulous host and pull out the stops; that means pull out the cute napkins and appetizer do-hickies... the ladies love them!

Then, get the bartender on board to get the gals dancing... bring out the Signature Cocktail;

The John Daly

- A tall glass with ice

- An ounce of Vodka

- Fill half with Lemonade

- Fill half with Ice Tea

- Add a lemon wedge

Little Lady wants to make a cake? - Sweet Greens

A hole in one to take the cake

If someone special insists on making a cake... here's a little photo direction. It could be your guy's best chance to make a hole in one. Make a gift out of it by burying a golf themed souvenir shot glass in the hole as a keepsake. Plus, add to the decor in the Club house with these themed decorations to set the scene.

Bachelor Party or Bust? - What Do Guys Really Want to Do?

Ok, neither your girl, your in-laws, nor your frat crew is watching, so no need to hide the truth...

What do/did you really want to do for your own Bachelor Party?
