Golf-Themed Hen Do Ideas

For many, planning the bachelorette party is one of the highlights of planning a wedding! As much fun as it is, though, planning a hen do can also be pretty stressful. It's meant to be one of the most enjoyable and memorable events of your life, so of course there's a lot of pressure to make sure everything is perfect!

If you're an avid golfer or are planning a hen do for a golf-mad girlfriend, keep reading. We've put together a few ideas for golf-themed hen activities, plus some top tips for planning the perfect golf-themed hen do.


Pub Golf

What better way to blow off some steam and unwind from the stresses of wedding planning than with a round of pub golf! One of the beauties of pub golf is that the rules are flexible and can be changed or adjusted to suit your party plans. Here are the basic rules...


How to Play Pub Golf

  • Choose your 'holes' (i.e. make a list of pubs in your chosen location)
  • Dress to impress! Think polo shirts, visors, plaid socks - the crazier the better.
  • Grab your score cards - it's time to tee off!


Pub Golf Rules

At each pitstop or 'hole', you have to finish your drink in a specific number of sips or 'shots'. It's up to you to decide what the 'par' for that hole is and what 'club' you'll be using.

For example, if hole 1 is par 6 with a Strongbow club, at your first pub you must aim to finish your Strongbow in 6 sips or less. Easy!

Many people choose to introduce penalties; for example, a 'water hazard' might be added, where bathroom breaks result in an additional stroke on your scorecard. Many people also choose to award prizes for various achievements, e.g. the lowest scoring golfer, best dressed, etc.


Golf Tour

Whether you choose to stay local or take your trip international, a golf tour is a very popular way for soon-to-be-married golfers to spend their final days of singledom! A hen weekend is an excellent opportunity to try out a new course, take a cheeky golf holiday to enjoy some sun, or even just visit your local course and enjoy a friendly round with your loved ones.

If you're looking for a hen do accessory to commemorate your bachelorette golf tour, personalised golf balls are a very popular option. There are a wide range of different customisations options for you choose from, including balls for bridesmaids, golf team logos, balls with the date of your wedding on, and more!

Mini Golf

If you're short on time, working with a tight budget, or just generally want a more low-maintenance hen do, mini golf is a fantastic option! Sometimes known as crazy golf, mini golf is a fun game that's great for competitive gals as well as those who are just out for a good time.

Whether you want your hen do to be a family-friendly event or you're looking for a boozier night out, you can find a crazy golf course that's perfectly suited to your needs. Mini golf has recently spiked in popularity, and as a result, there is no shortage of mini golf courses catering to both alcohol-fuelled adult nights out and more PG family-friendly fun.


Hen Do Tips

Hen dos can be fantastic fun, but for the one planning the event, there can be a lot of pressure to make sure everything goes perfectly. To help you ensure you've got all your bases covered, we've put together some top tips for successfully planning a hen do. Follow these tips to make sure that, when the big day rolls around, everything is taken care of and you can focus on having a good time!

Assign a chaperone

No matter what activity you decide to take part in, it's more than likely to involve drinking at some point or another. Hen parties have a reputation for getting pretty wild, so assigning a chaperone to stay sober (or at least drink in moderation) is a great idea. This chaperone will be in charge of making sure no party member falls behind, that the party stays on schedule, etc.


It's vital to ensure that all members of the bachelorette party know what you're doing, where you're going, and when. Making sure everything is properly organised is usually the responsibility of the maid of honour, but whoever you put in charge, make sure that everyone knows the plans well ahead of time so that they can keep their calendars free and adequately prepare.

Have a backup plan

Being prepared is key - the better planned your bachelorette is, the more fun it will be! Being prepared for as many instances as possible will ensure the party never has to stop. The bar is closed for refurbishment? No worries, here are three more in the area we can go to instead! Taxi didn't turn up? Don't worry, here are the numbers of some alternative local taxi companies we can call.


And there we have it: our top tips for a successful hen do, and some special golf-themed activities to consider. We hope this blog has got you feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to crack on and plan your own golf-themed hen do!
