Golfing Stag Parties. So, the sound of wedding bells is in the air, and your mate is knee-deep in table plans and cake samples, cutlery and confetti. One of the bridesmaids in on his back and the costs are rapidly thinning his wallet. The poor bloke only rose from his knee a few weeks ago, and he’s already under the pump!
What he needs is a world class send-off, the sort of Golfing Stag Parties only few can dream of. The plan is for him to only do this once, remember – a night out in Newcastle simply won’t do!
So take a look at findagolfbreak.com’s top three Golfing Stag Parties destinations for the soon-to-be wedded golf nut in your life.
The lowdown: These days, the great city of Prague requires no introduction. Based in the Czech Republic, it is an immensely popular stag and hen destination, with beer prices low and the standard of nightlife high. The two hour flight time from most London airports makes it a bright and breezy commute, and the locals are friendly.
The golf: Although we offer a range of golf packages in the Czech Republic, our go-to package is that of the stunning Black Ridge Resort, situated slap bang in the heart of Prague itself. It provides a golfing paradise of lush fairways, slick greens and stunning scenery in the metropolis of Prague’s hustle and bustle, at a price you would be hard-pushed to beat. There are a host of other beautiful courses within an easy distance to sample, including Beroun, a winding, ambitious course that will shake off any hangover!
The nightlife: Never has the phrase ‘what goes on tour, stays on tour’ applied to a city as much as it does Prague. No matter the time of year, it’s all going on in the former Bohemian capital, and trust us, mischief if there to be made should your stag party be a little on the rowdy side. As we said, beer prices are low, especially outside of the tourist hot spots, and Prague’s famous array of late night bars and clubs will test even the strongest first tee swing the next morning!
The cost: An example package of three nights Bed and Breakfast at the Black Ridge Resort, including buggy hire on both rounds, is just £255 per person. Get in touch for more exciting Prague packages.
The lowdown: A real taste of sun-soaked Algarve luxury, Vilamoura is a world class golfing destination. It is one of the biggest private tourism resorts in Europe and is one of the most prestigious in Portugal. Fairly far removed from the traditional Algarve, the purpose-built leisure resort of Vilamoura offers accommodation to suit all tastes – luxury hotels, privately owned villas and apartments on the golf course complexes, and a wide range of hotels and apartments near the marina. Stunning doesn’t quite cover it.
The golf: We’ve got a wide and varied range of available golf packages ideally suited to any stag do and indeed stag party, all of which include rounds of golf on world-class courses. One of the many pleasing features of Vilamoura’s charm is a free shuttle to the numerous and award-winning golf courses, including Victoria, Old Course, Pinhal, Millennium and Laguna.
The nightlife: The famous Vilamoura nightlife amounts to a stunning stretch of restaurants, bars and nightclubs that spans the resort. There’s nothing quite like kicking back with a cold Sagres after shooting a low one, and for moments like that Vilamoura is specially designed. The local speciality is Medronho, or ‘fire water’ as it is better known, and it has been known to literally bring tears to your eyes as you sip it. One for the stag, perhaps?
The cost: Our Vilamoura packages are available for as little as £295 per person for a three night, two round stay, including bed and breakfast. Get in touch for more details!
The lowdown: Wanting to keep things a little more local? You’d be hard-pressed to beat Southport for a Golfing Stag Parties destination here in the UK. Our packages cover a myriad of Southport courses, including the wondrous Royal Birkdale, and in terms of things to do when the sun goes down, it’s one of the best kept secrets in the country.
The golf: As mentioned above, Royal Birkdale, host to the 2017 British Open, is just one of the mouth-watering courses available to stag parties wanting to hone in on something a little more local. But that’s not it, of course. Hillside, Formby, Hesketh, Southport & Ainsdale, and West Lancashire Golf Clubs all contribute to the region’s hard-earned reputation as ‘England’s Golf Coast’.
The nightlife: Studded with classy specialty bars and restaurants, Southport is one of the most criminally underrated nightlife spots in the UK. From craft ale to whiskey via vodka and gin, there is a posting readily available to your party no matter what the taste, most of which are dotted along the famous Lord Street. For the ambitious amongst you, Liverpool is a short train journey away.
The cost: Our Southport stag packages are hugely reasonable. Get in touch today!
