Birthday Golf. A Guys Birthday Golf Party

Looking for the perfect summer birthday party for a guy? Combine a golf outing... plus a cook out! The afternoon is devoted to a friendly golf tournament, then everyone goes back to the house for a cookout.  You can't go wrong!
 
Birthday Golf Outing Invitations
Start this golf birthday party off right with a great invitation. There are plenty of fun options. We love this personalized golf invitation since it has a matching banner and favors like a candy bar wrapper and water bottle label. The "On the Green" and the "Nine Holes" invitations are great too!
 
If you want something that really features the guest of honor send an invite with their image on it! Golf themed photo ticket invitations are very popular.
 
Another unique golf invitation is our Golf Semi-Custom Caricature. Add the guest of honor's face to the invite, or for a little more have a caricature face drawn and added to the invite. The guests will be wowed!
 
golf theme decorations and party supplies
 You are not going to need any decoration during the golfing, all the atmosphere you need is on the course! There are definitely a few things you can do to make it more interesting.  Jimmy, one of the Party411 guys, always does a golf outing for his birthday which makes him our expert. He has a few great tips for your birthday golf outing -
"We always have a golf outing in the afternoon. In fact, we are on the 12th Birthday Outing now. We usually end up with 20-28 golfers playing a four-man scramble. This is the 2nd year that the fathers (often referred to as the Old Foxes) play our sons (naturally the Young Lions) for the Mr. D trophy (named after my Dad). Mine is a stag affair, but these things work just as well with mixed couples.
 
If you're having a yearly event, I recommend having a special prize for the winners. You'll find that people want to get their name on the trophy more than they want to win a prize or a bet.
 
I've been doing this long enough to have some statistics for you:
  • Average length of party - 12 hours.
  • How many laughs - Thousands.
  • Stories told - Hundreds.
  • Amount of fun - Too much.
The decorations help, but my friends and family make the day special. This works for me, but the key is getting your friends together in a fun, relaxed atmosphere."
Since your friends and family are what make this party special, you can show your appreciation for them by giving everyone a favor on the first tee. Keep it simple; a few tees, a golf ball, or a personalized candy bar, but you might also want go with a personalized water bottle (or even a personalized beer bottle). It can get pretty hot out there in the summer.
 
Golf Theme Birthday Table Decorations and Menu
After golf, the guests should make their way back to your house to relive their rounds (usually shot by shot), eat some grilled food and play some horseshoes or bocce. Think simple and very plentiful when planning your menu. Does the birthday boy have any favorites? Feature them! You can't go wrong with hot dogs, brats, burgers and the like. Choose whatever your favorites are for a backyard cookout.
 
You can tie in the golf theme with a few table decorations. Golf theme paper goods fit the theme to a "tee" and will look great under all that tasty food. Best part? No dishes to do!
 
Hang a personalized golf theme banner featuring a message to the birthday boy over the buffet or in the front yard.

If you want to do something really memorable, get a life-sized golfer cutout of the guest of honor (there is even an option of a more "traditional" golfer getup). Very fun for photos, people have a ball with these!

Golf Theme Birthday Party Favors
Send everyone home with a fun favor to remember the day by. Give everyone a box of tees or a small sleeve of golf balls. Add a sticker with a personalized message - "Thanks for making Jimmy's 50th birthday a hole-in-one!"
 
Everyone will have such a great time they will want you to make it an annual event, just like Jimmy's birthday party!
