This extremely popular game is played all over the country and overseas by stag parties, so there’s no reason why you and the lads shouldn’t try this awesome game!

What is Pub Golf?

Not quite a sport as you might imagine, pub golf is played when a stag do group head out to the pubs and bars wearing golfing attire. With a pre-determined set of rules, nine pubs will need to be chosen as your “holes” for the night. If you think you can handle it, you could always opt to go all the way with 18! Anyone breaking the rules or not following protocol will have to face the consequences!

You Will Need:

1. Golfing Gear

2. Pub Golf Course (9 holes or 18)

3. Score Cards

How to Play the Pub Golf Drinking Game

As long as you’ve got some golfing gear and an iron stomach, you’re ready to play! The game will begin when you and the guys arrive at the first venue. To avoid any possible confusion, someone in the group should be elected to take a copy of the rules with them on the night.

This way, you can make sure that everyone plays fairly! Like in a real game of golf, the fewer mistakes made, the lower the score… and the lad with the lowest score by the end of the night will be named the pub champion! On the flipside, anybody caught breaking the rules will have points added to their score and take a forfeit!

1. Choose which holes/pubs will be considered as ‘water hazards’; if a player needs to go the toilet whilst at the water hazard they will have to add 1 point to their score

2. Choose some for ‘bunker hazards’ too; if a player doesn’t drink their drink in par, they will have to down a shot to get out of the bunker as well as add 1 point onto their score

3. If you spill your drink or another player's drink, you will have to add 3 points to your score

4. Cheating is strictly forbidden and if you catch someone lying about how many drinks/­sips/­gulps they do add 5 points to the score

5. An 18-hole pub golf course can be pretty challenging; if someone ends up throwing up they will have to add 10 points to their score
