The Rules To Pub Golf

Image
Liven up your stag night with a theme or game, and there's no better stag do game than pub golf.

So here at the DesignaVenture Towers we have been listening to our stag parties and recently we have been asked for the rules to the stag do game Pub Golf.

So like the pleasing company we are, here are the rules to this brilliant game that doesn't come with frustration and certainly doesn't ruin a good pub crawl.

Pub Golf Rules Rule #1 - Dress Code Everyone MUST dress up like a pro golfer. Socks with a tartan or Argyle pattern if you please, brightly coloured golfing trousers (the more pastel the better), a matching shirt or polo shirt and a sun-visor.

Stag Do Destination Guide: Liverpool

This time for our Stag do destination guide we're going to shine the spotlight on Liverpool. An incredible city, with more culture than a lorry full of Probiotic drinks that's listening to Culture club.

What's a stag weekend without a thoroughly decent activity which will knock you about and stick you in the drink?

White water rafting is that very activity.

In a nutshell, white water rafting is bombing down a river in an inflatable where paddles, at times, seem surplus to requirements.
