Is Golf A Good Stag Do Activity?
I suppose what I am trying to say is that it all depends on your group and the way you handle the booking.
We take many stag do bookings which include Golf and find half of them either reduce right down in numbers or completely cancel.
If the groom loves golf and wants to have a game on his stag weekend, then that's great, he should be able to do what he wants to do.
However, if you have 20 people on the list you will possibly find that over half will not have played golf before or even want to play this fustrating game.
Note; Churchill was quoted on saying; "Golf spoils a good walk!"
So you have two options, book the golf for the Sunday morning and do something else on the Saturday, or quote the guys two prices, with and without golf.
They then have the option and will still attend the stag weekend without feeling that have to play and pay for golf.
Golf is an extremely hard game and if you have never played before you are going to look a divot!
So most people who have never played and don't want to play golf shy away from the prospect of picking up a driver and wacking a ball.
I play golf, not very well, however I do understand that some people just do not want to play the game.
You could always ask the non players to caddy or hold the beer so they don't have to pay.
Whatever you decide, try not to push golf on a non player when booking a stag do, as you may find attendees dropping out like flies.
