The Best Ideas for a Golf-Themed Wedding


Even those without the slightest interest in golf elect to host their weddings at golf clubs. Surrounded by lavish country grounds, golf clubs are steeped in tradition, and their pretty architecture tends to reflect this fact. Going one stage further though, and incorporating golf as a theme of your wedding is an altogether different matter. To give you a head start on planning the golf wedding of your dreams, here are some of the best ideas we could find.

Scorecard invites

An innovative way to establish the theme for your wedding right off the bat is to send out scorecard-themed invites.  The similarity between the size and shape of a typical golf scorecard and a typical wedding invite makes the transition from golf scorecard to a wedding invite an easy one. They are destined to delight the golf fan in everyone.

Pay attention to the little things

Providing pencils that you would only otherwise use for marking your score on a round of eighteen combines well with the scorecard invites. Getting the pencils inscribed with ‘par for the course,’ or something of that like makes the association of the pencils with golf that bit more obvious. Etching messages of support for the couple into the guestbook with a golf pencil is fitting for a golf-themed wedding.

Golfing wedding cake topper

Not taking advantage of the excessive customizability of the wedding cake is a sin. Getting your hands on a golf wedding cake topper could not be easier. Whether you opt for a classic flag pin and green, or a more ambitious recreation of the bride and groom teeing off, within the golfing sphere – the options are endless.

‘Just married’ golf cart

An inspired twist on the typical getaway cars you have seen countless times in American films, the golf cart decorated with ‘just married’ signs is the perfect vehicle to carry the happy couple away. Streamers and plastic bottles are obvious additions that will add a welcome ripple of movement and sound that only serves to make the escape even more memorable.

Get creative with the tables

Table numbers are dull and uninspired. Replacing numbers with a selection of famous courses actually requires some effort, and it is the kind of effort that your family and friends will appreciate. If you have guests attending from all over the place, it might be worth splitting the tables into courses from the different regions represented. Also, using miniature flagpole pins as placeholders is not only a clever way to maintain the golf theme, it also means they are elevated to a height where everyone can see them – allowing your guests to side-step any muddling confusion.

Golf-themed favours       

Favors are where you have the most creative license. Newlyweds have given their guests everything from subscriptions to the local paper, to tiny bottles of alcohol. Adorned with the date of the wedding, personalized golf balls can make a practical gift that also gives guests a welcome reminder of a special and treasured occasion every time they go to tee off – perfect if your guests are as golf-crazy as you.

There we have it, some of the best and brightest ideas to get in touch with your inner golfer when you host your very own wedding. If you decide to have it at a resort, be sure to have a huge game the morning after the reception, dress for the part in some Callaway Golf Clothing – and try not to upstage the bride!
