Planning a memorable stag or hen party.

Do you need some inspiration for a stag or hen do?

Your family member or your best friend is getting married and you’ve been entrusted with the organisation of an important rite of passage – the pre-wedding party for the bride or groom. What do you do? What kind of sendoff do you give them that marks the event appropriately while giving everyone a good time?

At Dunham Forest Golf &CC, not only can we deliver the red carpet treatment for weddings but we can also help with the celebrations of those last days of ‘single-dom’ with a fun stag or hen party that all invitees can enjoy.

Choosing an activity for your stag or hen party.

Stag and hen parties today have evolved from the predictable night out in a bar or club. Many now include going away for the day or weekend and incorporate activities that you can all do and enjoy together. These may be things the bride or groom has never tried before, that they have a special interest in or brings people together through fun activities and games.

A sporty party for the stag or hen.

Whether you are planning something for the bride or groom, you could choose a sporting activity that accommodates all levels of ability. Not only is a little competition between family and friends fun and energising, but new interests can be born and skills can be learned or improved.

At Dunham Forest Golf & CC, our specialty is golf but our offering consists of so much more than 18 holes. We can tailor the day to suit your requirements and include:

  • food and drink
  • golf lessons
  • golf academy access with state-of-the-art video technology
  • driving, putting and swing practice
  • longest drive and nearest the pin competitions
  • morning, afternoon and/or twilight sessions

Why not combine activities and make use of our helipad for the stag or hen to arrive in style or book them a flight around the picturesque Cheshire countryside during the party?

Food and wine tasting activities for the stag or hen party.

Whether the bride or groom are foodies or not, you could consider food and wine tasting activities for their party. Here at Dunham Forest Golf &CC, we can design and create wonderful menus but we are also used to working with outside caterers and can even suggest local companies for you to contact. Fun activities to try include the blind tasting of:

  • champagne, prosecco, craft beer, craft gin, cocktails or wine
  • chocolate and/or cake
  • cheese and/or charcuterie
  • chillies (if you’re feeling brave!)

Stag and hen party fun and games.

Your idea of a stag or hen party may be geared towards something more traditional or bang on trend. Here at Dunham Forest Golf &CC we can accommodate a range of tastes such as:

  • a BBQ party on our terrace
  • a cocktail party either indoors or outdoors
  • an afternoon tea party with all the trimmings

If you are looking for something a little more challenging, why not combine the food element with playing some grown-up games? These could be based around a theme, such as escape or murder where clues have to be solved. We could help you set up a treasure hunt or make room for a range of craft activities for you all to have a go at or even learn a dance routine as a surprise to perform at the wedding.
