Play Golf with a Sporting Star!

Play golf with a celebrity: Tee off alongside your favourite stars of sport, comedy & music

Only Gala can offer golf hospitality with the A-list. From a sporting hero to your favourite musician, you’ll never forget your round on a top UK course followed by an intimate meal with stories from their glittering career. Whether it’s a corporate gift for a key client, a prize to motivate your sales teams or a special gift for a close friend, our celebrity golf hospitality is the perfect day out in the sun, from the first swing in the tee box to drinks in the clubhouse.

Celebrity golf hospitality in the company of legends

Whatever your budget, wherever you’re based in the UK and however many guests you’d like to invite, Gala can deliver your dream to play golf with a celebrity. As the UK’s most respected name in golf hospitality, we offer access-all-areas privileges at leading golf courses across the South (Royal St. George’s, Sunningdale, The Grove), Midlands (The Belfry, Forest Of Arden), North-West (Royal Birkdale, Royal Liverpool, Royal Lytham & St. Anne’s), North-East (Ganton, Close Hill), South West (St Mellion, Burnham & Berrow) and Scotland (Gleneagles, Trump Turnberry, Carnoustie). Alternatively, just let us know your location and we’ll find the most convenient course for you.

We’ll also supply the shiver of excitement as your favourite celebrity arrives with their clubs to accompany you up the fairway. Maybe you’d like to test your skills against a giant from the world of football, rugby, cricket, athletics, boxing or snooker. Or perhaps you’d prefer to match your favourite stand-up comic, pop singer or TV presenter swing-for-swing. Whoever you choose, your chosen celebrity will be with you from course to clubhouse, where you’ll get to know them even better over drinks and unforgettable anecdotes. And in case you think it was all just a daydream, we can even arrange a one-off signed memento as a keepsake from your day. 

These are just some of the sporting stars available for our celebrity golf hospitality – with hundreds more names from the worlds of comedy, music and TV available on enquiry.
