Play Golf with a Sporting Star!

*UPDATE* Our celebrity golf packages are a great way to entertain clients and treat friends and family for birthdays, with all packages complying with social distancing. Please contact us for further details today!

Share a fantastic golfing experience with one of your sporting heroes with a round on a leading UK course and a meal afterwards with your chosen celebrity. This package makes the perfect corporate gift, incentive prize or a birthday present for someone special! It’s a rare opportunity to spend genuine quality time with a sporting idol who will be delighted to share stories from his or her career both out on the fairways and greens and during a well-earned post-round meal with a few drinks.

Whatever your budget we have hundreds of celebrity sports stars on our books, from the worlds of football, rugby, cricket, athletics, snooker and boxing – in fact pretty much any sport you can name, we’ve got it covered! If you’ve ever dreamed of spending time with one of your idols from the team you support this is the package for you. Whether you want a former England rugby captain, an international cricket legend or an icon from your local team, we can help. For an extra special touch why not choose a high-class piece of signed memorabilia to treasure as a memento of the day?

Your package will be concluded with a buffet lunch in the clubhouse with your sporting legend, subject to social distancing rules at that point. If social distancing prevent an inside lunch, we will look at an outside lunch instead. This package can be for as many guests as you wish, with everybody joining together for lunch with your chosen sports star at the end. Alternatively, we could organise a sports star to join every 4-ball!
