Top Bachelor Party Destinations For Golfers: Where Augusta Ranks
Wedding season will soon be here. And ahead of wedding season, many best men are looking forward to celebrating the groom with a bachelor party. While some people may seek out the vibes of The Hangover movie and strippers, others are opting for something a little more relaxed. LawnStarter ranked this year’s best bachelor party destinations for golfers.
They compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities based on three categories. These categories include play, stay, and party. More specifically, they factored in golfer-friendliness, bachelor party-friendliness, and hangover cure index, among 12 total metrics.
This Georgia city scored a spot in the top 10.
Atlanta ranked at number 9. The ranking highlights it as being a great place to party and stay. When it comes to Augusta, it ranked a bit lower on the list at 88. Although some could argue that it deserves to be ranked higher. Each April, the city hosts the Masters Tournament at Augusta National.
Other Georgia cities made the list, too. Savannah ranked at 35, Macon at 178, and Columbus at 195.
Las Vegas steals the show!
Ahead of Orlando in the number one spot is Las Vegas, with an overall score of 62.36 out of 100. They were highlighted in the ranking for the Wynn Golf Club and Shadow Creek Golf Course. They said that these two golf courses are “the most premium golf courses in the country” and are “can’t-miss experiences.” As a heads up, they do note that Wynn Golf Club and Shadow Creek Golf Course carry a hefty price tag. If you’re looking for something a bit easier on the wallet, they suggest trying Bali Hai Golf Club.
Also highlighted is the city’s Topgolf facility. It’s complete with two pools and a movie theater-sized screen for watching sports. Las Vegas scored high marks all around, especially in the party in play categories.
Orlando ranks at number 2!
Overall, Orlando’s score is 58.32 out of 100. They highlighted the city’s abundance of golf courses, pointing out the Ritz Carlton Golf Course, and the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club. These also made mention of Winter Park Golf Course and the Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge. Additionally, Orlando scored high when it came to the number of golfer-friendly hotels.
If you’re not quite convinced about a golf outing for a bachelor party, then Wedding Forward offered some suggestions. They recommend going on a brewery tour, doing an escape room challenge, going somewhere warm, and renting a boat, mudding, paintball, among other activities.
