Whether you like to hit the links yourself or just enjoy watching golf on a TV, a golf theme party is a great way to show your love for the game. Depending on your budget and artistic ability, a golf theme party may be as elaborate as Pebble Beach or as spartan as a simple Par 3 course. Either way, the right touches will ensure that your guests have a great time.

For wall decorations, choose between generic golf theme cutouts (e.g. golf clubs, tees and balls), pictures of favourite players or a combination. Companies such as Fathead make oversized sports related graphics that you can hang on the walls.
For something more modest, trace out a "putting green" shape on a piece of construction paper. Cut out the shape and cut distinctive items such as a golf cart and flag with additional sheets of construction paper. For an added twist try to cut out a variety of golf clubs (e.g. the wide club-like head of the driver or the long flat face of the putter).
If you plan to have food at your party, place a golf-themed centrepiece on each table. One idea is to use golf equipment as the centrepiece. Take a golf ball, a tee and a glove and wrap together with tissue paper. Place the tissue paper into a decorative bowl or another festive container and centre on each table.
If you'd rather stick with a pro-golf theme, adorn each table with professional golf trading cards. Use green tablecloths to give each table the look of a putting green. Additional table decorations include scorecards, ball markers and divot repair kits. For a fun twist, add figurines that speak to golf terminology such as a baby bird (for birdie), eagle or albatross (the term for a score three under par on a hole).
The typical golf course has a wide range of characteristics from which you can draw inspiration for your party space. One idea is to imagine the main room as a single hole or series of holes. Use green carpeting to create the sense that the party is on grass or to create the greens of the course. With spray paint, create the illusion of fairways, rough, sand traps and water hazards.
If your space is especially large or encompasses many rooms, create a few different holes and designate each room/hole with its own "par." Make the biggest room (such as the ballroom space) a par 5 and designate smaller areas, such as an outdoor patio or alcove, as par 3's. Place a small sign at the entrance to each room to tell guests what "par" the room is.
