Welcome to Manchester, home of the best night out in the northwest. A chap can really push the boat out in the bright lights of Deansgate and the Northern Quarter - and that means he needs a jolly good jolt of fresh air and exercise on Saturday afternoon! Fortunately for you lot, Manchester is one of the first places in the UK to offer the civilised delights of footgolf, the latest must-have activity for the stag do about town.
This ingenious sport takes the finest elements of football and golf, and combines them in one winning package. No-one has to run around like an idiot, wondering if they'll hold onto their lunch after such a heavy night: and there's none of that fiddling about with nine-irons either. A gentleman simply kicks his ball from behind the tee, waits for it to stop rolling, and repeats until he's sunk it in the football-sized hole!
You're encouraged to wear proper golfing attire for a round of footgolf, chaps, so let's not let the side down. Argyle patterns, tweedy plus fours and ridiculous jumpers are the order of the day. We'd also like to see caps and visors. The only thing you can't have on are golf shoes or football boots. Trainers only, please, to keep the green intact.
Footgolf is the perfect pastime for a stag do that wants exercise without all that running. Fore!
In a nutshell:
Fantastically fun combination of football and golf
Beautiful golf course just north of Manchester city centre
