The Ultimate Guide to Golf Par-Tee Food!

I’ve filled orders for quite a few golf theme birthday parties over the years, and I’m always impressed by the cute puns that my customers come up with for their party foods! But, even though many of those parties are featured here on my blog, I realized there’s no single source for future golf party planners to get ideas. How easy would THAT be, to just pick and choose from a list instead of looking all over for ideas?! Well, future golf party planners, you’re in luck! I’ve dug through every golf party I’ve ever worked on to create Chickabug’s Ultimate Guide to Golf Par-Tee Food! : )

The table tents shown in all of the pictures were made using an editable instant download DIY printable file that is available here in my shop! Also pictured: instant download DIY printable signs and golf theme water labels.

Golf party invitations, stickers, water labels, iron-ons, thank you cards, and party printables are all available here!


BOGIE Hoagies – sub sandwiches! Put a golf tee in the top to hold the sandwiches together.

CLUB Sandwiches – any type of sandwich will do, here. To make them extra-cute, put a golf tee in the top, or wrap the sandwiches in scrapbooking paper and close the paper with a sticker.

Peanut PUTTER Sandwiches

Pizza by the SLICE

BIRDIE Fingers – chicken fingers

BIRDIE Nuggets – chicken nuggets

BIRDIE Wings – chicken wings

BIRDIE Bites – anything bite-sized will do!

Irons – meat

PUTT PUTT Pasta Salad

BUNKER Balls – meatballs or cheese balls

LINKS in a Blanket – pigs in a blanket

Mac and “TEES”

MULLIGAN Meatballs – I’ll admit, I looked this one up: “A mulligan, in a game, happens when a player gets a second chance to perform a certain move or action.”

CHIP SHOT Dogs – hot dogs or pigs in a blanket

PAR and Beans – pork and beans, or just plain beans will work too

Veggies & Sides

DIVOTS – green crudités such as green peppers, broccoli and celery

Flag Sticks – carrot and celery sticks

FORE fruit kebabs

Fruit SLICES – fresh fruit or gummy fruit candies

CADDY Buffet



SAND TRAPS – make Rice Krispie treats, frost half of each square with white frosting, and dip them green sprinkles (the green is the “grass” and the Rice Krispie part is the “sand”).

Chocolate CHIP cookies

BUNKER Balls – cake balls or cake pops



“Get in the Cup” Cakes

Masters Green Jackets – make cookies in the shape of little green jackets – so cute!


Iced TEE

Sweet TEE

Arnold Palmers – tea and lemonade mixed together

BACK NINE Beverage Bar


The 19th Hole – beer for the grown-ups!

And you should always say…

      Hi Kim! After you purchase the DIY digital file you'll print the buffet cards on heavy white card stock - a thick type of paper you can purchase at most craft and office supply stores. It's very easy and I'm always here to help! : )

    What golf term could be used for a birthday cake? I saw your idea about the masters jacket cookies and thought of having a cake made like that or do cupcakes put together in the shape of a jacket and all iced together... Im throwing my husband a golf themed surprise birthday party. Thanks!

      I haven't heard a good one for a birthday cake - I don't think most people use a food label for a cake, to be honest with you!
