All guys need a “man-cation”. Guys need to bond just like the ladies do. They seek their guy talk and friendly competition more than one might think. Sometimes men don’t always form relationships as easily as women.  Male bonding is important and a crucial fact for a well-rounded male.  Some might say that women bond with conversations and men bond by doing. Guys’ trips create stories and memories that will last a lifetime.

Whistling Straights, Wisconsin

There are many trips to plan for a group of men. Golf is one of them! Golf is a popular trip to plan because it’s somewhat easy. They don’t want to cram seven activities, 3 dinners, 12 outfits and a glam team into one long weekend just for the gram (you know, Instagram). Golf is the perfect outing for a weekend away for just the boys!

A typical weekend environment might include a round of 27-36 holes a day, dinner at a local hot spot, and maybe a poker game before bed. All while engaging in the camaraderie with each other.

These golf outings aren’t just regular neighborhood golf at your local watering hole where everyone knows the car you drive and your kid’s birthday. Depending on the courses you choose, these trips are luxury.

Signature golf courses require walking. No carts allowed. The good news is that most of the resorts provide you with a caddy for hire. You can ship your clubs using Ship Sticks for hassle free travel and have them ready for you when you check in. Assign your different teams for the weekend and enjoy some laughs. Bring your bug spray, because you will all be following each other into the woods looking for your lost balls.
