Wedding weekends naturally come with a great deal of fanfare, events and celebration with much of it focused around the bride and her bridesmaids. However, the groom and his groomsmen are just as much a part of the wedding weekend celebration, and we do not want to forget about them. At Pursell Farms, we have ample activities and ideas to keep the groomsmen occupied all weekend long.
Pursell Farms is home to the FarmLinks Golf Club, the world’s first and only research and demonstration golf course and has been ranked as the #1 Best Course you can play in Alabama 8 years in a row (2011-2019)! Naturally, golf is the go-to option for the groom and groomsmen to enjoy while they are here. Have them play 9 or 18 holes on Friday afternoon before the rehearsal or Saturday morning before pictures. You’ll be glad you kept them occupied
- SPORTING CLAYS AT ORVIS® SHOOTING GROUNDS
Home to the only ORVIS® Shooting grounds in the South, the 14-station sporting clays course is a great option for the guys to have some fun while busting some sporting clays. Pressed for time? The 5-Stand is another great option to squeeze in an abbreviated version of the full course. The ORVIS® clubhouse even has shotguns available for rental and ammo for purchase.
- UTV MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE
Surprise the guys with a 2-hour UTV Mountain Experience! Race to the mountaintop, splash through creeks and enjoy being outdoors in a John Deere® UTV that can comfortable seat up to 4 riders per vehicle.
- LATE NIGHT AT OLD TOM’S PUB
Keep the wedding festivities going into the night at Old Tom’s Pub. Have a Scotch at the bar, play pool and shuffleboard or sit around the outdoor fire pit to wind down the night.
- MEAL DELIVERY
When all else fails, food is a sure-fire way to keep the groomsmen happy! Before all the wedding day festivities begin, have some loaded tater tots, soft pretzels with beer cheese or hot wings delivered to their accommodations for them to snack. If your wedding happens to fall on a football weekend, this will certainly keep them entertained with their own mini-tailgate.
