Swing into Spring: How to Host the Ultimate Golf-Themed Party with Martin’s

April 1, 2024
5 min. read

Springtime brings with it the return of blooming flowers, warmer weather, and, for many, the eagerly anticipated golf season. What better way to celebrate the first major men’s golf tournament of the year than by hosting your very own golf-themed party? With a nod to the prestigious greens of Augusta and the culinary delights found around the course, Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls & Bread is here to help you elevate your gathering from a simple get-together to a hole-in-one event.


Set the Scene for Success

First, transform your space into a golf enthusiast’s dream. Think green tablecloths to mimic the look of the fairways, place flags (and some azaleas) in flower pots to create your own mini course, and don’t forget to set up a small putting area where guests can swing a club. Use golf balls and tees as table decor, and consider naming your dishes after famous golfers or iconic courses for that extra touch of authenticity.


Dress Code: Golf Chic

Encourage your guests to arrive in their best golf attire. Think polos, visors, and argyle socks. It’s a fun way to immerse everyone in the theme and makes for great photo opportunities.


A Menu Worthy of a Champion

Now, onto the highlight of any party—the food. Inspired by the tournament’s iconic and affordable concession stand offerings, Martin’s brings you a menu that’s sure to have your guests feeling like they’ve just walked off the 18th green! Whether you’re watching from the comfort of your living room or dreaming of next year’s trip to the greens, these recipes allow you to bring a taste of the tournament home.

Just as every golfer has their go-to club, fans of the tournament have their must-eat favorites that no visit to the course would be complete without. From the savory delight of a Classic Pimento Cheese Sandwich to the refreshing indulgence of Peach Ice Cream, each dish has its own story to tell. And what better way to celebrate that tradition than by bringing it into your home with Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls & Bread?

Let’s take a closer look at these tee time treats:

1.      Classic Pimento Cheese Sandwich:

A timeless classic, these Pimento Cheese Sandwiches on Martin’s Butter Bread are a nod to golf’s Southern roots. To prepare from scratch: combine regular and sharp shredded cheddar cheese, diced pimentos, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard in a food processor until smooth, then spread between two slices of Martin’s Old-Fashioned Real Butter Bread.


2.      Egg Salad Sandwich:

Another staple of the golfing world, our Egg Salad Sandwich recipe brings the creamy, comforting flavors of this tournament classic right to your kitchen. This simple recipe can be prepared with just a few ingredients: hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, Martin’s 100% Whole Wheat Potato Bread, and your choice of seasonings or additional mix-ins such as diced celery or onions.


3.      Bar-B-Que Sandwich:

Pulled Pork with Peach BBQ Sauce

Elevate your game day with our Pulled Pork Sandwich, featuring a peach BBQ sauce that’s a not-so-subtle nod to the tournament’s home state. For an easy party meal, cook the pulled pork ahead of time using a simple slow cooker method. You can also prepare the homemade BBQ sauce and cabbage-pepper slaw the day before or the morning of and refrigerate until ready to use.


4.      Chicken Salad Sandwich:

For those looking for a lighter option that doesn’t skimp on flavor, our Classic Chicken Salad Sandwich is sure to hit the spot. For an easy low-prep option, use chopped rotisserie chicken, mayonnaise, celery, onion, Dijon mustard, and salt and pepper, piled onto Martin’s Old-Fashioned Real Butter Bread.


5.      Classic Fried Chicken Sandwich:

A modern twist on a classic, our Fried Chicken Sandwich recipe is perfect for those looking to indulge in a bite of comfort food between the front and back nine. With a little bit of prep and a whole lot of flavor, you’ll have a restaurant-worthy dish to delight your guests.


6.      Peach Ice Cream Sandwich:

Cool down with our Peach Ice Cream Sandwich, a tribute to Georgia’s favorite fruit. To make: use a high-speed blender to combine peach-flavored ice cream, frozen peaches, and heavy whipping cream until smooth. While your ice cream mixture re-freezes, prepare your sandwich “cookies” by splitting apart Martin’s Sweet Dinner Potato Rolls and sugar-coating the outsides of the rolls. Finally, shape the ice cream into small disks and serve sandwiched between the top and bottom halves of the dinner rolls. Enjoy!


7.      Breakfast Sandwich:

And for early tee times, start your day right with our Customizable Breakfast Sandwich, ensuring you’re fueled up and ready to follow the day’s play. Use your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham/Canadian bacon, your preferred cheese, and your favorite egg preparation, and build a custom sandwich using Martin’s Slider Potato Rolls.


Tip: For best results—be sure to serve these dishes alongside a pitcher of ice-cold lemonade or Arnold Palmers.

Activities to Keep the Party on Course

Aside from a mini putting green, consider setting up a closest-to-the-pin challenge or a mini-golf course around your home or backyard. Offer prizes for hole-in-ones or the longest putt to keep the competition lively.


Another Culinary Tradition of the Greens:

Embrace the tradition of enjoying a hot dog “at the turn” by setting up a hot dog stand with all the fixings. It’s a fun nod to a beloved golf course practice and ensures your guests have the energy to keep the party swinging. (Tip: Be sure to incorporate Martin’s Long Potato Rolls for the ultimate win!)

With these tips and a menu inspired by the iconic eats of the golfing world, your party is sure to be the talk of the clubhouse.
