Great Golf Desserts

Fore! Whether you are a golf fiend, play a casual round on the weekend, or are just starting out, you will certainly enjoy this gallery featuring some of my favorite desserts, all of which incorporate an element from the game of golf. 

Recently, I featured my favorite Football Desserts for Game Day, and this time around I thought putting greens, tees, and sand traps would make for some pretty darn cute dessert features. Golf is one of the world’s oldest sports with a huge following worldwide, so it’s no shock that many cakes, cookies, and other delicious pastries have been created to honor the game.

If you are looking to impress, these options would be perfect for a theme birthday, father's day, retirement party or just to indulge in after a great round of golf! Get inspired by this round up of creative golf-themed desserts and get ready to par-tee!
