Preparation is the key to success… and that starts in your kitchen the night before your next big round of golf.
Perfect meals for the night before a big golf round

Get prepped for your next big round with one of these excellent night-before recipes…

Burger and fries
Yes, even a burger and fries can be healthy enough for that all-important pre-game meal! But this isn’t your average burger and fries. Swap out a beef burger for lean, grilled chicken and mix up your fries game by chipping a few sweet potatoes and oven baking them with plenty of herbs and seasoning. Serve with a colourful side salad for an extra handful of goodness.

Sweet jacket potato
It might sound like the ultimate in student cuisine, but a jacket potato can be a great carb-fuelled meal to tuck into the night before a big tournament. To change things up a little, opt for a sweet potato and fill it with your favourite toppings – whether that’s the classic tuna and sweetcorn mayonnaise, or something more exotic like chicken, roasted grapes, feta and spinach

Salmon spaghetti
Grilled fish is a great source of protein – and makes an excellent base for any pre-game meal. Salmon’s a great option, with high levels of vitamins, minerals and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Grill up a salmon steak seasoned with herbs and spices and mix into spaghetti with courgette and sweetcorn for a light but filling meal that’ll tee you up perfectly for the first hole.

Perfect meals for the night before a big golf round
Mediterranean chicken pasta
Ask any professional athlete their standard pre-game routine and chances are they’ll come back with a recipe that centres on chicken and pasta. But if you feel like making things a little fancier, why not try to infuse some Mediterranean flavours into the dish? Roasted vegetables (courgette, peppers, aubergines, etc) mixed with grilled chicken, mozzarella and a drizzle of pesto is our favourite.

Mackerel tacos
Fancy adding a little Mexican spice to your pre-game rituals? Why not try putting together some mackerel tacos? Smoked mackerel – readily available in most supermarkets – is not only delicious but also a great source of goodness. Shred up some mackerel and mix with cherry tomatoes, coriander and Mexican seasoning, spoon into soft tacos and top with guacamole, sour cream and a sprinkling of grated cheese.
