Drive Shack Raleigh is a great place for a group—and there’s no need to be an avid golfer to have fun. The interactive golf complex, a 65,000-square-foot facility that includes 96 golf bays, a full-service restaurant, rooftop bar, more than 300 televisions, an arcade area, and meeting rooms, is designed to cater to big groups. Drive Shack allows guests and groups to rent bays by the hour, giving them access to wait service, unlimited driving range balls, full sets of TaylorMade golf clubs, a climate-controlled seating area, televisions, and more.


Wine & Design is a favorite among private parties of five or more. It’s BYOB (bring your own bottle), and you’re welcome to bring additional food and beverages to enjoy. The two-hour painting class led by local artists allow guests to release their inner van Gogh while enjoying a nice glass of wine with fellow guests. If you’re looking for another type of BYOB class, book a group outing at Taste Buds Kitchen, where groups can dive into an adult cooking class and learn new recipes, including handmade pasta, classic French cuisine, Mediterranean favorites, and more.


TreeRunner Adventure Park and Go Ape Zipline and Adventure Park provide hours of high-flying fun for adventurous groups. Strap on a harness and tackle a treetop ropes course where you can scale nets and ladders, walk across tightropes, zip through green-leaf canopies, swing on ropes like Tarzan, and enjoy an epic view of Mother Nature. Billed as the premier aerial adventure park in the Raleigh area, TreeRunner features 70 exciting obstacles, three difficulty levels, and seven different courses. The park can host groups large and small, ranging from 10 to 300 people. The parks suggest you plan for at least three hours for check-in, orientation, and climbing fun.
