Clooney's golfing party
09:30 27 April 2005
George Clooney is planning a drink-fuelled golfing holiday with six friends.
The heartthrob star and half-a-dozen longterm pals - dubbed 'The Boys' - will spend the summer touring golf ranges around America in a rented bus filled with alcohol.
A source said: "They're going to play one course after another.
"They're bringing their woods and their irons - and a lot of ice."
'The Boys', who have met for a weekly barbeque at the heartthrob's lavish Hollywood pad for the past 12 years, have been organising the male bonding session for a decade.
The group, which includes Broadway actor Richard Kind and a host of Clooney's friends from before he was famous, last holidayed together nine years ago in Las Vegas.
The 'Ocean's Twelve' star admitted at the time that partying was more of a priority than hitting the golf courses.
He confessed: "It's a kind of sacred beer-fuelled walkabout.
"None of us are good golfers. This is a time for The Boys to be together and forget about their jobs, a time to hang out."
Clooney, who is yet to decide their holiday destination, added: "We always end in Vegas - we never start there because you have to wash your liver out afterwards."
