Definition

Nineteenth hole is a term for the clubhouse bar on a golf course. After golfers complete the eighteen holes on a golf course, they often go to the clubhouse to relax and recap the day, which is how the term got its name.

The nineteenth hole has become an integral part of the golf experience as it allows golfers to converse and share stories, whereas when they play they are focusing on their shots. For some golfers, the main perk of the sport is not the actual golfing but the time at the clubhouse bar.

Example
"You wanna meet up at the nineteenth hole for a drink?
Sure, I'll be on my way once I sink this birdie."
