A Guide to Selecting the Perfect Golf Course Wedding Venue
Did you know there are nearly 10,000 golf courses in the US?
If you have your heart set on getting married on a golf course, you may feel overwhelmed by choices. Country club weddings are renowned for being beautiful and elegant, but how can you choose the right one for your big day?
Keep reading and we’ll help you select the perfect golf course wedding venue.
Consider the Size of Your Wedding
Guest lists have a way of stealthily growing, especially if your parents get involved. A common problem many couples face is finding a wedding venue large enough to accommodate everyone.
On the other hand, perhaps you want a quiet, private venue for a smaller, more intimate wedding. You may find that traditional wedding venues are too large or too impersonal (or both).
One reason why golf course weddings are so popular is because they offer a perfect setting for every type of ceremony. If you’re planning an intimate affair, you could set up outside against an unbeatable backdrop. For larger weddings, choose a venue that offers a grand ballroom and outdoor verandas so there’s plenty of space for everybody.
Consider the Views & Photo Ops
Golf course grounds are maintained year-round, providing a stunning setting no matter the season. As a “blank canvas,” you can decorate with any colors or style you want and it’s guaranteed to look amazing.
Better yet, you won’t have to travel anywhere to get gorgeous wedding photos and videos. The best wedding venues will have plenty of beautiful indoor and outdoor photo ops — even in the winter months!
Consider the Food & Drink Options
After the venue itself, your wedding menu is usually the next-biggest expense. Look for a country club that’s willing to work with your budget and — most importantly — has a reputation for serving amazing food.
Whether you like the idea of a buffet or a plated dinner, the culinary team should be eager to create a customized wedding menu for your big day. You should also consider their beverage packages and ensure there’s an option that suits your preferences.
Remember, the goal is to find a venue that takes care of every detail from setup to cleanup. That way, you don’t have to do anything on your big day except say “I do!”
Consider the Location
A final factor to consider is the country club’s proximity to the nearest city, airport, and hotels. This is especially important if you’re inviting many out-of-town guests who need local accommodation.
You’ll want to choose a golf course that’s close enough to town to be convenient, but isolated enough to provide privacy. Ideally, you can host other events there too, from the bridal shower to the rehearsal dinner to the wedding reception.
The ability to combine everything into one beautiful, convenient location makes a golf course wedding venue the logical choice for your big day.
