Believe it or not, there’s much more to golf courses than 18 holes. In addition to practicing your best golf game, you can book a party, plan a Sunday brunch, or even host a wedding at a golf course.
Golf courses can be very unique wedding places, and can be customized to fit your needs. While you may not have thought about having a golf course wedding before, here are some reasons that you may consider it:
- A remote, yet accessible location
Because of the golf balls that are usually flying through the fairways, a golf course can’t be situated in a highly populated area. There’s a need for green space and not a lot of neighbors. Because of this, you’ll likely have peace and quiet on the course or inside without interruptions. Yet, unlike a remote outdoor wedding location, there’s still plenty of parking and other amenities.
- A picture perfect setting
With groundskeepers on staff maintaining the courses, you’ll be surrounded by flawless, vibrant green grass. Even in the winter, when snow may be your backdrop, the white hills and valleys will appear pristine and unspoiled.
- Save money with a one-stop wedding
When planning a wedding, it’s often the case that you’ll need to book separate locations for the ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, and next-day brunch, as well as pay for catering, table and chair rentals, linens, and more.In 2013, brides spent an average of $1,184 on their rehearsal dinners alone, and $457 on morning-after brunch. But when you have a golf course wedding, everything is already on-hand and available to you, which is great for couples on a budget.A golf course has everything you need for a wedding, including exceptional kitchen staff, large indoor banquet spaces, and plentiful outdoor space. Table linens and seating are already stored on-site from previous banquets, so all you’ll need to do is provide other decor if you wish.
It’s likely that the golf club you’ll work with will already have connections with florists, bands, deejays, and other vendors that you may want to contact, so be sure to inquire if you do not have someone in mind already.
Golf courses are often overlooked as wedding destinations, but rest assured, they can offer everything you want and more.
