A big part of planning for a wedding is picking out the perfect venue. Choosing the right spot can allow you to have great scenery, ample space, and lots of fun activities for guests during your big day. Golf-course venues are often popular for offering great services and flexibility, and that makes them a top choice for hosting weddings. Here is a look at several reasons why a golf-course venue might just be the perfect wedding destination venue for you.


Many golf-course venues offer beautiful views of lush, green courses that can create a great setting for hosting your big day. Holding an outdoor ceremony on a deck overlooking the course or in beautifully appointed outdoor gazebos can allow you to take full advantage of the beautiful scenery to capture your unforgettable moment while providing ample space for a sizable number of guests. Many golf-course venues also offer a terrace patio where your guests can meet up for cocktail hour after the event while they enjoy the natural surroundings and fresh air. 

In case of bad weather, your guests can quickly move into the banquet room offered at most golf-course venues. From the banquet room, they can still enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of the courses or go into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. With a golf-course wedding venue, you have the flexibility to host everything in the great outdoors or move inside the banquet hall. 

Easy planning and exclusivity

Many folks prefer to book a wedding spot where their event will be the only one going on. Many event centers have multiple spaces and banquets holding different events on any given day, and that can be distasteful if you are going for exclusivity during your big day. Luckily, most clubhouses usually have just one ballroom, ensuring that your wedding will be the only event on the day. 

Picking out a spot to take photos for your wedding can also be a daunting task. Golf-course venues can make the job easier, as they usually offer beautiful outdoor gardens and great views of the courses, which offer a perfect photography backdrop to capture all the unforgettable moments from the big day.

Golf-course wedding venues often also include on-site planners who can help pick out scenic photo locations on the grounds and work with you on the itinerary of the day's event as well as a customized wedding menu to ensure your wedding day is one to remember.
