Congratulations, now you are planning the most important day of your life! And now, this is where the stress begins. Has looking at wedding venue tips got you feeling a little down?

So you're looking for the wedding venue of your dreams, but you feel a little stumped. Wouldn't it be easier to have everything in one place?

Well, it's time to think about a golf course wedding venue! Planning how to have a wedding at a golf course is much easier than you think.

Keep reading our guide to learn about five reasons you should choose a golf course for your wedding.

1. One Location For Everything

With a golf course wedding, convenience comes with the packages. First, you won't have to worry about parking. Golf courses already have big parking lots to accommodate their guests as it is.

A golf course wedding venue has all the parts you need already built-in. You can have your ceremony, pictures, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place.

So you won't have to worry about getting everyone where they need to be or valet hassles once they get there. Not to mention:

  • Your belongings stay in one place
  • You work with the same staff
  • You have more time with your guests
  • You don't have to worry about setting up or cleaning up
  • You can have your hair and makeup done while you're there

A golf course also gives you the perfect backdrop for fantastic wedding pictures. You can use the bridges, trees, grass, waterfalls, or any part of the course for your photographs.

You can even visit the golf course before your wedding day to choose your locations for pictures on the big day. Another cool thing you will be able to drive around the course with golf carts for your big day.

2. Outdoor and Indoor Options

Golf clubs offer the best both inside and outside. There is the natural beauty of nature within the perfectly manicured greens and sprawling hills.

You can have an outdoor wedding at a golf course almost any time of the year. The outdoor space is perfect for fall, and you can even base your colors on the orange and red shaves of the leaves.

The greens will be primed and ready to go making your wedding glow with beautiful lush shades of green in the summertime.

Golf clubs usually have new clubhouses or large ballrooms with fantastic views of the golf course. So if the weather chases you inside, you will have no trouble finding elegant indoor accommodations on short notice!

3. Catering Packages

Think about it. Golf courses are already designed to give their existing members everything they need while they're there.

Because of this, golf clubs will already have amazing chefs and bakers on staff that can prepare your food with experience and style.

If you have a venue with a trained chef already on site, then you don't have to go searching around for catering services.

Golf courses often have all-inclusive packages with many price ranges you can select. You can go simple with a cocktail hour and an open bar or go for a full buffet-style dinner.

Golf courses will often have preset three-course menu options available and will cater to your custom requests as well.

4. A Wedding Planner and Professional Staff

Guess what? A golf course wedding comes with a wedding coordinator! All golf course weddings offer wedding planning assistance to make sure your wedding day goes smoothly.

You will meet with the wedding planner to talk about what you see for your wedding. They will ask you about the ceremony, reception, food, and drink preferences. Then you will go into centerpieces, cakes, linens, and colors.

Beyond the wedding coordinator, golf clubs have a host of other professional staff that will work together for your wedding day.

A golf club is already in the hospitality business, and they are not simply a vendor you are buying something from.

Golf clubs will go out of their way to customize menus, decorations, and ceremony requests for you. Not only that, but they will go out of their way to treat your guests with courtesy and respect.

Golf clubs are used to offering an exclusive experience and will be sure to go the extra mile for you.

5. You Save Money

If you have to book multiple venues for your wedding, like a church and a dance hall, then that's all you get.

Then you have to hunt down all the extras like catering, flowers, photographers, decorations, and setting up. Then before you know it, your budget is through the roof.

A massive benefit to golf club weddings is they will often come with many of these extra services already included. Catering and kitchen staff are usually standard. And most golf club venues that book a lot of weddings offer all the additional services like a photographer.

And even if they don't offer these services directly, they often will have partnerships with these service providers in the community. This partnership means you will be more likely to score a considerable discount for using who the golf club recommends.
