Event Planning 101: Why a Golf Course is a Perfect Event Venue
Have you been looking for the perfect event venue, but nothing has quite stood out?
Event planning can be stressful; it is the sixth most stressful job in the US. When looking for the perfect venue, the space must be large enough, the scenery spectacular, and the price must be right.
Whether you are looking to plan an event, a tournament, or a wedding, there is one place we bet you have not thought of yet. We may be biased, but have you considered a golf course for your next event?
In this event planning guide, we will show you how golf course events may be the solution to all of your problems.
How to Choose an Event Venue
Before we talk about the benefits of a golf course wedding or event, let's go over some things to consider when choosing event venues. When beginning the event planning process, it is essential to start as early as possible. Starting the search sooner will save you from rushing to find a spot at the last minute.
Here are some things to consider when looking for a venue.
How many people will be coming to the event? Will the location be able to fit them all comfortably? You will need to know this for safety reasons if indoors and so people can sit at tables and eat without feeling crowded.
You will also need to know how many people will be attending to know how much food and beverages you will need. Some venue locations may set a food and beverage minimum spending amount, so you will want to have a reasonable estimate of attendees.
Do you have enough parking capacity for all of the guests? Does the venue have a parking lot or valet? If there is not enough parking, you could find a way to offer rideshares, which would be ideal for conference events where interaction among guests is encouraged.
If parking is limited, valet parking could be an excellent option for a wedding. Valet parking is also a perfect option to accommodate any persons who may not walk very far.
Does the venue have a kitchen and offer catering? Any extra services or amenities built into the venue location package, the more cost-effective it will be.
Check to see if the location offers tables with linens, or you would have to provide them yourself. Does the area offer a cleanup crew? These are all critical questions to ask the venue.
Benefits of Having Your Event at a Golf Course
We think you will find that our golf course will solve all of your problems above. Golf courses offer beautiful landscapes, catering by fantastic chefs, and more!
Let's look more closely at some of the benefits of hosting golf course events.
Golf courses are known for their meticulous and well-maintained landscapes. They are usually cut out in the middle of the suburbs or the city and understand how important it is to create an area that feels completely relaxing.
Most people who go to golf clubs go there to get away from the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives. The layouts provide a relaxing retreat that brings you back to nature.
Since the grounds are so well taken care of, this makes it the perfect location for a wedding or any other event. You will be guaranteed to have stunning pictures any time of the day.
Most golf courses have their amazing chefs on the premises. Golf courses pride themselves on only offering the best, and this goes for food as well. Not only will you get a beautiful location, but you will have delicious food included too!
Delicious food on the premises also means that you won't have to go out of your way to find a caterer and coordinate the location and times. Finding a caterer can be very stressful if you need to have them arrive at a site by a specific time. Then they need to find a place to set up.
Golf courses usually have a kitchen and chef on location, saving you a lot of time and money.
Ample Amount of Parking
Golf courses frequently accommodate large groups of people and are prepared to handle the volume of cars for an event or wedding. Parking is often an afterthought, but golf clubs are aware of the number of vehicles arriving and help go over your options.
Both Events at the Same Location
It is common to have the wedding ceremony in one location and the reception in another. When you have a golf course wedding, you will be able to have your ceremony in a stunning spot on the golf course and the reception in the exact location.
You and your guests won't have to drive to another location, which saves a ton of time and prevents confusion.
Whether you are hosting a few people or a hundred people, golf courses have plenty of space to accommodate large amounts of guests. Golf courses also offer indoor and outdoor locations, so there are many options to consider when planning.
People won't feel crowded at a golf course but will instead take in the beautiful scenery and relaxing atmosphere.
If you plan on having a wedding at the golf course, the indoor option offers a place for the wedding party to get ready, as well as a plan B in case of rain.
Golf course staff remain professional at all times and trained in catering and servicing significant events.
