Planning for you wedding venue is usually a straight-forward affair, though a golf hotel may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, many reasons exist as to why a golf hotel could be the perfect venue for your wedding. Like golf courses themselves, golf hotels tend to be set in the midst of beautiful countryside. As they are welcoming guests from around the world all year long, and sometimes hosting the world’s golfing elite during prestigious tournaments, golf hotels are perfectly placed to offer the impeccable cuisine and service you need on your wedding day.
Most golf hotels are set in beautiful countryside, whether in the rolling hills of Scotland or the stunning coastline of Cornwall.
• Find an area that looks amazing, often perfect for quiet walks with your loved one, dreaming of your future, picking children’s names or simply squeezing one another’s hand as you stroll by the sea. If you like walks, you’ll love a golf hotel.
• Golf courses are often built near the sea. The name for this is links, deriving from the old Scottish language. So if you’d like to hear the waves and feel sand between your toes, there will be plenty of options available!
Golf hotels are among the most beautiful in the country. Golf hotels are often very luxurious with everything you could ever need.
• Golf hotels tend to be more luxurious than your average hotel. This is because they usually attract a high calibre of guest: Tiger Woods is playing the Open and needs a place to stay; Simon and Mike are on a golf holiday to close a business deal together.
• You could arrange golf for you or some of your guests. After all, you are getting married at a golf hotel!
Top class service
Golf hotels can’t be beaten for service. They are used to servicing the most demanding of guests, so their standards are always high. Take, for example, The Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort based in Glasgow. Seve Ballesteros designed the course. If you don’t get a chance to play the course, at least find the time to walk over and marvel at the Waterfall Hole, the course’s 15th. Hitting from above the green, this tricky little par 3 has a 60ft rock face to contend with. On the course or in the hotel, expect to be treated like a king.
And if you needed even more of a reason for a lush marquee setting, remember you’ll usually have the facility to bolt on a marquee to cover all your guests, if required. And if you’d like to consider this alternative then check out Crystal Marquee hire in Surrey; they offer a vast range of marquee services.
