Tips for Hosting a South Florida Golf Course Wedding

Feb 20, 2014

Congratulations, you’re getting married! Now that your wedding is in your foreseeable future, you are probably thinking of where on earth you want to have your ceremony and reception. Whether you are a golfing couple or not, a golf course can be a perfectly idyllic place for your wedding. With rolling acres of bright and well-kept greens, a golf course can certainly be a picturesque place to say “I do.” Here are some of our top tips for planning a South Florida golf course wedding:

Learn about reception capacity. Once you get your guest list determined, you will know what size group you need to accommodate for.

Research menus. At Deer Creek Country Club, you can opt for a daytime ceremony with a brunch reception, or an evening ceremony with a dinner, as well as a luncheon or a buffet. Cocktails and drink menus are customizable to your unique golf course wedding needs.

Check out the indoor and outdoor spaces. Depending on the season, you might want the ceremony outdoors. Check out available areas of the course where you can have the ceremony and reception and see what works best with the wedding you want to have. You should also consider if there is an extra area where you want to have the rehearsal dinner.

Is there parking available? What about nearby accommodations? Following a wedding reception with alcohol, you want guests to be able to leave cars and easily take a shuttle or cab to a nearby hotel.

While the list of to-dos can seem endless leading up to your golf course wedding, these are some things that can help ensure that you choose the right golf course for your wedding ceremony & reception!
