Fore! Yesterday marked the start of the 77th annual Masters Tournament, held at the historic Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
So what does this have to do with weddings? Golf clubs and weddings actually make quite the perfect pair. In fact, golf courses can offer a plethora of perks to couples of all golf abilities–from avid amateurs to casual mini-golfers.
Golf Course Perk #1: Outdoor Beauty, Indoor Elegance
Filled with lush trees, tranquil ponds, and pristine fairways, golf courses offer a rich tapestry of natural beauty. Pair that with enchanting, elegant indoor spaces for the reception, and you’ve got the perfect marriage of rustic romance and sophisticated charm.
Golf Wedding Perk #2: Amazing Photo Ops
From intimate “first look” photos under a sweeping willow tree (above), to goofy shots with the girls (below), the photo ops at a golf course are diverse and plenty. Photographers love the breadth of backdrops available around the grounds, and wedding parties love all the fun spaces for snapshots.
Golf Wedding Perk #3: Destination Charm (Minus the Hefty Price Tag)
Maybe it’s the intimate setting, or the fact that it’s set apart from the surrounding city/area…but there’s just something about a golf course that seems to transport you to another place. And since golf courses exist throughout the country, it’s easy to find one near your hometown. Golf course venues can offer a local alternative to a destination wedding, which can translate to higher guest attendance and lower costs. It’s a win-win!
