The coming together of two individual souls to form a perfect union is a very special and sacred moment. The staff at Bowling Green Country Club takes pride in the fact that we have been able to help couples start their life journey together for over 30 years.

If you are looking for the perfect venue to seal your vows, consider our outdoor wedding arbor that offers panoramic views of the golf course and majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. If an indoor venue is more your style or if you just need a nice setting for your reception, choose from one of our two grand ballrooms, each is equipped with beautiful hardwood floors for dancing, and both are spacious enough to accommodate up to 350 of your closest family and friends.

Bowling Green takes great pride in offering a versatile menu that incorporates our very own contemporary twist on some old Virginia favorites. Want to add your own personal touch? You may choose to work directly with our wedding team and executive chef to design a custom menu that suits your pallet.

Whether you choose to commit at our breathtaking arbor with the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backdrop, or simply have your reception in one of our two grand ballrooms, our new management team is by your side every step of the way to ensure that all your wedding day dreams will become the foundation to a memorable life journey.

I had my ceremony and reception at Bowling Green Country Club. They were fantastic! Leah and her staff were responsive, attentive, and flexible. We wanted to have an outside ceremony but the weather was too unstable, as they were calling for storms. The staff handled everything flawlessly even with the up to the minute change! This place is a hidden pearl, and you are guaranteed to have a successful wedding!

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at Bowling Green and it was a fantastic experience. Leah, the manager, was fantastic to work with and was great with communication. She responded quickly to any question or request I had which really helped with my stress level! The food was wonderful and I had lots of compliments from my guests on the food. Would recommend Bowling Green to anyone!

I had my ceremony and reception here at Bowling Green and I couldn't be happier! They truly did a wonderful job. As a clueless bride, they guided me through the whole process and made sure I had all my questions answered. My mother wanted some specific things done and they were so accommodating in making things happen. On the day of, the staff was extremely professional and helped ease my stress! Every staff I came in contact with was so kind and attentive. I really can't thank them enough for the excellent service.

The setting there is so beautiful, my photos turned out amazing! The outdoor ceremony site is absolutely breathtaking. The south ballroom (where the reception was held) was gorgeous as well, the windows gave a beautiful view, especially with the light pouring in! The ballroom is so large, it easily accommodated my 100 & some guests, while providing an extra large dance floor where all of us had a blast dancing! I was so happy, the whole day was perfect. They went above and beyond my expectations and they truly take care of you. Not only was this venue awesome, but it is a far better value than other venues.

I can't recommend Bowling Green Country Club highly enough! Brian (the GM/event manager) and his staff were AMAZING to work with. Brian made the whole process so easy and stress-free. It rained the day of our wedding and Brian met my bridesmaids and I at our car with umbrellas so our hair/makeup wouldn't be messed up. Later he dried off a golf cart for us so that we could take the break in the weather to get some pictures, going so far to drive us out to a photo spot on the golf course. They are so thoughtful and truly go above and beyond to make sure your day is special and wonderful!

Bowling Green Country Club is THE best place to have your wedding reception in the area! I had mine at the South Ballroom, and not only did the space look beautiful on my wedding day, but the service provided was phenomenal. Brian Jones is an excellent banquet manager and was willing to cater to my needs from the very first day I went to see the venue. My husband and I were thrilled with the way our wedding reception turned out, and we know that it would not have been that way if it wasn't for choosing such a perfect venue for our perfect day.

Bowling Green was the PERFECT place for my wedding reception! I had never heard of it before I began planning and had my doubts that such a place that relatively no one had heard of would be a great reception spot. Boy was I wrong! From day one of planning until the big day itself the staff, especially Brian, was extremely attentive. Our experience was phenomenal and the facility proved to be everything and more my guests could want. Most importantly though, having our reception at BGCC was extremely affordable although you would never know it from the appearance of the place. We were able to offer our guests open bar, a large dinner buffet and more because the prices there are so reasonable. Definitely check it out!!!!

Brian and the staff at Bowling Green are outstanding, the most helpful crew you could ask for. Guests are still telling me how wonderful the food and service was. The Venue was beautiful and the rain even held out for us to at least get married outside, and when I thought the rain ruined all my pictures Brian came up with a wonderful idea and brought us to the other ballroom and let us get pictures there. I already have two other friends getting married here this year because of me :)

My husband and I are very pleased with the service Bowling Green Country Club provided us on our "Big Day" (09.17.2011). Brian Jones, the event coordinator, was nothing but outstanding through out this process. He guided us on all the details, making sure we were on schedule and that the day went by as smooth as possible. A big THANK YOU to the wait staff, so caring and attentive. After the ceremony, our bartender greeted my husband and I with a cocktail, almost like they read our minds haha and made sure all guests were happy and satisfied through out the evening! It is essential to have a great team to support and help you put together such a large event! We can not thank you enough Brian! Love always, Camila & Shawn.

It turned out to be a beautiful day with lots of sun and wonderful food. Service is great. The wedding arbor at Bowling Green South is a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for your wedding ceremony! I would highly recommend.

Brian was absolutely amazing during the whole planning process. When my husband and I went to look at the venue we fell in love and knew that was where we wanted to get married. We picked the North Clubhouse and that was when all the walls were torn down during renovation. We got so many compliments on how beautiful it was! You cannot pick a better place, especially for the price! The awesome and friendly staff will make your big day one you'll never forget!

Our Bowling Green experience was fantastic! It turned out better than we could have ever imagined. The staff is friendly and professional. They did an excellent job setting everything up and servicing us and our guests throughout the whole event. We live in the DC Metro Area where everything is so highly priced. Bowling Green fit our budget for a venue and had several other options to help us stay within our budget for the ceremony and reception. The food was great and everyone loved it!

Kudos to Brian Jones, the General Manager at Bowling Green Country Club! He was behind all the planning and even was there to help with little details before the ceremony and during the reception.

I definitely, without a second thought, recommend Bowling Green Country Club for soon-to-be newlyweds! They have everything you could ask for and more.

Our wedding was supposed to be on December 19,2009 but of course this would be the December that we had a massive snow storm. Before the snow even hit thought, Brian and the Bowling Green staff were ready for it. He had already had his chef stay in Front Royal at a hotel so they would be able to make it and he had made sure there would be plenty off staff to serve, shovel, and plow if the snow came down. The next morning we woke up to 12 inches on the ground and it was still falling. Due to the conditions of the road and the growing accumulation of the snow, we had to postpone the wedding and Brian and the staff of Bowling Green were flexible and allowed us to do just that. Then Sunday came and the roads still weren't great. Brian was worried about people being about to get to the site but between him and our photographer they were able to get Brian and his chef to Bowling Green and start setting up. They allowed us to be flexible with time since it was taking some guests a while to get there due to the snow and even me (the bride) was running behind because we had to wait for a 4 wheel drive vehicle to come get us. Brian and the whole staff had worked so hard to make sure the wedding went off and that it was great event regardless of all the snow outside. I would highly recommend anyone to get married or really hold any function at Bowling Green! I can never thank Brian and the whole staff of Bowling Green enough for making our wedding possible even with 20 inches of snow on the ground!

Brian was worried about people being about to get to the site but between him and our photographer they were able to get Brian and his chef to Bowling Green and start setting up. They allowed us to be flexible with time since it was taking some guests a while to get there due to the snow and even me (the bride) was running behind because we had to wait for a 4 wheel drive vehicle to come get us. Brian and the whole staff had worked so hard to make sure the wedding went off and that it was great event regardless of all the snow outside. I would highly recommend anyone to get married or really hold any function at Bowling Green! I can never thank Brian and the whole staff of Bowling Green enough for making our wedding possible even with 20 inches of snow on the ground! Read less

Our reception at Bowling Green Country Club was everything we were hoping for! The club manager, Brian, met with us several times to go over the layout of the room, the menus and the order of events for the reception. Brian was very detail-oriented and offered suggestions and alternatives every step of the way. The facility itself was clean, well-organized, and definitely was less expensive than some other venues in the area. Unfortunately it rained on our wedding day, or we would have held the ceremony at the beautiful arbor outside. The staff was extremely competent, polite, and helpful. They coordinated seamlessly with the other vendors involved with the reception. Many guests commented on the excellent food. I highly recommend Bowling Green for any type of event!

Bowling Green was a wonderful place to have wedding reception. The venue was very flexible about everything and they made it very easy to plan the reception entirely. The General Manager Brian Jones was especially flexible. He allowed me to come to the property many times to get a visual of my reception as well as answer any questions I might have had. It was a great experience and I was very pleased with all parts of the planning up to the end of the reception. My husband and I couldnt' have asked for anything more.

Bowling Green Country Club is amazing! The views of the golf course/mountains are so gorgeous and Brian is so helpful with everything- and even has great ideas! Everyone also complimented the place and the staff (servers, bartenders, etc) were superb! The venue holds a large amount of people and has beautiful hardwood floors, windows and chandeliers. The price is reasonable also. I wish that we could have had a taste test of the food options- Luckily the food was GREAT but it was def something that I was nervous about beforehand. The venue does have a to-go taste testing but its only available if a large event occurs that is serving similar food you request. But again the venue is amazing for both ceremony and reception!

Beautiful venue at a great value. We had our ceremony and reception at Bowling Green South, because we loved the outdoor arbor. Brian (the general manager) was fantastic to work -- very upfront and helpful every step of the way. He was very good at thinking of all of the little details, patiently answered all of our questions, and even walked us through the rehearsal, too.

We fell in love with Bowling Green as soon as we saw it. Our wedding was at the South Club House. The outside site for the ceremony was absolutely perfect. Fall definately seemed the best time to take advantage of all the great flowers they have there. We got married on October 10, 2010 and the weather was perfect. The golf course also provides an amazing background for pictures. The South clubhouse was the perfect spot and provided lots of room for dancing and eating.

Brian also helped setup tee times for the groom and father of the groom on the day of the wedding. Brian was very helpful throughout the process. The food was amazing as well. We enjoyed the prime rib and turkey. Everyone complimented on the mixed veggie side, even people who didn't enjoy vegetables. We also selected the pasta side and mashed potatoes.

The rest of the bowling green staff was wonderful as well and very professional. We couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding!! We would highly recommend Bowling Green to anyone wanting a place from the busy metro area. There's also things locally for guests to do before and after the wedding.

We made an entire weekend out of our event with family and friends.

Brian and his team were great to work with. They made it a stress-free day for us. The venue was beautiful and with many locations for unique photos. As someone else said, my only complaint would be that the wait staff was too efficient, clearing plates before people were finished. (we had family join us at the fire place for a photo, 20 feet from their table, while people were getting cupcakes; the cupcakes were cleared from my family's table without them even taking a bite from them). But, if this is my biggest complaint, then I consider the day a complete success and would recommend the venue for a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere.

My husband and I couldn't be happier with our wedding at Bowling Green. We were schedule for an outdoor wedding at the Arbor and reception in the South Ballroom, but due to rain moved the ceremony inside. Despite this little hiccup, the ceremony was beautiful! Mostly due to a beautiful location and the awesome flexibility of Brian and his team. He was fantastic to work with and willing to do whatever was needed to make the day go smoothly. He is a very busy guy, thought, so sometimes it took a few emails or phone calls to reach him, but it was always worth the wait. The only negative thing I had to say is that they don't have food tastings; you pick up food on days where it is already being cooked for another wedding so unfortunately we weren't able to tasted their entire selection. However, the food was AMAZING and all the guests complimented us on how good it was. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Bowling Green again.
