The property presents a variety of inviting settings – slip on your ray bans for some beachy photos under the palm trees, enjoy a tasty s’more by our beachside fire pits, sip on a refreshing cocktail while playing lawn games, dance the night away under the warm glow of our string lights, or kick off your shoes and sink into the Adirondack recliners! There are endless photo opportunities on property where you’ll get the chance to explore the beachfront, estuary and mountain areas with your photographer on our six-seated golf cart.

Local hotels and vacation rentals are within walking distance for your loved ones. Stroll on over to Avila’s local bar, Mr. Ricks, once your reception has concluded for your after party!

Best of the best!

I got married in June 2019 and booked my through Lacee at ABGR. All I can say is, BEST DECISION EVER! Avila and SLO county holds a special place in my heart as both my husband and I are Cal Poly graduates. ABGR is not only the perfect venue because of its location, but it offers so much more than your typical wedding venue. The renovated beach club is a dream, and there are so many options for where to have your ceremony. The black and white dance floor matches any theme. I love that you can go elegant, rustic, beachy, and the venue suits all styles. They offer a lot of seating (which cuts cost for rentals). They offer tables (both cocktail and dining), they allow you to rent their adorable LOVE sign, fire pits, jenga blocks, the list goes on. My guests were so amazed with all the small details that the venue had to offer. I love that you get the view of the beach AND the mountains. You can't really ask for a better backdrop. The bridal suit is SO adorable and is stocked with everything you could need. To top it off, the staff is extremely professional and organized. They were SO helpful and can offer so many suggestions with vendors and etc. I seriously can't say enough about ABGR. Lacee is a true gem and you won't regret working with her. She has an eye for event planning and knows her venue... overall a WIN-WIN!!

Amazing views, great people to work with!

We loved it from the minute we visited it, the people, the town, and the overall feel of the place made us know it was the one! Couldn't have asked for a more perfect location/venue!

The fine folks over at the Avila Beach Golf Resort really go the extra mile to make the venue look beautiful and provide an unforgettable experience for any event. With the ocean as a backdrop, it's hard to beat as far as location. Easy to get to and plenty of parking for your guests. Most events are inside a tent on the lawn but with open sides it gives a nice airy feel. Weather can be unpredictable in the fall just FYI. I do recommend this place though!
