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!!Sent on 09/13/2019

We LOVE Avila Beach Golf Resort. Your staff is absolutely fabulous, and everything about the venue is great! Our team feels at home when they are on property. Thank you for providing the Central Coast with an AMAZING venue!
Avila Beach Golf Resort is truly an amazing venue! If you're looking for the perfect beach wedding this a warm, inviting feel this is definitely the place for you. Another spectacular bonus: Lacee, the venues coordinator is such a pleasure to work with! She is sweet, flexible, and accommodating. This really is a perfect venue all the way around! I look forward to events there in the future! -Kim ~ Flowers by Kim
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!
