I am so thankful that we chose ABGR to host our wedding ceremony and reception. The venue staff were incredibly helpful, responsive, and accommodating to our needs throughout the entire planning process. This venue doesn't nickel and dime you very every last detail and we felt as though we got a tremendous value for all that we wanted on our big day. Plus you really cannot beat the charming golf course / beach setting. Thank you ABGR for helping us create the wedding of our dreams :)Sent on 11/08/2017

Amazing beautiful venue - great staff
I got married at this venue a little under three months ago. I emailed the venue and was immediately sent information from Lacee, the Sales Manager. After a few back and forth emails with Lacee, my then fiancé and I scheduled a tour with Lacee and immediately knew this was the venue for us. The proximity to the ocean really sealed the deal for us. After the next several months I planned my wedding and worked closely with Lacee to bring my vision to life. I liked that I was able to bring in my own caterer, and selected Popolo Catering off the list of preferred vendors.Sent on 11/14/2018

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!
