Bowling Green Country Club was an absolutely perfect venue and the staff made wedding planning stress free and, frankly, almost easy. The wedding coordinator at Bowling Green Country Club, Phillishia, was a joy to work with. She was available day and night to answer any questions, big or small, and she never made me feel as though I was bothering her. Even on nights, weekends, holidays, she answered my questions within minutes/hours and would ensure me my repeated apologies weren't necessary - that she was there for my questions anytime and was nothing but happy to help. She was nothing but gracious, sweet, friendly, funny, lighthearted, kind and incredibly helpful. The chef, Vito, was an absolute pleasure to work with and custom made our entire menu. The guests raved on and on about how delicious the food was and how gorgeous the venue was. With the slightest bit of instruction regarding menu and food, Phillishia and Vito took our ideas and ran with them and created the perfect space for us to get married and the perfect menu to accompany our wedding. In the days leading up to the wedding, Phillishia had multiple "surprises" for us - such as new gorgeous planters for the outdoor arbor - because she knew I wanted a little extra decoration in the arbor and knew I would be over the moon excited that she had ordered new planters. She took the time to get to know us and our needs and was able to create the perfect ceremony and reception spaces just from listening to us. I honestly cannot say enough times how easy wedding planning was with a coordinator like Phillishia. Not only did she handle everything leading up to the wedding, on the day off she was bustling around at a million miles an hour handling any and everything (and things I hadn't even thought of or asked her to handle - such as immediately making us a plate of food from the buffet when dinner was served). If you are in the process of looking for a wedding venue, I urge you to look no further than BGCC. The venue is gorgeous, inside and out, and I am entirely certain that Phillishia and Vito will make your wedding planning and your big day as special as they made ours. They are absolutely top notch.Sent on 05/08/2019

Fairytale Winter Wedding
I knew I wanted a winter wedding that was not religious, so this meant that I needed an indoor space for both ceremony and reception. I was not too thrilled about having to flip a single room as the mere thought provided me anxiety. I found EVERYTHING i was looking for and more in the Bowling Green Country Club. The space was beautiful and barely needed any additional decor to begin with. It has lots of Victorian charm with beautiful fireplaces, hardwood floors, crown moldings, and pillars! There is also a magical element to both ballrooms (north and south) with the twinkling lights. The event coordinator, Phillishia Phlew is absolutely AMAZING! She is such a warm, kind, and hardworking person who truly aims to please and make your day everything you want it to be! I am SO tremendously grateful to her as she is what really sealed the deal on us booking this place for our special day. Having someone who is so well seasoned in weddings was such a blessing! She was able to aid me in bringing my vision to life! Thank you Phillishia and staff for making our fairytale come true. Love Lindsey and Tony HoldawaySent on 12/05/2019
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Thank you sooooo much!!! Reading this amazing review makes us so happy! We strive to make every "I Do" a dream come true and are so glad we could do just the same for you and Tony!

Dream Fall Wedding at Dream Venue
My new husband and I could not be happier that we chose Bowling Green Country Club for our ceremony and reception venue. When you first start your wedding planning process and venue hunt, there is such a wide range of prices and offerings! Bowling Green was the best value we found anywhere and that by no means meant we compromised the look and feel we wanted for our wedding. On the contrary, we would say Bowling Green is one of the most customizable venues out there (from the look and feel to the delicious menu). They have tons of decor you can borrow which is economical AND it feels awesome to have wedding items be reused and not wasted. My husband and I wanted a Fall vibe for our late November wedding and the venue staff and Phillishia went above and beyond to make our vision a reality. We said we wanted a hot cider bar for our cocktail hour and Phillishia crafted a gorgeous space for it more beautiful than anything we’d seen on Pinterest. Also! This venue has all the linen combos you could imagine and they come with the package! We did wine red napkins, ivory tables, and gold chargers (Phillishia’s idea back when we toured in Summer) and it looked stunning. Both ballrooms are so cozy and one of the main reasons we loved the outdoor ceremony space was the beautiful mountain backdrop. I could go on, but they last thing I’ll add is that every single staff member was so incredibly kind. We had complete confidence that they would host the most important people in our lives well. When our wedding day arrived, our day was so lovely and we didn’t have to stretch our budget to get it. Communicate your wedding vision to this venue and they will make it your reality. Thank you Bowling Green team!Sent on 12/06/2019

Bowling Green Country Club makes a gorgeous backdrop for any lucky couple's Big Day. Bowling Green CC has everything that would make a photographer happy with their beautiful green grounds, mountain views, and a phenomenal staff. Phillisha definitely stands out from the crowd of event coordinators we have worked with. She was funny, charismatic, and on the ball. She was able to keep the flow of the day moving & stress free. For two weeks before our couple's wedding we watched the weather and it was suppose to be a complete rain out. Phillishia did her special Wedding Day Rain Dance & was able to hold off the rain until AFTER the couple's sparkler exit! Not only is she incredible to work with, but she can apparently manipulate the weather! If that isn't a strength you need in a coordinator, we don't know what is! We can't wait to work more with Bowling Green CC, Phillishia, & all the other amazing staff that made our experience there so wonderful! (Save us some extra mushrooms for next time Phillishia!!)
Bowling Green Is one of the premier venues that we work with. Phillishia maintains the utmost professionalism while diligently working to meet her clients needs. Every wedding that we have seen has been gorgeous while also highlighting each events individual styles. I work in another sector of the same industry and I proudly recommend Bowling Green Country Club to my clients.
In an area not generally thought of as having great event elements, Front Royal's Bowling Green Country Club is a gem! Of course, this is also where Selfie Monopoly Photo Booth Station is also located!
