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

Love love loved this venue!
I’m not quite sure where to begin when there are so many amazing things to say. I’ll start with the venue. We had our reception and wedding at the South building. The arbor outside is beautifully decorated this time of year with all the flowers and greenery. They do a fantastic job on the upkeep too. The morning of our wedding, the staff was outside adding fresh soil and making sure the flowers looked their best after it had rained the day before. The inside is equally as beautiful with the tables all decorated in white and the window drapery with lights. By itself, there wasn’t much decorating we needed to do other than the tables themselves. The staff made us feel at home throughout our whole wedding. They made sure we were always taken special care of and if we needed anything at all, just to ask. And like many before us, no review is complete without mentioning Phillishia. She is hands down the best and made the whole experience completely stress free. From the endless emails asking questions to stopping by in person, she was always available and more than happy to help. She is a joy to be around and she has a way of making you calm and relaxed. She went a long way in making our wedding day go off without a hitch!Sent on 06/03/2019

We got married April 13th at Bowling Green Country Club. Absolutely everything was perfect from the second we had our tour. We met Phillishia (the wedding coordinator) and I told my husband I wanted her to be my new best friend. SHE IS AMAZING!! Phillishia, her team, and everyone at Bowling Green did everything in their power to accommodate to my every wish!Sent on 04/29/2019

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!
