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

5 star experience made our special day amazing!!
The venue was absolutely gorgeous! The staff was super helpful and friendly you could tell that they really enjoyed their job. The food was phenomenal and had so many compliments about it from our guests. Phillishia was super helpful thru the whole process and made a stressful time seem way less stressful and she took a huge load of stress off our shoulders, from the decorating, to the food , making sure everything was in place defiantly worth the extra money to hire her as a wedding planner.Sent on 08/06/2019

BGCC is amazing and Phillishia worked so hard to make our day perfect!
Our wedding was perfect! Bowling Green Country Club was a beautiful place for our wedding. I feel like we got the most value for our money by having our ceremony and reception here, and Phillishia went the extra mile from the day we first met until the day of our wedding to make sure we were getting anything we wanted or needed! She gave us recommended vendors who were all fantastic, and it worked out well that lots of the vendors knew each other. Every time I had a question, she answered it in just a few minutes - even on her days off! She showed a lot of passion and care for our wedding! She made sure things ran smoothly on the day-of, and coordinated with our DJ and photographer. I didn't have to lift a finger!Sent on 08/15/2019
The venue itself was also absolutely amazing. We had our ceremony outside by the white arbor, where our florist hung a garland. Phillishia moved the flowers inside for the reception to get more use out of them! We rented chairs that were all set up outside and moved inside for the reception by Phillishia and her crew. She helped us line up for walking down the aisle and made sure everything went smoothly!
The South Ballroom really came to life with Phillishia's decorating powers! She has the cutest lights wrapped in tulle that drape between the windows. Those lights and the hardwood floors were what really stuck out to me about this venue. No ugly carpeting like so many other country clubs! You can really make this space your own. We brought our own decorations that Phillishia helped to set up the day before and on the day of the wedding. She did a fantastic job. Everything came out perfect! If it had rained, the South Ballroom would have been used as our ceremony location. Since I liked the ballroom so much, I wasn't really worried about rain since it would have also made a beautiful ceremony!
My mom was worried about having golf carts outside the building for the wedding. I thought it was such a small nit pick that we shouldn't worry about it. I asked Phillishia about it, and she very graciously had them moved! This woman worked so hard for us, and I couldn't be happier with the way it all turned out! Definitely a great choice for a wedding!
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Oh my Goodness, we are beyond grateful for this glowing review! It was a pleasure from the start working with you and getting to know you and your families. The fact that your day was perfect and stress free makes me personally delighted, after all, that's what we strive for!

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!
