Amazing Employees, Great Location, Beautiful Inside Area, Breath Taking Arbor at an affordable Price
Oh, Covid-19! Unpredictable times called for great measures. Phillishia, her assistant Zach, and BGCC Staff went above and beyond the call of duty. I initially had to postpone the wedding due to covid-19 restrictions to then wanting to have a small wedding with just immediate family members and few love ones. Phillishia managed to work with our limitations and finding a way to make it happen. To then helping manage the rapid changes in our guest list due to the updated COVID-restriction. She and her staff were very accommodating.
Words cannot express our gratitude for Phillishia, Zach, and BGCC staff. Our wedding was perfect and it is all because of them. Great communication skills, responsiveness, referring vendors, pre-decorating the venue, assisting to add personal touches/decorations to the arbor and indoors, coordinating the wedding chain of events, thoughtfulness, and making our event go perfectly, and much more.
Phillishia is a true lifesaver, I would not have been able to get organized without all of her help, and support to achieve our memorable day! We were very blessed to have her as our venue coordinator. She met all our expectations and met all our needs. She is very kind, passionate about her work, made our experience pleasant, and now we will forever cherish what is now one of the greatest memorable days of our lives.
Again, thank you to Phillishia and BGCC team for the help from the day we enquired about booking our wedding, until the moment after our wedding. Nothing was ever too much to ask for, and questions were always answered super fast. We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better venue. Phillishia exceeded all expectations of how the venue looked on the day, and how the day came together.
Thank you to Phillishia, and your team for the perfect day, while still keeping us safe by following the proper COVID-19 precautions. Forever grateful!Sent on 05/06/2021

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

Amazing day in a crazy year
Getting married during a pandemic is crazy, but Phillishia and that staff at BGCC made it so easy and safe! They spaced everyone out, the staff had masks and gloves and sanitizer, and they even had PPE for the guests! Phillishia was always quick to answer emails and acknowledge my concerns and do everything she could to make me feel comfortable. The food was outstanding! Chef Vito really knocked it out of the park! I can't say enough good things about Bowling Green. The next time we need a venue for something, it will ne the first place on my list!Sent on 11/11/2020
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Oh my goodness, thank you so much Sarah! Pandemic wedding planning is certainly no easy feat, but you handled it with ease and grace! It never felt like work with you, It was just a pleasure helping you make your wedding dreams come true! Congratulations again!!!

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!
