    THE most perfect Venue!

    Couldn't be more thankful to have worked with Alexandra and the team at Esplanade for our wedding! They helped us share our ceremony and reception with elegance, sophistication and a whole lot of romance. The drinks, appetizers and dinners were exceptional! Couldn't recommend them more strongly. Thank you, thank you!

    Wedding and Reception

    Esplanade Golf & Country exceeded our daughter and her husbands wedding in October!
    Sandra and her staff did an amazing job in assisting with the wedding planning. Alexandra is the new Director of Private Events and Sales and had just started a few days before the event and fit in perfectly! Chef Justice prepared a pasta station, vegie station, carving station which consisted of filet and ham. All of which was delicious.

    We held the ceremony overlooking the 18th hole and the view was spectacular!

    If you are looking for a place to host a special event I would highly recommend this venue!

    Perfection

    We were directed to the Esplanade when our original venue was no longer able to host us and the Esplanade put everything together for us in record time. I highly recommend this venue not only for the beauty of it but the exceptional service and incredible staff!
