Elena Procopi · Getting married on 03/04/2021
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

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's reply:Oh my goodness Elizabeth, first of all, thank YOU! Thank you for being amazing to work with, thank you for allowing us the opportunity to host your very special day and thank you for this glowing review! We strive to ensure that every "I Do" is a dream come true and the fact that you and your husband were so pleased with every aspect of BGCC speaks volumes!

Absolute best venue
Let me just start off by saying PHILLISHIA rocks!! 🤗🤗 She is amazing! She will make all your wedding wishes come true. The first time we went to look at the venue and met her, we knew it was the right place for us! The food is amazing! The staff are all amazing! We had the ceremony and reception all at one location. And best of all....it is AFFORDABLE! Hands down the best all-inclusive venue! 😁Sent on 12/05/2019
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Thank you so much! Bowling Green strives for reviews just like this and I am so glad that we were able to do that just for you. Thank you for being amazing to work with and we look forward to working with you again at your vow renewal :)

Tim Hilkert - Groom
This venue was absolutely perfect for us! The staff is incredible, most importantly our wedding coordinator. She was not only an amazing, patient, and intelligent coordinator, she was so fun to work with. The ballroom in which we got married was decorated perfectly. And the layout of our ballroom was perfect and presented us plenty of options for where we wanted our ceremony to happen. The golf course was in such nice shape. We were fortunate to have excellent weather for the first week of November, but the colors on the trees and the colors on the golf course were perfect. Very green course helped tremendously.Sent on 11/20/2019
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Tim! Thank you..thank you for this amazing review!
Candace Robbins · Married on 11/02/2019
Book this venue!
I would book this venue over and over again as long as Phillishia is there. She is the event coordinator and by the time we got to the ceremony I wanted to marry her. She never says no to anything, she made she it was how I wanted it, and provided support along the way. She calmed all of us and has a good time and is fun to be around. The wedding was beautiful, we heard good things about the food from the guests, they accommodated our allergies. You get to do to (included) menu tastings once a month. Best decision to book this venue!Sent on 11/20/2019
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Thank you! Thank you!!! Thank you a million times! Your kind words and fabulous review are exactly what we strive for! It was an honor working with you and we look forward to keeping in touch with you!

Amazing venue for our wedding
I recently held my wedding in October at Bowling Green CC and it went flawlessly! The venue turned out beautifully, the place settings were perfect, everyone loved the food (the eggrolls were a favorite, but we ordered steak and salmon as meals). The outdoor arbor was perfect- there was no need to buy flowers for the ceremony because the arbor already has plants surrounding it and the trees changing colors behind that. The real selling point is Phillishia though. The day of coordinator for BGCC. Phillishia is so funny and relaxed that I was almost worried she wouldn’t get everything done but then I realized she’s just amazing. Went out of her way consistently to save us money and let us use what the club had the offer. Made sure everything went perfectly the day of the wedding. She was one of the only vendors who maintained a perfect balance of being aware and accessible without being annoying or over bearing. Checked in with us at the perfect times, made sure we had food specifically out for us every time we sat down, made sure our guests were happy. Can’t say enough about Phillishia.Sent on 11/12/2019
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Devyn! We are honored that you chose us as your wedding venue and we are over the moon excited to read this review! Bowling Green strives to ensure that every "I Do" is a Dream Come True and your glowing review is a reflection of just that. Thank you.

Picture perfect wedding
Philisha and rickie were amazing! The bridal suite was set up beautifully with mimosas! They created exactly what i had envisioned for the ceremony and reception! That ballroom was beautiful and all of our guests raved about the food! You can not go wrong in choosing this venue, especially if you want a stress free day! There are no words to express how happy we are that we chose this venueSent on 10/06/2019
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Amanda both you and your Groom were a pleasure to work with from day one! Thank you so much for this glowing review! We are so happy that we were able to make your wedding vision come true.

Dream come true!
My husband and I got married at BGCC back in August and we LOVED working with everyone there! Phillishia was there to answer all my questions (and I had a ton) and was super fun to work with. Even with me starting school the week before my wedding, it was a breeze thanks to the awesome staff! The venue was so pretty. Highly recommend!Sent on 01/25/2020

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

Casey Tissue · Married on 06/08/2019
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!
Ashley · Married on 05/17/2019
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
Bowling Green Country Club's reply:Thank you so much Ashley and Steve!!! It was a pleasure every step of the way! Congratulations and best wishes from all of us here at Bowling Green!

Wonderful Venue and Service
Phillishia is a fantastic coordinator. She is more like a partner in the wedding than someone we hired for the day. She thought of everything and the entire wedding and reception went off without a hitch. The venue was beautiful and Phillishia went above and beyond to ensure that the event was beautiful. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend the venue and Phillishia for any event. We had the wedding and reception at the south ballroom.Sent on 04/06/2019

Could not have asked for a better venue!
We had the greatest experience with Bowling Green Country Club! From our very first correspondence to the moment we said our farewells, Phillishia Plew, along with her staff, made our wedding dreams come true! The chef personalized our menu, even making our appetizer using a special family recipe we provided. We will never forget our special day and are so grateful to all involved! This venue and staff made our special day perfect. Not once did we have an issue that Phillishia wasn’t two steps ahead of. From the amazing views of this great venue, to the staff, they will make your big day even more than you were expecting.Sent on 04/15/2019

Amazing Venue and Event Coordinator
I had the opportunity to work at Bowling Green Country Club twice this past month for two sweet couples and both times were AMAZING! This is one of my favorite venues in Front Royal. The venue is stunning with well manicured grounds and friendly staff. Phillishia is among one of those amazing staff members who couples are lucky to work with. She is organized, responsive, friendly, and everything you would want in an Event Coordinator for your special day. She has many weddings under her belt and will handle any disturbances with ease if they arise. The food is ALWAYS delicious and warm. Plus as a vendor, it's important that we eat when the couple eats to ensure we are ready for the next event and they always ensure that we are fed and have silverware as well as plenty of water throughout the day! They have a select number of vendors that they recommend which are only put on the list after review because they want only the best vendors to work with for their couples. You can't go wrong booking your wedding or event at Bowling Green and I am excited to be in September to work with the team again!Sent on 06/04/2019

Best day of our life!
My husband & I recently had our wedding reception at Bowling Green Country club and it was amazing fromSent on 12/10/2018
Beginning to end! The coordinator, Phillishia, made everything so easy for us. From giving us ideas, working with us on several different aspects; she was easy to reach and talk to, & always came through! The chef did an amazing job with the food, every single person loved it! The staff was so helpful and was working around the clock to make sure everything went smoothly. The venue itself, beautiful beyond words. It’s spacious on the inside and the scenery on the outside was breath taking. I wouldn’t change anything about our experience there. I would highly recommend Bowling Green Country Club for your wedding, reception, or both!

Say "YES" to this venue!
My husband and I would recommend this venue to anyone! We inititally loved the venue because of the ability to have the ceremony inside or outside, the reception halls are gorgeous, the Front Royal area is beautiful....But, what really made us love the venue was the Events Coordinator, Phillishia! From beginning to end she was there to answer any questions or concerns, provide insight or suggestions, share in the stress and excitement of wedding planning, and so much more. You can tell that Phillishia has been doing this a lot because she is great at it! Also, the staff were friendly, the bartender Jay was awesome, the food was yummy....all around I couldn't have asked for anything better! This place tops any "expensive" or what may seem "in" venue to you! I highly recommend considering this your venue!Sent on 11/17/2018

Great Venue and Amazing Staff
Bowling Green Country Club's ballrooms have such natural beauty that you can almost get married there when you show up. We held our wedding reception at the Bowling Green Country Club in September 2018. It had the vintage chic vibe that we were hoping for and had lots of space for our ~110 person wedding reception. We chose the South Ballroom mostly because of its natural beauty and huge chandeliers. But honestly what really sold us on this venue was the wedding coordinator, Phillishia. It was one of our first venue visits, but she made it hard to pass up. You could tell early on that Phillishia was going to be very accommodating and was going to make sure the reception was a blast (spoiler alert: it was). Her response times were great, and she had fabulous ideas for not only our reception, but for the ceremony, which was held elsewhere. She was such a great sport about all of our crazy ideas and went above and beyond what we feel any other wedding planner would have done for us at the other venues we looked at. The food was great - the crab dip received rave reviews (shout out to Chef Vito). The wait staff was super attentive to us throughout the event - we truly felt like we had complete control of the party. It was the perfect venue for our celebration.Sent on 12/15/2018

Colleen · Married on 09/08/2018
BGCC was the BEST place to get married!!! My (now) husband and I had 6 months to plan a wedding and everywhere else we looked barely wanted anything to do with us or wanted to charge an arm and a leg. Not here! From the beginning, Phillishia was absolutely incredible! She loves what she does and definitely does an incredible job at it! She was one of the BEST parts of having our wedding here. She never said "No" or something wasn't possible, SUPER accommodating! Leading up to our special day, she was the absolute best. Whatever idea we had, she was fully on board and excited. The food was surprisingly wonderful! The chef was imaginative and open, he seemed to like to break the mold of traditional set menus and our menu was catered to what WE wanted! (And DELICIOUS!!)Sent on 09/15/2018
The venue itself was exactly what we wanted. It's a little bit of a trek for some but it's completely worth it! Phillishia and her team did a PHENOMENAL job decorating the ballroom to our liking and everyone at our wedding was RAVING about how beautiful it was! Not to mention the day-of, everyone there was extremely helpful and kept my life stress-free and relaxed!! Even when things didn't go according to schedule or something came up, Phillishia never let me see it or deal with it (which is exactly what a bride needs!)
If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!
