"Best wedding due to best team

Garstang Golf Club are AMAZING! What a brilliant team . We booked our wedding here and they exceeded every single expectation and more ! Our venue looked stunning and they literally accommodated every need we requested , from rooms to food requests . Personal service was exceptional , have to specially mention Michelle the events manager - she was beyond helpful throughout the whole experience , very easy to contact , extremely helpful and so accommodating , couldn’t applaud her enough for her customer service. Also Chris who looked after us on our wedding day and the morning after , what a star - again exceptional customer service , we felt so looked after and he even noticed I miscounted my guest numbers but like luckily Chris and the Head Chef prepared enough food so we didn’t have hungry guests. The whole day went so smoothly , the food was delicious and from start to finish , every member of staff looked after us so well. Couldn’t recommend Garstang golf club for a wedding enough , for such a bargain price too ! What a team - thank you so much everyone for giving us such a fabulous memorable day ! Xxx"

"Thank you to everyone at the Garstang Golf and Country Hotel for their extreme professionalism, hard work and superior work ethic, which made ours daughters wedding a truly magical and memorable occasion.
Both my husband and I would highly recommend this hotel, from the moment we arrived , a family meal in the bar, a great night sleep in a very comfortable bed to the day of the ceremony. A few personal mentions go to Michelle you were outstanding your kindness and caring nature really showed. A real credit to the hotel. Ian for your professionalism and calm nature, you made sure everything ran as smooth as it should . Julie head receptionist, what can I say, a big thank you for helping with the room shuffle and making it possible for the bride to store her dress. The chefs , the food was delicious, hot and presented beautifully.  It was the best day of our daughters life and I’m so glad she and her husband chose your hotel as the venue. Once again Thank you"

Becci Cassidy - 4 November 2018


"We had our wedding at Garstang Golf Club last month, and it was a beautiful day. The food was exceptional; everyone commented on how delicious it was. The venue was beautifully set and it looked exactly how I imagined, even after giving garbled instructions in 5 minutes the day before when we dropped the stuff off! The staff were friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Special mention to Ann who even got the strawberry sauce stain out of my dress! Even the next morning they were relaxed and accommodating, helping us to collect the remaining things before we left. Every meeting before the day was helpful and Michelle was happy to answer any questions I had, completely putting my mind at ease. Their competence and relaxed attitude made the day stress free and run smoothly. There wasn't a hitch, which is tribute to their fantastic service. It was the perfect venue for us and we can't thank you enough for making our day spot on"
Philli McCormick - 3 June 2018

From the very first visit to leaving on the Sunday morning, a married couple, we could not fault the service, professionalism and friendliness of everyone we encountered. The attention to detail, in the Dimples lounge with the T lights and twinkly sprinkles made it look so beautiful. The food was delicious and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, we are just sorry that there was so much left at the end of the evening. We would particularly like to thank Wendy who helped us every step of the way with the planning, and the lady and gentleman who coordinated the day. You were all brilliant. Once again thank you all so much."
