Out of this world!
The team were absolutely outstanding. I honestly couldn’t fault them at all. Our wedding date was changed three times during the pandemic and this was done with such ease! I was lucky enough to have both Lucy & Laura to support me throughout the planning journey. Our wedding was a micro wedding due to the pandemic however this didn’t change the level of service or support that we received. No task or request was out of the question. They delivered a most magical day for us and one we will treasure forever. The Old Course really have got a brilliant team on their hands and they are extremely fortunate and should be so proud. We are only one of their customers and if the service we had is anything to go by they will no doubt have a raft of Other wonderful reviews. On the day of the wedding itself everything was smooth, the venue and setting beautiful, the food was exceptional, drink was flowing and the craic/fun was a plenty! The support staff throughout the hotel on the day were nothing short of brilliant too. Thank you so very much I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.

The entire team at the Old Course Hotel are absolutely wonderful but a special mention needs to be given to Laura Russell who went above and beyond to help us plan our wedding and make our day so perfect. She is one of the loveliest people you will ever meet and just fantastic at her job! Despite covid 19, we had the most incredible day!! Everything was exceptional- from the venue itself, the food, wine, service and to all the staff helping on the day- they were simply brilliant and so professional. They made the whole experience of planning a wedding completely stress free as they took care of everything for us, every tiny detail was important to them and I felt they were truly invested in making our day so brilliant. We didn't want to leave the hotel and sincerely wish we could do it all again with them! Perhaps a vow renewal there will be needed in a few years! : )

Perfection
From start to finish, Lucy & Laura were just a delight. Not only did they turn around our wedding with 4 weeks’ notice but made everything so simple and stress free. Nothing was too much hassle. The setting, food and service were spectacular. We will forever cherish the memories made at the Old Course Hotel on our special day.

You and the Old Course will forever have a special
Jenny and I really don’t know what to say to thank you for what was in our opinion the absolute perfect and memorable wedding for us. You organisation, professionalism, calmness and attention to detail, even through my diva demands for wine to calm my nerves for the speeches, made the wedding meticulous. I cannot believe how much effort you put in going so far above what are could have expected went in to making this day one we will never forget. I have no hesitation in saying that we would not have wanted to change one thing. The guests at the wedding as still talking about it event you and the old course were able to deliver. The conservatory looked like something from a movie. The last few months have been so hard, and without you there would have been no wedding I have never dealt with someone who has gone to such much personal lengths to help, even giving us glasses for our first toast. It is as close as we have ever felt to being famous, as the wonderful staff at the old course could not have made us feel any more special and have been more attentive to us. The room was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I actually feel very sad that it is all over, and sad that we will not be dealing with you as you have been exceptional in your job and as a person. You and the Old course will forever have a special place in our heart. You have heard my public speaking so you are aware that I am not the most eloquent, I wish I could better words to describe just how special that day was to us and how much of a part of our wedding you really were. Mrs McGuckin and I cannot thank you enough.

Magical Venue
We had an amazing day, the staff were so friendly and supportive when helping us to arrange our special day. The hotel facilities and location are second to none and we would recommend the Old Course Hotel to anyone looking for a magical wedding.

The venue itself is stunning
We chose to have our meal in the Conservatory, where you are literally right on the golf course in breathtaking surroundings, followed by our reception in the Ballroom which oozes elegance and class. It is certainly a venue that doesn’t need much ‘dressing up’ in order to provide you with a gorgeous backdrop for your day. We were lucky enough to have a glorious sunny day, which allowed for our wedding photos to be taken on the beach and on the balcony beside the Road Hole Bar. We also managed to sneak in a sunset picture on the world famous Swilken Bridge! Choosing our menu was almost as fun as our wedding day, and chef even came out to meet us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. If you are a foodie and really looking for a quality meal on your big day, then this is place for you! All of our guests couldn’t compliment the food enough, and we managed to provide options that suited everyone. The service throughout was second to none, it really is 5 star. Living in the south of England, it was always going to be challenging to liaise and have our vision come to life. However after meeting Laura, she completely put our minds at ease. Every detail or request that we had, were brought to life and nothing was too big or too small. Laura even went above and beyond on the morning of our day by helping to iron creases out of my wedding dress! We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and it will forever hold a special place in our heart. We are forever grateful to all of the incredible staff for an incredible experience.
