Amazing day
I was best man at a wedding here a couple of years ago. The day was absolutely amazing and made even better by the fact that I could distract the groom with the driving range when he was getting nervous! The staff looked after us well and were friendly throughout the day. Slightly miffed that my friends found this place first, cos I would have loved to get married here myself!
