Full Description
At Golf World Stansted we have recently completed the refurbishment of our new Barn Suite, a very light and airy room with fantastic views across the golf course. The room is fully air conditioned with bar, music and multi coloured lights. It easily converts to a dance floor and we have recently had a new balcony and patio installed with outdoor bar, as well as Oak Framed Pavilion for outdoor ceremonies. The function room can seat up to 78 guests comfortably and 200 for non-seated after parties. We can offer ‘room hire only’, small low budget affairs or the full package including full premises hire with wedding breakfast, music and dance and an evening buffet. We can also organise the flowers, the photos and transport to your chosen hotel. If requested we can even take on the full function of a wedding planner in conjunction with carefully selected professional wedding suppliers. What is particularly special about a wedding at our golf club, is the photo shoot, for this we take you and your selected guests on buggies out onto the golf course to your chosen location for the best photos in amongst the stunning scenery. You can select from our events menu or talk to us about designing your own special choice of food. We offer all the catering in-house from our talented and professional chefs.

We can't praise it enough...
We recently had our wedding reception at Golf World Stansted and we can't praise it enough. From the first time we saw the venue we knew it was perfect for us, the barn suite is beautiful with all the white drapes around and the lovely views over the golf course. It also caught our eye because it had an outdoor patio area and a balcony as well as the downstairs bar it was important for us to have different areas as we had a wide age range of guests attending. When we first met Leanne she was so calm and just listened to exactly what we wanted. And was so accommodating, I was extremely worried that all the golfers would be everywhere but she assured me that as soon as they see a wedding going on they stay out the way and that was so true I hardly noticed any of them. We went on to have many meetings with Leanne to make sure we were both on the same page and knew exactly what the day was going to entail, I also dread to think the amount of emails I sent to her and she always responded quickly to any of my queries. On the day it was truly amazing I arrived after all my guests and they had the red carpet out for me. And a glass of bubbly ready to hand me immediately. Leanne came and congratulated us and then she was so involved in handing out the canapés and making sure everything was running on time. We went off for photographs around the golf course and the setting was just amazing. We are currently waiting for the professional photographs to come back and we can't wait to see them. They had also just set up crazy golf which my guests loved wandering off and playing during the evening and we had lots of photos on there. Not only was Leanne our wedding planner and was so involved in the whole day she then had a quick change and became our evening entertainment along with her band. And they were amazing, all my guests are still talking about them. And I can't wait till I have another event so I can get them to play again! Since the wedding we have already been back twice for something to eat as the food is amazing. We can't recommend this venue highly enough as they truly gave us an amazing day and all the staff were so helpful and friendly. We hope to be regulars now!

Our wedding (yesterday) was absolutely faultless
Where do I start.... after having a massive cake emergency the day before my wedding, Leanne took it upon herself to save the day and arranged for the cake to be sorted for us, even though she had her own evening plans but spent over 5 hours doing everything in her power to get us a cake and by 8pm the same day we had a cake! Our wedding (yesterday) was absolutely faultless, Leanne and her team gave us a perfect day and we can’t thank them enough for tending to all our needs as well as our guests and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day! I have had nothing but amazing messages from our guests on how fantastic our day was at Elsenham Golf Club! I am happy to talk to any brides to be but I can assure you that you won’t get a better service! Once again, thank you Leanne and all your team for giving us a wedding to remember

Everything and more for our Wedding Reception
We just had the best day and couldn’t of wished for a better venue including the amazing staff!! I literally had a wedding cake emergency the night before our wedding (we used an outside cake maker) and Leanne went to great lengths to ensure we had a cake for our day, in fact she had plans that evening but cancelled them putting us and our wedding first! From the beautiful view of the golf course, to putting us and our guests needs first! I have nothing but praise for this beautiful venue ❤️

We couldn't have asked for anything better!
We had our wedding reception here on the 24th June, we couldn't have asked for anything better! Leanne is extremely helpful and she did absolutely everything she could to make our day run as smoothly as possible. The venue itself is beautiful and has such a relaxed feeling. Prices are very reasonable especially compared to other local venues. I would recommend to anyone looking at getting married here or just for a relaxing drink or game of golf, everyone is very friendly and welcoming. We had the perfect day and wouldn't have changed one single thing. Thank you Leanne and family.

Amazing team in an amazing environment.
Amazing team in an amazing environment. I attended a wedding here and it was so well run. Being close to the bride, I know that there was so much freedom in the organisation of the day. Leanne and the team couldn't have been more accommodating. (Even down to providing golf lessons for the children while photographs were being take !) The food was delicious!!! I will certainly be back and would recommend to friends and family! X
