"My Aunt and Uncle were delighted when we hosted a family lunch for 24 to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary. We had a long table set out in the small lounge which meant we were completely private and could make speeches and toasts without concern for other diners. The menu was tailor-made to meet our requirements, and we were served beautifully – including cutting the cake!"
"Over the last few years we have hosted 3 Valentines Suppers for 40–60 members and friends of our church. On the first occasion we played our own recorded music through the bar for dancing, and for the next 2 Suppers we brought in a juke box with a free selection facility. We had a 2-course meal and coffee at very reasonable rates, chose the menu ourselves and also set up a screen to aid in promoting The Marriage Course. Everyone commented on the excellent facilities and service, and many guests would like us to run this evening every year."
"We held a family Sunday lunch at Harrogate Golf Club to mark the occasion of my Father’s retirement and 65th birthday. Eighteen of us ate in the small lounge which was very relaxing, especially as we had young children present. We were looked after very well and the food was lovely. Later we took family photos on the veranda and in the gardens to mark the occasion."
"Three of our children have celebrated their 18th birthdays at The Harrogate Golf Club. Both our sons have been involved at the club for several years and they were happy to have a lunch for the extended family in the dining room. The tables were arranged in a large square in the centre of the room, and although members wandered through from time to time this only added to the celebrations as most people knew our boys, and some bought them an extra pint! Our daughter had an evening party on a Saturday night – a masked ball for her friends, and hired a juke box to provide the music. We did not provide a buffet on this occasion, but brought nibbles for the tables which we decorated ourselves. We trimmed up the dining room with banners and balloons and the young people who came thought Harrogate Golf Club was great. Of course, being youngsters, they wore their jeans but that’s ok at a private function, but they respected the venue and a good time was had by all"
"This was the first time we have used the club and the feedback has been universally positive. The surroundings, service and general ambiance were first class."
"When I was a governor at my children’s primary school, I organised a progressive dinner for staff and fellow governors. We ate in the dining room and had a 3-course menu followed by coffee and mints. The ‘progressive’ meal meant that after each course every alternate guest moved round the table to sit next to someone else. This was hugely enjoyable and was a great way of integrating a new staff/governor team. Everyone was made to feel very welcome at The Harrogate Golf Club, and commented on the excellent service and quality of the meal."
"Our family compete on an annual basis for The Family Trophy, donated on the occasion of my parents' Golden Wedding Anniversary. We play at various courses, but have hosted the event at Harrogate Golf Club three times now. Only seven of us compete for the trophy but we have a post-match meal for all the family, fourteen of us in total. The first time we had a set meal, chosen in advance, and the next time we ate from the bar menu, but last time we all had John Roberts’ amazing fish and chips. Our family has frequented Harrogate Golf Club on numerous occasions, but each time is different from the last, and every one has been a success."
"My parents live in South Wales, but nearly all the extended family live in Yorkshire. So when it was their 50th wedding anniversary they held 2 parties to celebrate – one where they live in Wales, and a second at Harrogate Golf Club which was more convenient for the family, especially those who were unable to travel long distances. We hosted the party for 70 guests, and trimmed up the rooms and tables to reflect the occasion. We had a hot buffet which was set up in the small lounge so it did not hamper the dancers, and people brought their food to eat in either the dining room or the main lounge. Those who had the energy danced until the small hours, while those who had not seen each other for a while caught up in the comfort of the lounge. We had a microphone hooked up for the speeches (and an impromptu song!), and the occasion was a huge success. It goes without saying that all the Harrogate Golf Club staff were marvellous – welcoming, polite, and efficient as ever!"
"Fab! Very accommodating and friendly staff. Lovely venue. Food excellent. Everyone at the golf club has been so helpful. Thank you."
"The event was well organised – Eric and Dawn were informative and helpful – and very calm! The food was great. Everything was very flexible from the drinks to the food and everyone worked very hard to make sure we had the best possible night within our budget. The staff were fantastic – very efficient and polite. Small touches like remembering who the vegetarians were made the evening run even more smoothly. I would definitely recommend the golf club if you are planning a function - it really was the perfect night"
