Perfect Planning: How to Have a Successful Event

There are many choices when it comes to planning your perfect event. Whether you are planning a golf outing, wedding or corporate luncheon, there are several steps to take to ensure that your event will be flawless and memorable. From the venue to the food and the entertainment, there are many details that will make your event a success.

The Venue

The first place to start when planning a flawless event is the venue. Your venue will set the tone for the entire event. When your invitations arrive, your guests will know whether you are planning a casual event or a formal, sit-down affair. For a golf outing, the most logical venue is a local course. You can find the right Chicago golf course that will accommodate a party of your size. If you are planning a wedding or corporate event, a golf course provides the perfect backdrop, giving you ample room for mixing and mingling and a scenic view.

The Menu

Your menu will play a huge role in the overall success of your event. Many golf courses have on-site catering services, and can provide a menu that will please even the most discerning guest. You can choose to offer a sit-down meal, appetizers or buffet style dinner. Some venues even offer carving stations and made to order dishes. An open bar makes the party even more festive, and your venue can arrange for you to offer a featured cocktail for your guests.

The Entertainment

The entertainment you choose will largely depend on your event and its level of formality. If you are planning a wedding, a DJ may be just what you need to get the crowd up and dancing. For a golf outing, a five piece jazz band will delight your guests at your cocktail hour. Finally, if you are going for a formal wedding ceremony, a violinist, harpist or orchestra will add a memorable touch that your guests won’t soon forget.

The Decor

One of the best things about hosting your event at a golf course is that it comes with its own natural decor and scenery. Lush greens and open expanse are perfect for getting the right photos and providing you with a backdrop of natural beauty. The interior spaces often come decorated, so there is no need to splurge on expensive decorations for your golf course event.

When it comes to planning the right event, attending to the details will make it memorable.
