Greetham Valley’s successful Autumn Wedding Fair

Lily King, superb wedding venue dressing - and what a fabulous backdrop!We really enjoyed hosting our Wedding Fair at Greetham Valley Hotel in Rutland yesterday – and we hope all the lovely couples browsing among all the exhibitors did too! There was so much to see – the stands were an absolute riot of colour and the atmosphere had a lovely gentle buzz all day.

All our bridal goody bags were claimed – so that was definitely 100 brides-to-be and their intended who brought along mums and dads plus potential best men and bridesmaids!

Beautiful, beautiful flower arrangements....

We now have lots of  personal show arounds and appointments arranged over the next few weeks and one bride booked Greetham Valley for 2015 as her wedding venue there and then as soon as she saw the Rutland Suite and it’s gorgeous view. She and her fiancé spent some time sitting out on the sunny balcony with a bottle of chilled wine, enjoying the view…..

Discussing Normanton Church, a lovely civil ceremony venue option

She is currently umming and aaahhing about whether to choose Normanton Church as her civil ceremony venue, with a trip back across Rutland Water on the Rutland Belle accompanied by her guests afterwards, with a red double decker bus to provide the transport to Greetham Valley…. decisions, decisions!!

James and his JH Roadshow - superb evening entertainment!

The exhibitors seemed very happy with the level of interest that their beautiful displays were creating, with most of them reporting bookings and appointments made at the Wedding Fair for the coming weeks. They are also looking forward to Greetham Valley’s next Wedding Fair, which will be on Sunday 23rd February 2014 – and yes, that date will come around very quickly – put it in your diary!
Flowers and photos....Wedding cars galore!!

Coloured flag positioning trial at Greetham Valley a success

Greetham Valley flag positioning trialIn early spring this year, Greetham Valley commenced a coloured flag positioning trial, with feedback requested from members and visiting players.

All the positive comments and opinions certainly seemed to hail the trial as a success so flag positioning has now been permanently adopted across the Lakes and the Valley courses.

To remind everyone, the coloured flags are used to indicate hole placement on individual greens, as follows:

  • red flag – hole is positioned towards front third of the green
  • yellow flag – hole is positioned in the middle third of the green
  • white flag – hole is positioned in the back third of the green

Need an easy way to remember? Think of the location and colour of the ladies, gents and competition tees – red forward, yellow middle and white back respectively!

Happy golfing!
