Facilities and Capacity
The elegantly renovated event spaces at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club are suited to weddings, engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners. Ceremonies can take place in either the clubhouse or the meadow site outside. The clubhouse features a dining room, banquet room, and washrooms, all refurbished to ensure comfort and functionality. From the banquet room, couples and their guests can gaze out onto the landscape through the large windows that allow the space to be flooded with natural light. A dance floor can be set up in the space and there is room for up to 200 guests to join the couple in celebration. Just imagine walking down a rustic country locale leading to the entrance of our newly landscaped ceremony area. Set in a stand of oak trees with a paving stone seating area surrounded by a variety of flowers, trees, and shrubs, this space provides an elegant ambiance to take your first steps as a married couple.
This area can also be used for post ceremony cocktails for your guests while you and your partner take your photos. This intimate meadow setting comes complete with an outdoor sound system, pristine white resin padded chairs, wooden wedding arch and signing tables. You can decorate this area as you please.
200 guests can attend the ceremony and the soon-to-be newlyweds are allowed to decorate this area to fit their theme. There is an outdoor sound system in the meadow to ensure that family and friends can hear the vows. Inside we can accommodate up to 200 individuals. Adjacent to the banquet hall is the patio, which is surrounded by landscaping and provides guests with a place to enjoy the fresh air. There are many photo opportunities throughout the grounds, from the woodland trails to the manicured gardens.
The team at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club offers a number of services to help make a couple’s big day romantic and special. This includes food and drink. Guests can enjoy a buffet dinner or a three/four-course meal, along with hors d'oeuvres and late-night snacks.

The grounds are stunning. The ceremony space with mature trees and perfect landscaping wowed our guests and the indoor/outdoor spaces in the clubhouse created different spaces for guests of all ages to feel comfortable throughout the entire event.
Amanda was responsive and kind from the first day of planning all the way through the wedding day. She was there from 8:00am when the girls arrived in the bridal cottage with coffee champagne and treats already set out, checking in with me and the wedding parties for food and drinks, and allowing me to check on the decor set up and tweak anything I mentioned to her. She ensured the days timeline was followed and stayed until 1:00am when we left. Anytime we had a question or a random guests request (including drunk kareoke) she made it happen.
All the staff working the event were happy, fast, and lovely to chat with. Guests didn’t have to wait in lines or want for anything.
The entire experience was amazing and my husband and I both agreed we would not change a single thing about the day. That statement was made true by Bel Acres!
With a wedding already being so busy and stressful to plan, we really appreciated how Bel Acres did everything for us. It was so helpful to have them do little things, like print menus, seating charts, and place cards; amongst other things that we would have had to find someone else to do for us. They have numerous vendors that provided all of the services that we needed, such as decor, an officiant, and DJ.
Bel Acres' wedding planner, Amanda, was amazing. She helped to prepare so many of the details of the wedding that we might have forgotten or struggled to do. She was there for the entire evening to ensure things were running smoothly and to ensure that everything was up to our specifications. She was flexible and helped us to create the vision for our wedding that we wanted, such as having an ice cream bar for dessert instead of a traditional option.
Overall, we recommend Bel Acres to everyone. They are a fantastic venue to work with, the views are spectacular, and our reception was a blast. Our wedding was fantastic and we owe a lot of that to the venue and the wedding planner.
*We recommend getting a shuttle for your guests, as ours was very popular and our attendees enjoyed the experience.
Dreams don’t come true
We held our wedding at Bel Acres a few weeks ago. We were promised many things that they did not deliver on. We do not feel that we were given the level of service that was promised or that was paid for. The staff at bel acres is NOT willing to work with us to ensure we are happy or even pleased. Please, do not have your wedding here unless your wedding wish is to be disappointed.
This is just a hint at what went wrong on our wedding day because of Bel Acres and their staff. If this is how my wedding went, I can’t imagine which requests and wishes of others they won’t deem worthy of fulfilling after the making of promises....
We began planning with them in February. The clubhouse was going through a large winter renovation but the event planner Camalee helped us to see their vision and we had faith in her and what the end result would be. Everything at first seemed perfect, they dealt with and provided almost every vender and service at a surprisingly decent cost for a wedding. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful.
Slowly over the months due to Covid-19 many things were changed, they removed services while the price remained largely the same. They were not very helpful at easing our stress during this time, only adding to it. With only a week left until the wedding they forced us to cut half of our guests when the province was still allowing more than we had asked for. They claimed it was due to the fact that they felt the space wasn’t large enough to social distance in with that number of people. When we got there on our wedding day, there was so much space we could’ve fit at least 75 people distanced. If not the full government mandated 100! We understand that Covid is not Bel Acres fault and some of the changes they made had to happen. But they did not deal with them or telling us about them well. They also made their own changes and rules that did not make sense.
We were rushed through our wedding rehearsal and a waitress spilt a drink on a bridesmaid with no apology. The bar did not know what an old fashioned or vermouth was. Never mind being able to make it.
On the day of the wedding we had many issues but we lived through them with the intention of discussing them with the event planner within the next days only to learn she had been let go after the wedding. We cannot help but wonder if that could be because she performed so poorly while planning our wedding.
We were not given food we were promised, food and drinks were often very late causing other things to be late including the ceremony. Servers for drinks were almost unseen during the day. Guests had to go to the bar themselves to get drinks which we were told ahead of time would not be allowed. The servers were all chatting around the bar instead of being out serving our guests. As the bride, I was offered a drink once in 5 hours. There was other events going on in a building we had been told would be private and reserved only for us. We specifically requested sparkling wine for the whole day and the employees told us they were specifically told not to bring any in. The rooms they had the wedding party get ready and wait in before the ceremony were crowded and full of renovation supplies. They stunk like the sewer. After the wedding we were told there was a second location we could’ve been waiting in that would hopefully not of smelt but we’re not offered a choice between them before hand. We brought a few items for the wedding to the rehearsal and asked our planner what she thought we should do with them at the time and she told us she could take them and hold them in our office until the next day when she would do the necessary things with them. One of them was the pen we had specifically for signing our marriage license. During the ceremony we noticed the pen was not there and we were very anxious as to someone in the crowd needing to have a pen. Thankfully someone did however that is not a smooth situation.
Our amazing wedding
On June 24, 2023 we got married at Bel Acres and we could not have asked for a better venue/ experience!
From day one (august 2022) when we reached out to inquire about having our wedding at Bel acres we were treated with professionalism by everyone onsite, and we were taken great care of by Amanda (onsite event coordinator).
They assisted everything we wanted with such enthusiasm(bringing Guinness onsite and coordinating with all our vendors), and everything we didn’t think of, they took care of and made beautiful (wedding menus and table numbers etc)!
We continue to receive compliments on the food, bar and ceremony space and I, as the bride cannot get over how perfect the bridal cottage was for 1) getting ready in and 2) hiding out in till my husband was going to see me for the first time walking down the aisle.
Amanda was so helpful with all of our last minute changes (few last minute people saying they were no longer able to attend) and through all the ups and downs in watching the weather in the lead up to the wedding, she assured us of the back up plan which kept us calm and able to focus on what we wanted to.
Ultimately, we were so fortunate with weather, guests, dance floor and all the joy and love a wedding could bring and we would definitely recommend people consider Bel Acres as a beautiful wedding venue.
Amazing, wonderful service
Amanda is so wonderful. Whole staff is so professional and helpful. They helped us in every possible way and according to our needs. Highly recommend.
Best of luck

Brenda is awesome
Their all inclusive packages made it easy to do wedding planning.
The staff was so helpful throughout the night and the service was 10/10.
The food was fantastic and all the guests had nothing but good things to say about the meals.
The ceremony was outdoors and private and intimate despite it being at a golf course.
Brenda went out of her way to accommodate to what we wanted and was so helpful throughout the planning process.
I would recommend this venue to everyone looking for a beautiful place to get married at!
