About Canadian Golf & Country Club
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and one that you want to be picture perfect. The Canadian Golf & Country Club has been hosting Ottawa weddings since 1980. To ensure that this day is perfect for you, this venue will only host one wedding per day, allowing their Special Events Planner, to focus on you. They have prepared a ceremonial site, known as Tori’s Garden, for you to exchange your vows. A beautiful setting which is completely private, and exclusive to you!
Facilities and capacity
Tori’s Garden boasts a beautiful gazebo, surrounded by colourful flowers and a large wharf which extends out over a private pond. To make your special day complete, they offer you two beautiful rooms to host your reception. Whether you are a group of 80 or 250, they have the room that will meet your expectations! Their second floor dining room has an amazing cedar cathedral ceiling, stone fireplace and wrap around balcony.
Their enclosed, heated, Marquis Tent, situated on a modern paving stone floor, is lit by thousands of warm, white twinkle lights. This reception venue offers you panaramic views of the golf course, and leaves your guests feeling as though they are completely outdoors! This area is ideal for weddings of 120 to 250 guests for your reception. The Marquis Tent is also used as an alternate location for ceremonies, should the weather not be conducive for an outdoor ceremony.
On-site bridal preparation is now available for you and your attendants. (When you select one of their all inclusive packages) You may invite your favorite hair and make up stylist to our private home, enjoy breakfast and lunch prepared by their Executive Chef Brad Cunningham and then dress for your wedding.
Each reception venue is equipped with it’s own bar and washroom facilities. Receptions are personally coordinated by their Special Event Coordinator, who’s main goal is to cover every detail, and anticipate and correct any potential problems before they may occur.
You won’t have to worry about every little detail on the day of your wedding. Their Special Event Coordinator, will be your guide, making sure things happen how and when you want them to. Nothing is left to chance, and the Canadian Golf Club prides itself on events that run smoothly, from beginning to end.

Great Venue and Staff!
Gail is amazing to work with! She gets back you extremely fast and makes the planning way less stressful. She was amazing in making sure myself, husband and wedding party was very well taken care of! The food was also amazing and we loved that we got to have a tasting before hand as well! Bartender is fabulous too! Beautiful venue and wonderful staff -this venue includes a lot of the wedding stuff in it so you don't have to hire out for every little thing! We were not disappointed at all and our guests said they had a blast! I highly recommend The Canadian Golf Course! It was a perfect day and night. :)

The Best Wedding We Could Have Asked For!
We got married at the Canadian Golf and Country Club this past September and it was truly the most wonderful day! Gail and her team far surpassed any expectations we had of them. From our first meeting to the big day, Gail made us feel like our day was important to her. Even though we got married at the end of September, it turned out to be the hottest day of the year! Gail went above and beyond to ensure that our guests and us were made comfortable on this incredibly hot day by having bottles of water and towels on ice readily available.
The ceremony venue was stunning with a beautiful, private garden to get married in alongside a lovely pond with a fountain and our reception was on the patio under the tent decorated with string lights and drapery to make it all the more elegant. The food was absolutely fabulous! We had many of our guests commenting on how good it was.
This is a day that we wish we could relive much in thanks to everyone at the Canadian who helped to make it such a special day.

Our September wedding at the Canadian was a dream come true. This wouldn't have been possible without the immense help from Gail, their wedding coordinator. She helped us every step of the way and helped make our day a very pleasant and amazing experience! The venue (Tori's Garden) is beautiful, and even though the weather was threatening to turn us inside Gail and crew were ready at the drop of the hat to make adjustments and towelled off chairs so that we could have our dream ceremony outside. The food is out of this world- we had the striploin and carribean chicken with garlic mash, and the california salad with a peanut butter cup mini cake for desser (turtle cake?) ! You also get a chance to sample all meal options months before your wedding, there were so many amazing options to choose from too! They provided the DJ- we had Shane, he is a magician, just incredible! The food service was so quick, everyone had their food right away! The entire staff at the Canadian made the wedding process smooth and enjoyable for us and our guests. We had so many of our guests comment on how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was. I really can't say enough about Gail and how helpful and flexible she is. If I had to go back to square one and plan a wedding all over again, I would book Canadian in a heartbeat!

The most Amazing Day of our lives!!!!!
My husband Chris and I got married this past July at the Canadian golf and country club in Ashton. I used to be a banquet server there 2 years ago so I knew that it was a location we needed to check out as a possible location. After visiting two other venues, we decided that the Canadian was our location to be. The owner Gail VandenHanenberg was very accommodating and answered every question I had throughout the year of planning up until the day of the wedding. The food tasting a few months before was beyond what we expected. We really enjoyed the buffet style and how we got to chose what we wanted for the wedding. We also really enjoyed choosing the packaged deal so that we didn’t have to go out a find our own DJ. The Day of the ceremony was beyond words. The ceremony site which is located in a secluded garden with a man made pond and gazebo was spectacular. The reception area was decorated so nicely and the staff were sooo helpful and professional. They accommodated to any of the needs of the guests and we got a lot of compliments about the venue and location. We really enjoyed every minute of our wedding and we couldn’t of chosen a better place location in Ottawa. I highly recommend this location to anyone.

I would most definitely recommend the Canadian Golf & Country Club for a wedding or function. The service we received was first rate and the food was phenomenal! We had so many compliments! Gail is extremely easy to talk to and she understood our vision of what we wanted right away. She was instrumental in making our day so special! It would not have come together as it did without her help. The staff was fantastic and the bartender was awesome! I can't say enough great things about this place and all the people who were involved!
