See our Oak Park Golf Club Gallery
Oak Park Golf Club is an intimate but spacious wedding venue with fabulous staff and great views across the golf course from the club house.
Oak Park has a sizeable room for the wedding breakfast, a good sized dance floor, plenty of sofas in an adjoining room and a sizeable patio with tables and chairs overlooking a stunning view.
Each of these rooms are very close together giving an intimate feel but the rooms themselves are actually bigger than the equivalent rooms of some larger venues.
The rooms themselves are next to each other and separated by sliding doors which are opened later in the evening providing a very spacious open plan situation made up of a dance floor area, tables area and sofas area.
The club house bar is incorporated into the tables area and sofas area. It’s worked very well when we’ve been there.
Until late afternoon some of these facilities were shared with some of the club members but when we’ve been there this hasn’t been a problem at all.
The golf club also offer a buggy ride to a pleasant lake somewhere on the golf course for portrait photography.

See our Old Thorns Wedding Photography Gallery
Old Thorns is a top golf club near Liphook, Hampshire with attached hotel and two fabulous wedding suites.
The larger suite can cater for a substantial number of guests with a large bar, large dance floor and great decor. There is a modest garden attached to it for outside wedding photography if appropriate.
The more intimate suite over looks the actual golf course, has a lovely view and its own attached bar and patio that backs onto the golf course. It has its own intimate bar and a separate room for the ceremony and the reception. The dance floor for the evening is in the same room as the ceremony earlier.
Which ever option you choose for your wedding, you will have the opportunity to ride in a golf buggy with your photography to one or two of the beauty spots on the course for wedding portraits (weather permitting).
The foyer of the hotel is a very striking place for wedding photography and is available which ever you option you choose. The foyer is a fascinating combination of modern decor in traditional architecture. It has modern steel and glass stair case and modern sport lights and a wall covered with black and white photographs of Hollywood stars but the architecture itself is one of a renovated barn. Very pleasing and in complete contrast to the elegance and intimacy of the wedding rooms themselves.
The golf course itself has some glorious views and if you choose the smaller of the two wedding suites which backs onto the gold course it is likely you’ll be able to make the most of a sunset if you’re lucky enough to have one.
There is ample parking close to the hotel, the staff are fantastic, the decor is awesome and the views around the golf course are fabulous. We definitely recommend that you have a look at this venue if you like the idea of a golf/hotel wedding venue.
