Dear Christine

The Four Counties Junior Tournament 2019

I am writing to extend very sincere thanks and gratitude to everyone at Lancaster Golf Club, for making the above event a truly memorable occasion.

From start to finish the competitors and visitors from the Four Counties praised the hospitality, preparation and professionalism of the event. Officials alluded to it being the best staged event throughout its 47 year history.

Special thanks beyond yourself and the many Members who were involved so enthusiastically, should be credited to Chair Karen Dunkeld and PGA Professional John Barclay for their organisational assistance, Catering Manager Niall and his team for superb catering  & support and last but certainly not least Course Manager Carl Hamlett and his team for preparing and displaying the course so magnificently.

Please pass on these thanks to Members and Officials, who should be proud of their achievements in making our first major event of the season such a success.

Finally may I wish you all at Lancaster Golf Club my very best wishes for continued success this year and into the future.

Yours sincerely


County Secretary

WOW! Margarita, Stacey, Bob and the rest of the Lancaster Golf Club staff helped make mine and Michael's wedding day magical! There was no contest when it came to booking our wedding venue, this is where my grandparents met as teenagers and it felt fitting to get married at Lancaster Golf Club, but the stunning building and grounds really made for a special place to celebrate our wedding!

Margarita is a superb wedding planner and, although I struggled to hand-over control, was just so organised and friendly from our first meeting. Margarita helped with everything, from arranging (and re-arranging) colour schemes, to table settings and advice about the room layout!

On the day Margarita, Stacey & Bob ensured everything ran smoothly so that we were able to enjoy every aspect of the day together with our guests and everyone mentioned just how beautiful the venue was! Dean and the kitchen staff served up three courses of amazing food and we still have guests asking for the flavour of the soup!

Thank you so much to everyone at the Golf club for making it a day we will never forget!

Dear Margarita, Stacey and team

I would just like to thank you for making my mum's birthday lunch last Saturday such a success. It exceeded my expectations. The whole event went smoothly from start to finish and it was all down to you and your attention  to detail. You really looked after us.

The room looked beautiful-so much so that I was moved to tears when I walked in. Stacey had decorated so well with the roses, bunting and photographs, and the 1940s music which was playing just completed the atmosphere. The food was delicious too. Everyone commented on it and no-one went away hungry! The staff were professional and extremely helpful so please thank them too.

It was all very relaxed and we felt very much at home. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants a venue for any celebration. The setting is impressive too.

Thank you so much once again.

Kind regards

Sue Nutter

Dear Margarita

Firstly may I say a big than you to you and Stacey for organising and delivering everything we asked for on Saturday night. Everything went to plan and everybody commented what a good evening they had enjoyed. The food was served hot and fresh with even some extra for those who wanted more.

The entertainers were looked after properly and consequently were happy to give good performances.

We would like you to pass on our thanks to the  Chef and his team and Matt and the bar staff the  service being everything it should be.

The people staying overnight found the accommodation acceptable and the breakfast excellent, served well and all they could ask for.

Should I need to organise a function again then your venue and organisation will certainly be the first on the list for consideration.

Could you please pass on our comments and thanks to all concerned, we fully appreciated all the effort everyone put in.

Our experience has made us confident in considering other events at the club in the future.

Kind Regards

Bob & Wendy Cookson.

Marc and I had the best time celebrating our wedding on 29/7/17. The venue was perfect and the food was absolutely divine and all my guests felt the same! The day was perfect and seamless with no hitches all thanks to Margarita and Bob-who thought of everything that we would have overlooked. They made sure everything was exactly as I wished and ensured everything was done to a high standard. All the staff were fabulous and went above and beyond throughout the day. Thank you from both of us for helping us have the best day of our lives x

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Margarita, and all the staff for making my daughter’s wedding a day to remember. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, the service 5 star. Dave the toastmaster was a blessing in disguise, calming everyone’s nerves and making the day run so smoothly. The bar staff were great and I don’t think anyone had to wait to be served. All in all a brilliant day and all credit to the staff. The venue itself is magnificent and obviously well cared for.

Once again a great hearty thank you to you all.

Steve Kent

Just want to say a massive thank you to Margarita and everyone at the golf club for making our wedding day so special, it was perfect from start to finish.

Special mention to Bob the toast master as he was brilliant! Couldn't recommend this venue enough.

Amy & Thomas Dickson

Margarita, on behalf of the family, I would like to thank you sincerely and all of the other staff involved of course. Nothing was too much trouble, the customer care was fantastic and the day went as well as it could. The quality of the food and drink served to the guests was excellent and we were all so glad that my Grandad chose your venue for my grandmother's wake. 
Kate Jordan  

Margarita, thank you for a successful evening. Please let your chef know that I've had many positive comments about the quality of the food, particularly the roast beef and the Eton mess. The waiting staff were excellent and your manager ensured that everything went smoothly.

We shall certainly be booking again.
