Seven Great Reasons To Get Married At Riverwalk

Have you ever dreamed of getting married on a golf course; outside with beautiful scenery and stunning views? Riverwalk Golf Club can make that dream a reality.

Located in the heart of central San Diego, we offer a secluded venue that’s an oasis for golfers as well as couples on their special day. We’re just minutes from the airport, interstate and several hotels, but the hustle and bustle of a big city seems far away when you’re at Riverwalk. Our property is as romantic and unique as it is convenient and accommodating.

The following is a list of seven great reasons to hold your wedding at Riverwalk.

Now Up On The No. 1 Tee … Your Wedding

Riverwalk offers a choice of two locations for your ceremony, one being the first tee on our Mission Course, which is located adjacent to one of our majestic distressed wood suspension bridges crossing the San Diego River. The second location is the veranda off the patio overlooking the river and No. 9 of our Mission Course.

Besides the cache and ambiance of actually getting married on the course, Riverwalk’s Catering Sales Director Madison Quartiano said couples also often choose the No. 1 tee for their ceremony because it’s able to accommodate a larger attendance of up to 200-225 people (the veranda max. is 150).

“It’s so beautiful with the bridge in the background,” she said. “It also provides a larger space for a larger bridal party where we can spread everyone out a little bit. It also makes for a great first-look and beautiful photos after the ceremony.”

You can also time your ceremony to have it take place against the backdrop of the setting sun.

“The golden hour is a popular time to get married,” Quartiano said.

The stunning waterfall on the 3rd hole of Mission is another popular photo location. The waterfall and colorful floral landscaping bring together couples and the course in a beautiful way, Quartiano said.

Riverwalk is indeed the perfect marriage of golf and weddings, a welcoming home for both birdies and brides.

We Cater To Your Catering Needs

After you get married, everyone wants to eat and celebrate, right? We’ve got you covered with a range of special menus and options to customize as well as accommodate different ethnic preference requests.

Our catering is done in-house, but we do allow outside desserts such as wedding cakes, cupcakes and Candy Buffets, for which we are happy to refer you to a list of preferred vendors. When your wedding cake arrives, the cake cutting is complimentary, by the way.

Quartiano said the seven base menu options cover most requests at Riverwalk, but if there’s anything additionally desired the club will always try to accommodate.

“Our chef is very flexible with our menus,” she said. “We have a list of buffets that can be modified to be plated. And we can also accommodate special requests, such as vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free, which is something that we’re seeing more frequently.”

Booking couples also receive a reduced rate on kids’ meals.

There are a host of delicious appetizer options, but Quartiano says she’s become partial to the crab-stuffed quesadilla triangles and the toasted ravioli. You might want to try them for your tasting!

We Offer A Unique And Flexible Space

Simply being a golf course sets Riverwalk apart aesthetically from the many hotels, ballrooms and banquet rooms that host weddings in San Diego, but our spacious clubhouse also plays a role in your special day.

Our banquet room is flexible with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to our beautiful balcony and patio space. Quartiano said an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception is a popular option at Riverwalk.

Besides being a flexible space, Riverwalk is also a blank canvas that can be decorated to personalize and beautify your wedding day in whatever way puts the special in your special day.

“It’s your wedding, not our wedding,” Quartiano said. “We’ll always try to accommodate what the client wants… within reason.”

Free Parking!

Parking is no small matter when it comes to planning a wedding in San Diego, Quartiano said. The cost of it can quickly add up if you’re looking at having your guests valet or use a parking structure as you are with many San Diego venues.

That’s not the case at Riverwalk, where parking is free and plentiful.

Free golf!

For couples who book, the groom gets a free round and the bride, too. Couples rarely play on their wedding day, Quartiano says, but the groomsmen will sometimes get together for an outing in advance.

We Honor Our Military

There are several ways to save on a wedding at Riverwalk, but Quartiano said perhaps the least known is that Riverwalk offers a discount to military couples.

“A lot of people don’t ask upfront, but we want people to know that’s available with us.” she said.

The Start Of A Tradition

Wedding days are all about beautiful new beginnings, but Quartiano said the.
