Laurel Hill Golf Club offers couples personalized service in a picturesque setting for their wedding, with the added bonus of an engaging chef who can fulfill their culinary vision.
Not far from I-95 in southern Fairfax County, Laurel Hill Golf Club’s 9,400 square foot clubhouse is situated in the gently rolling hills of a beautifully landscaped 18-hole championship golf course.
The spacious banquet room and adjoining Tower Room Grill can accommodate up to 150 people comfortably. Guests will be mesmerized by the panoramic views of the golf course, said Matt Loewenstein, events and membership director.
“Planning is key to any event, especially a wedding,” he said. “We focus on attention to detail, making sure every aspect of the wedding goes exactly as planned.”
The refined and elegant clubhouse offers full in-house catering services, a banquet room and executive dining facilities that can be tailored to each couple’s specific needs, Loewenstein said.
And when it’s time to take wedding photos, the golf course patio overlooks the 18th and 16th holes, which are spectacular spots for memorable pictures, he added.
“When a couple contacts us, the first thing we do is to listen to their vision for their wedding day,” he said. That means everything from the guest list to the menu to the schedule, incorporating any special traditions they may have. “As we do the walk through, showing them the banquet room for the first time, I try and paint a picture of what the day will look like.”
Laurel Hill’s catering is headed by Chef Edisson Rosales, who strives to make every wedding reflect each couple’s unique style. “His great cooking skills and attention to detail, his personality and engagement with the couples offers a very unique and special experience,” Loewenstein said.
The standard menu includes a variety of options. But if a couple has a special request, the chef will work with them to make that happen. “We have done Caribbean, Indian and Chinese,” Loewenstein said. “If there is something specific you’re looking for, let us know and we will try and accommodate.”
Laurel Hill sits in a historic area that has undergone revitalization since Fairfax County purchased the land that once housed the Lorton prison in 2002. For the better part of a century, one of the most beautiful parcels of land in the county had been hidden from public view.
But that changed when Fairfax County bought the land and opened it up, renaming the area Laurel Hill after the home of Revolutionary War soldier Major William Lindsay, which is located there. The historic 2,300-acre site has since been transformed into a vibrant urban area that includes Laurel Hill Golf Club and the Workhouse Arts Center along with neighboring schools, parks and residential developments.
“From this move, Laurel Hill Golf Club was born,” Loewenstein said, and the result has been a stunning location for a modern wedding in a historic setting. “Our elegant venue is surrounded by our beautifully landscaped 18-hole championship golf course and picturesque rolling hills.”
