Nestled in 300 acres of mixed woodland and parkland, Moor Park Golf Club is an idyllic wedding venue. With a fascinating history of successive house-construction spanning back to the early 17th century, which in more recent years has seen the design of the beautiful golf course by Harry Colt, the estate is certainly wonderfully unique - and you can be sure that your wedding will match.

You have the option to marry in one of the stunning mansion rooms, which all boast a distinct character. The scenic gardens are ideal for photo-opportunities and in the warmer months make a perfect setting for a drinks reception. Wedding breakfasts at the club are always a show-stopper, with an extensive array of adaptable menu choices and lots of tantalising extra options available.

History

The estate has its origins around 400 years ago, when the third Earl of Bedford built a country house in the Manor of More's deer park. The edifice was frequently adapted and altered throughout the centuries; Charles II's illegitimate son had a brick house built over the foundations in 1670, and in 1720 the building was purchased from his wife and a larger mansion made of Portland stone was constructed over it. In the mid-1800s the owner of the park, Robert Grosvenor, purchased the manor and created the estate.

1923 saw the birth of the idea to create a golf course on the property. Designed by Harry Colt, the lush fairways and greens soon became one of the area's most renowned sporting facilities. In WWII the Armed Forces occupied the mansion and, in what is now called the Arnhem Room, the celebrated battle of Arnhem was planned. The room now houses war memorabilia from the period.

The estate reverted to private ownership in 1994, and works began on refurbishing and restoring the historical fabric. Moor Park Golf Club is proud to say that all of the early Georgian rooms have now been entirely reconditioned to their original appearance.
