We had our wedding ceremony and cocktail reception at the Chula Vista Golf Course and we couldn’t of been happier with the experience. Chris, Rebecca, Justin and the catering staff were fantastic! We had originally planned to have an outdoor ceremony but because of rain, we had to move it inside. The staff rearranged the ballroom for our ceremony and it turned out great. We opted for a cocktail reception rather than a sit down dinner and we are so happy we chose that route. Chris and Justin worked with us in advance to create the menu which even included churro donuts, cookies and milk towards the end of the night. The food was amazing and we received so many compliments about it. We highly recommend this location for your event.
For a public course this place was all class. Found somebody's wedge and got it to them, lost our putter cover and got it back, was on stand-by as a threesome and teed off within 5 minutes, son received free golf balls from one of the marshals, just a perfect day. Everyone fixed their ball marks so the greens are true. Lots of fun.
Enjoyed the driving range and the atmosphere of the club house... staff was friendly and helpful and the other patrons were extremely kind... great place to visit during my vacation.
