Western MA Wedding Venue Spotlight: The Ranch Golf Club

Why I love it:

I absolutely love the Ranch Golf Club, I love how they take each couple’s vision for their wedding and make it flow throughout the ceremony and reception.  They an awesome outdoor space available for ceremonies too.  The grounds are spectacular in all season, and offer so many different spots that are perfect for pictures!  I love the quaint feel of the barn and how it looks all lit up during the reception.

About the Venue:

Our venue is simply charming! The barn dates back to 1897, and was originally used as a hay barn for the dairy farm that once sat on our gorgeous, lush golf course. When the current owners turned the dairy farm into a golf course, they decided to keep all of the original barns and use them for our restaurant, golf shop and wedding venue. Although they have done a lot of renovations to the restaurant and golf shop, they decided to keep the rustic charm for our wedding venue. It is not your typical barn, filled with dark wood and dark beams, instead it is bright and welcoming! The barn has an incredibly high ceiling, with exposed beams, light-colored wood walls and windows all around to let in a lot of natural light. To add to the charm, we put up twinkle lights and wood garland around each pillar of the barn. We also put a curtain of bright white lights in the center of the dance floor, along with floor-length white sheers to really highlight the best part of the wedding- the dancing! Basically it is just a stunning, charming venue with so much potential! The barn can truly transform into anything our couples’ desire, which is so much fun!

We offer the following amenities:

  • on-site ceremonies in our quaint courtyard that is attached to the barn
  • the use of our bridal suite, which is the original farmhouse that once belonged to the family who owned and operated the farm
  • an event coordinator who helps from the booking process to the very day of the wedding
  • our beautiful barn for our reception space
  • champagne toast, coffee service, floor-length linens, napkins, white garden chairs, appetizers, and an attentive staff included in all packages
  • a beautiful landscape for photos

What advice do you offer to brides and grooms? 

I tell brides and grooms all the time to just enjoy the process, from engagement to planning to the day-of. It is important to be present in every moment because before you know it the day has come and gone.Often times the planning can cause a lot of stress, but focusing on the end goal of a fantastic celebration is key!
