This expansive wedding venue, located just south of Denver in Sedalia, is more than just a golf course. Previously created as a place of refuge for wildlife and service organizations working to help the local community, they now support groups that are devoted to children, the arts, healthcare, and crisis management. Over the past couple of decades, they have raised over 100 million dollars for the people that they serve. How’s that for a good cause?
Pristine, elegant, and charming, The Sanctuary Golf Course is an ideal wedding venue for any couple looking to engage with all the beauty that Colorado has to offer, while also receiving a feel-good conscience, knowing that you are giving to a stellar organization through your big day.
All encompassing mountains surround the course, giving you a mountain lodge feel while exuding sophistication at the same time. Let’s take a deeper dive into this beautiful venue and see what makes it so special.
What Makes The Sanctuary Golf Course An Ideal Wedding Venue?
The Sanctuary Golf Course is located in Sedalia, a small town just south of Denver. This is ideal for any guests you may have traveling into the area, since Denver International is less than an hour away. If you’re heading from Denver proper, total travel time is only around 45 minutes.
The venue itself is nestled in between the Rocky Mountains and provides a feel that is far from the city, though it is closeby. This is truly an exclusive location, complete with cascading waterfalls and a clubhouse that features stone fireplaces and iron chandeliers hanging from elevated ceilings.
This venue offers year-round services and holds up to 200 guests for seated ceremonies and up to 300 guests for standing receptions.
Aside from the location, take one look at the reviews for The Sanctuary Golf Course, and you will see hundreds of happy couples who couldn’t say nicer things about the staff, service, and overall experience they were offered.
