Avila Golf & Country Club Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:

“Being that we decided on a June wedding in Florida, we knew we wanted to keep it indoors. With Avila’s two-story ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows behind the dining/reception area, it feels very open and not closed in like many other indoor venues. Once Kevin and I entered Avila Golf & Country Club for the first time we both knew almost immediately that we found our perfect venue; it is truly beautiful inside! Avila exceeded our expectations; their team were so helpful and attentive throughout the entire process and day-of. I still have guests raving about the venue!” – Julie and Kevin | Classic Ivory and Blush Pink Tampa Wedding

“We wanted a venue that was beautiful and breathtaking in its own skin. We didn’t want to go into a venue and have to overly decorate. That is something I truly loved about Avila, especially that main room where we had the ceremony and dance floor. From the hanging chandelier to the beautiful wood floor and arches surrounding the room, everything was just beautiful and had a character all of its own. The service was amazing! I did not have to worry about anything not being executed the way we wanted it. And the food was incredible; we still have family talking about how it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding!” – Colleen and Bryan | Romantic Dusty Rose Tampa Wedding
