How important is the Christmas period to your business and why?
Christmas is one of the most exciting periods for our business – it’s a jolly time when spirits are running high and the whole club team pull together to have fun providing our members and guests with a truly exceptional festive party that they’ll remember for years to come.

How do you make Crown Golf venues stand out in such a competitive industry?
We really love Christmas and that always shines through. Our happy, lively and enthusiastic team creates a truly unique and infectious party vibe. This, coupled with show-stopping decor, great food and awesome tunes played by our resident DJ, is what makes a Crown Golf Christmas party night one of those evenings you don’t easily forget. Who wouldn’t want to party with us?

What will Crown Golf be offering this festive season?
All the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in a town near you. Float down the red carpet, grab yourself a cocktail, pose for a selfie or two and prepare yourself for a fabulous fun-filled evening. Guests can play a few games and enjoy a delicious three-course meal in our professionally themed function suite, before hitting the dance floor where our DJ will get the party started.

What is the secret to a successful Christmas party?
Great organisation from the venue before and during the evening to ensure everyone (including the event organiser) has an awesome night. A great meal prepared by genuine foodies makes a real difference, and you’ve got to have good service and a cool DJ. Add plenty of wine, cocktails or another tipple of choice and, of course, the great company of colleagues, friend and family.

What advice would you give office party event planners?
If you want a night to remember that’s totally stress free and guaranteed to impress your colleagues, a Crown Golf venue is the venue for you. We believe that as the office party planner you too should enjoy your evening, so all we ask of you is to return the completed menu pre-order form in advance and settle the account. We take care of everything else so you can confidently turn up on the night and relax and enjoy the great food, music and atmosphere along with everyone else.

What’s the biggest benefit to holding a Christmas party at one of your venues?
You just know that you are guaranteed a great festive meal and a fun-packed evening. Our venues are
professionally decorated in keeping with the party’s theme, and happy, lively staff make it their mission to ensure you have a fabulous night. We provide a safe environment where you can park for free then relax, let your hair down and party to your heart’s content.

What’s your favourite aspect of Christmas?
Watching people come together to have fun and celebrate the festive season. I love the warmth of the clubhouse on a cold and frosty night, alongside the sound of laughter, excited chatter and the glitzy decorations.

What’s the best or worst Christmas party you’ve ever been to?
The worst was a truly shocking evening in a comedy club in London. There were twice as many people as there should have been at each table, the food was cold, staff were miserable and there wasn’t so much as a single spare inch on the dance floor. In contrast, the best party night was the Cams Hall Estate team bash. Everybody was having a great time and the atmosphere was buzzing. It was so nice to share a great evening with friends and see everyone so happy.
