50th wedding anniversary

Superbly organised and it all went very well. The conservatory is an ideal size for our event (35 people) but would also do 60 we think. Food was especially commented on favourably by our guests for both quality and quantity. When we have another event to organise we will be back.

90th Birthday party

HI Daniel, many thanks for hostiing Mums 90th party on the 11th June, the food was delicious – including the changes for vegetarians, everyone thought the venue was fab, nice to walk out to the lake for a leg stretch, and the staff did a grand job keeping the tea and coffee flowing.

Family Luchtime Gathering

We recently held a family gathering in the conservatory at Bourn Golf Club .Daniel and all of his team were excellent both at the planning stage and on the day. The food and service were both superb and nothing was too much trouble. I am sure we will be back for future functions.


Ruby wedding Anniversary Meal

Tony & I had our Ruby Anniversary lunch in the conservatory, with 63 guests ( incl. 5 little grandchildren).
The staff were amazing & many of our friends commented on the superb food& beautiful setting. So well run.

Wedding Reception April 2017

We cannot thank the staff enough for the amazing treatment we had at our Son and now Daughter-in laws wedding reception on the 8th April 2017.
The food was out of this world and the organisation was second to non, nothing was too much trouble down to dietry requirements of guests , to the children having everything they wanted.
If you want your special day made even more memorable go to Bourn.
The Gawthrop family and Guests.

40th Birthday Party

I cannot thank you enough for an amazing party. From the initial enquiry to the post party chat with Daniel the staff were amazing. The venue was perfect for a large birthday party. Nothing was too much trouble, at any time and I would thoroughly recommend this for all conference/party/wedding needs. We will be booking again for future events. Absolutely amazing!

Chairman Cambs’ Committee – G&WCT

On behalf of the G&WCT Cambs’ committee I wanted to thank you and your team for such a great evening last night.

Whilst the standard of food, service and smiles were as consistent as any other year I received compliments from so many people last night. Notably from those who chose the fish!

Providing for so many requires skill in and out of the kitchen, and my table noted how successfully your team managed the ‘crowd’.

The Quiz Night is a modest (but valuable) fund-raiser for us, however the focus remains the fun social aspect. Despite pretty tough quiz questions the smiles and laughter confirmed how successful the recipe.

Hoping we can repeat this in 2018,

Society Dinner

Evening Meal with Speaker

The London & South East Milling Society held an evening with talk, celebrating the birth of Charles Dickens. Alex the chef devised an innovative and mouth-watering British menu for the occasion. All the staff from Dan, Zara and Tracy were very helpful in the organisation, but the food was the star of the show. Alex did us proud and so may left saying wow, what food!

Golf Society

Just wanted to say thanks to the pro shop staff and bar staff on the 29th December when 20/24 of us played. Everyone was extremely helpful and the bacon rolls were excellent !

Pre-Christmas dinner

We have been coming now for 4 years as a group of up 70 people,and every year the meal has been excellent, the service has been excellent and the venue excellent. We cannot recommend it enough.

Health and Fitness Club Membership

Dear Health and Fitness Club Staff,
Thank you all so much for another very happy, warm, funny and welcoming year at Bourn Health Club. Thank you for keeping it all so inviting! With Best Wishes P Russell.

Wedding Reception

Our wedding reception was held at the Bourn Golf on Sat 22 Oct 16. I can’t thank Dan, Zara and Alex for the effort they put into making it such a fantastic day for us.

The way in which all the pre organisation was pulled together by Dan was easy and relaxed and he even went as far as ordering specialist beers in to keep my CAMRA aficionados friends happy.

The food put together by Alex was fantastic and all off the dishes served were off a standard which easily matches the best restaurants (mains were the lamb and Guinea Fowl).

The front of house on the day run by Zara was brilliant, the staff were happy, efficient and helpfully and really went out of their way to ensure that everybody had a great time. The finishing touch was put on by Rob Simpson of Rob Simpson photography who managed to get some brilliant and outstanding images.

All in all a fantastic day that Edna and I will treasure which was significantly enhanced by the venue staff and food.


A big thankyou to Dan, Zara and Alex for helping to make our Christening such a wonderful day to remember.

From taking the booking initially, and assisting us with different food and drink options. Welcoming our guests on the day with Pimms, and providing beautifully made sandwiches and cakes, we really couldn’t ask for more. Fantastic service and perfect venue.

I would recommend Bourn Golf Club for any private function based on our experience.

Mount Pleasant Senior Captains Away Day

Thank you Ian and all of your catering and green keeping staff for providing me with an excellent venue for my Senior Captain’s Away Day. We had 56 people participating which would have tested the resources and patience of many clubs. What we encountered at Bourn was a fabulous venue with hospitable and courteous staff as well as a course presented in top condition. During the day we met plenty of your members who all reflected the hospitable and friendly nature of Bourn Golf Club. The food was excellent and the atmosphere and facilities were perfect for our end of round meal and prize presentation. All in all a great venue!!

Wedding Breakfast Bourn Golf Club

wedding-breakfast-bourn-golf-club-september-2016We had our wedding here in September 2016 and the day was perfect, the venue had been set up beautifully and we was allowed to bring in our own bits to finish the final touches, which we was very grateful of as this made it very personal to us.
Daniel was a great help throughout the build up and on the day of the wedding, like all of the staff at the Golf club, nothing was any trouble to them.
The chef Alex was lovely, nothing was any trouble to him, especially as I had a few guests with a lot of different dietary requests and they were very happy with the variety of dishes Alex suggested.
Overall the food was excellent, venue excellent and the staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful.
Our day could not of been better. Thank you very much to everyone!

Ps the drive in the golf buggy’s for photos is something not to be missed, the grounds are so beautiful and you have lots of fun!

UK Sales Manager Foster refrigerator

We have had our annual Foster golf day at Bourn Golf Club for 10 years now. Its a wonderful course only exceeded by the superb hospitality offered by the staff.

Society Secretary’s

July 2016. Congratulations and thanks to Ian and the staff for hosting a really enjoyable golf day at Bourn. The friendly staff made us welcome and couldn’t have been more helpful.

All in all an excellent day thoroughly enjoyed by all of our members, so much so we will be returning next year.

Fruit and Testmonials

Fruit and Testimonials.

This was not the first birthday bash Bourn Golf Club have catered for us.
As a preview they did a twenty first for my son some 23 years ago when the landscaped verdant woodland was a thinly transplanted vista.
That was a good do with perfect weather and so a return trip to mark my turning 70 seemed a reasonable plan.

Dan and his team did us proud and the chef sorted out the boxes of fruit freshly harvested from Mr Hackers Fruit farm into a very palatable fruit salad with lashings of cream. The surplus slightly underripe black currants and gooseberries which I optimistically picked the day before are destined for the jam making vat.

The Hog-roast with all the usual trimmings seemed to power up the guests for energetic dancing as the evening progressed.

Thank you Dan another good party!

Camera club annual dinner

Dan, Just to say a big THANK-YOU to you all for making our camera club Annual Dinner such an enjoyable occasion. I got lots of enthusiastic thanks from the members at the end of the evening, commenting on the very good meal, delightful setting and ambience. A special thank-you to Alex for selecting the wide range of menu options and for making specific dietary specials for a few of us.

EATTA Meeting

Held our first General Meeting here in the Cambridge Suite, everything went off well. The staff were friendly, the room was laid out as requested. Food arrived on time and those wishing to play golf in the afternoon did so and had a fine time.
I received many compliments for arranging the day at such a great venue.

We will be back:-)………… Sheila Hutchings

Friendly, challenging and well-presented

Our request to return to Bourn is based on the experience we had last week when the course condition, particularly the greens, and the hospitality we received in the Seniors County match was first class. Please convey our sincere thanks to everyone involved. Our visitors were particularly impressed by the friendliness of staff in the bar, the pro shop and restaurant and resolved to return to enjoy the challenge of the golf course in the near future. Gerald O’Keane


To Everyone who helped at Becky and Tom’s Wedding a big THANK YOU for all your help.  They had a great day and we really appreciate all your hard work in making it so successful.  Philip and Belinda

JOHN’S 70th BIRTHDAY LUNCH – 11th June

Dear Dan and Team, I just wanted to thank you so much for the lovely lunch when we celebrated John’s BIG birthday. The food was delicious, and I think the portions beat everyone! Thank you to your Team for their thoughtfulness and efficiency – nothing was too much trouble for them. It was nice, too, to have the Conference Room – it meant that we had the room to ourselves so we didn’t interfere with anyone else’s celebrations. So thank you, again, so much. And a big thank you to Lynn for the innovative and truly scrumptious cake! Linda Cain

We will defo use again.


NSPCC Charity Day

Dear Ian, Thank you for the very generous support of Bourn Golf Club in hosting the NSPCC Charity Golf Day on the 19th May.  The event raised £880 for the charity’s and will be used to support the NSPCC ChildLine Schools Service SPEAK OUT! STAY SAFE! campaign, visiting all our primary schools in this region.  The extensive publicity for the event in surrounding villages, sports and golf clubs, on local radio and press, and on social media acknowledged the event sponsors prior to the event, and similarly so with post event coverage in Facebook.

On a more personal note, we would like to thank you for working so hard to help make the event the success it was both before and on the day, it is appreciated.  Thank you for kindly donating the Golf-Pro Session and for organising the Golf Pro-Shop vouchers in lieu of green fees.

Please could you also pass the charity’s sincere thanks to the Chef Alex who produced a suburb Lasagne lunch for the players and supporters, which was very well received by all.  We were most grateful for his flexibility with the timing of the lunch.  Yours Sincerely Kate

Dear Daniel, I would like to convey my thanks and gratitude on behalf of the Cambs and Hunts Ladies County Golf Association to all that helped make the event such a success and I know all the Ladies that played had a suburb time in-spite of the difficult conditions on the day and commented on the excellent condition of the course.  The support and goodwill shown to me made my job easy and it was a pleasure to work with you.

Many thanks Again Trina

Annual Dinner

Dear Daniel,  I haven’t been to the CPF Dinner before but I must say I was very impressed by the way it was run; from asking each table what they were eating, the lists on the tables and most of all in my mind the dinner was lovely and HOT.  So many places you go to and the dinner is just about lukewarm!  The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the room was very inviting.  Please pass on my personal thanks to all concerned.  Best Wishes D Smith 4th March 2016
