A Guide to Booking Your Royal Hawaiian Golf Course Wedding in Oahu

July 7, 2020


Hawaii is known for its beaches, but those who visit will soon discover that the lush green mountains and valleys are unparalleled in beauty. The Royal Hawaiian Golf Course is hidden in the heart of Kailua and embraced by the towering ridges of the Nuuanu Pali State Park. This location is perfect for couples who want a wedding in Oahu with an abundance of tropical greenery and a spark of adventure (Spoiler: this golf course venue comes with a cute set of mini wheels!).

If you’re hoping to say “I do” at this gorgeous venue, or if you’d like to learn more, follow along and we’ll go over all the details of booking your wedding in Oahu at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club!

✦ Royal Hawaiian Golf Course Booking Details

We offer morning ceremonies at 8:30 am & sunset at this venue. The Royal Hawaiian Golf Course arranges its own schedule, so we will inquire about their availability on behalf of the couple. Just like with any wedding in Oahu, it’s best to have at least three dates in mind for your ceremony.

We will take care of all communication with the venue, so you can simply relax and enjoy your vacation. The only time you may need to reach out is if you’re interested in a reception at their clubhouse restaurant — if so, we’ll be happy to put you in contact with the event planner at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club.

✦ Royal Hawaiian Golf Club Package Details

  • Bridal bouquet of your choice. See Bridal Bouquet Options

Other perks about having your wedding in Oahu at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club:

  • The venue also has a bridal suite that the couple has access to prior to the wedding ceremony to get ready in. 
  • The venue comes with a small golf cart/trolly that will take you around the property to take couples photos with your photographer. See more below!

Our package for this venue comes with a simple arch that elegantly draws the eye to the couple during the ceremony. However, if you’d like something more simple, you can opt to have no arch and let the tropical backdrop do the framing for you, or you can upgrade to include flowers and drapery for $600.  

Custom arches and Oahu wedding upgrades are also available. Pricing for custom arches depends on how elaborate the design is as well as individual quotes from our florists and vendors. Browse the photos above to get an idea of all the beautiful ceremony options that are available to you!

✦ Portrait Options at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club

Perhaps the biggest perk to having your wedding in Oahu at this venue is the sheer variety of gorgeous backdrops. The venue comes with a small golf cart/trolly that will whisk you around the property to capture you and your loved one against spectacular locales that will take your breath away. A rustic rock wall, rainforest greenery, stone bridges, and a serene pond are all part of the adventure!

Even the ceremony terrace itself has an abundance of photo opportunities! When you choose the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club for your wedding in Oahu, you’ll have the opportunity to sign your wedding license while the sacred valleys of the island bear witness. There’s also a variety of backdrops for group portraits just beyond the ceremony site that are easily accessible for guests of all ages.

✦ Reception Options at the Royal Hawaiian Golf Club

This venue has an onsite restaurant known as the ‘Olena on the ground level of their clubhouse. Receptions at the ‘Olena need to be made directly with the venue, so we’ll happily connect you with their events manager.

We do not plan receptions but would be thrilled to add reception flowers such as centerpieces or table garlands to add some “wow” to your reception decor. The Karma Hill Photography team also offers additional reception photography.
