Easily reached from bustling cities, yet nestled within the remote countryside, Whistle Bear Golf Club (whistlebear.ca) is the ultimate venue for a getaway wedding feel (without the pricey airfare). A spectacular natural setting – complete with rolling hills, babbling brooks and a commanding forest – offers the privacy and exclusivity owed to any couple on their special day.

Spirited Staff Bring TLC to the WB
Special Events Consultant Nikki Northern was blown away the first time she toured the venue. “I myself am a newlywed, and I thought I had planned the perfect wedding day. Then I saw Whistle Bear for the first time…and my bubble was popped! I fell so in love with its charm, I just knew I had to work there.” She and her husband have since packed up their Toronto home so she can be closer to her dream job. For her, a noticeable advantage to the venue is its deeply dedicated staff. Planners who can be reached 7 days a week. Culinary experts who honour an Earth-to-Table food philosophy. A fleet of dependable Maitre d’s focused on ensuring flawless execution. The Whistle Bear team is devoted to bringing endless possibilities to fruition.
Tis the Season (Any Season!) to Say “I Do”
When asked what is trending lately at Whistle Bear, Consultant Raylene Laub cites “the rise of winter weddings, without a doubt. In fact, I very recently had a couple who intended on booking a summer date, but fell in love with the polar opposite idea! After seeing photos of a bridal party snowball fight, they turned to each other and agreed that exchanging vows in front of a roaring fireplace was undeniably romantic.” The venue does indeed have a remarkable ability to adapt to the changing seasons. It feels as natural to sip chilled sangria on a sun-soaked terrace as it does clutching a warm mug of cider while roasting fire pit marshmallows. Every time of year is special at Whistle Bear.
