“When we chose Whitesands at Shoal Bay Country Club for our wedding reception venue, we struck gold! Nicole, Tiarne & the rest of the SBCC team are so friendly, professional & accommodating - they made it all so easy for us and we would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.

We cannot fault SBCC and their staff, their service for our wedding day was so professional and structured. Nicole and the events team were always contactable and lined everything up so smoothly ahead of the day. Highly recommend the SBCC as a venue for future couples getting married!
