Whether you are looking to book space for your meeting, or planning your wedding, Lochland is one of the top choices for venue rental space in the Hastings, Nebraska area. Our two-story window overlooks the pristine course, our upscale clubhouse, and our kitchen crafts delicious dining menus. Behind the scenes, an entire full-service team led by our Banquet Manager is working to make sure your event is executed flawlessly.
All of these services and amenities are included in the competitive cost of our venue rental. Plus, venue use fees are waived for our Lochland Members!
What does full-service mean?
If you want to feel at ease in the planning process by having most of the decisions made all at once and in one place, a full-service venue is the perfect fit for you. Food and beverage selections, table layout, and venue logistics…done! Plus, you can ask our Banquet Manager for some new ideas; we’ve probably seen it before! The goal of a full-service event is to provide full venue support. This includes the setup of your event (tables, chairs, table settings, house decorations), the post-event take down of the event, and the cleaning of the space. You don’t have to worry about whether the caterer or your chair rental vendor is running late or out of the loop because they’re already here! Most of your wedding aspects won’t even leave the venue space.
Decor and setup
Our rental costs include details that are important at any event — everything from tables and chairs to linens and tabletop settings. For example, we provide the use of centerpiece décor, tables, chairs, linens, china, flatware and glassware. If you were to rent those items from your caterer (or elsewhere), you'd be charged quite a bit in addition, on top of the additional coordination and timeline management of each vendor. At Lochland, you can go to a few meetings with one point person, instead of having multiple meetings individually with each of your wedding vendors. Of course, if our decor is not your taste, you are welcome to bring in a little more flair to the space. We even pack up your decorations, so they are ready for you to pick up the next day.
Booking your own caterers can be expensive and stressful, especially if some of your guests have dietary requirements. Instead of trying numerous menus from many different caterers trying to find a taste that exemplifies your wedding style, we can provide you with the perfect high-quality meal! Outside catering normally requires a mediator between the catering company, the venue, and rental companies (for things like making sure electricity for heated dishes is available, and in a location that won’t conflict with the flow of the event or the servers). Often times, that responsibility falls on you, the person in charge of the event. Since our kitchen, service, and venue team are all housed under one roof, you won’t need to worry about logistics.
Other points to consider
- Parking with drive-through awning. Our private lot is reserved for use of our facilities only. Your attendees won’t need to worry about parking blocks away, or remembering where they left their car. Even better, during rain or snow storms, guests may drive right up to the front door, and drop off passengers under our protected awning.
- Locker rooms to get ready. For weddings, our locker rooms are the perfect space for wedding parties to put on the final touches before the ceremony or parties begin!
- Fully ADA accessible. Providing the best experience for every single attendee is our goal, including those with ADA needs. Our clubhouse interior is fully accessible to those in wheelchairs.
- Rental fees waived for our Lochland Members. Our clubhouse is your clubhouse, so we waive the costs associated with using space in the building.
