So, the wedding and reception are at the same location?  I think it would be ok to put at the bottom of the wedding invitations “Outdoor reception to follow” or “Open-air reception to follow” or something like that.

I would just list the Golf Course as the venue then work with their staff to ensure there was clear signage directing guests to th proper location.

I second just working with the venue. I am sure they already have a system as they must deal with double weddings frequently. I attended a wedding in a similar situation (but was attending the ballroom reception not the tented reception). Everyone naturally went outside but before we got near to the tent, there was a sign directing the two weddings and we realized we were inside. Wait staff should also know in order to direct lost guests. Other than that, I would just spread the word via a website or word of mouth. My biggest concern is to warn women not to wear stilettos so as not to sink into the grass.

@slicey19:  What she said, especially about the stilettos.
