Made my dreams come true

I literally cannot say enough about Great River. They made my wedding dreams come true. Gail, Erin, and the team there made sure my wedding was everything I wanted and more. I didn't have to worry the ... Read more day of they set up everything for us. They treated me like a princess. The grounds itself are so beautiful its breath taking. My guests couldn't stop talking about the wedding as whole. The food was good the bartenders were very responsive with no lines waiting for drinks. If I could do my wedding over again I wouldn't change this venue at all

Wedding Review

We got married on April 27, 2019 and I cannot say enough good things about Great River Golf Club. This venue is a beautiful combination of elegance an intimacy. I worked with Gail, Erin and Julianne ... Read more and they are all wonderful in their own way. The day of our wedding we felt no stress at all and I wish I could relive that day everyday at Great River. My favorite thing about Great River is that it is an intimate setting and they only hold one wedding at a time. As a bride, this was a big deal for me. To all future brides, I will recommend Great River Golf Club for my entire life !!!

GR exceeded our expectations!

Where do I even begin… My (now) husband and I had our wedding reception at Great River Golf Club this summer— we cannot thank the staff enough! From the first meetings to the sparkler sendoff they ... Read more fulfilled all of our expectations, plus more! Gail, Erin and Julianne made us feel completely comfortable and did whatever it took to make us feel stress-free and at ease. They went above and BEYOND to take care of all of our needs and wants. Their level of professionalism is outstanding - from the early days of planning to the execution of the event, they never once failed to accommodate. The day of the wedding Julianne ensured that I ate, stayed hydrated, fixed my dress & makeup during the photo shoot and even helped put on the heel stoppers on my shoes to ensure I wouldn’t damage them as I walked through the grass. My favorite drink is a lychee martini and although they had never heard of this drink, they researched and were able to make quite a delicious lychee martini on the day of the wedding—these ladies know customer satisfaction! The space is incredible, and they nailed our vision in every way (even surprised us with the chairs I wanted). The FOOD...AMAZING. All of our guests commented about how delicious the food was, and how they couldn't get enough of it. They raved about how attentive the staff were. Our friends and family also couldn't believe how smoothly everything ran. This proved how incredibly well the entire team works together to ensure that every moment of the day ran seamlessly. We can't thank the team enough for the time and effort they put into making this truly, the best day ever!!
