About Makray Memorial Golf Club

Perfect venue to make your day perfect!

Leeza, Laurie, and Linda are phenomenal. They go out of their way to assist you in every way possible. The venue itself is beautiful and well maintained. The ranger takes a lot of pride in his course ... Read more and it shows and makes for great photos. Even after the event was over the team on-site was extremely helpful in the clean-up and getting us all our stuff to go home. We couldn't thank this team enough for making our day everything we dreamed of and more.

Makray was wonderful! We got married here just over two weeks ago. I don’t know how I would have gotten through everything without Leeza! The whole team was so supportive. Chef did a fantastic job and ... Read more everyone loved the food! The vegetarian tart was by far my favorite ever! I would got back just to have it again! My advice to couples is to have everything labeled and map out how you want any extra special details, or talk to them to have them note it. They will make sure it gets done!

If I could get married over and over again, I would continue to choose Makray. Laurie and Leeza were such a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions were ... Read more answered. They also took the time to show us exactly how our potential linen choices would look in the ballroom! This definitely gave me peace of mind, rather than seeing it all come together for the first time on the Big Day. Our guests also RAVED above the food, service and the beautiful views. But that was no surprise to me and my husband! ;) Thank you Makray for making our dream wedding come true!!!
