Bear Trap is so AMAZING!!!
Bear Trap was absolutely amazing to work with. Chelsea was there to help us from day one. From first touring the venue, to food tasting, to meeting with us and answering our questions whenever we needed, she was AMAZING! Due to having our entire wedding outside, I was unable to be there to help set up the venue the day of the wedding, but Chelsea assured me she would handle everything, and she sure did! It was more amazing than I could have ever imagined and the entire staff was so great to work with. I cannot say enough about this great venue and staff!Sent on 08/24/2020

Beautiful venue with an amazing staff!
My husband and I chose Bear Trap as our venue for our wedding on 9/15/18, and we couldn't be happier with our decision! The primary issue we were having in our venue search was getting responses when we had questions. This was not the case with Bear Trap Dunes. Erin, Chelsea, and Craig were all very responsive to any email or phone call and assured that all of our needs were met. I can't say enough about them and their willingness to be so flexible, even with a hurricane in the forecast that looked as though it was going to hit the day of. Chelsea made sure that we were on the same page so that even if it did hit (luckily it went south), we had the plan down and I had full trust that things would go smoothly. The food was amazingly prepared by Jessie and his staff. He was very flexible in allowing us to create the menu we pictured and it all turned out PERFECTLY. The staff was very accommodating and so helpful. We still to this day get compliments on how well everyone was treated. The clubhouse and course are absolutely beautiful and made for amazing pictures! Everyone especially loved the outside area with the firepits looking out on the course. If you are in search of the perfect venue with an amazing staff and coordinators, look no further!Sent on 01/02/2019

I was married in January and our reception was at Bear Trap. Erin and the entire Bear Trap staff went ABOVE and BEYOND to make our wedding everything we dreamed of. Erin was easy to work with and was always available to talk, wedding related or not. She was willing to do anything and everything to help alleviate stress...including offering to help make my hotel gift bags. I always dreamed of a winter wedding and Erin made sure my rustic winter beach theme carried through the entire reception. Erin, and the entire Bear Trap staff even bent over backwards to ensure my favorite food was including on the wedding night...my night was capped off with the most epic hot dog bar you could ever imagine. Yes...odd request... but it just goes to show the team at Bear Trap will do anything to help make your wedding dreams come true. Not only was bear trap the perfect venue...the food was AMAZING. Craig helped customize our menu to exactly what we wanted and was extremely knowledgeable in regards to food. He was able to make suggestions based on what we liked and what fresh foods were in season (which was January in our case).Sent on 03/21/2018
Cannot say enough great things about Erin and the entire Bear Trap crew!
Bear Trap Dunes is becoming one of my favorite golf courses to photograph at. Erin is a delight to work with and the venue itself is very picturesque.
