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 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 !!!Sent on 05/01/2019

Accommodating staff that made our day unforgettable
My husband and I got married at Great River on September 14, 2019. When we were searching venues, it was most important for us to work with an accommodating staff. The entire staff at Great River exceeded our expectations with every single element of planning for our wedding. They were professional, patient, flexible, responsive and kind throughout planning into the big day. We worked with Gail and Erin throughout the whole process and Gail, Erin and Lisanne on the big day. We didn't have a wedding planner ahead of the wedding day, so having Lisanne as our day-of wedding coordinator was such a lifesaver. The whole staff had smiles on their faces the whole day and made us feel so relaxed and happy. We didn't have to worry about a thing except enjoy our wedding day and they did so much solving behind the scenes that made everything look flawless. We can't recommend this place enough. The food had such high reviews from all of our guests, their management with the vendors was seamless and they were buttoned up and always available to answer all of our questions since Day 1.Sent on 10/20/2019

My husband and I got married at Great River Golf Course on August 31, 2019. I can not recommend this venue enough!!!!! - not only for the incredible scenery, but also because both Gail and Erin made our planning process and entire wedding day seamless and worry free. Gail answered my emails within hours, sometimes minutes, throughout the whole planning process and Erin made sure I was smiling and happy from start to finish on our big day. One of the best things about Great River is the brick breezeway because, unlike most other venues, it acts as an outdoor backup for unfortunate rainy wedding days. We thankfully didn’t have to use it, and got married at the gazebo, but you can still get married outside if it rains under the breezeway and not have to use the reception ballroom as both... we found that very unique and really important. GR is also relatively affordable compared to other venues in the area. Overall I would strongly recommend Great River as a wedding venue.Sent on 10/19/2019

Incredible venue! I had the privilege of performing here for a wedding cocktail hour - the space is magnificent!
Great River is truly a hidden gem! It is one of our favorite venue's to work in. The entire staff is so wonderful. From the moment a couple meets with one of their coordinators they will see how professional and amazing they will be to work with! There food is fantastic and service is great! A must see for any newly engaged couple. Danielle Farrer Flowers by Danielle,
