Excellent experience all the way around
Our wedding reception at Great River was perfect! From the professionalism of the staff, to the quality of the venue and the food, just a perfect day for us in every way. Gail and Erin were responsive to our requests, even the last minute changes and they truly enjoy their work. I can't recommend this venue highly enough. There was no stress at all from the initial preparation to the final review. Gail and Erin made our experience so enjoyable down to the very last detail. Chef Michael's food was incredible and the ease of working with the staff makes this venue a wonderful place to have a reception. Even with all the rain on the day of our wedding, the grounds were beautiful and Erin braved the weather with us, just to make sure we were happy with every aspect of our day. We could not be happier with the whole experience with Great River and with Gail and Erin specifically. They are amazing!

I got married and had my reception in October 2018 at Great River and could not have asked for a better experience. Everyone was very helpful and Gail and Lisanne were very accommodating and attentive. Our guests are still saying how beautiful Great River was, how great the food was and how it was one of the best weddings they had attended. I would highly recommend them to any couple looking for a wedding and/or reception venue.

The team at GR were fantastic. We looked at over 20+ venues before we decided due to the pricing and outdoor ceremony space. The entire property is fantastic. The back-up for the outdoor ceremony is great because you are covered and still outside. We didn't have to use it, but in case weather was bad we could. Gail and Julianne were probably the most organized people we met. They listened to everything we requested and returned ten fold. They made our day so perfect and stress free. I highly recommend renting out Monty's grille for cocktail hour so you can have the entire property to yourself. Food was delicious. bridal and groom suites were amazing. Waterfall for pictures was beautiful and a complete surprise when we saw it the first time. Friday pricing was great and you have all day to relax and we were able to get in early to set up and prepare for the day. Thank to everyone at GR who made our day special. It was truly fantastic and we will never forget everything you did on our wedding day! We will certainly be back to visit!
The Great River Golf Club is a beautiful venue. There staff is awesome, there food is great. The room feels very intimate and cozy. Two thumbs up!
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,
