Extraordinary Location, Extraordinary Service!!!
My fiance and I wanted a truly special and memorable destination wedding in the Palm Springs area. We considered several potential locations but KNEW we had found the place when we visited the Indian Wells Golf Resort after first reading about it on Wedding Wire and other top online wedding sites.
The location itself is spectacular - beautiful golf course with exquisite views of the surrounding mountains - but the Wedding Pavilion is the real show stopper. This gleaming white, permanent tent-like structure was the perfect place to host our reception.
We chose to be married on the adjacent lawn and afterward, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the Pavilion terrace. Numerous guests commented on the servers and the quality of service at the cocktail hour as well as inside at the reception. The space is grand and dramatic inside and lends itself to any decor. One entire side is a wall of floor to ceiling windows that open out to the terrace and golf course. There is also a large, comfortably and thoughtfully decorated bridal suite attached to the Pavilion that made getting ready and accommodating my family and bridal party a breeze.
Event Coordinator, Sharon Clark, made it effortless to plan my dream wedding there and couldn't have been more knowledgeable, helpful or responsive. Catering Manager, Harry Reuter, was also a true pleasure to work with and saw to our every food and beverage need - including making sure that the champagne, both inside the bridal suite and at the reception - was kept ice cold! The food was excellent and reasonable and our guests were so well taken care of by the staff. Valet parking is free and a fleet of golf carts shuttle guests across the bridge to the Pavilion and back again so older guests and those in high heels have a minimum of walking to do to get to the event or to return to their cars.
Many of the posh Palm Springs-area hotels charge almost 2 to 3 times as much for a reception. We found that the Indian Wells Golf Resort was not only a magnificent location, but also an excellent value. And, their chef, Nestor Ruiz, has worked at some of the top restaurants and steak houses in Southern California - and it shows!
Oh, and the venue has absolutely gorgeous locations for photography! Our photographer was taken around the property before the wedding by Event co-coordinator, Leslie Graham, to scout out locations for our photos in advance. After the wedding, Leslie zipped us around in her golf cart to each location, helping us make the most of the daylight still remaining and keeping us fresh and rested in between shots. She had cold water for us along the way which was very thoughtful and kept us cool and hydrated!
All in all, our wedding day was magnificent and effortless from start to finish and we cannot recommend the Indian Wells Golf Resort highly enough to future brides and grooms!

Love, love, love iwgr
IWGR was an amazing venue to work with for our wedding! Sharon was great to work with and super helpful throughout the entire planning process. She made sure everything went as smooth as possible from the beginning stages of planning up until checking in to make sure our day was everything we had hoped it to be. The staff at IWGR was wonderful to work with as well. The food and service was better than we could have hoped for and we would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a venue with true California vibes (palm trees, mountains, and grass…what more could you ask for!?). We loved our wedding and it is thanks to the IWGR team that this was possible!Sent on 07/15/2019
