    Wonderful experience! Highly recommend!

    We were so very pleased with Nicole, Victoria, and the rest of the team at MacGregor Downs country club. My daughter's wedding was beyond what we hoped for. I fully recommend MDCC for your wedding or any event. So many of our guests could not get over the amazing food. My daughter and son and law were so very happy with everything!

    Best Decision We Made!

    We had our wedding reception at the MacGregor Downs Country Club and it was such a wonderful experience! All of our guests raved about the food, and the staff was incredibly professional and catered to our every want and need! Nicole Moore, the catering coordinator, was fantastic. She helped us with so many decisions leading up to the party and she made everything we wanted happened with ease! Having Nicole was so helpful and saved us on having to hire a day-of-coordinator. She handled the schedule of events, menu, flower deliveries, rental deliveries, and band set-up. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Nicole and the MacGregor Downs staff. Having MacGregor Downs host our reception was the best decision we made! Also, you would assume having a country-club wedding would be very expensive, but it was very competitive priced. We looked at other venues and realized very quickly that MacGregor Downs was an excellent deal. You get the venue space, linens, chairs/tables, wait staff, a day-of-coordinator, and a huge selection of food for one flat rate which was very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this venue! Thank you MacGregor downs for such a wonderful experience!
