    Beautiful venue

    Beautiful place for any occasion. We had our wedding here and Victoria was so helpful and very efficient. She communicates and gets things done. She worked with Us through this whole process. With the all inclusive package They do everything and you just show up for your event. Food was so delicious we still get compliments on how good the food was. You have the choice to be inside or use the beautiful tent outside. We had a beautiful wedding, thanks to Macgregor Downs country club and Victoria.

    Seamless planning, beautiful wedding day, stunning venue

    We’re really glad we chose MacGregor Downs Country Club as our venue. Most things are provided on-site, even including some decorations, and I didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was delicious, and the golf course and lake made a beautiful backdrop for photos. There is no real bridal suite per se but they did a really good job setting up the Highlands/Islay room–right next to a couple single-occupancy restrooms–with mirrors and chairs and a garment rack, and even had muffins and mimosas for us when we arrived. The deck off the Lakeside room was even perfect to get some air as the party raged on inside. My only complaint is that the contact changed several times, but each person was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable; we had no issues.
