We toured about 10 venues in the Twin Cities when we moved here last year and decided to get married in our new home town. We were looking for a place that was classic, connected with the ourdoors, and personal. Mendakota Country Club was all of these items and more! The clubhouse itself is simple and beautiful with high wood ceilings which is a lovely backdrop for any decorations. The grounds of the country club and the golf course were absolutely gorgeous, especially in August, when all the flowers are blooming and the sunshine is warm. Perry, the coordinator at Mendakota, was so fun to work with - that man has personality and is VERY good at what he does! He gave us great suggestions on how to best spend our budget to maximize the vision we imagined. He knew the important things to do to support traditions, like a wine pour and a signature drink, and he was also very flexible to let us decorate the way we wanted. He helped us to determine the layout of the room to hold our 130 guests, a big harvest table for the bridal party and their dates, and a band with a ample dance floor. It turned out absolutely awesome!! Also the food was very good. We had salmon and filet mignon, and we received so may comments from our guests on how perfectly cooked they were! The waitstaff were exceptional and did so many small things to make the day special, including opening doors for guests, caring to small decoration details, cleaning plates/drinks in a timely manner, and helping guests with random requests. We were extremely impressed with everything!!!! Highly recommend this venue.Sent on 09/04/2017

We had our wedding reception at Mendakota, and we can't recommend it highly enough! We looked at a number of venues, and Mendakota was by far the best value around. It is a beautiful country club, with immaculate grounds and classic detailing throughout. It wasn't necessary to spend much on décor, as the venue itself is already so lovely. The staff is very professional and easy to work with - Perry was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. He had excellent advice for us in planning our reception, and we were confident that everything would be handled well. We were so delighted with how everything turned out - we could not have chosen a better venue for our reception. We still hear compliments to this day; from the elegance and beauty of Mendakota to the excellent service and food (the food here is incredible!), everything was superb. We also hear rave reviews from everyone about the friendly bartenders and the high quality of the drinks they made. All in all, everyone had a wonderful time, and we could not be more pleased with Mendakota Country Club.Sent on 08/30/2019

Mendakota Country Club is a beautiful golf course in Mendota Heights and we love the opportunity to head out there. From a DJ's perspective, they have a house system and microphone which makes it easy to hear speeches and announcements, while still easily hearing the background music. Then once the dance starts, the DJ is right in front of the dance floor which is on the far side of the room. The set-up works perfectly and the staff is always very helpful and kind.
Class Act has played her many times over the years and they consistently do a great job. They have been recommending us to their clients because we can do the ceremony including officiant and reception dance to the highest of standards.
We loved all our shots we got from Mendakota Country Club! The place was absolutely beautiful and team there were incredibly helpful and were always willing to go above and beyond. We can't thank them enough!
