This review is based on my experience planning my engagement at Recreation Park Golf Course 18. My family and I worked closely with Juliann and Nalysia, who were always helpful and available to answer our questions. They also did an excellent job at accommodating any of our request the best they could. Planning events can be stressful, but it is a peace of mind when you trust the people putting it together. This was not my family's first event here, and something tells me it won't be our last. Two years ago, we also had my college graduation party here, and it was equally wonderful!
Through out the evening of my engagement party I heard from countless family members and friends how beautiful everything looked. This venue is really something magical, with its high ceilings, beautiful draping, and enchanting chandeliers! The patio area is also really nice, but unfortunately we didn't have the warmest of weather in the evening so I don't believe the patio was used as much as it could or would have been on another day with warmer weather. We had 98 people attend our party and everyone fit perfectly! The banquet staff did an fantastic job with our buffet and helping the whole evening go smoothly. Everything went just as planned, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!!

Excellent venue with professional and courteous staff.
We had ourNovember 10th wedding here. Juliann and Vanessa were great, helpful, and accommodated every request. Our ceremony was great, the food tasty, and the service was impeccable. This venue was perfect for our mid size wedding. It has a rustic charm. The staff at Park Rex are pros and pulled off our wedding flawlessly.

My Wedding Day was Amazing!
This venue is absolutely gorgeous! I immediately fell in love with the wooden ceiling. Juliann and Vanessa were so easy to work with. All my emails were answered in a promptly manner, that’s another reason why my husband and I chose this place. The communication was perfect. Our wedding day was amazing, and the staff was super helpful.

This is a great location for an event. The event coordinators are very knowledgeable and helpful. It's nice that the facility has many options for both the ceremony & reception. I have been to many events at this location and it is always well maintained. The food is excellent and I am without exception, always impressed with the friendly staff. What a great, worry free place for an event.
I've had the pleasure to work with Katelyn, and can I just say, she is a class act! When you have a professional that knows their job, and loves what they do, it makes a world of difference for their clients and their vendors. Her professionalism and attention to detail is apparent from start to finish.
Great staff and the recent remodel makes this intimate venue vary adaptable to any type of decor and is centered by a large and lovely fireplace. The cocktail reception courtyard is private and allows for great mingling amongst your guests. Great for a couple who wants a venue with character and a friendly staff along with a central location.
