I rarely rate anything with the highest score across the board. River Oaks Golf Course is one experience I have to give across the board top scores. Their only limit is the size of their reception area. Everything else was simply outstanding. The preparation work with Sue was top notch. The decorations and room set up were great. Very easy and flexible to work with. The food was simply outstanding and hit of the night (other than my father/daughter dance of course). And to top it off, it is a great value that only the bride's family is aware of! I would highly recommend considering and using this venue for a wedding. I have 4 more daughter's to marry, so I'll put my money where my comments are!Sent on 12/22/2015

Sue, Russ and the staff truly made our ceremony absolutely perfect. The ceremony took place at the gazebo with a beautiful view of the River. The river is not close to the property but you are able to get beautiful photos with it in the background! Absolutely stunning pictures!! The chairs along with set up and take down are all included in the outdoor ceremony fee. Luckily we did not have rain on our wedding day but, if we did they move everything inside. Really put us at ease.Sent on 07/29/2014
The banquet room is absolutely gorgeous!! The drapery with lighting added so much elegance to the facility. They have a beautiful back bar with a patio that is for your wedding guest to enjoy. The staff is always on their toes trying to make you day absolutely perfect! They are willing to set up anyway you want it which allowed us to personalize our wedding even more!
The food was superb! Our guest gave us too many complements to count! Everything was perfect!! Could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding!

Sue O'Connell, who is the event coordinator, is an absolute pro! But, her team was full of above-expectation go-getters. We were thrilled with how the venue looked, the service we got, but we also felt like the team was extraordinary. Our guests LOVED the food - CHICKEN!! - and they were so easy to work with.Sent on 05/20/2014
