Best Day Ever
I cannot begin to express how happy I am with our decision to have our wedding at The Founders Club. First of all, the venue is absolutely stunning, the old Florida feel of the golf hall with the large front porch, beautiful landscape and flowers, not to mention the gorgeous golf course, large oak trees, expansive veranda with a fireplace, I could go on and on. In addition to being such a remarkably beautiful location, the staff is so amazing and worked so hard; the service was impeccable. From the time we arrived for hair and makeup to the time we left, the staff was always on top of things and made sure everyone was taken care of. One of the most important things to us was providing our guests with amazing food, drinks, and entertainment. The food was so incredible!! We received numerous compliments on how good it was as well as the service. I also have to express how wonderful Melody, the event manager, is! She was instrumental in making sure our vision was executed perfectly. Thank you to everyone at The Founders Club who helped to make our special day the best day ever!!Sent on 02/17/2020

What a Venue!
Not only was the venue absolutely phenomenal, but the service and staff were instrumental in making our wedding day as perfect as possible. Melody was with us, side-by-side, as she helped to bring our special day to fruition. And anytime we had a question, she was there to answer with tact. CB was also very helpful with both the bride and groom and we couldn’t be more thankful to everyone on the staff! The food was phenomenal! Thanks for making our special day that much better.Sent on 12/18/2019
