We had our wedding at The Founders Club on 1/7/17 and everything went perfect! Our coordinator was Ashley and she was wonderful throughout the entire process and very accommodating with our schedules. She was very responsive to our questions and needs throughout the planning process and provided recommendations when we needed them. Our day of weather was not good but Ashley made sure that everything was organized and perfect and that I had nothing to worry about.Sent on 01/26/2017
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, not your typical golf course venue. They have several oak tree sites available for the ceremony which were all beautiful and they have a gorgeous outdoor wood verandah which we held the dancing portion of our wedding on due to rain and it turned out beautifully with the bistro lighting. The menu options were great and pricing was definitely reasonable. I would definitely consider them for your wedding!

The Founder's Club is an absolutely beautiful venue that can accommodate any bride's vision. There are so many options to choose from when setting up the layout. They also take pride in the food they serve and it was delicious! Ashley Kilmer was the best event coordinator to work with. She worked with us for over a year and kept us on track for our timeline and helped us consider all the little details-some things that we had not even thought about.Sent on 11/06/2016
