    My husband and I had our cocktail hour, reception and after party at The Sanctuary in late March of this year. Tim was wonderful to work with - he was incredibly responsive, listened and trouble-shooted with my family and I when questions arose and was genuinely fun to collaborate with! The Sanctuary was recently renovated and was the perfect backdrop for our reception. All of the staff was friendly and responsive to our energetic guests and they ensured that every detail was cared for - even down to a golf cart getaway car that brought my husband and I to the after party. Can't say enough wonderful things about the space, delicious food, and excellent service - highly recommend using!

The Sanctuary Golf Club is without doubt one of the premier wedding and event locations on the islands. It is certainly the best 'off water' setting by far. It is conveniently located minutes from the beaches. The clubhouse is set in a tropical setting in the middle of a preserve. From a photographers stand point, there are countless photo ops at this venue. From the wood laden locker rooms that provide a perfect back drop for 'getting ready shots', to the stunning architechture in the ball room. The wedding ceremony site is elegant and has a colonial vibe to it, again stunning for pictures. A resort or venue is only is good as its staff and I am happy to say I would give the staff a solid 'five stars' for their professionalism and their quality of service. Tim Gaccione is the point of contact at The Sanctuary. A first class planner and a pleasure to work with.
