    Beautiful venue and Amy is the absolute best!

    Our wedding was postponed due to Covid and Amy couldn't have been helpful and wonderful! The space is gorgeous and our guests are still raving about the food. Getting married with the views, the food, the ease and with Amy coordinating the day, it was truly the best day ever! I wouldn't look any further than Ancala!

    Outstanding

    This is such an incredibly beautiful venue for a wedding. The views are the best in the Valley, the location for the ceremony and reception outstanding, and pricepoint was beyond reasonable. Amy McKee - event coordinator for Ancala - was so easy to work with! She was extremely responsive and approachable, had fantastic ideas and recommendations, and never missed a beat. She was essentially the calm in the storm! Thank you Amy for all your hard work and heart of gold - it is so obvious that you love what you do!

    Perfect for Any Wedding--Even a COVID one!

    My husband and I were so lucky to have found this venue. We only had a month to plan because our other reception venue cancelled on us last minute due to their COVID policies. Not only was Amy extremely enthusiastic and quick to help us get approved to have the reception there, but she was constantly available to answer our questions for those next 30 days. Amy and the staff were so amazing with helping us have as "normal" of a reception as possible while still implementing safety guidelines. The food was delicious, outside and inside gorgeous, and everything went so smoothly. Such a wonderful experience!

    Thank you Elizabeth! It was a pleasure to work with you, Matthew and your families. I know it was unusual times and very stressful to make that last minute change. We are happy you found Ancala to take a little of that stress away.

    Simply the BEST!!!

    Our wedding experience was absolutely wonderful at Ancala Country Club! The venue, staff, food, and service was absolutely amazing!!!
    Amy, our coordinator, was readily available to answer any and all questions via phone or email. From our very first visit to our actual wedding day, Amy was nothing less than helpful and professional! Every question and concern we had was answered or dealt with, and her responses were always prompt! Amy was absolutely fabulous, and made the entire planning process so easy!
    We couldn't have been happier with our choice of Ancala Country Club for our wedding on 2/29/20. It was nothing short of AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about Amy and staff at Ancala CC. She worked with my fiance’ and myself to create the perfect wedding! From start to finish, it was more than we could have ever asked for. The service was amazing, the food DELICIOUS, and the drinks flowing all night! Amy was awesome and helped our big day go off without any issues! Our guests raved about the food and the gorgeous venue! We had a picture-perfect day thanks to everyone at Ancala CC, especially Amy! Thank you!

    MOB/Wedding Planner gives Ancala an A+ and a grateful thank you!

    From the beginning, Amy and her recommended vendors, had only one goal....to bring our vision to life! When our vision was limited, they had perfect suggestions! They were always available for “just one quick phone call”! When it came to the big day, everything was executed flawlessly and with amazing quality! They NEVER failed us! Amy personally is incredible as she has years of wedding experience at different positions, so in many ways, she helped in the pre-planning. Finally, at least go see this venue! It is incredible with panoramic views, cozy patio, and ballrooms. Something for everyone! From the plated meal to the service, to the beautiful venue...Ancala was the perfect location!

    Amazing Wedding Experience

    We had our wedding here last Saturday and it went flawlessly. Amy Mckee, the event coordinator, was so accommodating throughout the entire process. The food was excellent, the venue was beautiful and the staff was professional. I have gotten countless compliments from guests on how wonderful the venue was. I would HIGHLY recommend choosing Ancala Country Club for your wedding .

    Ancala iwasthe perfect setting for our daughter's wedding.

    Ancala was the absolute perfect venue for my daughter's wedding. The entire setting was gorgeous. The golf course, where the ceremony was held, the views from the balcony during the cocktail hour, the ballroom, where the dinner and dance were held, and the charming and romantically lit patio all worked together to provide for the perfect wedding. Additionally, the food and service was spectacular! So beyond what I imagined. It was as wonderful as any steakhouse one might visit. I must also throw a huge thank you out to Amy McKee, the on site wedding coordinator. She is amazing! The wedding came off so perfectly and that was largely due to Amy's expertise. I wish I had another daughter so I could throw another ANCALA wedding!!

    Best event coordinator and beatiful spot

    I have attended a number of events at Ancala Country Club and last fall we had our wedding celebration there and the service and food and beautiful location are always awesome.
    However, Amy, the event coordinator is the best part of this venue. She is so helpful, provides great recommendations and just does all she can to ensure your event is fabulous.

    Incredibly delightful!

    I highly recommend this venue for your wedding! It was absolutely perfect! We had 80 people but invited 100, and used their courtyard for both the ceremony and reception. The cocktail hour was done at the members bar. Amy, the coordinator, has been a delight to work with and her preferred vendors were all top notch (Deidre for flowers, and Eva for the cake), and the chef’s food was delicious!!!!

    Ancala is the place to be for events

    My wife and I were married here at the Ancala and when I say the members and Amy especially had our backs, we thank them every day for a wonderful process. Our pictures were phenomenal due to the wonderful scenery. Amy is a wonderful person/coordinator/Officiant she truly has a touch that you wont find in most people, a true joy to work with. Our food was delicious. All the staff and coordinators were great, even when I had forgotten a few things they made my vision more magical than ever. If we could give 20 stars we would you rock Ancala. Thank you again for a wonderful day.

    Highly recommend

    I can not say enough nice things about Ancala and Amy to do it justice. My now husband and I, researched for months , spoke to tons of event coordinators and when we went in to view the venue and speak with Amy we just knew it was the place to make our wedding visions come true! The food was absolutely delicious, all our guests were complementing our menu the entire night. The views from the outside ceremony location were beautiful, the cocktail hour on the patio was a fun transition spot from the ceremony to the reception. He reception room was perfect size with great lighting for all our special moments. Amy was such a blessing in all the chaos of wedding planning. Every question I had she happily answered in a timely manner, and on the wedding day there were zero bumps, everything flowed so smoothly with all the vendors because of Amy’s help.

    Perfect Choice for Arizona

    Everything about Ancala was wonderful. From the first meeting to the day of we felt special, important and that our day mattered to everyone on staff. We chose this location because of the view, price, and the professionalism and honesty of Amy, Director of Private Events. Our guests raved about the food, venue, views, EVERYTHING! We all had the best time and also had quite a few guests with dietary restrictions. Amy and the staff were very creative and accommodating to everyone. Also, there is an endless supply of beautiful photo op locations within Ancala!

    Our Magical Day!

    Ancala is a beautiful, tucked away venue in Scottsdale with a picturesque view of McDowell Mountains facing North East and Camelback/ Central Mountain Range facing Southwest. The venue offers a variety of ceremonial and reception environments. What we liked most...was how we can be on the beautiful golf course overlooking the mountains and sunset for ceremony, enjoy a quant, romantic cocktail area with Thomas Edison lights and have the ballroom wedding all within in steps of each other. The service is wonderful; Amy McKee takes pride in her service in organizing your perfect moments and helps customize a package that suits you best (which I can not say for several other venues). The appetizers and entrée selections are vast and excellent! Your guests will think it's just beautiful. Very quiet as well.

    Most amazing venue and staff!!

    My husband and I both agree we had the most amazing time at our wedding and that is thanks in large part to Ancala and everyone there. Their staff is so amazing and made sure our drinks and plates were always full. When we started planning they were always there to answer any questions and made it so easy and simple to get everything we wanted. Amy is so great and worked with my crazy Aunts and mother to help plan the wedding of my dreams. I would highly recommend this venue and the entire staff at Ancala.

    Beautiful Venue!

    Picking Ancala Country Club was the best decision. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. The view during the ceremony was breath taking. The cocktail hour was elegant on the patio. The reception area was spacious and you don’t feel crammed in.

    Amy is absolutely fabulous to work with. She is responsive any time you contact her. She is so laid back and really lets you make the space your own. On the day of the wedding Amy and her team really made everything flow so smoothly.

    I also want to mention the scenery for wedding pictures is amazing!!

    Amy Mckee and her event staff at Ancala have hosted our high school baseball banquet for the last 3 years. Each year we have been very pleased with the friendly and professional service they provide. The food is delicious too! We have 150 folks at our banquet each year and I have never heard a complaint.
