Great venue, great location with great pricing. They have several colors of linen to choose from, rose petals for the aisle, white chairs for ceremony and silver/grey chairs for reception. You can always upgrade from this too. This venue has beautiful views of the golf course, desert and the mountains-you get to choose what view you want for the ceremony - Gainey Ranch area is my favorite part of town. We had the ceremony outside with reception inside. Lauren was great to work with. Quick at responding to questions, flexible, professional, friendly, and laidback. The food (we had buffet) was delicious!! Employees were welcoming and attentive. All of our friends and family raved about the food and venue. We knew this was our location once we looked at it and met with Lauren. Thank you for making our day so wonderful!Sent on 03/20/2019

This was a GREAT venue and we and all our guests loved it. The wedding and reception were perfect. Lauren Ogle was the best person to work with. She took such great care of us and was so easy to work with. She made a huge difference in our selection of using this venue. Highly recommend it.Sent on 11/29/2018

Love love love!
Lauren and her team are hands down the most wonderful group of people I have ever met throughout my entire wedding planning process. First Impressions: My (now) husband and I first met Lauren after a terrible experience at a hotel venue. We were SET but the staff at that venue were horribly rude and inflexible with any simple request. We were heart broken and back to square one. I decided to scan the Knot for non-hotel options... you know, just to see. Gainey Ranch Golf Club was the third venue we visited and we instantly knew it was for us. We walked up through a gorgeous fountain and pond; and Will & I were greeted with a smile. Lauren was cheerful, upbeat, welcoming and did not seem to mind the probably way too long Q&A. We were in love! Fast forward a few months & over a year before the wedding: Lauren was more than eager to meet and discuss our linens - even though it was probably way too early to look at anything by typical industry standard timeline... Lauren then sent me the information for her linen girl at BBJ Linens and helped me finalize all the beautiful linen details by surprising me with napkins that matched the bridesmaids' dresses perfectly. Next, she invited us to a preferred vendor event where we met with and chose our amazing wedding planner, Stylish Events by Lisa Foster. (Spoiler alert: Lauren & Lisa are rockstars together and created my Pinterest vision perfectly!) Shortly after, we brought our family in for a showing. Lauren & her staff were just as friendly to our parents. She welcomed everyone with the same enthusiasm as she initially greeted Will & I with and was always her bubbly-self. The middle months were less consumed with in person meetings and involved probably hundreds of emails. We would email Lauren about everything -- switching our wine choices, changing our chicken option, changing our room set up, inquiring about Serbian traditions, where to take our photographs, our photographer issues, who to use for transportation to/from the venue and preferred hotel... dozens of things! Lauren always was quick to respond, efficient in her answers and friendly as can be! Even though you rationally know that she has hundreds of emails pouring in per day by dozens of brides and other event staff, she always made you feel like she spent hours on your response, was perfectly thorough and eager to help. Working with Lauren was a complete 180 from our original hotel venue -- and for the better!! She was beyond accommodating! Food & Drinks: I will be honest, I've never had better salmon. The food was phenomenal! Our guests RAVED over the dishes and the drinks. Everything was delicious and everyone was pleased with our event & signature drinks. We were also very happy with the wine selection in the top bar package. Extras: When you book at Gainey Ranch Golf Club, you are provided a cake with their NEW preferred vendor, Pixy Cakes. Tina at Pixy Cakes was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond for our tasting and allowed us to sample more than usual. Her cake was delicious and everyone raved about it afterwards! She was also a detail master and our modern-themed all white cake looked perfect! All in all, Lauren and her team made our day perfection. I could not have found a more easy-going woman to work with. She was a detail queen and tolerated my overly type-A excel spreadsheets. If there is ever a need for an event, I will highly consider GRGC again in the future! Thank you!Sent on 11/08/2018

Amazing experience and reception!
We absolutely loved having our wedding at Gainey Ranch Golf Club. Lauren and her team were second to none and made my husband and I feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. Our guests could not stop raving about the food, service, venue, etc. I actually miss talking to Lauren regularly and will always recommend Gainey Ranch for any and all events!Sent on 01/26/2019

Lauren · Married on 11/17/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club was the perfect place to have our wedding. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and provides a wonderful backdrop for pictures. But what makes Gainey truly special is the staff and the service they provide. Lauren, the director of private events, was a pleasure to work with. She was always so responsive and patient in answering my many questions. We've received so many compliments on the food from our wedding - everything was delicious and the staff working the wedding were very professional. Thank you to Lauren and everyone at Gainey for making our day unforgettable.Sent on 12/04/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:You are so sweet, Lauren! Thank you for your wonderful review - we absolutely loved working with you and wish you and Paul endless love and happiness!
Jamie · Married on 11/03/2017
Gainey ranch golf club was such an amazing wedding venue. We loved our entire experience but Lauren was the best. We worked with her for over a year and she goes above and beyond. We looked at so many venues and Lauren pretty much sealed the deal for us. We had the best day ever and highly recommend this venue.Sent on 11/12/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:I love that you looked at a ton of venues and came back to Gainey, Jamie! It was an honor to be a part of your special day - you and Stacy are so fun to work with and I am incredibly appreciative your stellar review. Looking forward to keeping in touch with you two! Hugs, Lauren
Kristine · Married on 09/30/2017
My husband, Aubry, and I are from Chicago, and our wedding was this past weekend at Gainey Ranch Golf Club. We had the most amazing experience with this venue! Because we're from out of town, a lot of the planning and communication was done through email. Lauren made the process so easy and enjoyable by being prompt and detailed in her responses. When we were in town for our menu tasting and final walk-thru, it was like visiting with a friend, and we truly enjoyed her company. We held both our ceremony and reception at Gainey, and the evening was just magical. If you have a certain vision for your wedding, you can rest assure that Gainey can pull it off with all that they are able to offer and the amazing relationships they have with local vendors. Almost all of our guests were from out of town, and they continue to rave about how beautiful our wedding was. Our photographer was able to find great spots for photos, even during the brightest times of the day. Gainey is also able to accommodate a sparkler exit, which makes for a memorable ending. As you can see, we can go on and on on why we would continue to pick Gainey if we had a chance to do it all over again. Thank you to Lauren and the rest of the staff for our dream wedding and the seamless planning that went to it! We have enough memories to last us a lifetime.Sent on 10/03/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:We love our Chicago couples and you and Aubry are no exception, Krissy! It was so wonderful working with you - you made our process just as easy by your prompt responses and attention to detail. I love hearing that we made it a bit easier for you, especially since a lot of your planning took place almost 2,000 miles away! We are sending love to you and Aubry and hope you'll visit the next time you're in Scottsdale! Hugs, Lauren

I can't say enough good things about Gainey Ranch and Lauren Ogle! This place and the people were fantastic! My husband and I orginally had our wedding planned at a different venue but after a horrible 3 months of planning we were on the search for a new venue. Dealing with wedding stress and switching to Gainey Ranch Golf Club was defintiely a blessing in disguise. When we first met with Lauren you could tell how much she loves her job. She is ethusiastic, super responsive and detail oriented. I sent her many emails and she always responded within a timely manner and never seemed annoyed by my multiple questions. She was honest and upfront about everything. She always made me feel like my wedding was a priority, which is very important when you are planning the wedding of your dreams. When I walked into the reception room, I was amazed by how beautiful everything was. The rest of the staff was also great. All of the servers and the bar tender were very friendly and accomodating. The golf team made sure that my husband and his buddies enjoyed their round of golf and everything was set up smoothly. I also received numerous compliments on the food. I was a little worried about how the steaks were going to be cooked but they came out perfect! It was a memorable night and I can't thank Gainey and Lauren enough!Sent on 06/17/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:You and Kyle are a stunning couple and your wedding was nothing less! Thank you for choosing Gainey, Brittany! I love hearing that we eased your stress and that even Kyle and his buddies got to enjoy the perks of the golf club with his golf outing! We are thinking of you both as you enter this new journey together! Hugs, Lauren
Debbie · Married on 05/20/2017
Lauren, the Private Events Director, went above and beyond in assisting with the planning of the wedding of our daughter. After meeting Lauren, she was definitely one of the main reasons we chose Gainey Ranch Golf Club. Her assistance was invaluable. We looked at other venues, and while Gainey Ranch was not the cheapest, they were not the most expensive as well. The open house with its display of vendors was a huge help in deciding on which vendors to use. The ballroom looked magical, the food was delicious, and the service was impeccable.Sent on 06/01/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:Thank you so much for your shining review, Debbie! Kristen and Adian's wedding was pure perfection - so beautiful and full of love!
Lindsey · Married on 05/13/2017
My total wedding experience (pre to post wedding) at Gainey Ranch Golf Club was AMAZING!! I looked at roughly 20 venues in the valley and when I stepped foot at Gainey and Met the private events director - Lauren Ogle I knew this venue was perfect! I met with Lauren to take a tour and discuss all they have to offer and felt so comfortable and confident with their venue and staff. It was so wonderful to get all my initial questions answered, see the space, and even brainstorm ideas on the spot privately with their private events director. She had an iPad there and showed me lots of pictures of previous weddings for inspiration. Our tasting was wonderful and we LOVED the food! The entree and appetizer options are awesome and they have tons of choices from more traditional to unique dishes. All communication was so smooth with Lauren for the wedding - she was very responsive with emails, questions, etc. I cannot emphasize how amazing she is to work with!! We even set up a round of golf for family and friends the Friday before the wedding and it was so easy to make tee times and all were raving about how awesome the course was! The actual wedding was beyond perfect, the timing of everything flawless. The flow from the ceremony lawn, to the cocktail hour, to reception was beautiful! The reception space is beautiful with big windows and lots of ways to set up the room. I'm literally running out of space here, so in conclusion: its PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL! The event staff and Lauren are AMAZING! Food is AWESOME esp. the risotto, You will be so happy if you chose Gainey Ranch GC for your special day : )Sent on 06/29/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:Lindsey! You're so sweet - thank you so much for your review. Your wedding still leaves me breathless with how beautiful everything was! You were such a pleasure to work with and get to know throughout your planning process and I wish you and Philip nothing but the absolute best! Hugs to you both, Lauren
Cassidy · Married on 05/06/2017
I can't say enough wonderful things about Gainey Ranch Golf Club & especially about Lauren Ogle, their private events director! Gainey Ranch was the PERFECT venue for our wedding and Lauren and her team went above and beyond to make everything exactly how we wanted! Lauren is the most responsive person I've ever worked with, always quick to answer, helpful and happy. We planned our Arizona wedding from Texas, and I am so grateful for Lauren's willingness to work with us from a distance. Lauren always went above and beyond -- one perfect example (although there are MANY), was when my husband and I were having trouble choosing our appetizers, Lauren threw one extra in for us for free. We also used Gainey's preferred vendor list to find most of our vendors, all of whom were also wonderful. The food at Gainey is phenomenal, the venue is absolutely gorgeous, all the support staff are great -- I genuinely only have good things to say! I would recommend this venue to anyone!!Sent on 05/25/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:I can't decide what I love most about this review! Thank you SO much, Cassidy! It was such a pleasure being a part of your special day - I loved all of the vendors you chose, loved your color scheme, loved your cake toppers (omg the baby cacti) and especially loved working with you. I hope Austin, TX is treating you and Chris well! Lots of love to you both, Lauren
Shannon · Married on 02/11/2017
Gainey Ranch Golf Club was the perfect setting and venue for our ceremony and reception! It was a seamless transition between the ceremony and cocktail hour and then cocktail into reception! Lauren at Gainey is the best site coordinator we talked to at any venue and she made deciding to book this venue that much easier! She even worked with us when we had to special order a liquor for my husband's signature drink, and when we changed our linens 2 weeks before the wedding! Lauren and Gainey Ranch Golf Club gave us the wedding we dreamed of and one that our friends and family have not stopped raving about!Sent on 03/01/2017

There really aren't words to describe how incredible the Gainey crew was to us for our wedding. I never thought I would be able to plan a wedding myself but having the package they offer helped tremendously! From our tour, Mock wedding, tastings, check ins, and of course the day of--- all exceeded our expectations. Lauren, the coordinator, will make any couple feel at ease because she is so down to earth and knows what she's doing. She was a huge factor with us booking here! I would highly recommend Gainey to anyone looking for a picture perfect day. Thanks again, Lauren!!!Sent on 12/13/2016

I don't think our wedding could have been more perfect and it's all thanks to Lauren and the awesome people at Gainey Ranch! Not only are they great because they have great wedding packages and a beautiful location, but because they work with some of the best vendors around! All our guests have told us how beautiful our wedding was, how delicious the food was and that they had so much fun! I couldn't have done it without Lauren's help. My husband and I had never been in a wedding before our own and Lauren answered all our questions so well wenever felt the need to hire a wedding coordinator. Pricing was VERY reasonable in all other aspects as well. Would love to do my wedding day all over again at Gainey... but I'll settle for an invite to yours ;)Sent on 12/03/2016

Lauren Ogle is simply amazing! She was a super hero helping us plan our dream wedding. She answered every question and helped us with every concern. She made us feel like we were the only client she was working with even though I know that wasn't the case. Her genuine passion, timely response, and professionalism made us so comfortable and as least stressed as possible. We highly reccomend this as a venue!Sent on 11/29/2016

The setting was beautiful, on the golf course with the McDowell mountains behind. The time of day Lauren suggested made for beautiful photos. Lauren made all the planning so easy, and was open to some personal touches such as my husband driving the bride and bridesmaids to the site in his antique car.Sent on 11/29/2016
The reception was elegant and festive and our guests raved about the quality of the food and the delicious and beautiful wedding cake.
We looked at a number of venues and the prices were far more reasonable than anything else we explored.

Noelle · Married on 10/01/2016
We had our wedding here on October 1, 2016 and had the best experience ever. We worked with Lauren Ogle, the Events/Wedding Coordinator and she was FANTASTIC - extremely detail oriented and very kind and professional. When I saw the ballroom set up on my wedding day I had tears in my eyes because it was everything I had imagined plus more thanks to Lauren and the Gainey staff. The chef and staff for the food/serving was amazing, too. The guests ranted and raved about the quality of food (both apps & entrees) saying it was some of the best food they've had at a wedding. The grounds are kept up consistently and looked very pretty on our wedding day. I would highly recommend having your wedding here. My husband and I are so glad we did!Sent on 10/12/2016
Gainey Ranch Golf Club's reply:Noelle, you are just the sweetest! You, David and your entire family and friends are the best of the best and made the entire planning process so fun and easy.

Thank you so much for your fabulous review and we hope to see you and David again soon!
Steve · event on: 04/15/2016
We wanted to have a rehearsal dinner for all of our out of town guests, totaling over 100. We wanted to have a place with a relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful setting. Since we were on the East Coast, and our son's wedding was going to be a couple thousand miles away, we needed to do everything long distance. Working with Lauren Ogle and her staff could not have been easier. She responded promptly to all our questions, helped us come up with a great menu and format (we did stations), and topped it off by suggesting S'Mores for dessert! All the details were taken care of and the evening itself was very special thanks to the delicious food, the beautiful venue (people thought it was a movie set) and the extremely helpful and courteous staff.Sent on 05/02/2016

We absolutely LOVED Gainey Ranch Golf Course for our wedding venue. As soon as we toured the grounds, we knew it was the spot for us and our searched ended right then and there. The waterfall backdrop at the ceremony cite was the biggest selling point. Our photos are absolutely gorgeous with the waterfall background, green grass and white sand. The cite seemed small, but can hold way more guests than I could have imagined. Our coordinator, Lauren, was fabulous. She was only 4 days into her new job and already knew everything about the location. She is bright, bubbly and was so easy to work with. She made sure that everything was perfect for us. The food was wonderful and the biggest problem was trying to choose from all the many awesome selections! For the location the price was very reasonable and they worked within our budget. We would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone for their wedding day, you won't regret it!!!Sent on 05/05/2016
