I can’t say enough good things about Miranda and her staff at River Ridge. She was involved in every step of the planning process and answered all of our questions.

50th Birthday Celebration
I had a wonderful experience planning a 59th Celebration for my husband. Miranda and her team were awesome. Very helpful, they made sure everything was ready. They even pitched in when I had some last minute issues. Excellent customer support. I would definitely use them again, the price is very reasonable including the bar and the view is beautiful.Sent on 10/07/2019
River Ridge Golf Club's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Haydee! It was a pleasure working with you and your family. Please come back anytime :)

Miranda was the reason we chose River Ridge
We visited at least a dozen venues and no one compared to River Ridge - specifically Miranda, the onsite coordinator. She is included in the venue price and is a fantastic help. She is so supportive and flexible and will happily make any request possible.Sent on 06/18/2019
The ability for us to bring in our own vendors also made River Ridge our dream venue. We got to do our wedding our way!
River Ridge Golf Club's reply:Dear Matt, thank you so much for your lovely sentiments! This absolutely makes my day. You and Daniela are the perfect couple and we loved working with you and hosting your wonderful event. Come back and visit us anytime!!

Amazing Wedding Venue
I cant say enough about Miranda and the staff at River Ridge Golf Club. Miranda was amazing from start to finish. She was always available for the many questions that I had. She made the day go so smoothly. I would definitely recommend them for any event that you may have.Sent on 05/28/2019
River Ridge Golf Club's reply:Thank you for your kind words! Mr. and Mrs. Robinson's wedding was one of our favorites at River Ridge--all the family and friends were so kind and everyone was dancing into the night!

Wonderful rehearsal dinner!
We had our rehearsal dinner at River Ridge and it was perfect! The space fit our group so well and it was a wonderful setting. Absolutely beautiful and Miranda was phenomenal throughout the process! We had their barbecue buffet for dinner and it was delicious and a great value!Sent on 05/29/2019
River Ridge Golf Club's reply:Thank you for your kind words! We really enjoyed working with you and hope you had the best rehearsal and wedding :)

Miranda met with my daughter and me for an hour and a half to discuss River Ridge Venue. She was extremely well organized and she personally knew every vendor and could describe specifics about each one. We had a lot of questions and she took time to answer each one thoroughly. We left feeling like every detail of the reception would be safe in her hands!Sent on 08/27/2017

River Ridge was the perfect wedding venue!
River Ridge was the PERFECT venue for us having a fall wedding. Everything was incredibly beautiful and we heard so many times how incredible everything came together from our guests. Miranda is just awesome - she's very, very good at her job and making you comfortable with everything. Having the ability to have an outdoor wedding, the cocktail hour, and the reception all right there together was exactly what we wanted and made life on our guests so easy!Sent on 11/13/2018
We love River Ridge and how wonderful Miranda was to work with. I would recommend them 10 out of 10 times to anyone looking to use them for your wedding or another event! You won't regret it!
PS - When you compare what you get at River Ridge for the price of other venues in downtown Raleigh or Durham it's an absolute no brainer. Why pay $10k for a venue alone when you can have a scenic venue that provides so much more!? Easy decision!

We got married at River Ridge on 9/29/18 and choosing River Ridge was honestly the easiest part of our planning process! Miranda was a fantastic coordinator and so patient as I had MULTIPLE rounds of questions and even changed my mind on certain details in the last few weeks. River Ridge is beautiful on its own but the space is also neutral which allows you to decorate it with your own style- we went with lots of christmas lights on the covered patio and some simple tulle on the railing overlooking the sunset which was amazing for pictures.Sent on 10/12/2018
Our ceremony was outside on the lawn, our cocktail hour was inside and then our reception was held under the covered patio. It was amazing to have three different locations for the events to so we didn't have to break down/set up multiple times and the locations were so close that the flow of the wedding from the ceremony onto the cocktail hour to the reception was seamless and very convenient for guests! There was also plenty of parking, tables/chairs are included in the rental fee, along with Miranda's services for the day of, making River Ridge a great financial deal.
I could not recommend River Ridge more- our day was even better than we could have imagined!

River Ridge Golf Club's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words! Your wedding was an absolute delight for all the vendors involved. Best wishes to you both!

I can’t say enough great things about River Ridge and Miranda! I had my reception at River Ridge in August and it couldn’t have been more perfect! The wedding coordinator, Miranda, was so helpful and responsive. She spent over an hour with us at our first meeting showing us the venue and answering all of our questions. She gave us a packet of preffered vendors (you don’t have to choose from the list), which was extremely helpful! All of the vendors we used ended up being from her suggestion list and they were all awesome! Miranda was always quick to respond to any emails and take care of any concerns that we had. She coordinated with our vendors to help things run smoothly the day of. I can’t say enough great things about Miranda and River Ridge and I highly recommend them!! Sunset photos are definitely an added plus at this beautiful venue! You definitely won’t be disppaointed if you book with Miranda and her team at River Ridge for you event!Sent on 09/05/2018
River Ridge Golf Club's reply:Thank you so much Mrs. Davis! It was such a pleasure working with your mom-daughter-aunt team to pull off an absolutely stunning event. Best wishes!!

We would definitely use this venue again! The people were so polite and accommodating. We were able to move things around and decorate as we wanted to make the best use of the room. We had a video show going and even with that the noise level was not an issue for some of the older people. Having the tables for the caterers at the back made the room flow very smoothly.Sent on 04/26/2018

My husband and I got married at River Ridge on March 10th, 2018 and everything about it was amazing. Our wedding was a fusion between “Bollywood meets Bluegrass” and the venue housed everything we needed to pull off this mix of cultures. Miranda is AMAZING. She was incredibly prompt and helpful with all communication- which was great considering we had a relatively short engagement and thus short planning period (3 months). Miranda made this stressful planning time so much better by recommending amazing vendors, offering her professional opinion, and was therapeutic to talk with about wedding and general life stressors. One of the reasons we picked River Ridge was because it has several “weather” options with the clubhouse, pavilion, and lawn. Our day ended up being colder than we hoped it would be, so we moved the reception inside the clubhouse. I was initially worried about this change but it ended up being the perfect cozy space for dinner and dinner for about 65 people. Rehearsal dinner time is included in the rental fee, but we decided not to have one. Miranda did an excellent job of coordinating my family and friends who were part of the wedding party- some of whom had never seen an American wedding ceremony. Miranda made sure all of the vendors were set, my décor was placed, and left me to relax and get ready. If tou are not a golfer do not be afraid to use this venue! The varied grounds were perfect for pictures and it felt very unique. Everything about our day at River Ridge was wonderful and I recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding or event!Sent on 03/13/2018

My daughter and her husband were married at River Ridge on 3/10/18. The day was everything I hoped it would be and more. Everything was perfect. Miranda did a wonderful job in always responding to us in a very timely manner. We had chosen not to have a rehearsal the night before, even though it was included, and Miranda gave us the organization and direction to pull off the perfect ceremony without anyone knowing that we did not practice. She also did a great job of recommending and coordinating the vendors so that everything worked seamlessly. I was amazed by how everyone worked together the day of the wedding. It was stress free for all of us. I loved the clubhouse which has a lot of character and looks great in the pictures. We had an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception for 65 people in the upstairs room with plenty of room for dinner and dancing in a warm and cozy space. I could not be happier as the mother of the bride with our experience at River Ridge.Sent on 04/02/2018

My company held our annual holiday party at River Ridge Golf Club and I cannot say enough good things. To start, the space is beautiful - spacious without being too big. We had about 80 people confirmed and received closer to 100, and fit very well. River Ridge allowed us to decorate however we wanted, and even let us set up that morning so that I had time to clean up any issues, despite the fact our party wasn't until evening. They also supplied the bartender who was a pro at handling the crowd and keeping everyone happy. We were allowed to bring our own caterer and DJ, which was important to me, but we used the club's tables and chairs, which kept things simple. The best part, however, was Miranda, the event coordinator. From my initial contact to post-event, she was kind, professional, and friendly, as well as patient with my endless questions. She helped me plan the layout (turns out, I have a REALLY hard time picturing table sizes), met with me multiple times in advance, and even pitched in on cleanup (as did the bartender, who lugged our heavy stuff, something I am still grateful for). All emails were answered quickly, and during the party, she checked in with me regularly and subtly to be sure everything was going smoothly. The party ended up going off without a hitch, and I already plan to book it again next year. Everyone should book River Ridge (unless of course, you're aiming for a time I'm looking at - dibs!).Sent on 12/29/2017

Miranda went above and beyond to accommodate my family, friends, wedding party, and vendors. Miranda made every attempt to stay in touch and keep me on track leading up to my big day, without pressuring me or making me feel uncomfortable with timelines. Miranda is a great asset to River Ridge and does an exceptional job with coordinating special events. You can tell Miranda truly loves her job and her place of employment (the venue itself). Miranda helps to make events such as weddings unique and special for each customer. From booking, to tours, to communication, to coordinating with vendors, to making sure things run as planned on the event day - she did it all. Miranda deserves to be rewarded for her outstanding effort put into my event, as I know this effort only carries over into all her duties at River Ridge. :)Sent on 10/25/2017

My experience was stellar!! I planned my graduation/birthday party at this venue and Miranda was beyond amazing! She was responsive to texts, emails and phone calls! The view was breathtaking, the service impeccable and could not beat the price!! I have already had 3 friends reach out to get Miranda's contact information for their weddings and parties. I will definitely use this venue again!!'Sent on 07/26/2017

River Ridge Golf Club was the perfect place for our wedding and reception! The venue was absolutely beautiful and everything was just wonderful! Working with Miranda Day (Events Coordinator) and her staff was a dream come true! She was so helpful and responsive and willing to work with you on anything! She was there for every step of the process if you had any questions or just needed a second opinion on something. She was a complete joy to work with and the wedding day could not have been more perfect thanks to her and her staff!Sent on 06/10/2017

River Ridge was a BEAUTIFUL setting for our venue - both wedding and reception. We both love going over all of the gorgeous pictures from such an incredible setting. Miranda was wonderful to work with - so accommodating and helpful with so many suggestions. The wedding and reception went off without a hitch due to the extreme professionalism and customer service and we could not have asked for anything more!! The sun setting behind the driving range during our reception was TO DIE FOR! We received so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful the wedding and reception were!Sent on 12/22/2016
Kimberly · Married on 10/29/2016
Miranda was so incredibly helpful with planning and executing our wedding and reception! She gave me lots of good ideas and vendor suggestions and was so incredibly nice to work with. She seemed about as excited for my wedding as I was! And the venue was incredible. I appreciate that they offer a back up plan of inside the clubhouse should it rain. Would only work for a little bit smaller weddings, which is what we had (70 ppl). Such a relief not to worry about that. But we lucked out and had incredible weather and had our wedding and reception outdoors and everyone is still talking about how beautiful it was. Nothing like dancing on the pavillion while the sun is setting in the background. And the INCREDIBLE bridal shots that were taken on the golf course - those will last forever! Highly, highly recommend! River Ridge could not have been more accommodating and the cost is very reasonable!Sent on 01/06/2017
