Beautiful Golf Course Views with The Perfect Wedding Planner
The venue at the St. Johns Golf & Country Club was the perfect keepsake image, especially because ours was only the 4th wedding in the newly renovated venue appointed with reclaimed wood beams and stunning barn door. Amanda Dunn, the Director of Sales, had us hooked with the breathtaking views of the golf course as our backdrop for the ceremony and the painted picture of what our guests would see for the reception through the large glass windows. The idea of being able to take golf carts around the course with our photographer for the perfect photo spots sealed the deal. Jessica Hurckes, the Event Manager, made the wedding planning process seamless with coordinating food and partnering with our vendors. The day flowed by perfectly--from her organization of the setup through her precise following of the timeline to the last final hurrah with our drive away in our "Just Married" decorated golf cart. Everything was taken care of from start to finish, including placement of photos and decorations that we had on each table and throughout the venue to the pickup after the ceremony was completed. Amanda, Jessica, and their team made for a worry-free day for the entire wedding party so that the focus was on the joining in marriage of the bride and groom. The food was delicious and well presented, and the service that we received from the staff before, during, and after the event was top notch. We received so many compliments on not just the beauty of the venue but the overall wedding guest experience. Our wedding day was perfect and we cannot thank Jessica enough for making it this way!Sent on 03/08/2021

A Stunning Venue
This venue is absolutely beautiful. It just recently finished renovations and it looks even better than it did before. I loved everything about it! The lights, the center pieces, the colors, the slight rustic look to it. Its amazing! I would've recommended the venue before renovations, but I would do so even more now. Jessica, the day of coordinator, was wonderful to work with. The food was also delicious! Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be.Sent on 03/05/2021

My fiancé & I selected the St. Johns Golf & Country Club based on their affordability & the design plans for their new wedding ceremony & reception spaces. When COVID-19 forced us to postpone our wedding, they were incredibly accommodating; they allowed us to move our date from April to September 2020 with no hassle or penalty. The Director of Sales, Amanda Dunn, has been simply amazing to work with! My fiancé & I still wanted to get married in the spring, so she was kind enough to offer us the opportunity to have a super-intimate ceremony onsite (that complied with the CDC’s, the WHO’s & the Governor’s guidelines, of course). Her communication is top-notch; she responded by email and/or text very quickly & was compassionate & understanding about every decision we made. We are so glad we chose them as our venue & we're thrilled we'll be able to work with them again in September for the BIG celebration!Sent on 03/27/2020

SJGCC was absolutely wonderful
I have nothing but positive things to say about St. John's Golf & Country Club! From the moment I signed our contact to even after the wedding, Amanda Dunn was extremely helpful. She was so wonderful to work with, she was so attentive, and she really made our experience wonderful. The food was amazing, the venue itself was gorgeous. We also hosted our rehearsal dinner here! Throughout the day & all through the reception, Amanda and her team were always checking in with us to see what we needed. The day was absolutely perfect and SJGCC was a huge part of that. THANK YOU!Sent on 10/21/2019

Amazing venue and friendly staff
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Tammie, Jessica and the rest of the staff at St. John’s Golf & Country. They were great at working with all the details leading up to our wedding, and the day of our wedding were completely amazing and ensure that everything was on time and that no detail was missed. I absolutely recommend the beautiful venue and great staff. They will definitely help make your special day, extra special.Sent on 11/14/2018

My husband and I probably looked at 15 different venues before deciding on St. Johns Golf & Country Club. This place was OUTSTANDING! The staff are thoughtful and professional. Everyone was responsive to any text or email, with any concern. The venue included a day-of coordinator, Tammie, who was the absolute best person to work with. She anticipated our every need and came to the rescue with a last minute floral disaster. The guests couldn't stop raving about the food, the staff kept the drinks flowing, and our guests were very well taken care of. If I had to plan our wedding again, I'd book St. Johns Golf & Country Club every time! They went so above and beyond our expectations and made our wedding magical.Sent on 04/29/2018

My wedding was absolutely amazing!! I couldn't have chosen a better venue or team to work with. I still have guest talking about how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. It was truly a day to remember.Sent on 06/23/2017
Our day of coordinator Tammie did a great job at helping me stay calm the week leading up to the wedding. She even sent me a text the night before the wedding to ensure that I was relaxing and not worrying about anything. I greatly appreciated that because it gave me reassurance that I was in good hands. I was also very pleased with the table layout she suggested. The set up made the main room and back parlor area feel as one unit (with 150 guests). She was always very accessible and a pleasure to work with.
Our DIY decorations were all placed exactly the way I explained and everything feel right into place. Tammie kept the program running and there was nothing that I had to worry about that day, everything was taken care of. The bridal suite was the perfect spot for my bridesmaids and I to get ready (including the MUA applying our makeup in that space). We were able to listen to music, eat and drink in a comfortable atmosphere as we prepared for the wedding.
I absolutely positively LOVE Jessica (Bridal attendant), I feel like she was by my side the entire day making sure I was okay. From making sure my husband and I ate to checking to see if I needed to change into my flip flops. She was on top of everything. My bridesmaids ran into trouble trying to bustle my dress after formal pictures and Jessica came in and saved the day. I can't speak enough on how much my husband and I appreciate her passion for what she does.
If you are looking for a gorgeous venue that will make your DIY dreams come true and handle all the minor details and flow of the day, you definitely want to book at this venue.

I am so happy we decided on this venue for our wedding. Tammie and Jessica were amazing! They went above and beyond our expectations! The venue itself is beautiful inside and out. We were able to have our ceremony on the lawn, and even had a beautiful 2nd option in case of rain. The reception area was decorated exactly how I envisioned. My family and friends are still complimenting on the staff and how amazing the wedding was. Thank you so much ladies you made our day so memorable!Sent on 05/17/2017

Wonderful venue and service for my wedding!
Even though I’m a meeting and event planner, this time I was actually the bride! I had high expectations for my wedding and Tammie at St John’s Golf and Country Club didn’t disappoint. I would highly recommend them for any special event.Sent on 11/14/2018

They are awesome. We had our reception here and packed the place with 150 guests, and they made it amazing. Staff worked hard all day to help make the place look perfect. We had the dance floor outside (in december) and it was perfect. Food was incredible. We had london broil and crab-stuffed tilapia. Bartenders were great.Sent on 12/27/2016

I was so impressed with this venue. After looking around at different places and we came to this venue we booked right away. We were even more surprise that the price was half of what we were seeing. Amanda and Brittany were so great with everything. Always quick to respond to anything I needed it had a question about. They were super flexible about working with the menu and day of planning. This venue does a lot of different events and I can see why. Day of wedding we had staff that was there for us all the time to all of the wedding party. Natalie was so sweet remembered what we wanted to drink and what we liked to munch on. The day went by perfectly. I honestly hope that anyone reading this picks this venue you won't be disappointed :)Sent on 04/25/2016

My wedding was just two weeks ago and everything was perfect! Brittany and Amanda are amazing to work with. Both respond very quickly and are extremely helpful. The day of my wedding I did not have to worry about anything because I knew I was in good hands. The venue provides food and beverage, has a plan B if it rains, heaters for outside if it's cold. The land is gorgeous and provides great scenery for pictures. I would highly recommend booking this venue for your wedding, you won't be disappointed!Sent on 03/12/2016

My son and his new wife recently had their wedding rehearsal and dinner as well as their wedding ceremony and reception at this beautiful venue. I can use one word to describe the whole experience from planning through completion - WOW!! The food, service, ambiance and every little detail were done to perfection thanks to the professionalism of both Amanda Dunn and Brittany Grunst. They are a dynamic duo who make sure that your wedding wishes come true!!Sent on 03/04/2016

If I could give more than 5 stars to SJGCC, I would. This was the first vendor I checked out and I was so impressed by Amanda (wedding coordinator), the venue itself, the menu, the flexibility of services that we booked a couple days later. I just knew as soon as we left that Amanda was the kind of coordinator that would not allow anything to be less than perfect, and I was right! I literally showed up and things were taken care of, I had zero stress.Sent on 03/10/2016
We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at SJGCC and the entire staff made all of the events flawless. I had Brittany as my day of coordinator and she is just as professional and efficient as Amanda. Shannon was my bridal attendant (a luxury I did not realize I was going to have) and she basically made sure I was where I needed to be and I had everything I needed (think wine post ceremony).
We provided own cake, DJ, decorations, and photographer and they do the rest. I mean it. We didn't set up decorations or break down/clean up afterwards. All chairs, linens, food, alcohol were taken care of. They have everything down to a science; there will be no hiccups in schedules, no guests wandering around wondering where they are supposed to go, where their table is or what is supposed to happen (personal pet peeve of mine when I go to other weddings; not having an even coordinator and guests just mill around helpless).
Again: if you want your wedding to be perfect, book this venue. Book it now.

Where to even start! I had to many people help me through beginning to end! Amanda always responds quickly through email no matter how silly the question is, she put up with us changing our menu...i think 3 times. she's really sweet and helpful! And brittany was very helpful also especially with the food and the day, she was awesome! Not only do they have brittany the day of the wedding they have a couple extra girls, and this one girl in particular i forget her name...natalie? she was the best she picked up my train when my bridesmaids didn't, she got us all snacks and water,she even when and got my lipgloss and returned something to my mother the list goes on she was just so unbelievable! the only negative thing i do have to say which isn't their fault i just have sweet blood! i got bit by bug at the dinner rehearsal and the bridal party got bit like crazy when we were taking photos but other then that awesome beyond words! And the food was amazing!!!Sent on 11/23/2015

Our wedding day was beyond perfect. Amanda and Brittany answered all of our questions leading up to our wedding, made us feel completely at ease, set up the most beautiful reception, and catered to us all night long! I know most people probably say this about their venue, but we truly feel it was the most perfect place when you're not trying to break the bank!! It was incredible, and we would do it all over again in a heart beat! Thank you so much Amanda and Brittany!Sent on 10/15/2015

I know a lot of brides would like to get married on the beach or in front of the water. But, if you have a budget to stick to this is the place for you. There are many different options for your actual ceremony site and the reception is held in the same place so you and your guests do not have to travel. Amanda, Britney, Natalie and all of the employees were very accommodating and so sweet. They really have it together from the first time you meet with them to the end of your wedding and reception. There is no need to have a wedding planner unless you do not wish to take care of all of your on decorations and flowers. I personally wanted to be in charge of making all of my decisions on decorations and flowers so, the day off I took everything I had up there and spoke to the ladies to let them know where I wanted everything and they did an absolutely perfect job in placing everything where we had discussed. Brittney took charge and got everything down to a time frame from walking down the isle to the bouquet toss. Natalie was the sweetest most attentive assistant the bride could have she took care of all of my needs from the time I got there to get dressed to serving us ( the bride and groom ) dinner. I throughly enjoyed our wedding venue.Sent on 06/09/2015
