Our experiences planning my daughter's wedding at Turf Valley exceeded our expectations! From start to finish, the staff at Turf Valley were excellent. We worked primarily with Jaime Petit to plan everything. The bride lives nearby, but I (mother of the bride) did most of the planning - and we live out of state. It did not matter - Jaime was responsive, flexible, and very attentive to our needs. Jaime helped us in food planning, scheduling details, and arranging for all special requests. She also made sure we were well taken care of the day of the wedding by Paul, our Maitre D. Paul was extremely helpful and attentive to our needs - before, during and after the ceremony. The servers were terrific and unobtrusive. The food was delicious and nicely presented. Our guests were especially raving about the appetizers - I wish I had more of them!Sent on 10/05/2018
In addition to the wedding day, we had many out of town friends and relatives staying at the hotel for the weekend. The reservation and front desk staff were helpful and welcoming. In addition, the catering staff were super to work with for a small gathering the night before the wedding and a buffet brunch the morning after.
We can't thank the staff at Turf Valley enough and would recommend the resort to anyone looking for a well organized and memorable celebration in the area!!

We held our wedding reception at Turf Valley resort and Spa. The food was delicious and everything went like clockwork. Our maitre de, Latisha, was attentive and the staff was friendly and helpful. We work with Jenny through out the planning process. She was knowledgeable and always responded quickly to our emails. As part of our package, we got out cake from Debi's cake studio, and it was delicious! Turf Valley also gave us a suite on our wedding night and one on our first anniversary.Sent on 08/02/2018

We spent an eternity looking for the right venue in the Baltimore area. After meeting Jamie Petit, we knew we had the right place. The venue is gorgeous inside and out, and while it's close to Ellicott City if you need anything, it feels peaceful and far removed. Jamie was beyond helpful, and always easy to reach. She kept things moving along, and reminded us for all the planning we had to do! Leading up to the big day, Jamie always asked if there was anything she could do for us. Paul was our maitre-d, and he was phenomenal the day of the wedding. We had planned to get married outside, but ended up getting rained out at the last minute. The crew at Turf Valley, especially Paul, made sure to help our guests move inside and had a backup room prepared for us without being asked. While taking pictures in the drizzle, Paul even brought us umbrellas (which made for some wonderful pictures!). Weddings are always stressful, but Turf Valley made everything perfect. Would recommend TVR to everyone!Sent on 06/09/2018

My husband and I got married at Turf Valley Resort on 5/12/18, and we are so happy we chose this venue! We toured several venues, and Turf Valley stood out from the start. We worked with Jenny B, and her customer service skills and knowledge were what made us so comfortable. Turf Valley is a beautiful setting, but what makes it different is that the staff genuinely care about making sure you have a perfect weddinh day.Sent on 06/30/2018
We booked the outdoor garden ceremony space, as well as the Wedgewood Ballroom for our reception. Jenny made all parts of our contract easy to understand, and she answered any questions we had super quickly.
Turf Valley makes it easy for your guests to book hotel rooms at a discounted rate, and we were also given a wedding night stay at the hotel as a complimentary part of our package. Also, we were able to drop off our wedding items before the big day, and the staff set everything up perfectly. Hailey, one of the catering sales assistants, was great with helpinh us bring everything in to store before the wedding.
Our wedding day was perfect, even with the threat of rain. Jenny gave us a great alternative indoor ceremony location, and even though we ended up not needing it, it was a huge relief to know that was an option.
Our day of coordinator was Chris Goodwin, and he was extremely helpful. We met him at our rehearsal, and he was great at organizing everyone and helping us figure out logistics. The day of the wedding, he made sure everything ran smoothly, and my husband and I didn’t have to worry about anything.
On our wedding night, we came back to our room and found champagne, some treats, and a lovely note congratulating us on our marriage. It truly was a perfect day, and Turf Valley was a huge part of that.
Thank you so much to Hailey, Jenny, Chris, and everyone at Turf Valley Resort!
Christie · Married on 05/10/2018
Absolutely amazing and painless experience! We had our ceremony out in the gardens which was beautiful and shaded. Everything ran seemless and everyone was extremely nice and helpful. I have zero complaints! The hospitality suite is huge and can accommodate a lot of people getting ready. Our reception was in the grand ballroom and the food was delicious! The pool is newly renovated and the spa is great! Highly recommend using them for your BIG day!Sent on 08/21/2018

Turf Valley was a dream come true. Jaime went ABOVE and BEYOND to make sure everything went so smoothly leading up to the wedding - she responded immediately to all of my emails, and answered all of my questions right away. She made me feel at ease throughout the entire process, and was super helpful with suggestions I didn't even ask for to make the day even better! Our day of contacts/Maitre ds were Ashley, with the help of Chris - and they were freaking awesome!! They were so attentive and kind, and made sure everything was going smoothly. They were so on top of everything! Thank you Turf Valley!Sent on 12/07/2017

We had a great experience working with Jaime at Turf Valley. She was super responsive and helpful when we were trying to navigate the wedding planning experience. Our wedding had about 135 people and we had no problem fitting into the Waterford Ballroom. There ended up being 2 or 3 other wedding receptions at Turf Valley that day, but we were completely separate from everyone else in the Waterford (since it is on the other side of the resort by itself) and didn't even realize there were other weddings until post-reception. If you are going to have a wedding reception at Turf Valley, would definitely recommend being in the Waterford due to the privacy. The Turf Valley bars were an awesome addition for our wedding, we had guests partying until the very end of the night. Everyone was highly impressed with the venue and I would recommend having your wedding at Turf Valley to anyone interested in having a reception/hotel in the same location!Sent on 05/01/2019

My fiance and I knew Turf Valley was the right place to have our wedding when we met Jaime, our Catering Account Executive. Jaime went above and beyond at our first meeting and instantly made us feel comfortable. Jaime was a dream come true throughout the wedding planning process. She answered our many questions and was quick to respond to dozens of emails. We can't say enough about how amazing she was. She was accommodating when our schedule meant we could only meet early or late, and she made sure every small detail was planned out and accounted for during our final meeting. She made great recommendations and we happily took them! When the big day came and we saw all the different aspects we'd planned for come together in exactly the way we'd envisioned it, we knew it was because of Jaime. On the day of the wedding, the staff at Turf Valley was wonderful and the service was excellent; Paul, our Maitre D, kept things moving and on track, and ensured we had everything we needed throughout the evening. A big thank you to Jaime, Paul, and the staff at Turf Valley for making our wedding day wonderful!!Sent on 11/16/2017
Amber · Married on 10/08/2017
Jaime was great. My initial meeting with her made me feel less overwhelmed with the planning and excited about the experience. I love the Cameo room because it allowed for versatility. Guest could sit by the outdoor firepits to talk while remaining in close proximity to the reception hall. While my dreams of an outdoor wedding were interrupted by the rainy weather, our indoor wedding was beautiful as well.Sent on 11/16/2017
The staff was organized, professional, and flexible. I loved that Turf Valley had wedding packages which took the stress out of finding multiple vendors. Their wedding tasting event was great as it allowed us the opportunity to get a sneak-peep of Turf Valley's catering.
The honeymoon suite was spacious and the view was beautiful! Our friends decorated our honeymoon suite. Turf Valley provided us with a very thoughtful snack and bottle of champagne. I am looking forward to our complementary stay on our anniversary next year!

This is the best place to get married at! The staff go above and beyond to ensure your wedding there is perfect and are always happy to help answer any question. Jaime was a such a thoughtful, kind and supportive wedding coordinator throughout our entire 18 months of planning. She never complained if I emailed her 20 times a day and always promptly responded back. She remembered every detail (even those I forgot) and was very organized! The day of the wedding our MatreD Chris was so helpful and went above and beyond to ensure everything went well so we didn't have to worry about a thing! The staff put everything out perfectly so we didn't have to set up anything which was a welcome assistance so we could enjoy our day and focus on ourselves, friends and family. Our guests loved the food, helpful staff and the ability to stay over at the great hotel rooms and enjoy the after party at the hotel. We are so happy we chose to have our wedding here! Absolutely the best!!!Sent on 05/24/2017

Jenny was our coordinator for our wedding. She was so helpful with every question about anything and everything that we asked. Jenny and the Turf Valley team help set everything up just the way that we wanted it to, and we had a lot of little details that went into the reception space. We had our wedding outside in the garden and our reception was in the Waterford room. Everyone that we worked with at Turf were wonderful, Jenny and Courtney in the sales and catering office, the front desk staff when we checked in, our maitre'd Chris for our day of to the awesome bartenders Amanda and Kevin that we had Friday and Saturday nights. Turf Valley was the best place for our wedding.Sent on 10/16/2016

We were so happy with our experience at Turf Valley. We loved working with Jaime and were happy with how accommodating Turf Valley was for the several events we held there all weekend. Jaime had an incredible amount of patience with all of the questions and my mom and I bombarded her with. It was nice that our guests could enjoy a variety of activities (golf, pool) before the wedding, that everyone could stay at the venue, and that we could hold all of our events at one location but in different rooms to give a different feel. Paul was our maitre d for our event on Friday evening and all day Saturday and he was phenomenal. Everything ran smoothly and everyone had a great time. We definitely recommend working with Turf Valley for your wedding, especially with Jaime and Paul!Sent on 08/28/2016

Let me start out by saying in terms of food, I was not the easiest bride to work with. I have life-threatening allergies to dairy so finding the right venue was super tricky. Jamie worked tirelessly to make sure everything (down to the last plate) was safe for me on our big day. Everything from the tasting to the big day went off without a hitch. No incidents what so ever. And on top of that Jamie is such a sweetheart. Also our on site coordinator Latisha was great. We were never without a drink in hand while circulating through our guests, made sure we had everything we needed, as well as sent up my plate of food up to the room because I wasn't feeling particularly hungry during the event. I highly recommend their crab cakes and filet. They were to die for! As well as their petit lamb chops and sausage and peppers for apps! On top of that they are one of the most reasonably priced venues around.Sent on 06/22/2016
We had the Waterford Room, which is gorgeous and secluded from the rest of the ballrooms in the hotel, with it's own bar and balcony. They set up our decorations perfectly and the room was gorgeous day of. They even worked with us to get our imported dance floor in. Their dance floor is 20x20 but my husband and I are ballroom dancers as well as our friends so we wanted something a little bigger so we could all dance around the floor.
I can't thank Jamie and her staff enough for helping us throw our reception at Turf Valley and I highly recommend her and Turf Valley if you plan on getting married in the state of Maryland.
Megan · Married on 10/24/2015
During the months leading up to our wedding, Jaime was incredibly helpful in ensuring all of the planning and arrangements were exactly as we wanted. She offered expert suggestions when we were unsure of how to proceed or deal with a particular element of the wedding. Working with her was a breeze and really removed a lot of the potential stress from the event.Sent on 01/05/2016
Paul was our maitre'd during the wedding and our day of contact. We cannot thank Paul enough for all of the help he made in ensuring that the day went smoothly. He really went above and beyond when we learned that the DJ that we had booked did not show about 90 minutes before the reception was supposed to start. Paul quickly contacted a different DJ who he had worked with previously and, not only was that person able to come on very short notice, but he was excellent. Paul also worked closely with the DJ to ensure that the event went smoothly and all of our wishes were followed.
Thanks to Jaime and Paul, our wedding day was amazing and we absolutely would recommend both of them and Turf Valley to anyone that is looking to host an event.
Kimberly · Married on 09/19/2015
My husband and I were extremely impressed and happy with using Turf Valley as our wedding reception venue and caterer. Turf Valley was a beautiful venue, and we absolutely loved working with our two coordinators, Carol Sirchio (pre-planning) and Chris Goodwin (onsite coordinator). Both staff worked extremely hard in planning, and coordinated our wedding smoothly and with genuine care and kindness. We are truly blessed that they were able to share our special day with us and all of our family / friends! All of us (family and friends) were highly impressed with the amount of genuine thought and effort they both put forth in planning and coordinating our wedding, as well as their kind and fun personalities. Carol was extremely communicative and flexible around our schedules during the pre-wedding planning stages and coordinated our wedding menu tasting, and Chris was extremely efficient and thoughtful in every effort made toward making our wedding day special and run smoothly. On the day of, Chris made sure all of our food was taken out efficiently and accurately, including accounting for all food allergies we had from our guests. In addition, he made sure guests were in good hands from start to finish. Chris also was extremely attentive to the bridal party, and in making sure we were able to get food during all the photography. We loved our bridal suite set up, it was clean, and fully stocked with fresh hors d'oeuvres and drinks that everyone thought was delicious! We will definitely recommend Turf Valley and our two coordinators to anyone in search of a wedding reception venue. Chris and Carol both went above and beyond their responsibilities, making my husband and I's special day fun and memorable for us and all of our guests! Thank you Chris and Carol, for truly making our special day flawless; we love you! XOSent on 10/24/2015

About a year ago my fiancé (now husband!!) and I set out on our search for the perfect wedding venue. Turf Valley was the second venue we visited and the moment we saw it, we knew our search was over! From the gorgeous outdoor ceremony site... to the wonderful convenience of the attached resort... to the abundant list of amenities... to our fabulous sales manager Carol… and to the outstanding location with tons of nearby restaurants and shops - it was clear that Turf Valley simply had it all. Throughout our planning process everyone was so accommodating and easy to work with which really made our wedding planning experience enjoyable. When this weekend finally came everything went flawlessly. From arrival Friday to departure Monday I don’t think there is one thing that could have gone better. The front desk staff was exceptional and so pleasant – even though we must have asked for a hundred different favors a thousand different times. The banquet staff was extremely efficient and gracious. The spa and their staff – especially Stacy and Brittany – were phenomenal. The gentlemen over at the golf course – especially Chuck – were fantastic in all that they did to help my husband plan a fun, pre-wedding golf outing. Truly, I cannot say enough great things about Turf Valley. I would HIGHLY recommend Turf Valley to anyone and everyone! Thank you again for everything you all did to make one of the most special weekends of our lives so perfect and memorable for all the right reasons!Sent on 09/09/2015

We had an amazing time at Turf Valley. From when we started planning, Jenny was always responsive and helpful as we navigated the initial process. We picked Turf Valley because we wanted a one-stop-shop type place, and working with Jenny helped make the whole process easier! We love that Turf Valley has on site catering and an onsite hotel, so we didn’t have to worry about shuttling our guests to and from venues. They also include the price of the cake in the per person food cost.Sent on 10/05/2015
We had our ceremony and reception at Turf Valley. The ceremony went really smoothly, and there was a gorgeous area where we took pictures during cocktail hour. The outside area was so beautiful! Our guests definitely commented on the scenery- we had a nice view of the fountain.
The food was really good too. We were able to taste test several popular options, and we even gave feedback on the food at the taste test so the menu was customized to our needs for our wedding. Turf Valley gives a certain number of special meals included in the budget, which was great as we had a few guests who needed gluten free and vegetarian options. Our maître d’ was amazing and made sure that we had food and drinks throughout the night! We definitely felt taken care of by Turf Valley and would highly recommend this venue for busy people who want help with planning.
Turf Valley Resort's reply:Hi, Jessica - thank you again for your reviews! We so appreciate your taking the time to share your feedback about your wedding at Turf Valley!

We had our wedding at Turf Valley on 7/11/15 and we had the BEST experience. Leading up to the wedding we worked with our awesome coordinator Jamie who was extremely helpful and went out of her way constantly to make it our dream wedding. What made us pick this venue was the fact the everything was on-site, we had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all at Turf Valley and it was so much fun having all of our closest family members and friends come and stay. I cannot say enough great things about Turf Valley, between the beautiful outside ceremony location, to the amazing food, delicious food, professional and helpful staff, spacious suite, and etc. Turf Valley really did make wedding plan as smooth and the actual day as perfect as it could be!Sent on 07/22/2015

Our overall experience was very good. Jaime Petit was AMAZING!!! VERY quick to respond to our hundreds of questions we had for her each week. She made us feel like we were her top priority. We really appreciated everything she did for us to make our wedding planning very easy. Our wedding weekend went very smoothly. We truly appreciated the assistance Marcus, Latisha and Gloria provided for us - they were all great. Marcus' idea of setting up the Tiffany Room as the inclement weather backup venue for the outdoor ceremony took a lot of the pressure off having to make an early decision on the weather. Once the sun came back out an hour before the ceremony Gloria made everything come together perfectly in a very short period of time. The feedback we received from our guests on the food, bar and setup was very positive. It was a great party!! Thanks Turf Valley!Sent on 07/10/2015

The professionalism and expertise of every member of the Turf Valley staff we dealt with in preparation and execution of our daughter's wedding weekend was totally amazing. The knowledge and experience that came from this team made our entire weekend (which had multiple activities) a joy for all those in attendance and ourselves. There were four families preparing for their own events in attendance at our weekend who are seriously considering using Turf Valley for their functions. Jenny B. , Latisha, Rocky, Faith and Pete made our experience one of calm and comfort. Kudos to Turf Valley and MANY thanks.Sent on 06/15/2015
