    Beyond expectations

    We had a 5 stars experience while planning and hosting our wedding at UGC. We value the flexibility and willigness to attend our specific needs. The attention to details was remarkable and their garden is just stunning. High Quality food and a beautiful environment for a reasonable price. We had a first booking experience with another vendor for our wedding and during that planning process we felt tense because of the many demands of the venue. At UGC we had a totally different experience. We felt the support of the staff to create our special day just as we wanted, and working side by side with us to overcome the challenges of covid and weather. Thanks for providing an excellent events/banquet service with a high sense of empathy and sensitivity.

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Thank you so much for the review Marialejandra. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you on the planning and of course with our Banquet team on your special day. All the best to you and your husband. SIncerely, Joni, UGC's Event Coordinator

    Beautiful venue & Amazing Service

    We are very pleased to have our reception at UGC! We had a church wedding but we rented the gazebo to have our cocktail hour where guests can enjoy some acoustic music and rented some fun lawn games ! Joni, the wedding coordinator, is very accommodating and professional! She answered all our inquiries and made sure that everything is set up on the actual wedding day! The venue is soo beautiful and guests are raving how great the food is! Thank you so much Joni !

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Leilani. Great to hear you enjoyed your wedding day and enjoyed your experience at UGC. We appreciate the review and wish you both only the best as you move forward in married life. Joni, Event Coordinator, University Golf Club

    Incredible! Absolutely incredible!

    Everything was absolutely perfect and the team at University Golf Club were a pleasure to work with. First class! The venue was magical and we lost count of the guests who were still commenting on how amazing the food was, even weeks after the wedding!

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Chris, thank you so much for your review, much appreciated. University Golf Club is so happy you felt everything perfect. We wish you and your bride all the best as you begin married life! Sincerely,
    Joni, Event Coordinator, University Golf Club

    Professional, Flexible and Great Value

    We had a really short 3 months to plan our wedding for ~100 guests and because UGC has their venue availability posted right on their website, we didn't waste any time communicating only to find out the venue isn't available for our wedding date. Joni's professionalism, responsiveness and high level of organization skill made the coordination extremely stress free and efficient - we were in and out of her office in 45mins without even seeing the venue beforehand! Then the food - not only were they flexible changing up some of the items, EVERYONE commented on how great the food was and was impressed with the quality of everything that was served. The design and location of the ladies' locker room are semi-private, making it perfect for the grand entrance.

    Value - UGC included just about every wedding necessity: sit down tables, stand up tables, tablecloths, flowers & candles for table decorations, sprinkles, microphones, red carpet, chairs for the outside gazebo area (and even a sofa set for the reception room!) so we really didn't need to coordinate with many other vendors. The outdoor ceremony area is amazing - the trellis and bridge leading up to the gazebo and the stream all around, made this the perfect venue we didn't know existed.

    Joni and the entire staff (Patrick was our banquet captain) were attentive and made sure we had food (I think in just about every photo that I was in, I had food in my mouth/hand) and kept all our guests happily fed and in high spirits.

    Looking back, I would've asked my day of wedding coordinator/friend to make sure the microphones were set up in both the reception room and the gazebo area and test out the sound system beforehand, the music at the gazebo area was a little quiet so we were a bit hesitant to start walking down the aisle not knowing if the processional music had started or not and have the drinks menu printed separately so guests can see what drinks' options they have easier. We probably should've also asked to have two bartenders instead because it was so hot.

    Overall, we couldn't be happier and considered ourselves extremely lucky being able to have our wedding and cocktail reception here. Lots of thanks to Joni and the team at UGC!

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Rebecca and William! It was great working with you both and your enthusiasm for the fun day you planned for you and your guests paid off! It was a lovely wedding and I'm sure your guests will be commenting for years to come! Great idea to have outdoor games and our Chef was happy to make your requested food for your wedding day! All the best as you settle into married life! Cheers, Joni, Event Coordinator, University Golf Club

    Excellent wedding venue!

    Big “thank you” to Joni and the staff at UGC! Our April 2018 wedding was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have chosen a better venue. All of the staff we dealt with were so helpful and friendly. We can't thank them enough for making our wedding such a memorable day!

    Joni, the event coordinator at UGC, was so helpful, and she was so organized when we met with her a month and a half before our wedding. She answered every question that we emailed her, and she responded in a timely manner every time. Joni was very accommodating with any requests that we had. We appreciated this very much. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!

    In regards to the venue itself:
    - We loved the gazebo, and the beautiful path/walkway down to it, and the bridge. It was a very picturesque and romantic spot to get married. The red carpet was a nice touch as well.
    - The Salons room made for a beautiful reception room.
    - The whole venue was very well kept and maintained.
    - The food and beverage menus were impressive and well priced. It was nice having many meal options to choose from, and the variety of dishes was excellent!
    - The food was excellent! A lot of our guests commented on how good it was.
    - It was really nice to attend their annual tasting event as well.

    We can’t say enough good things about UGC, and we will be sure to recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thanks, again!

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Thanks so much for the review Sarah & Derek! University Golf Club appreciates that very much and are super glad you had a great time on your wedding day! We hope your 1st summer as a married couple has gone well and wish you all the best moving forward! It was great working with you to plan your special day! Take care, Joni, Event Coordinator, University Golf Club

    Once I engaged I began to look for the wedding venue for our big day; like most brides, I researched intensively before I made my final decision. University Golf Club offered more than we could expect for the budget we have, and our guests were so amazed in all aspects. The minimum cost, rental for ceremony site & banquet room are reasonable, the ceremony site is so beautiful, meals are delicious and comes with lots of variety, and staff are so responsive, professional and do their best to meet your needs. I was so happy that I chose University Golf Club for the most important of my life and I strongly recommend it to all brides & grooms-to-be!

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind review Novia! It was a pleasure working with you and Greg and I am so happy you enjoyed your University Golf Club experience. I wish you all the best as you continue into your married life. Sincerely, Joni, Event Coordinator, University Golf Club.

    6/5 Stars!

    We had such a great experience having our wedding at UBC Golf Club! We worked with Joni who was so professional and organized, it's easy to tell she has a lot of experience in this industry. We had to postpose a couple of times due to Covid, but Joni was so accommodating and made everything very stress free. The venue, especially the outside ceremony area with the gazebo, is stunning. The food was amazing, we got so many compliments on how good the dinner was! There were so many food options and it was all fantastic. The staff were all super friendly and helpful and helped to ensure everything went smoothly. My husband literally told me if he could give this venue 6/5 stars he would lol we can't recommend this venue enough!

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Wow, thanks for the kind words Marla! I'm so happy this could finally happen for you both after the last 2 years with COVID postponements. It was great working with you both and I wish you all the best as you move forward into married life!
    Sincerely,
    Joni M, Events Manager, University Golf Club

    Beautiful venue and wonderful staff!

    When we first saw the ceremony site at University Golf Club, we knew it was the perfect venue for us, with the cute gazebo, little bridge over a stream, and the beautiful gardens. Joni, UGC’s Events Coordinator, was always quick to respond to our emails whether it was by email or phone. She was organized and always provided clear information, whether it was for our wedding specifically or the wedding tasting event. The Banquet Team, led by Naser and Tom, was also splendid. They were polite and efficient at our wedding reception and Tom in particular was very friendly to us and our guests. The quality of the food was exceptional! Everything from the canapes to the prime rib to the late night tacos was delicious. Overall, we’re very pleased with the beautiful venue and the wonderful staff - highly recommended!

    University Golf Club's reply:

    Emily and Tudor we thank you for selecting the University Golf Club as your wedding venue. It was great working with you and we hope you will come back to the spot you got married in our gazebo for many years to come to remember your special day! All the best,
    Joni, Event Coordinator, UGC
