    The space was absolutely perfect for our ceremony (gazebo) and reception (banquet hall). Staff were friendly and took pleasure/pride in the event. Expectations and services were clear in the planning process so we knew exactly what to expect and what we were paying for. The ... View more events coordinator was able to manage our unique circumstances (bride and groom were in America and therefore organising things via bride's mother, groom had specific wine requests, bride, groom's father, maid of honour, and some guests had specific dietary needs). Cost included tickets to a tasting event to trial food, meetings and communications with events organiser, venue, set-up (reception and ceremony spaces - tables, chairs, podium, microphone, cutlery/glassware/plateware), service, food, drinks, and clean-up.

    University Golf Club was a great venue. We liked that we could have the ceremony and reception at the same venue- saving travel time for our guests. The venue was able to recommend other vendors for wedding services (flowers, cake, etc), which was very useful.

    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.

    If you want a stress-free event, book at UGC. Seriously, they are the friendliest, most flexible and VERY experienced at what they do. Our event co-ordinator worked with us to come up with a menu that would satisfy a number of different and often conflicting dietary needs. Not ... View more only was there "something for everyone" to eat at our wedding, but there was lots for everyone. In fact they managed to make 90% of the food choices gluten-free (for me and a few family members). They also labelled the buffet entrees with allergen alerts. Most importantly, everyone enjoyed the food. The set-up was done perfectly, and the bartender and wait-staff were very professional and good at their jobs!
