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. University Golf Club offered more than we could expect for the budget we have, and our guests were so amazed in all aspects. The ... View more 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!
Venue was very elegant and gorgeous. The ceremony at the gazebo turned out very lovely and everyone was very impressed with the garden area. The food at the reception was delicious and my relatives are still saying how good it was (after 3 weeks)! Joni was very quick to respond ...

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!
Excellent venue with a beautiful gazebo area for your ceremony and 2 rooms to choose from - a smaller square room for up to 90 seated guests for a larger room for up to 200 guests. Both rooms are very nice. Rental fee for both rooms are VERY GOOD even for high season. The events ... View more co-ordinator was AMAZING. Reply time was 100% and so clear and detailed. You get a free meeting with her to go over everything. She has a list of questions and it really helps both you and her staff to make sure your wedding day is perfect. She was a true pleasure to work with. Can't say enough about the service, especially provided by the events co-ordinatory, Joni. Now we didn't get any deals but when you get EXCELLENT SERVICE, you don't go shopping for deals. Great service means you can be carefree and enjoy your wedding planning and wedding day. I think this is MUCH more important than saving a few dollars. The food was delicious and the value was great! All of their dinner buffet menus were such great value and everything sounded so good. You will be invited to a tasting event where you try some of their dishes and wine! So that really helps you choose the menu. A lot of things were included that many venues dont' include - ceremony chairs, ceremony Micrcophone and speaker. Table cloths, a large variety of colours of napkins, plenty of tables for gifts, sign in, etc, speakers in reception room, microphone. The chairs are already decent and don't need to be decorated - great if yolu're on a budget and dont' care for sashes or chair covers! The only thing negative (but i can totally see past it) was that shot glasses were limited so it took time for guests to get their drinks. Addtionally, one of the vodkas ran out and it took the bartender a little while to get another bottle. Other than that, everything was perfect - the service, the venue, the food! Would LOVE to have another event here for sure!
