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!Sent on 28/08/2018
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!

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!Sent on 11/08/2019

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!Sent on 20/07/2018
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

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!Sent on 24/08/2017
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.

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!Sent on 15/07/2019
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,
