  • Carolina trace was everything we dreamed of and more for our wedding day! It’s beautiful, well priced, and all inclusive! Ellen was so great to work with! She listened to everything we wanted and was always so quick to respond to all of our emails. Everyone is still raving about how delicious the food was. (Order the Parmesan risotto-you won’t regret it!) The presentation of everything was stunning and everything we asked for. I would recommend this venue to anyone getting married! Thank you Ellen and to Carolina Trace for making our dream wedding a reality!!!

  • Ellen was a joy to work with and helped plan a lovely sit-down luncheon to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. Social distancing was strictly observed by the way the tables were set in the Heartstone Room. We even had 2 tables on the outside patio, complete with linen tableclothes and napkins. We had many compliments on the meal as well as the 2 young ladies that served us. The price for everything was more than fair, and Ellen was there the entire time to oversee things. She even made sure that the walls of the outside patio were freshly washed. It was truly a very special day with many wonderful memories.

  • Carolina Trace was a beautiful venue to have our wedding last weekend. Ellen and her team did a phenomenal job! Ellen was very professional, responsive, flexible, and accommodating to all of our needs to make our day extra special. The food was amazing and being able to taste it before hand was definitely a great perk. We had severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and hail during our ceremony which prevented it from being outside but having the flexibility to be indoors was awesome. It turned out beautiful anyway! If you need a wedding venue then definitely look into Carolina Trace!

  • Carolina Trace was recommended to us by a friend after we started our venue search and we are so happy that we arranged a meeting with them! The venue and the grounds are absolutely beautiful! The lake lawn where outdoor ceremonies are held is full of natural greenery and seasonal flowers so outdoor decor is not needed! The food is also excellent, and there are many options to choose from. We loved working with Ellen, the coordinator, and found all the other staff to be very friendly and accommodating. I had no issues with the “flow” of our day, which was my biggest fear as a bride who planned the entire wedding! I highly recommend Carolina Trace as a wedding venue- and my husband and groomsmen really enjoyed the golf course as well!

  • When looking for a venue, we wanted something that took a lot of the stress out of the planning. We also wanted an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception, with a single location. Carolina Trace checked all those boxes! Being a country club, they serve as the caterer, coordinator, and venue, with all "extras" like tables and chairs and linens being included. This takes so much of the stress out of wedding planning and their inclusive package is reasonably priced for everything you get! Not to mention, the garden ceremony location and ballroom are gorgeous for a classic, timeless wedding. They have a multi-purpose room that serves as the bridal suite, which isn't huge but was plenty for my wedding party. If you want a stress-free experience and a beautiful outdoor venue, look no further!

  • From the moment we started looking at venues. She was our first stop. She was so nice, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Such a sweet person. I was so confident in her that before we left CTCC I knew this would be the place. We looked at other venues and nothing compared.

  • I have been working with Ellen planning my wedding at Carolina Trace Country club and I couldn't be happier. Ellen is so great, knowledgeable, and responsive. I'm so looking forward to my wedding in May 2020. The outdoor setting at this place is spectacular and I can't wait to have pictures taken there. The venue is perfect as it can accommodate both big and small weddings. Thank you Ellen!

  • This was the most helpful and understanding group of people. Victoria Harper and her people were great. My guests raved about the food and how willing everyone was to do anything and everything that was asked. I can't state how much it meant to my family.

  • I would love to leave a positive review like I had previously written when Victoria was the event planner here. But sadly, we had a terrible and horrific experience with the new event coordinator Ellen. We original booked this venue with Victoria and were so excited to have our wedding at this beautiful venue. The beautiful building and grounds are just not worth it when you have to deal with this women. Shortly after setting our date Ellen took over and everything went south. We had horrible customer service throughout the planning process. When we met her for the very first time it was at our food tasting. She was mad and irritated that we were 20 min early for our appointment. She also was not familiar with either the food or bar menu. When we sat down for our plated dinner food tasting she ask “are you doing a buffet or plated dinner?” Even though our contract was sitting right in front of her and she should have known that based on what we ordered a few days prior. She was ver... Read more
