  • I wanted to take a moment and thank you ever so much for everything you and Golden Ocala did to make the wedding of Jake and Stephanie so fantastic! It was a dream come true for Stephanie and I. From the moment we first met you back in January, you were there every moment we needed you. Your staff at Golden Ocala was exemplary. We could not have enjoyed our time at the club more. Every invited guest felt appreciated and commented on how it was the most beautiful and elegant wedding that they had ever attended. I attribute a lot of that to you and your team. From the Spa, to the rented Villas, to the venue. Absolute perfection. Everyone commented on how great the food was. Beyond all that, we could not have done this without you most of all. I truly thank you for being so warm and caring. As well as, ensuring that Stephanie and Jake had a day of cherished and treasured memories. Pulling off a wedding like that is no easy task, but you make it seem easy. Again, thank... Read more

  • My wedding was flawless thanks to the staff at Golden Ocala! From start to finish it was done seamlessly and every detail was perfect. Alisa was there every step of the way, she also was great at reminding me when things were due and decisions were needed. Nikki who assisted Alisa was also phenomenal with helping especially the day of (like when I completely forgot to put my veil on before walking down the aisle, so she ran to the building we got ready in to go get it!) Chef Rick's food received endless compliments from my family and guest- our food tasting was extremely difficult because it was so hard to narrow down our choices, everything was delicious. Robert and his serving team were on point the whole night, if someone had an empty drink or plate they were there immediately there to remove and refill. I really cannot compliment the entire team enough, my wedding was an absolute fairy tale thanks to all of the staff at Golden Ocala!

  • We recently had our wedding at Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club in November 2019 and couldn’t be happier with everything about the day. Alisa was very helpful along the way and flexible to accommodate the ideas and decor we had in mind. The food was phenomenal and the service staff very polite and friendly. Many guests commented on how beautiful the location was, and our pictures turned out exceptional with the breathtaking landscapes and backgrounds. On top of being the perfect venue for what we envisioned for our wedding, it was a fantastic value, wrapping all the costs into one simple package. We highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in Central Florida.

  • Golden Ocala is the perfect place is you want an all inclusive wedding. They take care of the food, venue, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and don't over look any details. Any decorations you want on the reception tables or during cocktail hour you just tell them and they will set it up for you. That took off a lot of stress and it was amazing. The location is absolutely stunning and you have so many options to choose for you picture locations. Thank you so much Alisa and Niki for making our special day so stress free and amazing! Because of these two we could enjoy our wedding and being with family and friends!

  • I knew from the moment I stepped foot through the door of Golden Ocala that this was my venue. I'd spent a lot of time searching venues and going on tours and nothing was cutting it. I was really beginning to think my dream venue was going to be out of budget and I was going to have to settle. Then, I took a chance on a venue that was out of the way and boy was that the best decision I ever made. This place is seriously a hidden gem. From the grand entrance and beautiful tree-lined road to the club house, it definitely packs a punch. Don't even get me started on the chandeliers in the ballroom and the stunning staircase leading down from the balcony. It's classy, elegant and just jaw-dropping. It screams luxury wedding, but doesn't carry that price tag. My guests could NOT stop talking about how gorgeous this place was and how it was one of the most beautiful venues they'd seen! In addition, to the visuals, the staff at Golden Ocala were amazing and super accommodating. About ... Read more

  • I have nothing bad to say about Golden Ocala. We toured the venue about 1.5 years in advance. We were asked if I wanted to book the date and I couldn't commit yet. When we came back, we found out they reserved the date for us because they knew we would come back. I am so glad we did. When we first started, Julianne was our coordinator. I know there are mixed reviews about her but she was very pleasent with us. A few months before our wedding, Julianne stopped working here. I was very impressed at how everyone came together to answer my questions and take care of me. The new coordinator, Alisa, is amazing. She made sure everything went smoothly and was quick to answer all my questions. My day of coordinator, Nikki, is one of the best people I have ever met. She made sure we were happy and well taken care of from the rehearsal to the day after. She was so attentive and made sure everything was how we wanted it. The rehearsal dinner was at the spa and was perfect. The wedding itself was g... Read more

  • Where do I even begin. From the very first moment my husband and I had walked into Golden Ocala, we knew off the bat this is where we were getting married. Between the several beautiful places to have the ceremony and also the options to have the reception, we were head over heels. The grounds are beautiful and the workers are extremely helpful. The food was so on point that I received many compliments about it. Everything was absolutely perfect. Julianne, who is amazing, seriously helped me since the moment we met her to the very next morning after the wedding. She was so patient and understanding and worked with us the whole time. She made sure my day-of ran as smoothly as possible and it did!! I love Julianne and again want to thank her so much for helping my day come true!!!!! We highly recommend Golden Ocala with Julianne as your wedding planner!

  • The venue was beautiful, and it was great that their normal decor/rose garden meant we didn’t have to spend much extra on decorations. The coordinators were great to work with, very friendly and professional and took everything in stride. The quality of the plated meals was less than we had expected based on the tasting, and for some reason they put out around 90 chairs for our ceremony in the rose garden, even though they knew we had about 75 total guests (including us and 12 bridal party). This caused some major confusion when it seemed like there were many people who hadn’t shown up when it was time to start, and caused the pictures to have a bunch of empty seats. Aside from those things, it was great! I definitely would not recommend dealing with Royal Shell Rentals, however. That is the real estate company that handles all the townhouse and on-property rentals. It was wonderful being able to stay on the property, but dealing with the people at Royal Shell was a COMPLETE nigh... Read more
