  • Elegant and perfect are the best words to describe our recent wedding at Makray Golf Club. We chose Makray for our venue just three weeks prior to the date. We were only having 10 guests due to Covid, but Laurie and Leeza were eager to help plan our wedding as though we were having 200! The location and setting were perfect. We wanted to have our ceremony outside, but were comfortable knowing there were several beautiful options indoors in case the weather did not cooperate. The venue is a fantastic location with beautiful scenery throughout the grounds. Leeza and Laurie were always prompt with responding to my emails, offered excellent recommendations for appetizers, setting, etc. and did an amazing job setting up the ceremony and private room with our decorations and party favors. Throughout the dinner, they checked in with us to see that everything was going well. Our waitress, Sue, was amazing as well! She was very attentive to each guest’s requests for drinks and ev...

  • Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Everyone we worked with at Makray was very helpful throughout the whole process. They helped make our day amazing and go off without a hitch. The food was incredible. We received rave reviews from our guests on the food and how beautiful the venue was. We planned on having our ceremony out on the golf course, but it was raining and it was just as beautiful inside. I highly recommend having your wedding at Makray. The venue was perfect!

  • I wish I could give more than 5 stars because Leeza, Laurie, and the rest of the staff at Makray definitely deserve it! From the first time we contacted them during our venue search and even after our wedding, they were warm, inviting, knowledgeable, accommodating, and responsive. And the list of wonderful adjectives I could use to describe them goes on! Even though we were out of town, scheduling meetings, including our tasting, was a breeze. They had wonderful recommendations for other vendors, and made it easy for us to make all of the little decisions we needed to make to bring everything together. In short, they took away quite a bit of the stress that comes with planning a wedding--especially from a few states away! And the venue itself is GORGEOUS! Aside from the outside of building itself and the beautiful ivy growing on the walls, he ballroom has an amazing view of the golf course, as well as a cute veranda where guests can mill about during the cocktail hour and rece...

  • We had a great experience working with Makray for our August 2019 wedding. We had both our ceremony and reception at the location and chose to have an indoor morning wedding. We chose this venue because of how beautiful and affordable it was. They also provided a lot of services in house (including catering and a day of wedding coordinator). For the services they did not provide, they have partnerships with a lot of great local vendors that are also affordable and good quality. Laurie H. was amazing and worked with us from start to finish in the planning process. She was very personable and professional and helped us see all of our options. Everything was very customizable, which we appreciated since we had a specific budget in mind for our wedding. Audrea M. was also amazing to work with and she did a wonderful job organizing the details of the event. Overall we had a great experience and so much fun. We felt so supported by the Makray team throughout our planning process and our actu... Read more

  • Makray is a gorgeous venue for a wedding! The decor and linens are so pretty and most of it is included in your wedding package price. Laurie Hudak was my wedding coordinator, she was very attentive and addressed even the smallest detail. Thanks to the creativity of Chef Walter, our guests were treated to a decedent, scrumptious, gorgeous buffet that featured over 40 different items. Our guests are still talking about the food.The entire staff was very helpful during the planning process and made sure our special day was PERFECT!

  • Leeza, Laurie, and Linda are phenomenal. They go out of their way to assist you in every way possible. The venue itself is beautiful and well maintained. The ranger takes a lot of pride in his course and it shows and makes for great photos. Even after the event was over the team on-site was extremely helpful in the clean-up and getting us all our stuff to go home. We couldn't thank this team enough for making our day everything we dreamed of and more.

  • Makray was wonderful! We got married here just over two weeks ago. I don’t know how I would have gotten through everything without Leeza! The whole team was so supportive. Chef did a fantastic job and everyone loved the food! The vegetarian tart was by far my favorite ever! I would got back just to have it again! My advice to couples is to have everything labeled and map out how you want any extra special details, or talk to them to have them note it. They will make sure it gets done!

  • If I could get married over and over again, I would continue to choose Makray. Laurie and Leeza were such a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions were answered. They also took the time to show us exactly how our potential linen choices would look in the ballroom! This definitely gave me peace of mind, rather than seeing it all come together for the first time on the Big Day. Our guests also RAVED above the food, service and the beautiful views. But that was no surprise to me and my husband! ;) Thank you Makray for making our dream wedding come true!!!

  • Makray is such an elegant venue. The food was incredible and the service was fantastic. Their wedding coordinators are tremendous! I can't speak highly enough, I did not have a wedding planner nor would I have needed one. The ladies at Makray did an incredible job setting up the venue and making sure all the details were perfect. Thank you Makray for a fantastic day!

  • It's only been a few days, but our guests are still talking about my daughter's wedding at Makray. We had to plan and execute everything in 6 months and with Leeza's amazing help, the day was perfect. The food was delicious, appetizers were a big hit and the space was beautiful. Leeza or Linda checked in with us to make sure everything was the way we wanted and it was. Can't say enough good things about the experience!

  • I can't begin to describe how amazing it was to have our wedding at Makray. They worked with us for almost 2 years to make our wedding day a dream come true. The food was AMAZING from the tasting to the day of. The staff is responsive, flexible, and worked with me & all our decor set-up to make it absolutely flawless. They even took pictures of the ballroom for me before the photographers got there. They went above & beyond. Laurie Hudak is absolutely amazing and just the sweetest human. And the grounds are immaculate and great for photography. And for the price?! Very reasonable for everything you are getting. I can't rave enough about Makray. Thank you for making our wedding dreams a reality!!

  • Just had our daughter’s wedding at Makray, and it was FABULOUS! They rocked it from the planning phase thru the execution. First of all, the venue is beautiful… the rooms have a lovely view, and the décor matched our daughter’s vision to a tee. While rain prevented us from taking golf course shots, there are plenty of other great locations for photos. Laurie and Leeza in the Catering Office were so easy to deal with: They kept us on track, advised us of options and were attentive to our needs. They are just the detail-oriented gals you want keeping tabs of your event! And so sweet and pleasant to deal with! HONEST – When I went to settle the account, they kept an accurate tab of what was still owed me! On the day of the event, the execution was flawless. Lynda, our wedding coordinator, was so calming and even helped with my daughter’s hair since I was all thumbs! Audrea and Maria had the room looking spectacular and maintained an exceptional level of service for us and... Read more

  • With a combined 40 years of experience with weddings and events, my now-husband and I scoured the Chicagoland area for the perfect place to hold our wedding and reception. We needed a space that was unique, beautiful, and one that would accommodate an outdoor ceremony in winter. We considered over 300 venues and were thoroughly impressed by the professionals at Makray. When other places told us “NO”, Makray staff told us about how they’d brainstormed solutions for us during their staff meetings. Laurie, Leeza, Audrea and Linda welcomed us into their “club” and were as nice, supportive and flexible as anyone we’ve ever met. The same spirit permeated their staff - including the grounds keeper who monitored the weather for us and got us to the best picture-taking spots on the course before rain set in - and the restaurant hostess who created a beautiful chalkboard sign for our hot chocolate bar - and Chef, who created said hot chocolate bar for us. I could go on and on! ... Read more
