  • The venue is beautiful all year around! We initially planned our wedding for spring, but alas, we'll be having a winter wedding now. The staff at the Refuge are great to work with - they respond quickly, are flexible, listen to what we had in mind, and helped us get there.

  • The Refuge Golf Club was a beautiful venue. The staff/coordinator was very helpful through the planning process. The food was absolutely amazing. We had nothing but compliments. Food service was fast and efficient. Overall, had we needed to do this again we would without a doubt go to the Refuge again.

  • I would 100% recommend The Refuge for your wedding venue. They are extremely affordable and the venue is stunning. We got married on 12/29/18 and received discounts for getting married off season. We paid for our wedding ourselves and had a strict budget and The Refuge worked with us to create a pizza/pasta/salad buffet for our guests and it was a hit! Our 11th table to get food stated their plates were filled with hot food. We got so many compliments on the food and man, was it affordable. Christa is their wedding coordinator and so helpful. She answered all questions promptly and was just so great throughout the planning process and day of. The venue staff is amazing and I just can't give them enough praise. We were able to clean up the next day as well, since there were no events that Sunday. Keep in mind, we got married in the winter so this will likely not be possible for someone getting married peak season

  • We had such an amazing experience with this venue from start to finish. During the duration of planning the on-site coordinator changed and we had to re-establish some things originally outlined/guaranteed through the original coordinator but in the end all original agreements were honored and everything turned out perfectly. We were able to book our Groom’s Dinner the day before the wedding so we could decorate the space as well. We held our ceremony and reception within their main ballroom and the staff was super quick to flip the space. For the ceremony we were able to use their house sound to play our own music and wireless microphone, which worked out perfectly because our videographer could tap into it for the sound on our video. The venue itself was kept very clean, which we appreciated. The building is kept in great shape and with it being so beautiful we didn’t have to do much decorating. Our inspiration for our wedding was wintertime outdoors/cabin feel, which fits with t... Read more

  • This venue was the venue of my dreams. My husband and I fell in love with it instantly when we went to see it. We booked right away. We did end up choosing a Friday wedding because the food and beverage minimum was too high on Saturday for the little amount of guests we would be having. I am actually really glad we did pick Friday because we couldn't have asked for better weather, I mean it was perfect! The next day (Saturday) it rained all day. I guess it was meant to be. Anyways, the service was so great and working with Jami went so smoothly. She was on maternity leave for awhile but it all worked out. We really wanted her to be there with us for our wedding and she was. :) She was so friendly and helpful. Sometimes she may take a day or two to respond to an email because of her work schedule but we were okay with that knowing that's how it was. We had our ceremony and reception there with the ceremony being outside. It was so beautiful! We didn't need to supply any decorations ... Read more

  • Over the last 8 years our family has continued to be very pleased in holding many Groom's Dinners, Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions at The Refuge Golf Club. My daughter held her Outdoor Ceremony and Reception there just last week. Jamie, the Coordinator, is very helpful and hands on. She truly listens to what you want, and gives suggestions from there. She keeps communication open and is easy to reach - so important. Joe, too, steps in when needed. They are very flexible and gracious with even last minute changes and accommodations. The grounds in every season are impeccably beautiful. The building is more modern rustic than stodgy lodge. The ambiance is warm yet airy; with its high, exposed post and beam ceiling, wood columns, and stone fireplace. The dance floor wood glows. All is is lightened up with its windowed walls overlooking and opening up to the huge stone patio with gazebo area and both the manicured and wild grounds. Ceremonies can be performed under the patio gazebo,... Read more

  • We got married at The Refuge Golf Club on the hottest day of the year in 2015 and we had a great time! Joe and Jamie were awesome to work with. The venue was beautiful. The outdoor flowers were in bloom and they matched the colors of our wedding party. We asked for a special set-up outdoors and it worked out wonderful. They were willing to let us use a couple a couple of golf carts later in the day and we had fun taking pictures. We also did a putting contest on the practice greens after the rehearsal for everyone in the wedding party which was a hoot. We had looked at a number of golf course venues and this was definitely the best for our budget. The dinner was wonderful and we had many compliments from our guests. The almond crusted chicken and the salmon were our favorite and done to perfection. We didn't have to worry about anything other than having fun & enjoying our special day with family and friends.

  • We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding! Jami was wonderful to work with. The setting was perfect for our winter wedding- it was so cozy with the fireplace! The food was amazing- it was one of the reasons we wanted our wedding at the Refuge because we had been to weddings there in the past. I also loved that almost all of the amenities were included in the room rental price- it made the process so much easier! Thank you to Jami and everyone else at the Refuge who made our day perfect!

  • The Refuge is a beautiful, rustic, yet modern wedding venue. We received so many compliments from our guests’ that it was the most beautiful venue they had ever seen. The vaulted ceilings and wood work was amazing. It is also reassuring to know they have two backup plans in case it rains; under the covered patio or inside. My only complaint is the tiny room for the bridal party to get ready in and no room for the groomsmen. There is no natural light in the bridal room and the connected bathroom had a strange musty odor. However, I am glad that there was a room since it was better than nothing. We ended up doing our makeup in the stairwell where there was natural light. Jessica, the wedding coordinator was great to work with and very responsive to our emails. The Refuge is a must see venue in the north metro.

  • The site for this wedding was beautiful and we got nonstop compliments on it. There are a couple things, which weren't such a hindrance but I thought I would make others aware of. First, there is a giant, beautiful fire place right in the middle of the dance floor. This is fine if you don't plan on having a large wedding but if you do, plan on having guests sit behind it and not seeing much of what is going on. Second, I feel that the wedding planner at this location was super sweet but at times was a little unprofessional. She didn't return calls until quite awhile later, which is a little annoying. Third, if you plan on taking your pictures at the site you'll have to stay off the greens (which are super beautiful) and they are not flexible on letting you use a couple golf carts to get around the place. Otherwise, I think this place is very beautiful and I know a lot of people get married here and love it.

    Hello and thank you for your review! We are happy to hear you had a wonderful experience with us, but we apologize that you felt the Wedding Coordinator you worked with was unprofessional at times. This coordinator is no longer at our location. We stride to provide the most wonderful and professional experience possible for our guests. Thank you again for your feedback!

  • We loved having our wedding at The Refuge. It was the absolutely perfect balance of rustic and elegant for us. We also wanted to be able to get married outside with a good back-up plan. Unlike many venues where "back-up" plan is having guests sit at their dinner tables, The Refuge offers a beautiful wrap-around porch/patio to get married on in the case of rain. Fortunately, we had beautiful weather but it was reassuring to me to know that there was a good back-up. Jessica, the wedding coordinator, was incredibly helpful, friendly, and very understanding of my many questions. She made me feel very comfortable that things would go smoothly the day of the wedding and they did. There were a few small things that could have been better (golf carts going behind us during pictures, the bartenders not asking our contact person if we wanted to go to the reserve alcohol) but I attribute some of those things to Jessica not being there the day of the wedding and it being run by someone who was...

  • They were great and I truly believe a wonderful value. The whole team was amazing to work with; people loved the food and the venue. It was a great place to have the wedding. I did actually recommend it to a co-worker's daughter; they are not only having their wedding there as well but with the referral we received complimentary appetizers! People thought the food was amazing too. It was truly a wonderful evening :)
