My daughter got engaged Sept 2014 and set her wedding day for June 2015. The ceremony was going to be held at our church but we needed a reception venue. We came across Avila Golf and Country Club in an ad (http://www.avilagolf.com/special-events/) and it looked beautiful so we scheduled a tour. We were not disappointed!!!! The Director of Sales and Special Events, Isabel Lomba, was very friendly, courteous, professional and helpful. She took us around the facility and went over some of the wedding packages. We were all immediately impressed with everything we saw and decided to look no further. From the moment we signed the contract to the wedding day, everything was perfect! We scheduled a tasting approximately 3 months before the wedding and the food was outstanding! From the appetizers, to the salad, to the main course, it was all delicious! The day of the wedding arrived and we were very excited to share my daughter’s special day with our family and friends. The entire staff at Avila was amazing, starting with Isabel but also Joey (food and beverage), Maria (head of wait staff), and the bartender!!!! Several of our guests came up to us to tell us how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food was, and how wonderful the entire Avila staff was. Needless to say, we were extremely happy to hear this! If you are looking for a first class venue to hold a wedding (or other special event), you need to seriously consider Avila Golf and Country Club. You will not regret it!!!!!!

We had both our ceremony and reception at Avila. It was absolutely breathtaking. Leading up to the wedding, I dealt with Isabel. She was amazing. She was always quick to respond, there to answer any questions I had and was very thorough and detailed with the event details, which I appreciated.
We met Bryan the night of the rehearsal dinner and he was just as awesome. He made sure everything was set up exactly how I wanted and had everything organized.
The food was so delicious! Both my husband and I got so many compliments on the food and the venue. Everyone was perfect. It was everything we imagined and more. I would highly recommend Avila to a friend. Working with both Isabel and Bryan was truly a pleasure. I wouldn't have changed a thing!
Thank you so much to the Avila team members for making our day absolutely perfect!

Isabel is wonderful. It was like meeting an old friend and having her on my side for all my plans and ideas. I live in Avila and loved working with her and the club to make my reception perfect. We also got ready in the upstairs room and the getting ready pictures were gorgeous and the food service was really nice for me and the bridesmaids. I'm so glad I chose Avila! They made sure all the decorations were in place and made the whole thing stress free. Isabel is the best!!

We had our wedding here this past year and were 100% satisfied with the service and staff at Avila Golf and County Club. From the moment we stepped foot in the venue, we were in love. The property is absolutely stunning and gorgeous and offers a beautiful space for both an indoor ceremony and reception, which was very difficult to find for the pesky weather in August. Being from New York, I was afraid that we would not find a venue that met our expectations and budget, but Avila did an amazing job with both. The guests were extremely impressed with the food that was offered, especially the lobster and filet mignon, and commented on the beauty of the whole venue. We also got to take some beautiful golf course pictures since Avila let us borrow the golf cart.

On a different note, I know some reviewers said Avila can be a bit stuck in their ways; I know that in our experience they were not comfortable with wedding planners being on their property. However, I have found that they have good reason to do so, since wedding planners are not always attentive to the property's rules as well as stipulations in the contract that you sign with Avila. I found that Avila was extremely accommodating and professional and came through for us in many ways in the end, and I felt that they had our best interest in mind. Isabel (Director of Special Events) was the first person that I saw on the wedding day and came in the morning to congratulate me when we arrived at the venue. She gave us a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine, which came in useful when our bottle of 1976 Dom Perignon came damaged to the site. The staff at Avila were prompt and attentive when it came to sticking to the timeline. Finally, they were very accommodating even when things did not go as planned. Overall, I feel that the venue was beautiful and we are very happy that we hired them! Thank you for all you did to make our day special.

Avila Golf & Country club was the perfect place for our wedding! This venue is absolutely gorgeous!! My Husband and I had the pleasure of working with Isabel and Bryan; from the start we found them to be completely professional as well as warm and very friendly. The communication was always prompt (Isabel responded immediately) we had a wonderful experience; everything was beautiful and set up just the way we wanted. I have no words to express how happy we were with everything.

I would definitely recommend this venue for any special occasion

Avila Country Club is a beautiful venue and the staff are extremely accommodating. They are so experienced at hosting events that we did not even hire a wedding coordinator. The Avila event directors kept all on time, were professional and gracious and kindly gave us great advice on orchestrating this event. They were tireless in handling guests and many questions and stepped forward as needs arose throughout the day. The venue itself requires very little decor as it is absolutely beautiful. We had the elegant coffee station and some incredible appetizers as a highlight to the event. All the catering and preparation details were perfect. Overall, we were most impressed with the country club staff.

Once our date was secured with a deposit the customer service we received from Isabel was lacking. She tried to require us to order chairs after we were told we could use the Avila chairs. Then she told us we were liable, if chairs scratched the dance floor. She was also not considerate regarding allergies. She did not offer to do anything about the latex gloves the kitchen uses, nor did she want to accommodate a shellfish allergy. As for the assistant manager Brian- we did not feel welcomed or even respected by him. He scoffed at the idea of serving salt and pepper with dinner or champagne to our guests (even with an open bar) –he informed us that he only had 4 bottles on hand! Brian also shared very personal information about himself with our guests and vendors (things no one wants to hear at a wedding). Brian had 1 person setting up for the wedding, when asked why he said that we paid for the wedding planner and we should “get our money out of her and put her to work”. Then Avila did not return our cake stand. It took us 2 visits and 3 days to retrieve the cake stand. No one apologized for the inconvenience. Other not so fun facts- our guests were served blueberry muffins when they ran out of dinner rolls, guests plates were taken when they got up, empty chairs were being served meals, the groom’s meal was taken after he told the server he was coming right back to finish eating, guests also mentioned that their shrimp were small/not jumbo, the cake was only served to guests that were in a chairs (which caused us to take 6 boxes of cake home that was wasted), about 15 Avila employees showed up around 10:30pm to prepare the room for the event the next day- when the space was reserved solely for our event until midnight, they touched our wedding party’s personal things upstairs as a result many things were lost (shoes, toiletries, clothing, wedding items, etc.). I would not recommend this place for your wedding due to the poor quality of customer service.

We could not have been happier with Isabel, Brian, and everyone at Avila. It was absolutely the perfect venue, and they do a fabulous job from start to finish. It's a gorgeous facility and the staff is incredible. The food at our wedding was honestly some of the best we've ever had, and if we could do it all over again we wouldn't change a single thing. We can't say enough good things! If you're considering having your wedding here, please check it out. You won't be disappointed!
