Our first date was by the water & we were engaged in Hawaii, so we wanted to get married by the water as well. We wanted a small, sweet & simple ceremony with our very closest family & friends & were shocked at the prices of other vendors just to have the ceremony. So, we were especially happy to have met Mike Byrd from the Gauntlet. He offered a wedding on a tee by the water & golf carts & attendants to get our guests to the site. The night was gorgeous & so peaceful geese flew by & deer came near! We decorated the wedding site, two tables going into the reception & the tables inside. We paid for table linens, chair covers & bows, wine, beer, dinner for 60 people & it cost about the same as the lowest price of any other vendor just to have the ceremony! Dinner was absolutely delicious. The staff was not only professional & friendly, but genuinely happy for us & celebrated with us at our 4 hour long reception. Thanks, in part, to old & new friends at the Gauntlet, our wedding was one of the happiest days of our lives!

First of all, I want to thank the Gauntlet Golf Club, especially the most amazing Manager Byrd and his team. Mr. Byrd helped us survive the stressful times. He made sure that our event was special. He went extra miles just to make sure we had what we needed right from the start. I had an impression that signing the event contract was not just a simple piece of payment arrangement. It was a contract of new friendship and service. Our wedding day was very frustrating. We were supposed to have an outside wedding. We had everything planned and rehearsed. However, the weather did not cooperate on our wedding day. It rained and rained like heck. I was frustrated, stressed, and teary. Luckily, with the Gauntlet Golf Club’s support led by Mr. Byrd we survived with flying colors at the end of the dark tunnel. They had the venue ready in order for us to have the ceremony indoors. Please share my deepest gratitude to Mr. Byrd and the rest of the staff during our event. They were fantastic. They went above and beyond supportive. They helped us make it through and helped us enjoy what could have been a disaster. After all, wedding is just the beginning of a wonderful years of marriage.

I held my wedding of about 80 people at the Gauntlet for my February 8, 2014 wedding. It was so wonderful and I had such a great wedding. I owe it all to the Gauntlet and Tiffany-rae for making my wedding so beautiful. It looked amazing, and even though we had to bring the wedding inside at the last minute, they made it look wonderful.

Overall we were happy with our wedding at the Gauntlet.

It really was cheaper than any other venue in the area if you compare what you are getting for your money.

We had a few issues such as the bar closing early, and vegetarian dishes not being provided as asked but in the grand scheme of things nothing major.

I will say that they did make up for their mistakes and refunded me some money for the mistakes.

Service from the bar staff and banquet crew was great!

Overall, we're happy we chose this venue. I would definitely recommend The Gauntlet to others. That said, I have a few beefs. Reception area was not set up at the prearranged time which meant that we had to decorate later than expected (made us very late for the rehearsal dinner). Ceremony site was not set up at told time (my family member had to throw decorations up last minute). Event coordinator was absent on wedding day and her fill-in was more interested in smoking cigarettes and the DJ, and less interested in assisting with the wedding/reception. The bartender didn't know how to make even the most basic drinks. And the caterer did not keep track of the # bottles used for champagne toast, so we were charged the pre-ordered amount even though there were many less guests than originally anticipated.
...So beautiful venue, but you're on your own.

Gauntlet Golf Club responded with the following comments:

I am disappointed that the staff at your wedding was not as professional as we have trained them to be. We have mades some major changes in our staffing structure for weddings. I would like to know when this wedding took place, so that I can make sure the we can go forward knowing that this was before or after our staffing changes took effect. We are always striving to improve our product, and we can only do so when we receive comments such as yours. If you would like to help better improve our event venue please respond with the month and year of your wedding.

I had my wedding here a few months ago. My wedding was the day after a big storm in the Stafford area. The Gauntlet lost power that night. They had all day to get generators or do whatever they needed to get the power up and running. The general manager who kept me in the loop all day about the electric had the entire day to get things straight. I know that the storm and electric outage was not planned, but if you are doing weddings and such events, you should be prepared for all of these problems. I arrived at the Gauntlet to start getting ready and it was just as hot inside as it was outside(middle of the summer by the way). My cake was melting and leaning to the side because of the heat. In all my pictures, everyone has sweat dripping off of them. Some of my wedding party was getting sick from heat exhaustion. Outside they put this gigantic fan that is in all of my pictures now. And to top it off..the bathrooms weren't working. All of my guest and wedding party, and myself(yes, with my huge ballgown) had to use a port-o-potty! If I am spending $7,000 on a wedding venue, they need to be prepared for anything and this place obviously is not. They would not even reimburse us part of the $7,000 that we spent on this place, even though we didn't have AC, bathrooms, etc. I highly recommend looking for another venue. This is not the place that someone wants to get married at!

They had all day to get generators or do whatever they needed to get the power up and running. The general manager who kept me in the loop all day about the electric had the entire day to get things straight. I know that the storm and electric outage was not planned, but if you are doing weddings and such events, you should be prepared for all of these problems. I arrived at the Gauntlet to start getting ready and it was just as hot inside as it was outside(middle of the summer by the way). My cake was melting and leaning to the side because of the heat. In all my pictures, everyone has sweat dripping off of them. Some of my wedding party was getting sick from heat exhaustion. Outside they put this gigantic fan that is in all of my pictures now. And to top it off..the bathrooms weren't working. All of my guest and wedding party, and myself(yes, with my huge ballgown) had to use a port-o-potty! If I am spending $7,000 on a wedding venue, they need to be prepared for anything and this place obviously is not. They would not even reimburse us part of the $7,000 that we spent on this place, even though we didn't have AC, bathrooms, etc. I highly recommend looking for another venue. This is not the place that someone wants to get married at! Read less

In response to the previous review I would say that we are extremely disappointed that any of our guests would have such an unpleasant experience. The evening prior to this event the Middle Atlantic region was hit with a Derecho storm resulting in mass outages throughout the area. I must agree we were not completely prepared for such an event. Although we were able to secure two additional generators, this only allowed us to run refrigeration, cooking equipment, minimal lighting and the DJ station. Unfortunately the day was nearly 100 degrees with high humidity and added to the difficulty of the day with no air conditioning. In my communications with the wedding party I was never given any indication that they wanted to cancel the event, had I, I would have been more than willing to give a full refund. In closing, I would say that my staff and I did everything within our means to make things happen given the circumstances.

The Gauntlet was a perfect choice for our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and wedding reception. The course made for great photo ops and the reception room worked perfect for our party. The food is to die for and the whole package is a great value. They had all the right answers to the numerous questions that we had and made us feel very confident in their ability to make this a seemless process. Thank you, Gauntlet Golf Club!

The Gauntlet Golf Club was an excellent choice for my wedding ceremony and reception. It was very affordable and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Virginia (Ginne) did a great job and was pleasant to work with. All of my guests commented on how nice the facility was decorated and how good the food was. I would definitely recommend this venue to celebrate any special event.
