Gull Lake Country Club is beautiful for a wedding reception! The food was great and the venue itself is just remarkable. Being able to take pictures on the property was awesome as it's on the lake and if you're lucky, you can have "golden hour" photos taken. Highly recommend this venue!

Gull Lake has a special place in our hearts. This is why we chose to have our wedding at the Gull Lake Country Club. Planning was easy as Mike was very responsive to all our questions. Our wedding day was beautiful and it really was the best day ever! However, some feedback that might be helpful for future brides. They actually served us the wrong entrée item the day of our wedding (neither my husband or I said anything because it still tasted great and we are pretty laid back). I worked meticulously on putting together all the details for the wedding day and sent a detailed document to Mike to share with the staff. When our wedding day came around, the staff had no idea how to set the room. Luckily, we had an extra detail sheet to give to the staff, so it was no big deal. The Banquet staff is amazing! We had to move our outdoor ceremony inside due to rain and the staff, pulled together to move around tables and accommodate our last minute change. Despite all this we were very happy. I would recommend this venue to brides!

The club was easy to work with and had the lowest rates for our Sunday morning wedding. The food was good and we only had to have meetings with one person in order to plan our ceremony, reception, and rehearsal dinner. Overall, I would recommend them to someone else. A few problems we ran into was the lack of professionalism. For example, we never signed a formal contract, the main person miscommunicated some information and they had started to set up for a plated meal when we decided on a buffet. The setting was beautiful and everyone had a wonderful time. Good for smaller weddings up to 150ish people.

The staff at Gull Lake Country Club truly went above and beyond to help make our day perfect! Mike Rossen and Kristen Kuball were amazing to work with. Though the country club does tons of weddings each year, they really took care to remember the small details that we requested and made us feel like we were their only concern at the time. We are so thankful for the time they invested to ensure that all of the pieces came together flawlessly--and they did! From the scenery to the weather and service, we had the greatest day we could have asked for. If you want the most stress-free environment to plan a wedding in, the folks at GLCC have you covered. If you need anything, they will go out of their way to make it happen for you. We would recommend this venue to anyone!

I was very happy with this venue except for a couple of things that were my fault. We had 102 guests and I ordered to appetizers to feed 125 people. I guess by 5:20 they were out of appetizers. We didn't arrive until 5:40 from having photos taken at the church. The lady came to me right away to ask if I wanted more appetizers put out. She said dinner was ready so I said we will just do dinner right away instead of waiting until 6. She said many people had showed up early and loaded up their plates quite high. She was not able to put out more appetizers until I ok'd more. Put a 5 p.m. reception on the invitation. The ceremony didn't last long and everyone went to the reception early. I should have told them if they run out before 5:45 to put out more. I've been to other weddings where people heap their plates with cheese and vegies and the last 2 out of 3 weddings I went to also ran out of appetizers so I should have known better. Also, the gift table was out in the lobby and just didn't feel comfortable with it there. I think if I had to do it again I would put it in with the guests. But the food was good and they gave us a good price on everything since we had a winter wedding. They will negotiate. Staff was friendly. One thing I was very happy with was that I didn't have to have my count in until the Wednesday before the wedding. I had so many people that didn't rsvp I had to call people to get an accurate count. I then had a couple of people that had emergencies a few days before the wedding and knew they weren't coming so it still gave me time to take them off the list.

Gull Lake was the perfect venue for our wedding and they did a great job. Specifically, Mike and Kristen were great throughout the whole process. They gave us great ideas, were professional, and accommodated everything we wanted. They pulled off the whole wedding perfectly even with the power in the area going out for an hour. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

We loved having our wedding at GLCC. I dealt almost exclusively with Mike, who was warm, easy-going and eager to work with us on all fronts (set-up, menu, budget...you name it). Mike and his staff were WONDERFUL to us and our guests on the day of. They kept us in the loop, made sure to set aside food for us, and always kept our drinks full. They were kind, fun and clearly knew how to how to run the show. We had an emergency situation at the end of the night, and they handled it with such class and efficiency, and I'm forever grateful for their support and help when we needed it.

I highly recommend GLCC for any event - there's no better place in the area to have a great party and picturesque setting. Book your wedding here now - you won't be disappointed!

The food was delicious and the setting was beautiful! The guy in charge of everything is awesome to work with when you first meet him but after you give him money, he is very short and doesn't have time for you. The day of the wedding was chaos. Had the wrong chairs set up and didn't go as smoothly as it should have.

We recently had our reception at the GLCC and do not have a single complaint! We loved our food (beef and tuscan chicken) buffet and thought it was really reasonably priced! Everyone continued to tell us that the food was great. I was specific about what I wanted for table setup, ect. and everything was exactly like I'd asked. The staff was excellent-very friendly but not overwhelming. The manager was very easy to work with and accomodated any request I had. E-mail communication with him seemed to work best.

The Gull Lake Country club is a beautiful setting for any wedding. The food was great, but was slightly different from what we tried at our food tasting. The staff was friendly and helpful. Alcohol prices are VERY EXPENSIVE, but can be negotiated. Also, the club manager was NEVER at his desk, so I would always have to leave messages.

We chose the Gull Lake Country Club for our reception. This venue was gorgeous. I am a little sour with our bill because we were charged for an outdoor fire pit that was never used. They did end up deducting the charge from our bill. The food was AMAZING. Our guests were impressed.

We had an AMAZING experience with the country club!!! We met with Mike several times throughout our engagement and he was always willing to make appointments with us to discuss our day.

Bar manager kept us in the loop on alcohol consumption, food was fabulous and the politeness and responsiveness of the entire waitstaff wowed our guests. DEFINITELY recommend!!!

Gull Lake Country Club was an extremly laid back place to get married, I couldn't have asked for anything better. Not only is the lake beautiful but the country club itself is gorgeous. Mike and his assistant were more then helpful, my ice sculpture wasn't there on time and Mike called and got it take care of right away so we didn't have to worry about it. I would recommend Gull Lake Country Club to everyone!

I might be partial to the country club because it's where I met my husband. But I just love it. I love the lake, and I love the vibe of the country club. They make you feel so good, like you are part of the family.

Mike was a pleasure to work with, and really let us do whatever we wanted. He was so easy going, which was great for me because I had a tight budget. I was able to setup the day before, which was great because we did that all ourselves. The food was good, I'm not going to say AMAZING because heck...who can get food for 185 people to be amazing. It was warm, and out on time and that was good enough for me. We didn't have an open bar, because well...I thought people could get plenty drunk off beer and wine (and they did), or if they wanted to drink something else then they could pay for it. We did have a signature drink that was passed during the cocktail hour out on the patio and I think people really enjoyed that. I also saved a ton of money by having it at the country club because they are so flexible, no minimum to spend, no gimmicks or run-arounds.

Having our ceremony and reception at Gull Lake Country Club helped us have the wedding of our dreams on a budget, and it still felt like a million bucks :)

It is a beautiful reception venue with a gorgeous view of Gull Lake! Prices were GREAT for food, especially since we negotiated. If you are tough with your negotiations, you'll do very well - ie we had a plate served dinner with two meats, asparagus, and red potatoes for $13 pp...but if you look at menu prices, they charge $18 & up for a food line. We definitely got a great value! Our negotiating point was that our wedding was on Friday night! However, there were some major issues with what happened at the actual reception. First, the food was an hour late coming out of the kitchen, and the head chef kept coming to me (the bride) to ask if we could cut the cake, do our dances, ect before their food was done. Second, they did not keep track of the bar tab and overcharged us approximately 2000 AFTER the reception in a miscalculated mess because of it. Third, until we paid said amount after the reception, our decorations and belongings were held captive, actually for ransom you might say...
