Our wedding at the Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club was beautiful. The venue, food, decor and staff was exceptional. Working with Rachel was a pleasure, she was always available to answer questions and guide us through the entire process. Everyone was telling us how great the food was and how beautiful everything turned out to be. I highly recommend this venue to couples looking for an elegant venue to hold their wedding.

The venue is beautiful and perfect for a wedding. But more importantly Rachel Peace, our event planner was the best. Anything we wanted she made it happen and any requests she fixed it ASAP! Even when it rained she moved our event inside and it turned out even better! So don't worry about weather if you plan your ceremony outside because regardless this venue is still great inside or out. Thank you Rachel for making our evening the best ever!!

The moment my fiancé and I drove up to lakewood ranch golf and country club we immediately knew that this was our venue. Not only are the building and grounds perfectly manicured but the staff is so friendly! Jennifer and Rachel were absolutely phenomenal and were so willing to go above and beyond to help make our day everything we wanted it to be and more. On the day of Rachel and the staff exceeded our expectations; our guests cannot stop talking about how friendly everyone was, the fantastic food, the effortless flow of the day, and the beauty that they managed to capture. We are so grateful to everyone that helped make our day so wonderful, we wish we could get married there every weekend!

We loved this venue, the staff were easy to work with and very accommodating. We were having a hard time finding a venue that would do a more "a la carte" version of catering and more "go with the flow" kind of atmosphere and LWR Country Club was the best fit for us. While we had a casual event this place lends itself to the most formal of weddings if that is what you are going for as well. The room is gorgeous and the outside space is very nice. Our ceremony was outside and it was just perfect.

Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding. Jennifer assisted me from day one and made the wedding my dream. She was very informative, offering suggestions, advice, vendor referrals, and even money saving tips. The food was amazing. All of our guests were ranting about how delicious the filet and chicken were. It exceeded my expectations for "wedding food". It literally tasted like a high end steak house. The venue was breathless. The spiral staircase was the grand entrance I was looking for. The ballroom itself was gorgeous. It is very classy and well decorated. They had a wonderful selection of alcohol packages to choose from and the bartender was extremely interactive with our guests. Overall I would recommend this venue to any bride. I look back and know that because of Jennifer's expertise and the venue itself, I had a wedding that my guests will talk about for many years.

Our wedding was on October 20, 2012 at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club. We had our ceremony and reception there. It was the most perfect and amazing day. We worked with Kelly Kennedy at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club. She was a wonderful wedding coordinator. She made sure everything was perfect and she made our day run very smoothly. Everyone had an amazing time at our venue and they loved the food. One of my most favorite aspects of being married at Lakewood Ranch was walking down the stairs and then the aisle. Everyone thought it was so beautiful as I walked down the stairs outside that lead down to the aisle and I met my dad halfway down the stairs. It was definitely the "Wow" factor. The ballroom looked so amazing with the purple lighting. Kelly did a wonderful job working with us through the wedding planning and on the big day. She also worked so well with our wedding party and vendors. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our wedding. Everyone keeps talking about how beautiful and perfect it was. I would highly recommend Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club as a wedding venue to choose for people who are looking! Here is a link to our wedding dvd trailer from our Videographer Ian from Movie Magic Productions (another amazing vendor to use). This video will show you more about how beautiful and perfect our day was at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club! http://vimeo.com/52383483 Lauren and Chris Riccio

Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club was my dream venue. The Country Club, the ballroom, and the grounds are beyond beautiful. Our ceremony was located behind the country club on lush green grass right in front of a group of palms trees that overlooks a lake. I walked down a large winding stair case for the ceremony. It was such a beautiful entrance. The ballroom is equally as beautiful. I had many guests come up to me and tell me that their dinner was the best dinner they have ever had at a wedding! I cannot begin to say enough about Kelly Kennedy, she is the catering sales manager/event coordinator for LWR. She was so sweet, helpful, and professional. During wedding planning she was very organized and quick to respond to any question that I came across. On our actual wedding day we were blown away by how smoothly everything ran. Kelly made sure that everything was under control. Kelly and the Lakewood Ranch staff are truly amazing at what they do and I would 100% recommend using Lakewood Ranch as your wedding venue!

First of all, Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club is beautiful. We had both our ceremony and wedding reception there. I wouldn't have wanted anything more. Kelly, the wedding coordinator at the country club, was amazing to work with. She helped with all the small details, made sure everything ran smoothly, and kept everything on time. The food was amazing, which is always a huge plus with the guests. The ballroom itself it so beautiful, which is nice because then you don't have to spend so much money on decor!

Our guests said it was the by far the "best wedding food ever". We had five passed hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour. There were none left and we ordered plenty! Our guests had their choice of Filet Mignon or Chicken Madeira. Both were out of this world.

I actually got married at The Lake Club, which is part of Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club. The Lake Club is absolutely breath taking; we received so many complements on our location. “It looks like something off TV”! To me The Lake Club, is like an Italian Tuscan Castle, just beautiful from the time you drive up and it’s nice and tucked way so my wedding was completely private. The ceremony was beautiful facing the lake and the weather was perfect. Working with Kelly & Jennifer was wonderful. They were there for anything that we needed. Answered every phone call and email. Made any changes that I wanted no matter how minor or last minute. The staff on the day of the wedding was superb, they took care of all our guests and the bridal party, they made sure we had everything we needed and catered to us the entire night and the food was delicious. We received complements on how great the food was. The eggplant is to die for, it’s still the best I’ve ever had. Jennifer made sure that everything flowed seamlessly; I had no worries about how the day went. I was completely carefree on my wedding day and enjoyed every minute of it. I can’t thank Jennifer enough for all of her hard work, so gave to us. Our wedding day was like something out of a dream. Thank you so much for everything, our wedding is a day to remember.

Lakewood Ranch was the location for both my ceremony and reception. Kelly did a fabulous job from start to finish. She was on top of every step, gave us suggestions and made sure everything ran smoothly. The dinner was excellent. Our only complaint was the most expensive appetizer, smoked salmon, was served without any kind of baguette or bread to place it on, so it went mostly uneaten as guests complained they did not know what to do with it. Guests raved about the rest of the food. Lakewood Ranch is a beautiful location. It is pricey, but quality of service received made it well worth it. We had a beautiful day, thank you again to the staff.

LWRCC is BEAUTIFUL and there is no question about that. The food was amazing and my guests had a wonderful time.

But everything is not as perfect as it may seem. WATCH OUT!!!!! I do not recommend you have your reception here if you are on a budget, especially if you would like to have alcohol at your event. I chose to have an open bar based on consumption. At the end of the night they charged us nearly $2000 more than what I believe was actually reasonably consumed. We had children, pregnant and nursing mothers, and a good deal of non-drinkers and the club still contends that on average EVERY GUEST consumed 6 alocholic beverages (plus the water, tea, and coffee provided with the meal). At $6.50 a drink plus 20% tip and 6.5% sales tax you will be in for a shock!

There are plenty of options in the Bradenton/Sarasota area and this place just isn't worth it!!!

Lakewood Ranch Country Club is a beautiful place to celebrate your wedding day. We had our ceremony and reception there, Kelly and Jennifer were so helpful and sweet. They both really know what they are doing, they work great together as a team, and are extremely patient when you are anxious! :) The moment you start your day they are there to help you with bustling your dress as you walk down the aisle and coordinating the bridesmaids and groomsmen to walk out for the ceremony. By having them their it really made things flow so nicely.. The drinks are delicious and food is awesome.. By having a wedding here you do not have to worry about if the staff is new or not- the food all came out at once, and the cake was sliced and serve timely. It was a pleasure to have our wedding here!

Our reception turned out great. It is such a beautiful venue, that you really don't have to do much with decorations to make it look nice. I also thought the service and food were great. It is very elegant. I thought they took great care of us as a wedding party and made sure we had drinks and appetizers while we took pictures and waited to make our entrance. The balcony is a great feature. There are also a lot of great spots for taking pictures. Everything ran very smoothly. Some of our guests arrived early to the reception and they quickly accommodated them by setting up an extra bar.

The hall is gorgeous and reasonably priced. You are required to use their catering though. The catering was probably average priced. The food was very tasty. Like with all events, a few things went wrong. We were supposed to have open bar, and in the beginning they were charging guests for drinks. As soon as we spoke to Sarah, she fixed it and credited the cash guests spent to our bill. We felt bad for our guests though. Miscommunication I guess. Everything was set up beautifully. One table out of the 20-something tables didn't have favors.... Other than those small mistakes... It was lovely.

We had our Reception Only here. What an Extraordinary location. The beautiful entrance when coming up the front drive to the view in the back. Amazing green grass with beautiful flowers. We got a great shot coming down the spiral staircase at sunset!
The ballroom was so elegant and we added some special lighting to make it even better!
The food we choose was perfect except for one minor detail. I wanted our salad to be tomato and mozzarella, sliced, with balsamic vinaigrette. They kind of skimped on that and added lettuce to the plate. It was not what we had at the tasting, but everything else made up for it. Otherwise I couldn't have asked for a prettier place!
