I had my reception at MacGregor and the event staff could not have been more accomadating to everyones' needs. The food was fabulous! Lots of room for dancing. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. Linda was a dream to work with and kept the reception activities moving along at an appropriate pace. (You can get caught up in all the excitement and she's there to help.)

My husband and I really wanted an outdoor ceremony for our November wedding but didn't want to worry about the possibility of rain. MacGregor Downs offered the perfect compromise by offering the use of a clear-top tent; the weather was gorgeous and the tent worked out beautifully! Another plus was the fact that all taxes and fees were included - there were absolutely no hidden costs! They offered two different chair options to choose from, as well as multiple table sizes, linens and candles for centerpieces. The venue itself is gorgeous - it has beautiful hardwood floors and the lakeside room has huge windows that provide a breathtaking view of the lake! The food was absolutely delicious, and the chef kindly adjusted the menu for my father and me so that we could have sweet potato with our dinner! We met with Linda, the manager/coordinator, and immediately felt relieved; she explained how flexible they are with everything, and took the time to walk us through a "day of schedule" and how it could be adjusted to fit our needs. Linda was a huge help throughout the entire planning process, and I don't think I could have managed any of this without her. On our big day, Linda made sure everything was taken care of; we didn't have to worry about anything other than enjoying our moment. We couldn't have been happier with the way everything turned out; the people we worked with were truly amazing and made our day a huge success! We would definitely recommend MacGregor Downs Country Club to anybody in need of a wedding venue! Linda, thank you for keeping me sane throughout this whole process and making sure our day ran smoothly! You're the best!!!

We really wanted an indoor venue that wasn't too stuffy for our May wedding, and after searching far & wide, we found MacGregor Downs Country Club. The most appealing thing about it initially is that unlike other Country Clubs, they did not charge a "Taxable Service Fee" of 22%, All taxes and fees were included - there were no hidden costs at all! We met with their coordinator and were pleasantly surprised by how nice and welcoming they were. They made a point of making us aware of their flexibility with EVERYTHING, and they were very thorough explaining how they normally run weddings, again noting things that could be tailored to our liking. The venue is gorgeous - it has a lodge feel on the inside, with beautiful exposed beams and hardwoods. The windows are huge and really bring the outdoors inside. The dining room overlooking the lake was our favorite part - it was absolutely breathtaking! The team there was great at communicating by phone and e-mail, and were fine with us stopping by whenever we had anything to discuss with them. The food was amazing, and the chef kindly altered the menu slightly for specific allergy concerns for our guests. Linda, the manager, was outstanding at making sure everything was planned out before our big day, down to the little details. On the day of, they took care of everything. I mean... everything! We did not have to worry about anything at all - it was stunningly beautiful and completely stress free. They have add-ons available such as draping for the outdoor ceremony tent, special linens, etc, but we decided against them. With everything that came standard, our ceremony and reception were still so beautiful. It didn't feel like anything was missing, because it wasn't! We didn't have the stress of renting tables, chairs, etc from some company - they took care of everything. We couldn't be more satisfied with the venue itself and the truly wonderful service we received. We would recommend this venue to everyone!

My wedding was in October 2013 and things have been crazy, so I am just now writing this review. We had a lot of family coming from out of town so we knew we wanted the ceremony and reception to be at the same venue. There is a brick pavilion outside looking over the golf course where we had our ceremony and our dance floor (they flipped it during dinner), then we had the dinner inside the main dining room. It was a beautiful setting and the staff was fantastic. We had one miscommunication when Elizabeth went out of maternity leave and Brooke took over, but it was resolved beyond our expectations. We had a tasting before the wedding and the food was great. We were concerned about them trying to make it in large quantities, but on the wedding day it was still fantastic. Wedding days can be stressful, but Brooke handled everything perfectly and we could not have had a better night.

The club is very rustic and charming with all of the exposed wood beams, hardwood floors in the main dining room and large stone fireplace overlooking the golf course (everything we were looking for). Everyone at MacGregor Downs was great and provided wonderful service. Our wedding turned out to be amazing and a day we will always remember. After the ceremony the club broke down ceremony in the tent during cocktail hour to make it a beautiful backdrop for our dinner within 45 minutes. The food was wonderful, all the guests raved about it (especially the mashpotini bar). Elizabeth and her staff were very accommodating and wanted to make sure our day turned out to be everything we dreamed of. At the end of the night the club also pulled off a beautiful sparkler send off for my Husband and I. We even had our day after the wedding brunch at the club and that was great too! We would highly recommend using this venue for you wedding!

Elizabeth and everyone at MacGregor were wonderful to work with! They made everything so stress-free. I was a little concerned because we had to change our reception venue last minute, and I hadn't heard much about receptions at MacGregor Downs. Everything turned out to be beautiful though! We also realized last minute that we had about 60 more people coming than we had initially expected. Elizabeth did everything she could to change around the setup for dinner and make sure everyone could fit inside for dinner!

The new staff at MacGregor Downs is awesome!! They went above and beyond to make our day perfect! Before Elizabeth, things seemed unorganized, non responsive, and were wondering if our wedding was going to be everything we were hoping for. Elizabeth was super organized, never had to wait long for any response, and made our dreams come true! We couldn't have asked for a better staff! The day of the wedding was perfect and we were treated like royalty. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day perfect!

They were a little tight on flexibility at times, but with some pushing they worked it out in our favor. Beautiful setting for a fall wedding!! We are very happy that we chose MacGregor Downs Country club as our venue. The food is AMAZING!!! Lovely lovely place!

Makeda Pride was very helpful and insightful with her expertise. Wonderful staff!
