Beautiful location and photo ops. Krystal was especially pleasant to work with. If you are intimidated by or don't want to do a lot of planning yourself, this is a great venue to choose. They really help with everything along the way, and many things are included that other vendors might not include, like the cake and centerpieces. They're also very flexible and willing to help make your unique ideas work.
An unexpected benefit of this vendor was the delicious food. We got so many compliments on it, and we chose one of the cheapest meal options!
Overall, wonderful. No complaints.

I could not be happier with my decision to have our wedding at Makray. From the planning to the day of, everything was perfect. We worked primarily with Krystal. Krystal was attentive to details, responded to all of my questions very quickly, and was so pleasant to work with. Krystal and Laurie were also there the day of to make sure everything ran smoothly. We would recommend this venue to any brides looking for a unique, romantic, and perfect wedding!

My husband and I got married on July 19, 2013 at Makray Memorial Golf Club. From the day we walked into Makray we both knew that this was the place we wanted to get married. It was incredible inside and out! We began working with Krystal and Laurie, and they were such a tremendous help right up to the time we were married.

As a bride I was worried about everything being perfect. Krystal and Laurie made sure that it was. They took so much of the stress off of me the days leading up to the wedding and the wedding day itself.

On the day of the wedding the entire Makray staff was amazing. Everyone was so nice and helpful and our wedding turned out absolutely perfect. It couldn't have been better! All of our guest commented on how beautiful the venue and grounds were. Most importantly, they all loved the food! Everything that we ate was amazing and the chefs did an incredible job with the plating.

We would recommend Makray to anyone thinking of getting married as they truly made our special day "perfect"!

My daughter recently had her wedding at Makray on June 15. It was a wonderful event. Every staff member was extremely helpful in planning her wedding. They were patient with all of our special requests and offered suggestions to help make the evening very special. The entire eveing went very smoothly. By the time the reception was over, they had packed all of the items we brought and had them ready to placed in our car.

Makray was the first venue we looked at and we knew instantly it was everything we wanted for our wedding. The staff was very professional and accommodating and truly went above and beyond to make our wedding a day to remember. Laurie was our primary coordinator and did a great job at helping us pull together every little detail. She was very organized and was flexible in meeting all of our requests. The food was hands down the best wedding food I have ever had and we received many complements on it from our guests. The chef did a great job at suggesting menu pairings and the choices for entrees, sides, salads and soups were all so good we had a really hard time deciding which to serve. The banquet room is beautiful and offers gorgeous views of the course and having the patio available to guests was a plus. It's great that you are the only wedding on any given night so you are not having to compete or worry about other peoples' guests, or music that is interfering, etc. My parents showed up to the reception early to check that everything was in order before guests and the bridal party arrived only to find that Makray had carried out every single detail to perfection. The wait staff the night of the wedding was very professional and accommodating as well. Needless to say we didn't worry about a SINGLE thing the entire night; we felt we were taken care of exceptionally well and we had the utmost trust in the staff to pull everything off flawlessly. I would highly recommend Makray!

First off if you are looking for great food for your wedding, this is the place! We had wonderful tasting food at Makray, not the typical wedding banquet food. Our menu was salmon and brandy flavored sauce on pork loin. It was great and the tasting they set up with you before the wedding was fantastic. So intimate and personal and each person at your tasting gets one whole plate of food. They will even customize the bride and grooms order to whatever you like! The wedding coordinators were so helpful there and accommodated everything. I made a lot of stuff for the reception of our wedding and they set it up great. The atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. You get the whole 2nd floor to yourself no other wedding next to you. Beautiful places to take pictures on the golf course.

Having our wedding reception at Makray was one of the best decisions my husband and I made. I honestly cannot express how perfect everything came together and how incredibly helpful Laurie and Krystal and the staff at Makray were in making sure that our wedding reception was exactly the way we imagined. They were so great to work with leading up to the wedding and were very responsive to email. We brought a lot of our own decorations and they were great in getting everything set up exactly the way we wanted - we also had paper lanterns hung up over the dance floor and we were very happy with how the display turned out! If Makray is available for your wedding day, I can't recommend them enough! The location, the food, the service, the coordinators, the flexibility - everything was just perfect!

My daughter and her "New" husband had a wonderful wedding at Makray and I can't say enough great things about this place. From beginning to end, the staff were very helpful, responsive to special requests and made every part of the wedding and reception absolutely perfect.
They accommodated our florist that came the day before to prepare flowers.The day of the wedding, the Makray staff was outside 3 hours before picking up every bit of debris from the grounds on a cold March afternoon. The food, and drinks were delicious and service was tremendous. Afterwards the staff even helped pack all of our personal decor items away for us too.
This is such a beautiful space and the level of quality is easily worth much more than it costs. We would not ever hesitate to recommend Makray.

I can't say enough great things about Makray! I can't even imagine having our reception any where else. They were so easy to work with and fast at responding to every email! Several of our guests told us that our food was the BEST wedding food they had ever had...and I have to agree! Since several of our guests ordered vegetarian, (and my husband and I are vegetarian) it was very important to us that we have a great vegetarian option...and we definitely did! The chef at Makray is the best! Like I said, everyone at Makray was incredibly easy to work with...they were incredibly accommodating!

Probably our most memorable part of the night is when a golfer on the course decided to scream at us while we were taking our pictures because we interrupted his golf game...the man said some of the most vulgar and disgusting things I have ever heard anyone say, but Makray handled it very well. They immediately apologized and kicked the man out. They also told us that the man was never allowed to come back to Makray ever. In retrospect, our wedding party thought the whole thing was really funny, and of course, that wasn't Makray's fault, but they handled it incredibly well...they also told us that nothing like that had ever happened before!

Overall, I can't say enough great things about Makray! Krystal and Laurie in the sales department are both amazing! The food is absolutely amazing! And of course the venue could not be more beautiful! We received several compliments on how beautiful the venue was!
