We had our ceremony and reception at OLd South and it was AWESOME! We worked with Lara throughout the process and she was fantastic! From our first meeting until the end of the reception she was always available for us and made our wedding day so memorable. The golf course is beautiful and the food was excellent. We had the time of our lives and will never forget how wonderful the club and the staff was. I highly recommend this venue!

Old South Country Club made for a dream wedding! My husband and I were married this past Saturday and we had the best wedding! Lara Goldstein is the coordinator at the club and she is PHENOMINAL! The tasting was fabulous, it was impossible to choose just one thing so we had two stationary appetizers (the world's BEST spinach dip, and veggies and cheese), and three passed apps - brie and fruit tarts, mini chicken cordon bleu (which my guests can't stop talking about), and mini crab cakes. There were pre-poured wine glasses in the oak room and the hunt room immediately when guests walked in. The service was amazing - the food was hot and everything was on time and ran smoothly. I cannot say enough about Lara - she is on top of everything! She even reserved our wedding night suite for us at the Maryland Inn. She checked in with us almost every day via e-mail and took care of all the linens and a lot of the decorating details. We were able to come in and decorate at the club two days before our event, and Lara was there to help the whole time. The club let us customize everything we asked for - including hanging garlands on the bannisters (the grand staircase made an amazing photo backdrop for us and our 26 person wedding party!) We used the entire first floor for cocktail hour, and then set up a photo booth down there during the reception. The top floor was decorated flawlessly. It was a DREAM COME TRUE. Both balconies (front and back) were used during the wedding for people to take a breather outside and cool down. It was raining all night and you would have never known - everything was PERFECT anyway! We hired buses to bring our guests to and from the club, the club offers ample parking but we were coming all the way from Annapolis and thought it would be easier. It was a great idea and Lara helped us arrange everthing. We had chicken Chesapeake and beef medallions for dinner - the plates were HUGE. and the champagne glasses for the toast were filled to the brim!

The location is absolutely GORGEOUS. We had our ceremony on the Veranda, cocktail hour in the Oak Room and the reception under the tent. Danny Dunne handled all the logistics and I never had to follow up or chase anyone down. The weekend ran seamless and all the guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. My mother (MOB) was extremely impressed with how professional and accommodating the staff was that day. Old South, and Danny especially, made my wedding day dreams come true. I can't express how happy I am with choosing this place for such a special time.

I lived in Florida during my planning process and was able to communicate all questions, concerns and requests via email/phone. Please do not hesitate to set up a consultation or contact Old South for a quote or any questions you may have. Happy Planning :)

The Old South Country Club is beautiful inside and out! All of the staff were accommodating and so pleasant! Cati Mitchell is absolutely amazing to work with! She is so sweet and helpful! Cati made sure that everything was done just how I wanted it and was so flexible in allowing me to bring things to the venue. She was always available to answer all of my questions and could be contacted via email or phone. The food was absolutely delicious! We served prime rib and chicken chesapeake. The prime rib was so tender and had very little fat. YUM!

After touring several suburban DC venues, Old South knocked it out of the park. They were the first venue I visited, and nothing else ever compared. Fall weddings are especially beautiful here. There were a few snags in the planning process (mainly staff turnover), but I would not have changed the venue. This place made my wedding.

Perks:
-Allows lots of set up time
-The catering pricing includes an open bar! Very affordable
-The club has space for a ceremony, a cocktail hour, and a reception, so no need for transportation; also has a bridal suite, a make up room, a room for gifts/guestbook, coats, etc
-A stunningly beautiful but also modern building that is well-maintained
-The grounds also provide lots of photo ops
-Only one wedding per day
-Very reasonable site fee/room rental
-Food was pretty good, we got a lot of it
-If you want an outdoor ceremony but don't want to worry about rain, they have a beautiful veranda overlooking the golf course that has a (free) large tent in place from spring to fall

Cons:
-I had a long engagement and booked this venue roughly 1.5 years out; this resulted in three different catering managers during my relationship with the club. Staff turnover is a huge problem
-The permanent dance floor in the ballroom is a tad small, so if you're planning on having a big dance party, people will wind up on the carpet, but then again, you don't have to pay for it
-A word of caution about the tent: it's not the prettiest thing on the underside, but I was quoted $2,000 to drape it.... I decided in the end that no one would remember the tent from out 5 minute ceremony and that I should spend the money elsewhere, but just something to think about
-I recommend hiring a day-of coordinator, even if it is your OCD problem-solving friend who likes to organize things

Overall, Old South was great. They only do one wedding a day, so that's nice. We could use the building any time we wanted. It was private- golfers on the course, but you could hardly tell and no one came up into the private space. You have to see to understand. For the wedding day, they did a good job serving everyone and keeping the bar moving. It was very nice. The grounds were also well-upkept, freshly painted and cleaned. Bridal suite was beautiful!

Downsides were- the turnover with the Catering Manager made communications difficult for awhile. The catering manager we ended up with- Diva Lynch, also made calculation errors and tried to blame everyone for it (she still owes us like $40). I rated value a little low because I didn't like having to pay for alcohol and the meal together, for kids and non-drinkers it felt priced too high.

Old South was a beautiful location for our wedding. They were extremely flexible as we changed our mind several times. On the day of the wedding the coordinator had everything under control and greeted us with confidence and smiles. We ran a little late but the staff members pulled it off with class. We were very happy with this location and loved the backdrop it gave for our pictures. Definitely would recommend the site to another couple.... gotta try the crab cakes!

Old South is a beautiful venue with a picturesque backdrop. Our wedding was a few weeks ago and the fall foliage was absolutely beautiful. The only downfall was the Old South clearly has some personnel issues. Our point of contact changed 5 times from the time we made our deposit. The latest point of contact was brought on one week before our wedding and attempted to alter some of the details we had already worked out with previous staff. Quite a few things became lost in translation due to the changes, but our awesome wedding coordinator was able handle those issues for us.
