Shaker Run Golf Club, located in beautiful Lebanon, Ohio, is a public facility offering outdoor ceremony sites and two beautiful reception rooms. With a less than 10 minute drive we are easily accessible to both I-71 and I-75. Shaker Run was recently nominated “Best of Pick for 2010” by The Knot for our excellence in service, culinary expertise and competitive prices as voted by our 2009 brides and grooms.

Our Lakeside Patio ceremony site sits alongside our 135-acre lake and accommodates 250 guests. Comfortably shaded under our lush trees, guests sit on our bi-level patio to watch as the Bride approaches from our unique stepping stone path. Coming soon, we will have a second outdoor site providing the Bride and Groom the opportunity to exchange vows along the water’s edge. For those couples who want the outdoor wedding but not the worry of cooperating weather, our Pavilion is perfect. It is set on a small peninsula and is fully enclosed with full windows on three sides offering a beautiful view of the lake and golf course. Our ceremony sites are only available to those couples booking their reception at Shaker Run Golf Club.

The Pavilion is a beautiful location to host either a ceremony or reception, able to seat 300 theatre style for ceremonies or 150 for a reception. Guests will also be delighted by our exquisite ballroom reception area. Our Grand Ballroom seats up to 325 comfortably for a reception and offers a spectacular panoramic view of the golf course and our lake. Both the Pavilion and Grand Ballroom invite guests to be a part of the beautiful scenery with their decks that face the lake and rod iron furniture. Both rooms also offer dance floors available at no additional cost. Our packages offer a wide variety of delicious culinary selections including hors d’oeuvres, buffet and plated dinner receptions.

The grounds of Shaker Run Golf Club, most notably our rustic bridge, offer unique and creative photo opportunities for your special day. Our experienced wedding planner will share in the enthusiasm for your wedding day and guide you every step of the way. Whether you are hosting an intimate gathering or extravagant reception, you’ll find the ideal location at Shaker Run Golf Club. Read less

I had a great experience with my wedding coordinator, but everything went downhill the day of the wedding. The list of things that didn't go according to plan is long, but the most significant was no air conditioning at the wedding reception. The temperature reached 80 degrees and only one fan was brought in to cool down the guests. After repeatedly being told that there was no air they would never acknowledge the fact. After reporting my displeasure the week after my wedding they finally said that the A/C unit had frozen over.
I asked for some compensation for the problems with the A/C and other items that didn't go correctly. The manager of the golf club agreed to reimburse me but 2 months after my wedding I have yet to receive a check. I have contacted the manager and for some reason he is conveniently never around. I have lost count how many times I have called and left emails with no response.
I must tell you that my wedding planner was fabulous, but for some reason two weeks after my wedding she was let go for now apparent reason. So, be very aware that the management of the golf club has been unresponsive and unwilling to deal with my grievances. I couldn't believe they let the wedding planner go, she was awesome and did absolutely nothing wrong. She went over and above to try and assist me in getting my grievances taken care of.
I need to tell you one other item that was extremely disturbing to me. My wedding cake was placed in the hot ballroom in a sunlight area of the room. Needless to say, my cake pretty much melted. They had to piece it together with straws. We had to move up the cake cutting so the cake wouldn't fall into pieces before we did the cake cutting. The top of the cake was to be taken off the cake and saved for us. They placed the cake on the gift table with nobody being notified and it was thrown in with all the presents. Guess what? My cake for my first anniversary was in crumbs.
Be careful in your dealing with them!

We just wanted to express our gratitude and thanks to you, Sherri, Olivia and ALL of your staff at Shaker Run for the tremendous job that was done to make our wedding day so special. With the last minute shuffle due to the threatening weather that rolled in an hour before our ceremony was scheduled to start, no one really noticed the shift. The food was absolutely magnificent and we have had many compliments on how delicious it was. All of the work leading up to the event and help with the planning was just over the top. Sherri has the knowledge and professionalism that anyone could want in order to create and plan the perfect wedding. During our wedding ceremony and the reception afterwards the staff was so warm and attentive. it was truly an amazing experience. When we recapped the event yesterday we couldn't think of one thing that could have been done differently. We highly recommend Shaker Run to anyone considering a place to have their wedding or looking to host any other event with such a professional staff, beautiful scenery and a lot of amenities to make your special event one to remember

Shaker Run was a beautiful venue to hold my ceremony and reception. From the time that I booked unfortunately through different circumstances I was passed along to different planners and finally was introduced to Sherri Cornell. The planning prior to the wedding was extremely easy and things that I was promised previously from the other planners were fulfilled. My family still talks about how great the food was and how kind the staff was. I would recommend this venue to anyone planning their special event!

Please note all previous reviews were of the course under previous ownership. I could write pages and pages about the lies Julie Gutzwiller(sales person) and Steve Lambert(new owner) told us. On the day of our wedding, every single detail was screwed up and I even watched Julie taker her phone out and send me to her voicemail. They did reimburse us our money for the ceremony, which is good since they did not nothing, so I have to rate the value as good. I honestly would have rather had my wedding in my backyard. My dad has since decided to not buy a house in the neighborhood due to their complete lack of professionalism and service. I really hope the new owner gets things in order soon or this whole course will fail miserably. DO NOT USE JULIE GUTZWILLER

Our relationship with Shaker Run started out perfect. We were able to get everything to done in a timely manner, I received callbacks from our rep as soon as she could get back to us, and I was able to get a hold of her when needed. However about a week before the wedding things went sour. I could no longer get in touch with our rep, I had questions that needed answered but I couldn't get the manager on the phone, and I needed to arrange payment options. The day of the wedding I saw my rep once and never saw her again, even after the wedding. I cannot get in touch with them to PAY THE BILL even. They were supposed to set up the bows on the back of the chairs but did not. I honestly lost faith in them that last week.

The positives were the food was set up and brought out exactly when we needed it. The man who was assigned to help us out during the wedding (I cannot remember his name but he had an accent and short hair) did a GREAT job making sure the reception went well. Also, I liked not having to clean up. The venue was also beautiful. Thats about it. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless you discuss with your rep that they need to be there. It really is a beautiful place but the service ruined it.

My overall experience with Shaker Run was outstanding and exceeded my expectations. Upon first seeing the venue, I never thought I would be able to afford such a beautiful place because I was on a tight budget. However, Julie worked with me to find a fabulous package that worked with the budget. I got countless compliments on how good the food was, the view was amazing, and the staff was tremendous. I wouldn't change anything - it was a flawless experience.

Wow, Jill your fast! Thank you so much for your review! Venues for receptions or rehearsal dinners are among the first items booked by Brides and Grooms, which makes it hard for us to depend on referrals from other vendors we work with. I appreciate the time you took to help us.

Shaker Run staff did everything possible to make sure we had everything we needed, and the catering staff did an excellent job, from tearing down chairs and chair covers that they weren't even required to do, to preparing a delicious meal that everyone raved over. If I had to do my wedding all over again, I would definitely choose to use Shaker Run.

We had our daughter's wedding at Shaker Run in May 2010. The ceremony was an outdoor event with the grand ballroom for the reception. The setting for both of these events was outstanding! We had many compliments on how beautiful everything looked. We really were pleased with the planning and how accomodating the staff was for all of our requests. The food was really good and the wait staff was exceptional. We had guests that had an emergency and had to leave and returned later; the staff put a meal together for them and reheated it when they were able to return. That's above and beyond! We would highly recommend Shaker Run to anyone who asks; the money spent was well worth the cost for the wonderful, beautiful setting and attention to detail.
