We had a perfect wedding at this extremely beautiful venue. Everything was so personable from the venue tour to the taste testing visits to the cocktail hour. The setting was amazing and our coordinator Kerri Hollister really did as best she could to make sure everything went smooth. Despite going through 3 different wedding coordinators we can really say that third times the charm with Kerri. All of the staff was friendly in an efficient non-invasive way. Thank you so much for the wonderful memories!!

Hi Alyson,

It is SO great to hear the words "perfect wedding" because that is what me and my staff strive for! Even though we have several weddings a year, we want you to feel like you are the only one!

You looked absolutely stunning on your wedding day (I saw the look in the groom's eyes...GAWK) and I hope you have a lifetime of happiness :)

Sincerely,
Kerri

Kerri Hollister, the events director, goes above and beyond. She attends to details and follows through seemlessly. Kerri has very good taste when it comes to setting up your wedding accessories. We are grateful that Kerri was a part of our extraordinary wedding experience at Starfire. The food was delcious and the service was great. The reception room looked elegant as we made our grand entrance.
We chose Starfire for the openness and beautiful surroundings. It felt as if we were entertaining our guests in our home on a golf course.

I highly recommend Starfire for a beautiful wedding ceremony and/or reception. It was everything we could have hoped for--a gorgeous and photogenic setting, great food and drinks, and top-notch service, all without breaking the bank. The coordinator helped us plan everything and saw that the rehearsal and ceremony ran smoothly by providing a detailed timeline, cues for the wedding party, suggestions for procession order, etc. Her services were included in the facility fees, so we did not know how much to expect, and were very relieved that she took care of the details so we did not have to figure it all out. The buffet dinner and cake were excellent. We had just under 100 people and everyone had a wonderful time. The settings for our outdoor photos (golf carts provided to transport wedding party to a variety of locations) were so beautiful that the pictures almost look fake! We had a few children in attendance and they were able to run around on the lawns just outside of the clubhouse during the reception. It was all just what we were looking for and our special day was pure enjoyment.

I had my wedding at Starfire last month and it was perfect and beautiful. Kerri and the Starfire staff made my day to be exactly how I always wanted - down to every little detail. They also took care of all of the little pain-in-the-butt things like setting up the centerpieces and decorations. Kerri pays so much attention to detail and she removed a great amount of stress from me throughout the whole planning process. Nothing went wrong on my big day and I have no complaints about this beautiful venue and wonderful staff.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Starfire. The ceremony was held outside and we had several outdoor locations to choose from. Our dinner was also held outside on the lawn. The food and the service were excellent. My family had nothing but good things to say about the dinner. Jill was great to work with and she was very easy to get ahold of and made the whole day run really smoothly. The staff were all friendly and anytime I stopped in to the country club they made me feel welcome.

Starfire was a great pick for our wedding. We worked with Jill and she was very helpful with everything we needed. She helped us keep everything in order and made some great recommendations to the many questions we had come up during the planning process. Their menu choices were great and I am still getting compliments on how delicious the food was. The staff was very friendly and helpful to our guests, making sure they had everything they needed. There is plenty of parking available and we were even allowed to use a couple golf carts to help get some elderly family members to the ceremony without them having to walk all the way. I would highly recommend Starfire to brides looking for a venue in Scottsdale.

The first time I laid eyes on Starfire I knew it was going to be a perfect place for our special day. Sandy and the other staff there were so helpful and friendly. They took care of all the planning and guided us through our choices for everything. When the day came, it couldn't have gone better. It is obvious that the people at Starfire are professionals and cared about our event as much as we did. The prices were reasonable and the food was awesome. I'd recommend Starfire to anyone looking for a great place for any event!

From the beginning the staff at Starfire was great. There was a staff change about 3 months prior to my wedding. New special events coordinators are Shane and Sandy. Shane is new to Starfire but Sandy has been there for over 9 years. Shane was flexible and easy to work with. He really accommodated my every request, even if it was a hassle for him. Sandy knows a lot about the course and the country club. She is a great resource. Another employee who deserves mention is Russ. He, like Sandy, has been around Starfire for many years. He knows the in’s and out’s of banquets and can answer any questions. He does it all from set up, manning the bar and closing everything down. All in all, every employee was great. I got complements all night on how nice they were and how hard they worked to make the night amazing for the guests. I also received a lot of compliments on the food. Truly a hidden gem!

I can not write enough good reviews about this place! The event coordinator, Brooke, was the main reason why we selected this spot for our wedding/reception. Brooke was so down-to-earth, friendly and professional that she completely set our mind at ease. She had great ideas about the ceremony decorations, reception menu and decorations.. she was absolutely wonderful! Our wait-staff for the reception were perfect also. They were so sweet and attentive, we absolutely adored the entire place! Brooke, you are amazing, thank you so much!!

Brooke at Starfire Country Club was so awesome to work with! She was very responsive with emails and phone calls, answered all my questions, and was always welcoming whenever I wanted to come in and meet with her in person. Brooke and her staff were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed during the planning process and on the night of our event. The country club itself is beautiful with tons of different spots for pictures and worked out perfectly for my wedding. The best thing of all was the food! I received so many compliments on the food from my guests. I am so glad we found Starfire at Scottsdale Country Club and would recommend it to anyone.

Working with Brooke Ertle at Starfire was the best decision we made regarding wedding planning. She is not only professional, she is also a creative resource. She used her experience to guide our decisions as needed, but wasn't afraid to try new things--such as streaming our ceremony online.
Starfire it self is a lovely venue and we had great interactions with all the staff. The are priced very competitively, with minimums far below hotels. The food was delicious. Our photographer told us later that it was the best wedding food she had ever eaten. They worked with me to come up with a buffet that was acceptable to a vegetarian bride and meat-loving groom. They were happy to provide a second tasting to make sure the sauce for the meat was just right. We also had a cocktail tasting and Brooke helped us create our signature cocktail for the day. My family loved it so much we came back for an Easter brunch.

I recently had my wedding at Starfire and it was absolutely perfect! The ceremony was outside on the green timed as the sun set. Following the ceremony was an out-door cocktail reception for the guests with passed hors d'oeuvres made by the chef in house. We offered Prosciutto wrapped, bleu cheese stuffed dates, broiled in the oven, Grilled tomato bruschetta w/ balsamic glaze, and Seasonal vegetable flatbread: butternut squash and arugula.

During this cocktail hour for the guests, my groom and I hopped on a golf cart and headed to our own private champagne toast. There was a table by a small lake lit by candle light set up away from all the guests so we could have a quiet moment together. There was a chilled bottle of champagne, a cheese and fruit plate, and a few of all the hors d'oeuvres offered to the rest of the guests ready for us there. This was one of my favorite parts of the night!

After the cocktail hour, we joined the guests for the reception dinner on the back patio of the grille. The tables were set out on the lawn with all the trees wrapped in white lights. The band fit perfectly on the patio, and there was even room for our ice-cream vendor to set up.

Since the entire wedding took place outside, we offered an indoor room for the child-care room. The kiddo-s were able to do crafts, watch movies, and then join us later in the evening for music, dancing (and ice cream and cake!).

I would definitely recommend this venue to other brides looking for a beautiful out-door space that was more than accommodating to our requests!

I also booked with one coordinator and had a change of staff about 3 months before the wedding. I wasn't contacted to let me know and had been sending emails to the old coordinator and wondering why I had not received a note back. That was a little frustrating. I met with Sandy after that fact and she was great very helpful and very attentive even after multiple email questions. The day of everything turned out beautifully. I hate wedding food but the food was wonderful at Starfire and I really wish that I had bought a bigger dress so I could have eaten more of it. Sandy was great at making us feel so special and making sure that we had plates of food when we had time to eat and our drinks were never empty. There was a little bit of a mix up at the beginning with not having enough staff at the bar and a missing golf cart but it all worked out in the end. THERE IS NOT A BETTER COUNTRY CLUB RECEPTION SITE FOR THE MONEY HANDS DOWN!! I am so excited to see how the pictures ended up but it was absolutely beautiful!

Starfire was a beautiful venue for our wedding. We were married outside on the course, and I was so happy with it! It didn't look like a golf course at all, with beautiful trees all around and hills and a pretty little pond. They had all the amenities you could need, and because my husband and I were married quickly (thanks, Army), we needed every bit of help we could get. In the end, I didn't have to worry about the cake, the servers, the tableware, the champagne, the food, the cake, the ceremony space. It was great! The food was great, and I loved all the tips that they had for us with setup and the flow of the wedding. Great venue and completely worth every little penny!

Starfire was so great to work with, Jill was so easy to work with and very accommodating. The ceremony areas are beautiful and the food was way beyond my expectations and in no way typical "wedding food". We had our reception outside on the patio/grass area. I would suggest more lighting, it was pretty dark and the food took quite a long time to come out but otherwise, everything was perfect!

Starfire Golf Club responded with the following comments:

Thank you for positive feedback along with the corrective suggestions. We are glad we met and exceeded your expectations! We have already corrected the lighting issues outside so thank you for the suggestion.
We appologize for any delay you may have felt on the food. We ensure that all of our food is cooked fresh and not stored in the hot box providing the best quality to our guests. We will however review our food service to determine if a faster method is available. Congratulations and Best Wishes!!

Starfire is a beautiful venue and GREAT value! Unfortunately, the venue coordinator left and we were not informed of this and found out a few months before the wedding. While were upset by this, the replacement, Carrie, was definitely an upgrade! The food and set-up was exactly as discussed and she was very helpful during the ceremony. There were some difficulties with a few things (coordinator hard to locate prior to ceremony, credit card charge issue), but they were resolved and handled well. Nothing goes perfectly when it comes to a wedding!

I chose Starfire Golf Club because I wanted my ceremony on a lush green golf course rather than in a sterile indoor setting. I also liked the architecture of the clubhouse because it was not too southwestern-- more classical and traditional for someone who grew up East of the Mississippi. I also like that the club had high quality dark wood chairs for the reception-- rather than standard (ugly) banquet chairs. (I didn't like the slipcovered look and I didn't want to spend an extra $12 per person to rent a nice chair.) Also, it was nice that they had linens to choose from, and resources to take care of getting me a dance floor and grand piano. There was no food and beverage minimum which was nice considering you do not know exactly how many people will be coming (I had 120) and I didn't want to committ to other resort ballroom minimums of $15,000, if we weren't even going to consume that much. In addition, the food and beverage prices were very competetive; I got all the cheese, fruit, veggies, shrimp cocktail, beef wellington, plus maincourse with a choice of carved roast beef, chicken and/or salmon, wine, and drinks PLUS a next-day breakfast for probably the same price or lesser price than the $15,000 it would have cost me for just the reception food.
Now, on to the disappointments: after my initial sit-down with the coordinator at the facility, I called to ask a question, only to find out that he "was no longer with them." Nobody contacted me, I had to find this all out on my own and arrange to re-explain all of my expectations to the new guy. On the day of our rehearsal, the chairs were NOT set up which made me VERY nervous for the rest of the wedding-- whether it would all come together or not. Besides that, only a couple of other things bothered me after the big day. Firstly, I remembered that I had ordered grilled vegetables and they did not serve them. Hindsight, that is sort of embarrassing if people think I planned a meal w/o veggies, although the salad was really yummy, so maybe nobody noticed. Also, I am not a buffet expert, but shouldn't there have been a separate salad plate? I'm not sure how the hors d'ouvres were because by the time I was done with pictures, mine were cold, but I asked a few people and they said they were good (not sure if they were just being polite). Secondly, hindsight, it would have been nice to have the blinds raised since part of my tables were outside. I think it would have made the group more unified, but again, I didn't think of it until I got my pictures back.
If I had done it all over, I would NOT have done much differently; I still would have chosen the venue, but perhaps hired my own coordinator to worry that day so I didn't have to. I think the people in charge over there are experts in their field, but not super detail-oriented.
