Beautiful golf course. Ask ahead of time if their is a function before you book this venue. If I had known there was a golf banquet being held so close to when our reception was starting , I would have picked another date. Our florist, who was delivering our centerpieces, had to wait in the parking lot longer than expected because the golf banquet ran over. Which also caused my wedding planner to not have ample time to review the room before the reception started.

The food was awesome, but the appetizers were provided to our guests 30 minutes late.

Overall wonderful experience that exceeded expectations! Everything turned out beautifully for our wedding, from the linens which were arranged through the venue to the set up that was customized to our preferences. Nicole was wonderful about responding to emails and to making sure that everything was how we wanted it to be. The food was excellent and our food-loving guests were impressed. Nicole was also great at helping to do a lot of the coordinating on the day of to make sure everything was perfect and flowed smoothly. We had one minor hiccup with the late night pizza but it was handled and taken care of so that we (the bride and groom) didn't even realize it happened until the next day. I would highly recommend this venue!

First of all, I saw an old review saying that the event coordinator was impossible to work with, so I wanted to say that they have a NEW wedding coordinator (Nicole) who is wonderful! The venue is beautiful with lots of places for beautiful pictures. We got married in their gazebo by the water. The weather was awful (50 degrees and raining), but it was still pretty. The banquet room is very pretty with lots of windows that look out over the water and the golf course. The food was delicious! We went with a "family style" dinner with their salmon and stuff chicken. Amazing! The dance floor is large, which is good. And the woman who tended bar during the reception was fantastic.
The biggest thing for me was the work that Nicole and her team put into making the day great for us. I wasn't able to set up my decorations myself because they had a luncheon that day, which made me super nervous. That was something I really wanted to do myself. I told Nicole how I wanted things set up, and she did an AMAZING job. She even went so far as to add some extra lanterns and things that fit my decor. I was very, very happy with everything.

I had my wedding ceremony and reception here.

Positives:
The ceremony site was very picturesque.The hall is beautiful! It doesn't need many decorations at all. There is also a great balcony off the hall with small tables that is a great addition and has a beautiful of the golf course. The food was delicious. We got so many positive comments from our guests. The dance floor is huge. It was a great space to dance the night away! Also, Nicole and the entire staff were very helpful in making our event possible.

Negatives:
The gazebo seating is very unusual. It is an odd view and a bumpy terrain for the chairs so just be aware if you choose to use this as your ceremony site. The hall is large but it definitely cannot comfortably hold the 215 they told us it could without putting tables on the dance floor. We had 185 (including the 16 in the wedding party that were at the head table on the dance floor that was broken down after dinner) and it was a tight squeeze. They had to have a row of rectangular tables along the windows that were very packed in and uncomfortable for those guests. Also, if there is more than one event at the same time, parking is tight. Some of our guests had to park across the street.

In summary, I would strongly recommend this venue if you have less than 160 people at your event. Great food, good service, and a beautiful view from the balcony.

The Fountains Golf and Banquet was fantastic!!! Our wedding day was truly amazing and we are so happy we had our wedding there. We had nothing but amazing reviews from our guests. The food was perfect, we went with family style and it was delicious. The salmon and chicken were cooked just right and we loved the staff that waited on our guests. All our guests raved about the food, the location, the gazebo, and the room. It was so beautiful from the golf course to the balcony. Not only was our wedding day perfect thanks to the fountains but the staff who worked with us to achieve that was amazing. Jennifer and Lindsay were outstanding. They always kept in touch and whatever questions I asked they would get back to me as soon as possible. They helped me stay so calm on my wedding day and took care of everything that day. I had not one worry leading up to my wedding day. Both ladies were so kind and helpful and helped make our day exactly what we wanted. I honestly have not one negative thing to say about the fountains, I would recommend this venue to any couple planning on getting married. Our wedding day was beautiful and thanks to the kind staff they helped make our day so memorable!!! Thank you Fountains Golf, it was a pleasure working with you all. -Jessica & joe married on 6-22-13

I couldn't have been happier with The Fountains! Originally when we choose The Fountains there was a different coordinator. She was hard to work with and not very professional. Not long afterwards she was replaced and we started working with Lindsay and Heather. They were amazing! They were very prompt in responding to communications and met up with us every time we asked. The hall was beautifully set for my big day. They paid more attention to detail than I ever could have. Lindsay and Heather were both on hand to make sure the night went smoothly and as planned. They were both very professional and courteous to our guests. The food turned out even better than at the tasting. Everyone is still talking about how good the food was! The rest of the staff stayed on top of keeping tables cleaned and making sure guests were taken care of. As far as the venue, it was perfect for the number of people we had (120). The view looking out on the course was the perfect setting for pictures at sunset as well as setting the mood in the hall. Pricing was reasonable and worth every bit of it! I would recommend giving this venue a look! If I need banquet center again, I will definitely being going back to The Fountains!

The Fountains is a beautiful place with great food. The atmosphere was amazing and exactly what we were looking for. Then we booked with them and discovered their banquet manager is a nightmare to work with. She will not give you a straight answer and she is forgetful and tries to go back on what she says. We discussed adding an extra hour to our reception and she quoted me the price. Luckily for me my D.O.C told me to get everything in writing in emails and save them. Two weeks before the wedding she tried to tell me we couldn't Have our reception go until 1am because they don't do that. Luckily I had the email. Then she back peddled and tried to make up an excuse about " a wedding they had last week got so drunk they had to shut the bar down. They would let me have the extra hour but we will be the last ones!" She would always use the "last week at a wedding " every time I called her on something. The night of my wedding she told both my photo booth host and my DJ they had to be out by 1:10am. With the reception ending at 1 am that gave them 10 minutes to shut down and pack up. They both told me they would now need to shut down at 1240 at the latest. When my husband asked her about it she denied ever saying that but when he called the DJ and the photo booth host over she stated that there must have been a miscommunication. The whole staff in general is not friendly. We did family style and a table ran out of food and one person didn't have anything on his plate. When they asked for more food the server seconded with a very rude " what do you want me to do." they explained that they wanted her to refill the bowls. She proceeded to go to the back and lump a bunch of food onto a plate and bring it out to him. With all of our upgrades and extra hour we paid $84 per person. At $84 per person I expect you to refill the bowl and smile while you do it. They sew also rude to all of my vendors. My photo booth attendent asked for a chair twice and they did not get her one. Once I found this out I got her a chair. I could go on for ever! The place is awesome when you look at it but beware. I loved my Wedding but this place is not worth the trouble!!!!!!!

The Fountains Golf and Banquet responded with the following comments:

Lisa,
I would personally like to thank you for choosing our venue. Also, I would like to sincerely apologize for the service you were given by our previous event coordinator. As of November of last year we have made some very positive changes to our venue including bringing two new event coordinators on board. I am glad you loved the venue itself, and again apologize for the poor treatment you recieved from our previous staff. We take this very personally and have adressed the issues to ensure our venue meets our clients standards. Thank you for review, our sincierest apologies once again. Best wishes to you and your husband :)
