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 :)

They were great, especially as my wedding got closer they really stepped up and I no longer even needed my wedding planner. I was a little worried about certain things not being taken care of, like not letting golfers park in front of the pavillion so they were not in my photos, but they were great about it closer to my wedding. Great food and service and I loved that they let me borrow little extras like candles I forgot. It was absolutly beautiful there, it felt like I was getting married in a home not a wedding factory:)
