Over the last 8 years our family has continued to be very pleased in holding many Groom's Dinners, Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions at The Refuge Golf Club. My daughter held her Outdoor Ceremony and Reception there just last week. Jamie, the Coordinator, is very helpful and hands on. She truly listens to what you want, and gives suggestions from there. She keeps communication open and is easy to reach - so important. Joe, too, steps in when needed. They are very flexible and gracious with even last minute changes and accommodations. The grounds in every season are impeccably beautiful. The building is more modern rustic than stodgy lodge. The ambiance is warm yet airy; with its high, exposed post and beam ceiling, wood columns, and stone fireplace. The dance floor wood glows. All is is lightened up with its windowed walls overlooking and opening up to the huge stone patio with gazebo area and both the manicured and wild grounds. Ceremonies can be performed under the patio gazebo, the ground gazebo, or indoors. My daughter used the ground gazebo decorated with white tulle and it was beautiful blowing in the breeze! The food is fantastic; we chose a buffet dinner. We were 150 and it felt spacious. The service is great - they even helped carry in, set up and pick up the decor we brought! Guests were very comfortable; their round tables seating 10 are good for visiting. A golf cart & driver were on hand to shuttle people needing assistance from building to cars in the lot. The Refuge has always met my expectations; it's a very special place for us and it will become one for you, too.

We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding! Jami was wonderful to work with. The setting was perfect for our winter wedding- it was so cozy with the fireplace! The food was amazing- it was one of the reasons we wanted our wedding at the Refuge because we had been to weddings there in the past. I also loved that almost all of the amenities were included in the room rental price- it made the process so much easier! Thank you to Jami and everyone else at the Refuge who made our day perfect!

We got married at The Refuge Golf Club on the hottest day of the year in 2015 and we had a great time! Joe and Jamie were awesome to work with.

The venue was beautiful. The outdoor flowers were in bloom and they matched the colors of our wedding party. We asked for a special set-up outdoors and it worked out wonderful.

They were willing to let us use a couple a couple of golf carts later in the day and we had fun taking pictures. We also did a putting contest on the practice greens after the rehearsal for everyone in the wedding party which was a hoot.

We had looked at a number of golf course venues and this was definitely the best for our budget. The dinner was wonderful and we had many compliments from our guests. The almond crusted chicken and the salmon were our favorite and done to perfection.

We didn't have to worry about anything other than having fun & enjoying our special day with family and friends.

Joe and Mariah were so reliable and dependable while planning our wedding at The Refuge! They were very professional and took care of any wedding day hiccups before I had time to worry! They have an excellent staff and we couldn't have been happier!

The site for this wedding was beautiful and we got nonstop compliments on it. There are a couple things, which weren't such a hindrance but I thought I would make others aware of. First, there is a giant, beautiful fire place right in the middle of the dance floor. This is fine if you don't plan on having a large wedding but if you do, plan on having guests sit behind it and not seeing much of what is going on. Second, I feel that the wedding planner at this location was super sweet but at times was a little unprofessional. She didn't return calls until quite awhile later, which is a little annoying. Third, if you plan on taking your pictures at the site you'll have to stay off the greens (which are super beautiful) and they are not flexible on letting you use a couple golf carts to get around the place. Otherwise, I think this place is very beautiful and I know a lot of people get married here and love it.

The Refuge is a beautiful, rustic, yet modern wedding venue. We received so many compliments from our guests’ that it was the most beautiful venue they had ever seen. The vaulted ceilings and wood work was amazing. It is also reassuring to know they have two backup plans in case it rains; under the covered patio or inside.

My only complaint is the tiny room for the bridal party to get ready in and no room for the groomsmen. There is no natural light in the bridal room and the connected bathroom had a strange musty odor. However, I am glad that there was a room since it was better than nothing. We ended up doing our makeup in the stairwell where there was natural light.

Jessica, the wedding coordinator was great to work with and very responsive to our emails. The Refuge is a must see venue in the north metro.

We loved having our wedding at The Refuge. It was the absolutely perfect balance of rustic and elegant for us. We also wanted to be able to get married outside with a good back-up plan. Unlike many venues where "back-up" plan is having guests sit at their dinner tables, The Refuge offers a beautiful wrap-around porch/patio to get married on in the case of rain. Fortunately, we had beautiful weather but it was reassuring to me to know that there was a good back-up.

Jessica, the wedding coordinator, was incredibly helpful, friendly, and very understanding of my many questions. She made me feel very comfortable that things would go smoothly the day of the wedding and they did. There were a few small things that could have been better (golf carts going behind us during pictures, the bartenders not asking our contact person if we wanted to go to the reserve alcohol) but I attribute some of those things to Jessica not being there the day of the wedding and it being run by someone who was less familiar with our plan for the day. None of these things influenced how well our day went, they were just very small things that could have been improved on.

We had a perfect wedding day! I would highly recommend The Refuge. It is a beautiful venue that is more reasonably priced than many of the other place near Minneapolis/St. Paul and the staff are very helpful.

They were great and I truly believe a wonderful value. The whole team was amazing to work with; people loved the food and the venue. It was a great place to have the wedding. I did actually recommend it to a co-worker's daughter; they are not only having their wedding there as well but with the referral we received complimentary appetizers!
People thought the food was amazing too. It was truly a wonderful evening :)
