We had our wedding May 10th and we had been working with Sarah who did a great job helping us along the way. Everything went perfectly. The food was outstanding and all the guests had a wonderful time!

Amazing experience! Sarah at Virginia Oaks went above and beyond to help make our day a special one. The amount we paid for the experience we got was a steal - reasonably priced! They helped to make sure we got everything we wanted on our big day. My husband and I recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding!

The accommodating attitude from Sarah (wedding coordinator) and Tommy (manager) was unsurpassed. We have literally never experienced such stellar customer service! In fact, I've mentioned it several times at my company meetings where we discuss customer service in our business (which has nothing to do with weddings).

We wanted a sit-down dinner and open bar, so after some painless negotiation, we settled on a custom package that suited us perfectly. They even matched the slightly lower price we had gotten from a competitor.

VA Oaks doesn't have a site rental fee. Other places wanted to charge $3K - $7K just to walk on their ground, which didn't include food, drinks, linen charges, bartender fees, chairs, and other "up-charges."

At the tasting, we sampled 4 or 5 entrees and 4 or 5 hors d'oeuvres. Chef Dan even came out and suggested different variations in sauces and whatnot. We've never planned a wedding before, so maybe this is customary, but I was quite impressed.

Emails and questions were always answered promptly and in a friendly manner. We joke now that their answer to everything was, "Absolutely!" Can we have this, can we do that? Absolutely.

When the wedding go-time arrived, Sarah swept in like a SWAT team commando. She and her team went into full afterburner mode, and Sarah was somehow everywhere at once. At the reception, our out-of-town family all remarked, "Man, that Sarah is ON it! She's amazing."

Many guests said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to.

The only drawback is that there's no bridal suite and no groom's area. The girls got ready in an unused office containing two large desks. The only mirror is in the bathroom, so the girls shuffled back and forth between the two, all the while trying to avoid the groom and groomsmen, who had nowhere to go but outside. If they attached a bridal suite with couches, mirrors, and plenty of outlets for curling irons, etc. to the bathroom, it would be perfect.

Virginia Oaks was the perfect place for our wedding!! We cannot thank Sarah & Tommy enough for making our event go so smoothly! Sarah is an excellent wedding coordinator and set up everything on the day of our wedding to near perfection! She was very responsive and easy to communicate with whenever we had questions or concerns. The food was excellent and they were able to provide us with everything we needed within our budget by customizing our wedding package. Thanks again Sarah & Tommy!! -Helen & Stephen

Our event was wonderful. Event Coordinator Sarah O'Connor and Head Pro Tom Miller made sure that everything went smoothly and that everything was taken care of. The staff provided excellent and friendly service for a great price! We will definitely use Virginia Oaks again for other events.

I love Virginia Oaks because it's a great package deal. I had both my ceremony and reception on-site which made everything so much simpler. My guests didn't have to drive from one location to another, but could just walk straight to the cocktail hour after the ceremony. They have a great back-up ceremony location in case the weather doesn't cooperate (which ours didn't) which is an outdoor patio with a tent covering it. I really liked this option since we were technically still getting married outside even though it wasn't out on the green. The rececption room is great with huge windows to see out on the golf course. I have to say the absolute best part of Virginia Oaks is Lindsay Goodwin. She's the Sales and Catering Manager, but she does it all! She was there to answer all my questions throughout the whole process and was very responsive and knowledgable. I couldn't have pulled it off without her! I would definitely recommend this place to get married.

I recently had my reception at Virginia Oaks and had a wonderful experience. Lindsay Goodwin is so friendly, enthusiastic, responsive, attentive -- she's fantastic. Anything I requested, she was quick to say yes. The facility is quite nice, more simple and modest than some other golf clubs. Very reasonable price with no extra/hidden fees. Lindsay takes care of everything -- we just dropped off a bunch of boxes, explained where we wanted everything, and the next day it looked absolutely perfect and as envisioned. We had a sit-down lunch for 68. Fast, attentive service. The food was not the best I've ever had, but quite good. It was just a perfect day; no complaints from us or the guests.

We were married on November 1st 2008. Fortunately we found such a wonderful place like VA Oaks to have our reception following our wedding, which was held elsewhere due to Catholic restrictions of not holding ceremonies outside of the church. First off let me say that Lindsay Goodwin is absolutely the perfect person for the job. She makes everything so easy, is very accommodating, and not to mention goes above and beyond to help you out. Since Lindsay is such a pleasure to work with it was no surprise that the reception went incredibly smooth without any hiccups and looked incredible. Granted we wished the reception site was a bit bigger at first in the end it worked out for the better that it was on the smaller side. Our wedding had 100-105 persons attend and to be quite honest I believe that is the perfect number to have. The reception site can accommodate a max number of 130 however, due to size I would try to set a max of 120. The food was good and the price per person was incredible for all that it included. We decided to do a buffet style reception due to our budget and it was still very nice and very easy to navigate. They also have a bar on site that is staffed without any additional costs with options for an open or cash bar. All of the staff are great as they are very polite, professional, and willing to help. That to me is worth a lot more than the costs of the reception itself. It's so hard to find such great people to work with like we found through VA Oaks that for that reason alone it made our reception there worth every penny. If I had it to do all over I wouldn't change a thing!

We got married in June when it was super hot! We used VA Oaks for both the ceremony and reception! Lindsay did a great job taking over last minute and for having my wedding day run smooth! We were going to get married on the green, but with the weather being one of the hottest days of Summer we were able to move it under the tent. VA Oaks is the perfect place to get married if you want around 100 guests, and friendly atmosphere! I would recommend VA Oaks to my friends who will be getting married.

When the weather turned wet and the ceremony moved to a tent, they were wonderful about getting some green astro-turf to make isle runners from for my ceremony- as to simulate the golf greens. It turned out BEAUTIFUL. The day-of coordinator went above and beyond to help make my day special and keep everything in order, on time, and beautiful. Lindsay Goodwin deserves a metal for coming in and taking over her position at VA Oaks only 2 months before my wedding and really doing a PHENOMENAL job! She was professional and really knows her stuff. I really admire her confidence as well. The cermony fee was more han reasonable, the food was great (we had a brunch reception) and there were never hidden costs. We also liked that the gratuity and tax was included already in our final prices.

This was such a wonderful venue for our wedding reception! Originally we were going to have the ceremony here as well and they were so flexible about arranging chairs, where we could put it, and alternatives in case it rained. The event coordinator was extremely friendly and made sure that everything was taken care of. The staff were professional during the rehearsal dinner and during the reception. We loved the service that we got and the price that we paid. Other venues had so many hidden and extra fees, but Virginia Oaks was very straight forward and very reasonable!

We were slightly disappointed with the venue. Mostly it was just for those of us who knew about the original promises made when we booked it. We were told there would be people in tuxedos to guide the guests to the proper areas. They weren't there. The golfers we were told would be kept away, were actually quite close by and were heard during the ceremony. The ladies room was not adequately stocked with tp and paper towels.

The food however was delicious and the reception room looked very nice. It had it's ups and downs, but the guests all had a great time.

We chose this venue for its beautiful outdoor setting, and spacious reception site. Overall, the staff were very responsive, but one table was never called to the buffet, so we took it upon ourselves to tell them to get food from the buffet. Some of the items that our florist dropped off weren't used, which would've enhanced the beauty of the ceremony site, but the guests probably didn't notice.
Besides these minor issues, the wedding went very well and I'd highly recommend Virginia Oaks Golf Club as a ceremony and/or reception site.

We are simply devastated with the outcome of our daughter's wedding. Although the food was good and the environment appeared pleasant, our guests, many of whom left early, will only remember how very hot it was due to the broken air conditioner. Our guests, sweaty and politely inquiring about the AC, tried to relocate to the air conditioned bar area, only to miss out on the DJ and the dance floor. Our wedding coordinator told us that she had been complaining for hours before the reception that the AC was broken. She was told over and over again, "no, it's not broken, the DJ and others just keep opening up the doors." At 9:00 am, the coordinator told them, "if it's 82 degrees in there right now, just how hot do you think it's going to be at 2:00 pm?" She kept being told it was fine. When we got to the reception, which started at 1:00 pm, everyone was patient, believing that they simply had not turned on the AC yet. We were incredulous on finding out that the AC had been broken all day and we would receive no relief. They did add a few small fans and went out and purchased a portable AC unit, for which the two teenage boys were unable to operate. This of course happened once it was obvious people were leaving in droves. I was heartsick. And, to really add insult to injury, the manager, Tommy Miller, wouldn't even provide the courtesy to return phone calls after the weekend. Finally, he returned a phone call to offer free golf to compensate as if there is any compensation for our daughter's ruined wedding day. We don't even play golf! He said that the AC guy had been called and had fixed it presumably on Saturday morning. Really? I thought it wasn't broken? Mr. Miller is not only a bad manager but a liar as well. I wonder if he has any daughters planning to be married. We are disgusted with the unresponsiveness of the management. I can't believe he can keep his job. Beware if you're planning on a wedding in July if you consider this place. The wedding planner, Sarah, w
