Hollow Brook Golf Club
I honestly can say I had my dream wedding at Hollow Brook. The space is absolutely stunning - perfect if you're looking for something a little rustic but elegant at the same time. The food was mouth-wateringly delicious (I had to make sure I had a bite of everything!) and the staff was very attentive. As for Robbyn, I cannot say enough about how awesome it was to work with her. She knew exactly how to make all of my ideas a reality while making many great suggestions herself - she obviously knows what she's doing. Every time I visited Hollow Brook and spoke with Robbyn, I always left feeling confident I was in good hands, and I was! Everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for more!!
My husband and I were elated when we found Hollow Brook! We had wanted a rustic, barnlike wedding and HB seemed perfect. We visited Robbyn and booked 18 months in advance, leaving our deposit with her. However, we didn't receive our contract until 6 months later after having to contact Robbyn again. The planning continued and when it came time to set up the menu Robbyn was very helpful. After both meetings with her she had "forgotten" to email us the updates and agenda, even during the week before the wedding I had to contact her for the last agenda b/c she had forgotten again. That's everything BEFORE the wedding... On our wedding day, many things went wrong and I will list them: the cake bite desserts that we were convinced to get were no where to be found at the wedding. There was no dessert delivered to our sweetheart table so was eating dessert off of my mothers table and I never had a piece of our cake. We also never got the top layer of our cake :( we are still not sure what happened to it. On our stations menu there was pulled pork sliders, but by the time we got to the food, they were gone and replaced with white castle looking cheese burger sliders (without us being informed) Food trays were empty and some people even said their food was cold. Many staff members never refilled water glasses at tables and never offered drinks at tables like Robbyn said they would. At the end of the night we had to ask staff for our Lenox items back and the rest of the items we had brought there instead of them having things ready for us to take with us. For our favors we had a candy buffet. I had to remind Joshua the matre'd to put out the bags for our guests but he didn't know where they were and guests were filling their purses with candy. I had to personally go and try to find them, and when Joshua did find them he never even set them up, just left the packages unopened on the table. As jars were emptied nothing got refilled b/c the rest of our candy was locked in the ma
Vendor response to review
When a wedding venue has nothing but positive reviews and then a single negative review appears, then one has to wonder where the problem really lays. No one is perfect and no situation is perfect. However, the common thread on all of the reviews of Hollow Brook is how caring the staff is, from the planner, Robbyn to the Maitre D' Joshua, to the service team, Executive Chef and kitchen staff. We execute lovely casually elegant events and provide a Bride and Groom a good experience from the time of their first visit to their departure after their wedding. Our numerous positive reviews are a testimonial to that. Perfection is not possible, but a caring team that does their best...that is something to appreciate and that is what Hollow Brook provides.
This is an attempt to damage the reputation of Hollow Brook, our planner Robbyn and these kinds of careless and thoughtless posts can destroy careers and lives. A fact that this individual is choosing to ignore in an attempt to extort and also punish Hollow Brook for her perceived flaws of the evening.

Everything was perfect! I would not change a thing! Robbyn and her staff did a great job...they really are there to make sure everything is exactly how you want it! I love Robbyn's attention to detail and ability to keep things on a schedule! Robbyn had great suggestions and was always there to run an idea by or answer questions. Our guests raved about the breathtaking views, food, and attentiveness of the staff. The food was delicious and were good size portions! The favorites were the eggplant tower and vanilla milkshakes served in a shot glass.
Hollow Brook Golf Club was incredibly accommodating. It was a very personalized experience. Robbyn, their coordinator, made me as a bride feel as though my wedding and I were the only thing on her mind. When it came to my special day, everything went smoothly, more than I ever expected!! I felt almost as if our wedding was planned in my own home. The food was delicious, and our cake was WAY more tasty and beautiful than we ever could have expected. . I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have ease and comfort throughout their entire process of planning until their special day comes to an end. Best choice we ever made :)
We thank our lucky stars that we found Hollowbrook and made the decision to have our wedding at this special place. First, the look and feel of the clubhouse and grounds was everything we envisioned for our day. Everyone attending commented on how “warm” the atmosphere felt – they said it was like “being home”. I had lots of decorations that my family and I worked on and the team at Hollowbrook worked with us to put up everything just as we had visualized it. Robbyn understood my vision and worked with us to create a day that was unique to our style, theme and personalities. Every idea I approached her with they were able to make it happen. The phenomenal chef at Hollowbrook was able to whip up all the unique creations I had in mind and the food was absolutely remarkable. The bartenders were awesome and should receive extra kudos. My family loved their personalities and quick service. We got endless raves about the cocktail hour hors devours and main dishes. Overall everything was absolutly fabulous.
We were married in August of 2011 at Hollow Brook. My husband and I were looking for a venue that was not the typical wedding venue and when a friend recommended Hollow Brook Golf Club, we had to go look at it. We instantly felt the same way when we saw it: it was perfect! It had a beautiful rustic feeling and was nice and spacious. On the day of the wedding, the staff was wonderful, helpful, and very accommodating. The food was delicious, set-up was beautiful, and my husband and I couldn't have been happier.
My husband and I had our wedding at Hollow Brook July 2011 and we are so incredibly happy that we did! Robbyn was extremely helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process and was a pleasure to work with. This venue is absolutely beautiful with a rustic/country elegance- the setting makes for gorgeous pictures also! If you are looking for a more unique wedding venue with character then definitely check out Hollow Brook! The entire staff was professional and polite and the chef (Chef Rivalsi) provides DELICIOUS food... and made us our dream wedding cake from a picture that we found in a magazine! My husband and I had an unforgettable wedding day and Hollow Brook was a perfect place to start our marriage :)
They were wonderful with everything. Robbyn couldn't be a better host. She is a little slow to respond at time, but that is becuase she is so personally involved with every event she needs a day or so to get back to you.
They were VERY flexible to any idea that we had and actually encouraged out of the box thinking. We were lucky enough to be able to also do our decorations the day before. This is not always the case, but since the room was free they were more than happy to let us in Fri day.
We picked this location becuase of it's beauty and it WORKED!! Everyone one of our guests has pictures of the beautiful golf course and the details of the buildings. SOOOO pretty!
The regular staff is GREAT! I only have one complain - We had a larger wedding and I think there was some outside staff that was hired in that wasn't as responsive. This is my guess after getting feedback from a few of my guests who never got cake or coffee. When they asked, the server told them they had already gotten their cake and left it at that.
All in all, it was a GREAT day and I would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Robbyn and your Staff!
Great Place it would be better if they Have The BK Party Band Big Kahuna.
