Piney Branch Golf Club
Quality of food was 5 stars.
Staff was professional and very helpful.
Rose and Aziz was most helpful getting everything setup.
Mary did an excellant job keeping everything flowing at the reception.
Reception was a parents no worry event.
Choosing Piney Branch as our reception sight was one of the best decisions my (then) fiance and I made! Aziz, Rose and Mary were amazing to work with! I am a picky eater and during the tasting Aziz made notes to change sauces and spices on the food without any hassle.
When we arrived we had a nice waiting area for just the bridal party to enjoy cheese and crackers while my new husband and I were off on a golf cart with the photographer and videographer to take scenic pictures on the property. I do believe driving around in the golf card was my husbands favorite part. Aziz did not rush us with pictures even though we were running a little behind. He was so calm and in control that it helped me to remain calm and enjoy the day. The dining room was decorated so nicely and the set up was picture perfect! The food was AMAZING! All our guests are still commenting on how good the food was. It is not typical wedding food at all! Typically you have to sacrifice quality for quantity when doing a buffet, not Piney Branch!
I would recommend Piney Branch to anyone looking for a reception site. You won't find a nicer group of people to work with and the site is absolutely beautiful.
Piney Branch and ALL employees are extremely helpful, courteous, and very flexible. I had several changes that occured at the last minute and Aziz and Ms. Rose were very kind and accommodated each request I had. I highly recommend Piney Branch for all your event needs.
From start to finish I loved working with the owner, who was very involved and was present at the reception, and his amazing staff! The food at the tasting and the actual even were top notch! We chose to do a buffet and picked three 'meals' worth of items for guests to chose from, they could get at much or little as they wanted! They were efficient in replacing diminished dishes and in taking care of guests. There were many more service staff for our event then I was expecting, which only meant more attention was paid to my family, guests, bridal party, and the groom and myself. I could go on forever, but just trust me. Call the venue and set up a meeting asap!
In a word…superb! From the selection of napkin colors to the private sampling of exquisite food prepared by a Chef who obviously takes great pride in his work and goes the extra mile to accommodate special dietary needs, the planning for the evening went very smoothly. Aziz and his wonderful staff walked us through each step, giving us confidence that everything would go smoothly. And it DID! Their helpful suggestions from years of experience and pleasant demeanor made everything perfect. In addition, I’ve never experienced more competent or attentive wait staff. The evening of the reception found our guests enjoying a lovely cocktail hour on the Gazebo following by the reception in the lovely and spacious hall. We’re still getting rave reviews about the abundant and delectable food and the beauty of the venue two weeks after the event! The golf cart ride for the bride and groom to a gorgeous spot on the golf course for pictures was an added bonus! It’s all thanks to the wonderful professional people at Piney Branch Golf Club and their clean and beautiful facility. They were able to accommodate our every request without hesitation. I’m recommending them to all my friends.
Azis and rose were very accommodating! I was very pleased with our service for our wedding!! It truly was beautiful!
Aziz made our experience with Piney Branch wonderful from the very beginning. During our initial visit, we and our families felt very welcomed by Aziz. We had a specific date in mind, and when we decided to go with Piney Branch for our wedding reception, Aziz went out of his way to accommodate us on that date. During our tasting, we felt at home and were able to try anything and everything we wanted. To make the experience even better, everything we tasted was absolutely delicious!
On the day of the wedding, we were running a bit behind schedule due to a long ceremony and lots of pictures to take. Aziz and his staff shifted our planned timing as needed to ensure our guests were able to enjoy the cocktail hour, and got dinner out as quickly as possible as soon as we were ready. We had steak and crab cake, and our guests raved about the food as we knew they would. The staff were also extremely helpful, and we did not need to worry about a thing. They let us know when it was time for father/daughter and mother/son dances, and directed us when it was time to cut our cake, throw the bouquet and remove the garter. We had such a fun time dancing that we did not want to leave! We asked Aziz if we could extend our reception for an extra hour and he quickly accommodated our request. When the party finally ended, the staff at Piney Branch took care of everything from getting our flowers together to wrapping our cake topper and helping us pack up our things.
Overall, I would recommend Piney Branch to anyone who wants to have a wonderful and worry-free wedding reception! Piney Branch was about a half hour from our ceremony location, but we (and our guests) felt it was well worth the drive. Thank you to Aziz and everyone at Piney Branch for making our wedding reception such an amazing time!
Very helpful and easy to deal with. We were pleased with all aspects of the services provided and they made our day especially special with their professionalism. Highly recommended.
Piney Branch was an amazing venue that provided a picturesque background for our wedding pictures. The grounds are perfectly maintained and the grand ball room is laid out so that all guests can have a great time. Our guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the covered pavilion and were able to walk outside on the porch through out the reception. This is a perfect venue if you're looking to add an element of the outdoors without chancing the weather and still maintain a formal atmosphere. The staff was very inviting and catered to our every need. The food was amazing!! Many of the guests commented on the quality and variety! I highly recommend this venue!
We had a fantastic experience at Piney Branch Golf Club!!!!
The event planners, Aziz and Rose, were extremely accomodating. Every single email and call I made were responded to in a timely manor (which is HUGE in my book)! Everything I asked for, (and it seemed had I asked for the moon they would have found a way to get it for me) they made sure I had on my wedding day.
On rehearsal day and wedding day (starting at 8:30AM), Aziz was there every step of the way. He worked so hard to have everything we wanted.
We had 150 people attend our ceremony and reception....both held at the golf club. The ceremony was held at the outdoor pavilion, and the reception in the ballroom inside of the clubhouse. Both places were beautiful! We have some absolutely amazing pictures!!
The food at both the cocktail hour and dinner were great! We chose to go with a buffet, and trust me when I tell you that many people were going up for seconds and thirds!
We, and all of our guests had a fantastic time at our wedding....guests ranging 20 years old to 80 years old have complimented the wonderful venue! We and our guests ended up having so much fun that we extend the reception an hour longer than we expected....In the final hour of the reception, my father asked Aziz to extend it one more hour....without hesitation, they "worked it out" :)
Here is just one example of how great they were:
I ordered/rented chair covers separate from an outside vendor (not through Piney Branch)....mistake on my part....when they arrived at Piney Branch, they didn't fit the chairs!!!! Aziz immediately got in contact with another chaircover vendor, had them expedite an order over to the venue, paid the rush fee's, and made sure I did not stress about it one bit....actually, they didn't even tell me until it was too late for me to stress!!! So, my one and only problem on my wedding day was taken care of before I knew it was a problem!!! (and trust me ladies, this could have made me have a major meltdown) The staff there also packed up and sent back both sets of chair covers so we didn't have to worry about it!!
I owe Aziz, Rose, and all of the Staff at Piney Branch Golf Club a HUGE thank you! We would not change anything about our wedding, and we would definitely recommend Piney Branch Golf Club as a wedding venue!
We had an excellent experience! All of our guest loved the food.
Aziz and the rest of the staff at Piney Branch made our wedding perfect! So many people came up to me that night and afterward, asking how we found such a nice place and commented on how they never knew it was there! One of my guests is considering booking her wedding there, now. The food was delicious, the space was set-up perfectly, and Aziz made sure everything ran smoothly from the start of planning until we walked out the door after the reception.
Aziz and the staff at Piney Branch made our day incredibly special. I can
not thank them enough for all their expert...well "everything". They made
everything so easy for us from the very beginning .The food, the service.
We'll have great memories of our wedding and Piney Branch. If your looking
for a place that will make everything beautiful and easy this is the place!
My wedding at Piney Branch Golf Club was picture perfect! I couldn't have asked for anything else - everything went off like clock-work all due the diligent efforts of club manager, Aziz Iskander, and his wonderful staff. The day was beautiful (he promised me it would be) mid-July 84 degrees with a slight breeze! Aziz even carried my train to the end of the aisle. The ceremony pavillion was beautiful - our pictures were gorgeous with the landscaping of the golf club as a backdrop. The food was so delicious. Our guests have said they never had food at a wedding that was so delicious (Thanks Chef Bobby!!). My parents phone range off the hook the next day with calls from guests stating it was the best wedding they've ever attended. Best wedding decision I made!!!
Aziz and his staff were very professional and ensured my husband and I had everything we needed on our spacial day. We didn't have to worry about a thing the day of as we knew he had it handled. We had an amazing wedding that went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Piney Branch as a wedding venue.
Great venue and great people to work with!
Very helpful with all aspects of the ceremony and reception. Food and service was excellent. Could not have asked for more!
My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at Piney Branch and we loved EVERYTHING about it. From the first time we met with the event coordinator, Aziz, we felt that we were dealing with experienced professionals. Aziz penciled us in on our prospective date during our first meeting then gave us 2 weeks to think about it which I really liked because it relieved a lot of pressure from the decision without the fear of someone else swooping in and taking our date from us.
We met with Aziz several times to discuss details and he was willing to work with all of my ideas and answer my questions, and even had a few suggestions of his own for how to make the most of the venue. I was very pleased at the level of personalization I was allowed because it kept our wedding from feeling too “cookie cutter” despite the country club setting (which I had previously thought might have that effect).
They only schedule one event a day, so we were able to bring favors, table cards, escort cards, etc. to the rehearsal and the staff set them up early the next day. Also, my bridesmaids and I arrived very early the day of and had our hair and makeup done on site which was very convenient for me (we did not have to fight humidity, car rides, etc. to keep our hair and makeup pristine). The only complaint here is that the bride's room (which serves most days as a conference room) is not pretty so I don't recommend many pictures being taken here, and you should have your makeup artist bring extra lighting because it is not quite bright enough for precise work like this. But the room was spacious (I had myself, 3 bridesmaids, my mother, hair stylist, makeup artist, equipment, and 2 flower girls comfortably in the room) and a safe place to keep all of our belongings for the day. Also, Aziz gave us refreshments and snacks and checked in on us to make sure we didn't need anything which was very nice.
The ceremony location is a beautiful covered patio that protects from rain or harsh sunlight and makes a very comfortable setting. The landscape is also very beautiful and made for incredible pictures.
Piney Branch also provides the food (with a few different menu options and the choice of buffet or sit-down) and there wasn't a thing that we ate here that wasn't delicious.
I definitely HIGHLY recommend Piney Branch because it is beautiful and Aziz will make your day completely worry...
Aziz could not have been more accommodating during the entire planning process. The food was absolutely wonderful and the staff was very attentive. The surrounding area was beautiful for photographs.
