I could not have handpicked a better venue for our wedding reception. Emily, the Director of Events, was an absolute pleasure to work alongside of and she and her staff executed my vision perfectly. All of our guests couldn't believe the amazing service that they experienced and the delicious food that was served. I would confidently recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!

The new Director of Events, Emily, and the entire staff were phenomenal. We had to move our cocktail hour and dancing inside last minute due to weather, but they took care of every little detail without any hassle to us. Our guests keep telling us how much they LOVED the food. We also had a s’mores bar through Glen Oaks, and it was also a huge hit. Emily was really great with coordinating with our other vendors, so we could trust that our vision was executed beautifully. If you want a gorgeous location with tons of options and a team of experienced people who will take care of practically everything, Glen Oaks is that place.

Glen Oaks was perfect for our wedding! One of the biggest things when looking for a venue was the ability to have both the ceremony and reception in the same location. Another big factor was having our dogs be able to be a part of the ceremony. Glen Oaks checked both of those boxes! The location, building, and grounds were beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for pictures. The bridal suite was huge, with plenty of space for onsite hair and makeup. Emily, the Director of Events, started in her position just a few months before our wedding. It made us nervous switching to a new person from the one we had already been working with, but Emily made it seamless. She was super responsive to emails and phone calls, patient, and knowledgeable. We planned our wedding long-distance, but she made it effortless. During our rehearsal and wedding day, Emily took charge of every detail and I literally had nothing to stress/worry about. The entire staff of Glen Oaks provided superb service. They even helped us set up the decor that we had brought on our own. Glen Oaks requires that all food and beverage be purchased through the club, which we didn't mind, because it was one less vendor I had to find. Their food was amazing! We had lunch in our bridal suite of assorted wraps and fruit, which was so fresh. During cocktail hour we had passed hors d'oeuvres and my sister and husband couldn't stop eating the pork pot stickers. During dinner, we had four different food stations and our guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing the food was. I can't say enough good things about Glen Oaks and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

We were so happy with how everything went at the Club. The food and service at the reception was outstanding. All our family and many of our friends commented on how great the food and service was and that their meal was hot when served. So many times that is lacking at large events so people notice when it is good! I think it is unusual to have guests rave over both the food and service at a gathering of this size.

We also enjoyed working with the Director of Events and developed a great relationship with her. She was especially helpful with our final food tasting and choosing the wines to be served with our dinner. She took great notes for the chef and everything was how we expected

Lastly, the club house looked fantastic. It is clean and the appearance is up-to-date and we were very proud to host our wedding there.

Many thanks for all you do to make our Club top-notch!

“In August of 2014, GOCC made a dream come true for our family. Our daughter, Ashlee, was married in an exquisite outdoor ceremony, followed by an outdoor cocktail hour, an amazing dinner and a dance on the veranda. It all began with the Director of Events. She worked tirelessly answering questions, assisting with details and organizing for our daughter’s wedding. She made us feel like we were the only wedding being planned at Glen Oaks. The setup was perfection down to the last detail. Every staff person involved was delightful to work with and did everything they could to make the day special for us.

Glen Oaks as a facility is stunningly beautiful. The grounds are meticulously groomed, the greenery is gorgeous in photos and the Clubhouse is warm and inviting with numerous options and different spaces to make your wedding unlike anyone else’s. We look back on this day as well as the year of planning before the big day, and we know without question that every aspect of the day was the best that it could be because of Jamie and the GOCC staff."


    James & Lindsey Rizzuti   "On behalf Lindsey and our families, I would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation for your grace and care that contributed to making a very special day that much more memorable. From the reception and all that went into it, to the intimate ceremony upstairs, it’s a day we will never forget. The club and everyone that was a part of that day will always hold a special place in our hearts. You exceeded our expectations and we truly are forever grateful for it.  We thank you all again."
