We had our wedding reception here on 12-22-17. Christa, the wedding coordinator, was wonderful to work with! She answered all of my questions promptly and made sure I was aware of all costs. She was a...lso there the day before as we set up and the day of the wedding, which helped make everything go much more smoothly. The food was fantastic and we had so many compliments! I loved that the room is so beautiful, that you don't even need many decorations of your own. There is a gorgeous fireplace mantle that was fun to decorate though! Highly recommend this venue.

As a wedding photographer, I cannot say enough about the Refuge Golf Club. Obviously the venue itself is absolutely stunning, and provides a variety of backdrops for wedding photos. The staff was extr...emely helpful both to me as a vendor and to my couple, and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting. Highly recommend, and can't wait to capture another wedding here! See More

Our son and daughter in laws wedding was there on 12/9/17. We are still receiving compliments on the venue, food, wait staff and bartenders. The managers and wedding coordinator were a joy to work wit...h. They were so informative and answered every question with ease. After the ceremony they set up the extra tables so quickly and without interruption that we hardly noticed they were doing it! We received many compliments about the large portions of food and how tasty it was. The wait staff was excellent at removing finished plates and drinks without interrupting our guests. Also many of our guests enjoyed the banter with the bartenders! This venue is so gorgeous in it's own right that the little we added just made it more spectacular! We cannot Thank you enough for everything you did in making "our night" one we will never forget! See More

I've played golf at and been a fan of The Refuge for almost ten years. I'm still willing to make the drive from the south metro to play it. The golf course has been improved a lot during the time I'v...e played there and the golf staff does a great job making golfers feel welcome and valued. See More

It was a great overall course for the price. Scenic, optional tee boxes really allow for all skill levels to be challenged, modern club house.

Great place for a wedding. The outside is just beautiful and the inside is well organized with table placement perfect to fit a good sized crowd.

Frien...dly staff. Overall just a wonderful time every time. Would recommend to any player. Worth the money. See More

Course was in great shape for so early in the year. Now if you could work on the 5.5 hour rounds come summer I'll come back and give you a 5

A shorter course, usually well maintained. Greens are medium speed, but fair. Can be challenging if you stray far off the fairway. Many holes are lined by thick marsh and lots of trees. Some scenic ho...les on the back 9 too. See More

This late in the year and the course was still in good condition. My only wish was to have had the greens trimmed as they seemed too fuzzy and slow compared to the many previous rounds played there.

I am working on learning how to play golf. This is the first course I've played. I brought friends here because I thought this place was great. Our group of 4 has now been told several times to "speed... up" even though there has been a group in front of us the entire time. I have chosen not to golf the back 9 as I am clearly not good enough for this PUBLIC clubs standards. This course has completely turned me off from wanting to golf again. I do NOT suggest this course to any "beginner" golfer or even an average golfer. See More

Outstanding layout, not an easy hole, but you don't mind, because it is so beautiful! If I had to complain about anything, the greens might be a hair too fast for the difficulty to get on them.

The Refuge Golf Club is AMAZING! My husband and I got married here this October and it was everything we dreamt of! The staff helped us every step of the way and contributed to the best day of our lives!

I held my wedding reception at the refuge. I'm so happy I choose this place. Everything turned out great! The food was excellent and the wedding planners were easy to work with.

Very nice place, great food, but could improve a little on service speed during weddings and large events.
