Comments & Reviews

We were extremely pleased with our selection of GECC as the venue for both our wedding ceremony and reception. We evaluated and toured several other locations and after meeting with Jessica Brannock, we knew GECC would meet all of our requirements. Jessica's enthusiasm, delightful personality and positive attitude had a lot to do with why we chose GECC. Also, their ability to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the water that could be moved inside as late as the day of the wedding was very comforting and reassuring. The option to have a food tasting prior to the wedding was also much appreciated. The Chef was very accommodating and helped us select the perfect menu for our special guests. Throughout the planning, Jessica was extremely attentive and quick to respond to our various request and offered positive solutions. We were so impressed with Jessica we decided to hire her as our Day Coordinator so we had seamless transition to Bianca and her team on our wedding day. Bianca was also very courteous, resourceful and accommodating to our requests throughout our special day and well into the night. The quality of service and professionalism met all of our expectations and we recommend this venue for your wedding.

Wedding Day!

The Golden Eagle Country Club was an amazing wedding venue! We thought the level of service, quality of food and constant communication helped make the ceremony and reception run smoothly and was absolutely beautiful. We loved the fact GECC is a full service venue and had everything we needed for my daughter's wedding (destination wedding). The Christmas decorations and festive ambiance really enhanced our December wedding! Madison, who was our on-site contact after we booked, was very detailed, organized and kind! I appreciated her guidance, professionalism & worked tirelessly to make sure the day was perfection! Bruce, the manager, was spot on in helping us with budget, which my husband appreciated! We had the full use of the grounds and venue on our day! The outside manicured grounds and pergola, (ceremony) and veranda (cocktail hour) are stunningly beautiful.

I highly recommend Golden Eagle Country Club!

Beautiful venue, easy to work with:

Could not have been happier with the staff, food, professionalism, cleanliness, beauty, help, ease, and amenities, everything about this place. I would highly recommend, and would use again!

Awesome Service

Golden Eagle is so very professional with every time I have contacted and met with them! Bruce Sellers, the General Manager, is so personable and so very helpful. He definitely knows how to sell this venue even more! Overall great location and venue and I am so excited to have my wedding here this year!


Absolute Perfection

Golden Eagle was the best choice the new husband and I could have ever made for our wedding. Jessica, Bruce, chef, and the rest of the staff were things of dreams and the best wedding “gift” ever. Jessica was very attentive to every need and helped me work through so many details. I hired her for her day of services as well which meant I had to do nothing except bring her our personalized items. The ceremony, to happy hour (cocktail hour), to reception was seamless and fun for the guests. Any question I had Jessica had an answer. Any request we found a solution. They were beyond accommodating and helpful. I simply cannot recommend them enough! Book your wedding here and you will not regret it! The highest paid complement I got was how many people commented on how “stress free” I looked. It’s because I had golden eagle to stress for me!

For pricing they were beyond the best priced for what you got. The venue cost included all set up and break down. It also includes all tables, linens, table top items, chairs, ceremony space, getting ready space, and more. The price of the food was very reasonable for what you got. Comparable if not cheaper than hiring a caterer. They don’t charge extra for cake cutting like many. Actually, they don’t have any hidden fees. They are very forth coming with everything. We also had our rehearsal dinner here which was amazing and amazing priced. Just perfect priced all the way around.


The venue is beautiful on its own. The food was really good and Jessica is a dream to work with. Just be careful with kitchen staff. We had a few special plates that weren't served and had to "remind" staff of tea and coffee that come with the dinner. besides those hiccups, the reception was beautiful.


Jessica and her staff helped to make this a perfectly beautiful wedding. Our guests raved about the food and lovely setting. Such a great experience!


I first have to say a big huge "Thank you" to Jessica who from day one took care of us. She is so sweet and understanding. She is an absolute gem. She answered all questions and brought my level of stress to practically none. She definitely knows what she is doing. Not sure how I would have been to handle all this without her. She is very professional and caring! All this with a big smile! The place is absolutely beautiful and the wedding was all in all perfect! The food was delicious and all the staff was excellent. I also have to mention Bianca who was there for us the day of the reception. She did a fantastic job! Thank you all for making this day so very special! I even got a big hug from my daughter at the end of the day and said "thank you mommy! It was all perfect" Thanks to Jessica and her crew!


Jessica, the director at GE, was amazing! They were very accommodating and pretty much said "yes" to everything we asked for. I used those 6 years ago for my daughter's wedding reception. This time was my turn--wedding (outside) and reception (inside). Price was more than reasonable, and after venue shopping, I became convinced that GE was the best thing going--aesthetically and economically. Also loved, loved, and loved Bianca--our event hostess. Look no further; GE as a venue is guaranteed quality, professionalism and super courtesy & customer service.


We were searching for a venue that would be perfect for a party, but also met our budget. Golden Eagle was the perfect place for us. The setting was amazing for our August wedding, with a light breeze coming off the lake. Working with Golden Eagle was so easy, it was like a one-stop shop, which was great for planning a wedding when living in a different state! The whole venue was beautiful, the service was great, and the food was spectacular. It was almost too easy to have our wedding at Golden Eagle!


Golden Eagle is a beautiful venue, but what really makes it worth every penny is Michelle! She was so 100% on top of everything leading up to and the day of our wedding, we were truly able to relax and enjoy the day. She was very responsive to my tons of emails and was so unbelievably calm that we knew if by some chance she saw something she hadn't seen before, she'd handle it without us even knowing! The view over the lake at sunset is like no other, our photographers got some truly amazing photos - getting married at Golden Eagle was one of the best decisions we made, you will not be disappointed!


Thank you Michelle Griggs!!

We had the most magical wedding day. Golden Eagle is a beautiful location for a wedding. It is also very convenient and stress free. We hired Michelle to coordinate our day and it couldn't have gone more perfectly. Everything was so beautiful. The food was great and we had loads of fun. Michelle always answered all my questions promptly, she took all the stress out of our big day so we could just relax and enjoy it. I highly recommend Golden Eagle to anyone searching for their perfect wedding location.


If you are looking for a wonderful place to get married I would suggest this place. It is beautiful inside and out. Michelle Griggs did an amazing job with coordinating with my husband and me throughout the entire planning process. Michelle had a lot of the vases etc. I needed which was nice because I didn't have to purchase or bring them to the venue. The bridal suite is amazing and I had one of the best times hanging out with my friends and family there before the wedding!!! Our ideal plan was to get married outside because the scenery is the entire decor you need; however, it unfortunately monsoon on our wedding day, but Michelle's staff did an amazing job moving the ceremony inside and accommodating a 150 guests. Although some guests had to stand, some stated they like the coziness of the room. Also the entire ceremony was flipped to the reception area in less than 45 minutes and the guests were able to enjoy cocktail hour on the veranda. I would recommend this place to anyone, the coziness makes you feel comfortable and the staff is amazing!!!

The Domico's

This is a wonder venue! Our wedding is in December and we have been planning with the head of events she is simply wonderful! She is attentive and quick to respond to all my questions! The venue is pretty inclusive making costs overall very low compared to other venues in the area! I would highly recommend them!


We had our rehearsal dinner in the 'plantation room' hosted by my in laws. We had a wonderful time, food and service were great- BBQ chicken was some of the moistest I've had ever. We had a couple changes to the buffet due to dietary restrictions/preferences- we had no issues or push back by the venue. Michelle G. was awesome to work with, was responsive to communication and was very helpful. We made these plans from another city and hadn't actually seen the facility and it worked out great. The grounds were very pretty; we were able to see the sunset over the lake, great for pictures. We would recommend the facility to anyone.


My husband and I looked at many places, but we couldn't find a venue that we felt was right for us. One of my husband’s colleagues suggested the Golden Eagle Country Club. We went for a visit and we were immediately impressed. The site was absolutely gorgeous and the coordinator Michelle was able to answer every question we had. Ben and I knew after we left that would be the perfect place for our wedding. We also hired Michelle as our coordinator. It was such a blessing to work with someone as on top of things as Michelle. She also helped save us several hundred dollars by letting us use her cake stand, candleholders, and many other miscellaneous items. The day of the wedding went just perfectly. It was so nice to have to not worry about doing any setting up or cleaning up. It took a huge load of Ben and I and our families. The food was excellent. We have received multiple comments from people about how impressed they were with food. I would definitely recommend Golden Eagle Country Club and Michelle Griggs to anyone I know that is getting married or having an event!


The Golden Eagle staff was helpful, caring and work so hard to make the evening wonderful. We had a large wedding (190 people) and the waitstaff served the meals flawlessly. Every comment I heard from our guests was “my steak was perfect”. One guest in the back of the room said to me, “I was the last stake they brought out and I am not complaining because someone has to be last but I never thought my stake would be perfect too!” I was so happy with the wedding, our other daughters will be having their weddings there too. Look no further, you’ve found the perfect wedding venue!

Donna Biggins

We would like to thank all the great staff who took care of all of us at our daughter's wedding. The service was excellent and the food delicious! But all this began when we met with Jessica who went above and beyond all of our expectations. She is the most sweet and patient person I have ever met. This was our first time trying to put together a wedding and she was so helpful in every way. She is a total gem! We would like to thank Bianca who was so sweet and went also above and beyond! She was in charge of everything the day of the wedding and all went very smoothly.

I could continue on and on, on how everything was perfect. I even got a huge hug from my daughter at the end of the day and said "thank you mommy, this was perfect" What more can we ask? The place is absolutely beautiful too and clean! Can't wait to see the pictures! All in all we are very happy and satisfied customers.

Thank you and the Golden Eagle staff for all you do to ensure The Able Trust's events are successful! I really enjoy working with you as you make everything so seamless. The staff did a fantastic job as well.

Kindest regards,
Jessica R. Taylor


I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did to make Katherine and Major's wedding so wonderful! It was absolutely beautiful! You did an amazing job and I can't thank you enough for all of your attention to details.

Tracy Thompson

Dear Michelle,

Thanks for all of your guidance and help to give Kim and Aaron the Beautiful Wedding we had all dreamed of for them. It really was a lovely evening and we appreciate all that you and your staff did to make everything memorable.



I wanted to thank you for the extraordinary job you did for our families as Golden Eagle Wedding Reception Venue Coordinator and Wedding Planner. The location was absolutely beautiful, the reception events and set up ran so smoothly and was a heartwarming and fun celebration for family and friends. Most of all, the bride, Emily, had the utmost confidence and peace of mind you instilled in her so that she could truly enjoy her day as bride. You kept everything running smoothly and let us celebrate a wonderful occasion as though Emily and Justin Reker were royalty!

I appreciate your professionalism, hard work, and expert organizational skills in handling all aspects of the Wiwi-Reker wedding from keeping us informed in the planning stages, to directing the rehearsal, then setting up the banquet, decorations, and coordinating the florists, photographers, DJ, and guests as they arrived. Not to mention the fact of actually lacing Emily into her wedding gown, and later serving Emily and Justin their meal!

The wedding was magical and a memorable event for all of us and we will happily recount our experience with Golden Eagle Country Club and your expertise as wedding coordinator.

Thank you so much!
Lynn Wiwi


I just wanted to thank you again for helping make Emily & Justin's big day a success! We all had a wonderful time (thank to you taking care of everything for us)!!

Emily told us Sunday that it was "the perfect day"! Can't ask for much more than that!

Thank you!

Hello Mrs. Griggs,

Once again you have made our event a memorable one due to your involvement. From my heart to yours along with sincere gratitude from FAMU/FSU HERO, we can truly say everything went smoothly as in previous years and we have you and the staff of Golden Eagle to thank. Due to your willingness to help in every capacity and meeting with the DJ, all of your involvement loan to the success of this event.

It is my hope that this event will continue to be a blessing to the various benefactors both here in Tallahassee and abroad. Again, we thank you for your efforts and I hope you are having a wonderful time on your well deserved vacation. Have a great weekend.

Warm Regards,
Shanalee S. Gallimore, M.Sc.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you so very much for coordinating a perfect wedding and reception last weekend for Jan & Stu. Your organization skills certainly shined, and we were very pleased with the food, service and the bar at Golden Eagle County Club. Hiring you to be our coordinator was one of the best decisions we made throughout the journey of planning a wedding for our daughter.

You set our tables perfectly and offered so much more support than we realized we needed. Golden Eagle was the perfect setting for both the wedding and the reception.

The bride and groom, and both sets of parents all know we collectively hosted a perfect event. We have heard nothing but praise from our family and friend who had such a good time. All the pictures show huge smiles on everyone.

Hope we cleaned up well enough on Sunday - if we forgot anything, just let us know.

Regards- Jim & Maggie


Thank you so much for the extraordinary job you did for Ashley and John's wedding and reception. Your patience, your expertise, your hard work and your optimism (especially about the weather) was so appreciated.

Having grown up in a family who catered and coordinated such events, we have a full appreciation of the hard work, the behind the scenes activity, the planning and the attention to detail needed to have a perfect outcome - and perfect ours was.

Than you for making everything so easy and for making the day so special. No regrets and we would highly recommend and strongly encourage all brides (and their parents) to call "Michelle" if they want a wedding/reception done with class and perfection!

You were great to work with!

Many thanks,
Diane & Mike

Hello Michelle,

I meant to communicate with you on Sunday. Our visit with you on Saturday was perfect in every way - it just couldn't have been nicer. And, you are so wonderful to work with!! As we will be returning in May - on the 11th I believe - I wanted to mention one thing. Golden Eagle is so generous with the portions of the meals. The peachy chicken was probably enough for two people and I even had trouble finishing all my wonderful quiche!


Michelle & Golden Eagle Staff,

Thank you very much for helping me create the most memorable day! Everyone did such an amazing job.

Thank you so very much!!

Ashley & Jeremy Matyjaszek


Words cannot express how grateful we are to have you as our team captain today. You are AMAZING. Thank you for all that you do; we are so blessed.

Michelle & Oliver

Greetings Michelle,

Will and I both want to thank you SO MUCH for the absolutely wonderful wedding reception last weekend 12/8/12. Everything exceeded our expectations and then some! We heard numerous complements regarding the location, decor, and lights (everyone's favorite!) It was truly something special that friends and family traveled both near and far to see.

You were such a blessing and so helpful with everything, and we truly thank you!

We will gladly recommend you to other future wedding couples!

Thank you and we hope you have a fantastic Holiday Season!

Lindsay & Will


Thank you so much for hosting the French Legion of Honor Award Ceremony for our Dad, Lt. Col. Terrell E. Yon (Ret.). The view (you must have a good greens keeper) was great, the setup and decorations were perfect, the meal was served on time and we have had many, many comments on how good the food was. It turned out very special. Thanks for a job well done! The French Dignitaries were also impressed!

Ken Yon

Dear Michelle,

Where to begin? Thank you for everything. Your expertise on so many levels, your eagerness to be of help, and all your guidance along the say. You are The Fairy Godmother of Weddings! We miss you already, but have so many great memories to take with us.

Our wedding quite literally couldn't have happened the way it did without you. It was an absolute dream! I love how much of your caring heart you put into what you do to take the stress off the bride & groom. I hope you know you've made new friends for life!

Thanks for all you do,
Love & Hugs,
Jason & Efia


Thank you so much for all your wonderful, fantastic, warm, friendly (and so much more!) help for our wedding. It was an amazing day and you went above and beyond what was needed. You area a wedding angel!! You tied all our loose ends and we are so grateful to you and your staff.

Mario & Maureen Rivieccio


We had a terrific time. The food, as usual, was outstanding!! What a joy is has been to be a guest at Golden Eagle for all three of our Bridesmaids' Luncheons. The staff has been most accommodating each time and you have been an absolute delight for each of them. I do the planning for twelve or thirteen events here in New Orleans each year and I want you to know that none of them ever go as smoothly as the three that I have done with you at Golden Eagle. Not once have I felt that I need to come early to look things over to do a menu tasting. Each time, everything has been a joy.

Many, many thanks for your great service and your kindness. I do hope that maybe one more occasion will present itself so that I can enjoy Golden Eagle and your hospitality.

Bobbie Whiddon

We had a blast and loved everything. Please tell Chef that we thought the food was GREAT!
Wendy Williams

Just wanted to say thank you soo much for what an amazing job you did on Friday and Saturday. It was soooooo beautiful and everything went sooooo smoothly. Justin and I had a great time!! Thank you so much for all your hard work. Please let chef know how great the food and drinks were. We heard several compliments on it. You guys are so awesome and I am so appreciative.

Thanks again!!!!
Megan Wallace :)

Dear Michelle,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job you did during Heather's wedding. Your expertise and more importantly, your patience, was instrumental in the success of the whole affair. Heather was thrilled, and every guest I spoke to said that it was flawless and each of them had a great time. I cannot express my gratitude enough for making my little girl's wedding the success it was.

Thank you once again for your efforts.

Vince Savoia

Hi Michelle,

Thank you again for everything you did for us as we were planning Lisa and Drew's wedding. You were so helpful and easy to work with, and it was very much appreciated. The wedding was beautiful and couldn't have gone any better, it was perfect.

Thank you,
Becky Rudzik


The dinner was great and did exceed my expectations. It was the best tennis dinner we have had yet at a reasonable price. The wait staff did an excellent job and the food was delicious. We'll certainly be back. Thanks for your excellent assistance in making all the arrangements.

Mel McCarthy


You have a wonderful staff! Our group liked the food and the set up. It was a great party. For sure, we will have other events there.

Pilar Hinchliffe

Hey Michelle,

Just wanted you to know that the luncheon was fabulous. Everything was just beautiful.....ran like clockwork....the waiter was WONDERFUL.....and the food was absolutely DELICIOUS. Everyone raved about it so I just wanted you to know what a pleasure it was to work with you and Golden Eagle. FIRST CLASS!!! Thank you again so much......please add me to your fan club!! :)

Dear Bruce,

I cannot thank you enough for the superb work done by Matthew and Michelle. We had 70 people for our holiday party on Sunday. Michelle planned everything beautifully, to the tiniest detail. It was perfect. Matthew not only saw that everything was in place, but also was constantly vigilant, assisting others who came to the Plantation Room by mistake to find their location, checking and re-checking throughout the entire 3 hours.

Chef DiBella was at his magnificent best. The food was beyond excellent, and my guests could not stop talking about it. It is to your credit that Golden Eagle has the finest professional staff we have ever encountered anywhere, and we thank you so much. I would greatly appreciate your sharing my sentiments with them.

Karen C Dreyfuss, EdD
Gerald O. Dreyfuss, EdD


Thank you for your thoughtfulness and your attention to everything that made the luncheon a great success. I wish you had heard all the compliments about the food, the service and the appointments of the room. And what a delight to have the piano playing carols when we arrived! Of special note was the attention of the two servers who kept the food hot for the musicians until they had finished singing. Whenever anything was needed, they were right there to provide it.

Again, thank you, Golden Eagle Country Club and the staff for making our Christmas luncheon so enjoyable.

Bill Donalson

Dear Michelle,

Michael and I would like to thank you for everything you did for us on our special day. Without your help it wouldn't have been possible. Everything turned out amazing. Thank you again.

Michael and Jennifer Graves


Thank you so much for your support and help in getting the party done for Carlei. It was great! She was totally blown away by the evening and how special everything was decorated. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the service of your staff there was superb. Everything was perfect!

Judy Atkinson


Everything was fantastic at the Rehearsal Dinner for Jamie and Sarah. What a perfect event and it really set the tone for the entire weekend.

Thank you so much for all that you did to help the dinner run so smooth. The servers were excellent. Slide show went smoothly.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I would not hesitate to recommend Golden Eagle to all of my friends. :)

Dear Michelle,
We could not let the day go by without taking the time to tell you how very much we appreciate the wonderful job you did coordinating everything for Emily and BJ's wedding - it was just perfect and beautiful. We were very pleased with the way you handled all the details and allowed us to enjoy the special evening. The country club was such a perfect setting for their reception and the food, chair covers and your attention to creating a wonderful memory for our family was amazing. Thank you so much for dedication and follow through with all the many personal touches you helped create with Emily's vision and ideas.

May you have a spectacular weekend know you are truly appreciated by our entire family.

Pamela and Bill Dunn


How do I begin?! I can't thank you enough for everything! You kept me sane & gave me guidance when I needed it. You were such a pleasure to work with & I'm so thankful you helped us plan one of the most special days of my life. Everything was absolutely gorgeous & the Golden Eagle staff was amazing! Keep in touch!



The banquet was wonderful, as always! We ended up having some extra people show up (players that I couldn't say no to for their sports banquet) and your staff was absolutely wonderful! They worked with the increase in number by putting up 2 more tables, fully set with place settings, etc and the chef accommodated us in adding more rolls, lasagna, etc. They are to be commended in their professionalism and timeliness in making the transition seem flawless to the banquet attendees. Please tell them how much I (we) appreciate them!

Thanks again and I'm sure I will be booking more banquets for next year!
Tanya Wilkins


Words cannot express how grateful we are for how you handled our wedding. From the very beginning, your knowledge & professionalism impressed us. Our wedding was more than we could have imagined thanks to you & the awesome staff. Guests are still telling us what an amazing time they had. Brad and I appreciate all of your work, from coordinating, decorating, executing my vision & everything else! I'll be sending you pictures soon!

LaKeisha & Brad


We wanted to thank you very much for everything you did for us for our wedding. From our first meeting to the end of the night on our wedding, you were amazing! You helped to make our day very special. We sincerely appreciate all the hard work and helpful advice you gave us.

We are so glad we picked Golden Eagle and you for our wedding!

Chris & Shelby Duncan


Earl and I just wanted to say Thank You!!

We were more than satisfied with how everything turned out!

Thank you and the Golden Eagle staff for being so accommodating and helpful! We couldn't have picked a better venue for our wedding!

Thanks again!
Earl and Tina Russ :)

Dear Golden Eagle,

We held our daughter's wedding and reception at Golden Eagle Country Club in mid February. We just wanted to let someone know what a wonderful experience it was. We held our breath for nice weather so that we could have the wedding ceremony outside at your new pergola. The weather was quite cooperative and it was a beautiful wedding. Having the pergola with all the nature surrounding it made decorations minimal. We used both the Magnolia Room and the Plantation Room for our reception. They were exquisite! We had a dance floor, a DJ, hors d'oeuvres tables and almost 130 guests but it never felt crowded. With a group that size, you expect "banquet" food. Our meal was anything but that. Everything was piping hot when it was served and it all was served in a very timely manner. And the quality and quantity of the meal was so much more than we expected. There was so much food that many of us at my table just couldn't eat it all. Everything was scrumptious!

The morning before the wedding, the groom's mother went out to Golden Eagle to check everything out. I got a call from her mid-morning. She couldn't say enough about how beautiful everything looked and what a great decision we had made picking Golden Eagle for our daughter's special day. All night long I heard the same feelings from many of our guests. We have even received a number of notes since the wedding stating the same sentiments.

We did hire Michelle as our wedding planner and she did a wonderful job. She is such a pleasant, caring person and very helpful. Our daughter lives in Tallahassee but we live in Virginia, so we had to make all our plans long distance. Thank goodness for email! Michelle was quick to answer all our questions and resolve any situations that arose; before, during and after the wedding.

To sum it all up: The place is gorgeous (inside & out), the food was delicious and plentiful, the service was impeccable, parking was great, everyone was very helpful and the price was more than reasonable. The morning after the event I asked my daughter if there was anything she would have done differently. She said "absolutely nothing - everything was perfect!" Golden Eagle Country Club and staff were a big part of making her feel that way. Thank you for making her special day SO special. We would HIGHLY recommend Golden Eagle to anyone needing a venue for any event.

Allen & Diane Taylor

We really appreciate and enjoyed everything about the Retreat. We especially wish to commend you and the entire staff for the exemplary customer service and care shown throughout the entire event. Thomas was always at our service, and the food was excellent! One of our topics was "WOW the customer!," and you all were perfect examples. Thanks again for aiding in our success, and we look forward to working with you again in the very near future.

Regina Deavens

Hi Michelle!

Before we leave for our two week honeymoon, I just wanted to say THANK YOU soooooo much for everything! Thank you for your patience, your professionalism and just getting the job done by any means necessary. I love that about you! Although the rain didn't allow us to have the outdoor ceremony we wanted, we still think everything turned out beautifully!


Hi Michelle,

Everything was perfect!! The food was "delicious" (including the hors d'oeuvres-bruschetta was outstanding!). Your staff was incredible. Very accommodating and gave excellent customer service. At times it was a little hectic for me but that is to be expected when you are coordinating the event. So I hope I wasn't a bother to your staff.

Again, thank you for your great service and I will definitely and highly recommend the country club to my friends. I will definitely be back!! :)

Kudos to Golden Eagle!

Sandra Chin

Hello Michelle. Devin and I just want to say "Thank You" again for everything you did to make our wedding day special. Everything was beautiful and it was everything we imagined! We appreciate all of your help and couldn't have found a better place to have our wedding and reception. Thank you for everything, we couldn't have done it without you...we will never forget you and we will always recommend you and the country club to all that want to have a fantastic ceremony!

Ty & Devin


Once again thank you for everything! My wedding was a huge success thanks to you! Everything was beautiful and everyone had an excellent time. Everyone said it was one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to.

Sunny :)

Thank you so much for all of your help in making our wedding reception spectacular! Everything was beautiful & exceeded our expectations! I don't know what we would have done without you...

Thanks again.

Christen & Edward Von Hertsenberg


Thanks so much for all of your help with the reception! Several people commented on how beautiful the room looked, and how wonderful the food tasted. I don't know how many people said it was the best food of any wedding they had been to. I appreciate all you did. I told several people as soon as the wedding wasa over I knew I could relax because I knew you would handle everything else. I will recommend you whenever I get a chance.

Thanks again,

Dear Michelle,

Thank you so much for giving us such a beautiful reception at Golden Eagle Country Club on June 26, 2010. We so appreciate all of your help and hard work that made our wedding reception a dream come true. The room was perfectly decorated, the food tasted great and everyone had a good time. We are so grateful to you for such an amazing day!

Julio and Christina

Michelle, I just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work that led to a phenomenal wedding for Jennifer & Jeff! The day totally exceeded all our expectations!! Everything was perfect - gorgeous setting, excellent food, everything absolutely fantastic in every way!
Thanks again!

Drue Shacklock

I wanted to give you a very sincere thank you for everything you did for Jeff and I. Our wedding was truly perfect- we had such an amazing time! We could not have done it without all of your help and guidance. You and your staff made the day run so smoothly and I appreciate that more than I can say. I will not hesitate to recommend Golden Eagle to anyone getting married in the Tallahassee area- it was wonderful working with you!

Thank you so much!

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for everything you did to help us with the planning and execution for Jon and Elizabeth's wedding. Actually, thanks is not enough - You were there for us when we needed calmness and handled everything which resulted in a wonderful experience for our entire family and some respite for Kathie and I that we desperately needed. If you ever need a recommendation please feel free to pass our contact information on. Also, kudos' to Matthew and the staff who in your absence on the wedding date ensured everything was perfect; Matthew was the consummate professional even as he had to deal with an unfortunate incident with one of the guest over a rejected credit card (at my urging Kathie and I paid the bill). The staff was also very professional and pleasant during the entire affair. Kudos also to your recommended photographer and DJ who together made the entire evening a pleasant experience for all.

Hope you enjoyed the cookies,
Tim and Kathie Decent

I feel like I have so much to thank you for that thank you doesn't even come close! But, thank you for everything! From the many conversations we had with me and my parents to the wonderful staff you have! Everything was perfect on our Wedding Day and it is all thanks to you and your staff! The staff was wonderful and you couldn't ask for a better team! Thank you again!

Jon & Elizabeth Cole

The wedding went wonderfully! I'm sure you heard that there was a short rain delay, but that ended up working out a little better because it cooled things off and it allowed for people who were running late to get there for the ceremony. We both had a fantastic time and your staff was really, really helpful - everything was so smooth and seamless! Thanks for all of your help!


Thank you so much for everything. The staff did an amazing job setting up the wedding and it was more perfect than I could ever imagine! Everything that you guys did came out perfect. Everything was great and we could have had no better wedding day. Thank you so much for being so helpful and being so prompt with answering my questions. Any time I hear someone mentioning planning their wedding I will make sure I recommend the Golden Eagle Country Club.

Thanks for all your help in the planning of the dinner (Rehearsal Dinner). It couldn't have gone better. The food was great and everyone there was very nice and very professional. Just what you would expect at Golden Eagle. I sure am happy we had it there.

Thanks again,
Dave Montrois

We wanted to say thank you for all of your efforts to make Brittany's wedding as special as it was. You did a beautiful job with all of the details from smallest to largest. You were also so pleasant to work with! Matt and Brittany will always look back at their special day with fond memories thanks to you!

Thank you for all of your hard work to assure a magical day for them!

Hi Michelle. Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say thank you for everything you did for us with our reception. It was perfect! People can't stop talking about how nice it was. Greg did an excellent job and the dance floor was hopping! People were dancing that we never expected to dance. The service was excellent and attentive and all of the little details that we added was done perfectly and the food was fantastic. We never imagined how incredible the reception would turn out to be and it really made our wedding day even more special.

Thank you!!!
Vicki and Jimmie Crain

I wanted to drop you a note about our luncheon on Saturday. We had one glitch with the table arrangement in the rooms but that was taken care of quickly. I had many compliments on the club and the wonderful food. Thank you so much for you and your staff's hard work we really appreciated it. Please read one of the emails I received from an out of town guest that attended on Saturday.

"The luncheon was beautiful yesterday. Driving through that part of Tallahassee and seeing all the beautiful old oak trees with the moss hanging like lace, the winding roads and all that color! The Country Club was in a beautiful setting wedged between two lakes, and every room in the clubhouse we peeked in was breathtaking.

We enjoyed the luncheon getting to know new people, the food was delicious and the dessert was a killer! It was so good; I couldn't believe all those flavors in one bite. The chef and baker are to be commended. The service was impeccable. Our server never left us with an empty glass of delicious fresh ice tea, or placing each course down with ease and grace."

Thank you,

I just wanted to thank you for helping everything about the rehearsal dinner that you were responsible go perfectly.

Your quick response to questions and requests prior to the event was excellent and gave us a lot of welldeserved confidence in your abilities. The florist you recommended was excellent and reasonably priced. The setup was exactly as promised and looked great! Your attention to requests from the ladies visiting before the event was courteous and timely. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Everything about the food and location can be ranked "10" on a scale of 1-10.

I'm very glad that we had the event at the Golden Eagle Golf and Country Club and would gladly recommend your services and location to anyone.

I could not have pulled off that party without you - and it was a magnificent party! Everything was beautiful and the GE staff was incredible. Emily danced her heart out! She had the time of her life and I can't thank you enough for that. You made everything so easy for me with all your organizational skills and recommendations and I'll never forget you for that! Also, the man who directed everything on Saturday night wore a pink tie for the event!!! He was so good to me.

Thank you again, Michelle, for everything.

Thank you for your expertise and excellent handling. You did a terrific job and helped Barry and me enjoy Lauren's wedding. Many commented on how lovely the setting is and how sparkly and inviting our tables were.

Again, thank you very much.
Joann Sapolsky

I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day! Thank you for everything that you did for me. All of the stress and drama that led up to it was worth it. I could have done without it though! Jesse and I had the best time and everything was amazing,

Again, thank you!
Ali & Jesse

"Thank you" for everything that you did for us and to make Jessica and Robert's day very special. Everything turned out great, the day was beautiful. Thanks ever so much for your help.

Irv & Deb Wadsworth

Thank you very much for helping the YMCA host a great lunch event for our past chairmen of the board of directors. It was a gorgeous day, showing off the Golden Eagle golf course and country club to its best advantage. The room set up, table arrangement, food and service were all perfect and appreciated.

Thanks for your help. It's good to find out how nice it is to work with Golden Eagle and to attend a group event here.

Andrea Chapman

Thank you and the superb staff and Golden Eagle. All of the guests had a wonderful time and loved the atmosphere. Thank you for allowing us to set up early. Everyone loved the food and we really appreciated the Chef speaking directly with Ross and I to make sure everything was perfect!
Great job!

All the best,
Brittany and Ross

It's been a few weeks and Rob and I have begun to settle into our new life. I realize that my entire wedding day was a complete blur. But as pictures start to come in and I see how wonderful everything turned out, I realize now even more that I could never have done it without you. Your hard work, as well as your quelling of my unreasonable paranoia was absolutely invaluable.

Thank you so much for helping to make my special day as wonderful and memorable as it could be.

Thank you again for all your help. Everyone involved was completely complimentary of their dealings with you and all the rest of the Golden Eagle staff.

Your hard work did not go unappreciated...

This may seem like an odd letter to be receiving, but I have been talking to two friends whose daughters have gotten married this year, one here in Atlanta and the other in Chicago. We went to the one in Chicago...and while it was a much larger affair than ours (300) the reception was held in, what I was told, was a very exclusive club. The room, while being VERY large, had no atmosphere and the affair was very poorly managed.

I think back to Katy's wedding and how beautiful the Golden Eagle Country Club looked, how wonderful everything was timed (at this last wedding no one even noticed the couple have their dance because it was while everyone was visiting after dinner and it was never announced) and I think back to how you had the father-daughter dance as one of the first things and what a highlight what was with the song, and you had the couples dance early, another highlight, and they both were 'announced.' I, also, remember how you made the reception so easy for me by taking care of every detail. And the food!!!! I was able to make a direct comparison with this Chicago wedding since they had the same menu...the filet and salmon...neither of which had any flavor and were not served with those delicious mashed potatoes and vegetables. We received so many compliments on the food. In fact, we received so many compliments on the entire affair...the food, how pretty the reception room looked, and the gorgeous outdoor setting. Many, many people have told us it was one of the most beautiful weddings because of the uniqueness of the setting.

YOU and your staff and the Golden Eagle Country Club met and exceeded everything we were hoping for. I just wanted to tell you, again, how lovely everything was and how very pleased we were.

Michelle, thank you and the Golden Eagle for making such a special day even more memorable. Sincerely,
Janet Trelease

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the wedding and reception. Everything went off without a hitch and we were thrilled for that. If something went wrong, we sure didn't have a clue. We can't thank you enough for all you did for us during this whole process. You made it so the preparation wasn't as stressful as I thought it would be.

You run a very professional operation and we know that it wouldn't have gone off that way without your help. You were very gracious to everyone involved and you definitely know exactly what needs to be done and not done. Everyone at Golden Eagle was so courteous and professional and the girls working the tables were exceptional as well. No one ever had to ask for anything and they were always there if you did need something. You can be certain that you and Golden Eagle will be highly recommended by us to anyone who is planning a wedding.

Thanks again for everything.
Carol Jimmerson

Dear Michelle,

On behalf of Alpha Phi Sigma at Florida State University, I wanted to personally thank you for coordinating our banquet. The food was excellent, the room was set very nicely and the staff were awesome. The members were very impressed and everyone had a great time. This is definitely the best banquet that Alpha Phi Sigma has ever put together since I have been a member. Thank you for making this experience so wonderful for our organization.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you so very much for all your help and direction for my wedding. I am so happy I picked Golden Eagle for our reception! You made planning so easy, and everyone could not stop talking about how beautiful the Country Club is. Again, thank you for everything!

Best regards,
Mary Katharine Lawler

The post-Founders Day avalanche of admin requirements has been heavy but I couldn't let another day slip away without first saying what a wonderful time our society had a Golden Eagle last Friday!

From inception to completion it was a pleasure. You and your staff were there to accommodate us at every turn, in every circumstance. Tables were beautiful, the setting gorgeous, the atmosphere exactly what we had all hoped.

Please pass my compliments as well to Matt and the crew who staffed the event. Comments I've heard have been universally positive. Compliments as well to the chef and kitchen crew - the food was excellent!

I wish you every success in the interim...and look forward to doing more business together in the future.
