Not knowing what we wanted for a wedding venue, we chose to visit over a dozen and in doing so we narrowed down to what we liked. When we saw the DeerCreek Country Club, we just loved the ballroom as it was just renovated and really needed nothing else. From the crystal chandeliers, the sheer volume of the room, the exquisite wall decorations and carpeting made this room fit for a royal wedding – so why not ours. Not to mention the exterior grounds, the lattice work and the waterfall scene made for the perfect ceremony and picturesque settings.
We would be remiss to forget to mention Lisa Gjonaj and her amazingly attentive staff at the DCCC. We were sold on the venue’s ambience and regal looks but the staff at the DCCC was very attentive. Our guests commented on how every little thing was looked after, if something was missing, the staff took care of it. As the bride and groom, we had on several occasions a waiter ask us if we needed anything from the bar, and they brought us back several drinks – definitely helps when time is of the essence.
Not knowing what to expect, the taste test was pleasantly surprising after hearing horror stories of food tasting bland or dried out. That was not the case at the DCCC. All 3 of our menu choices were quite flavorful. So we kept our choices of the chicken marsala, beef tenderloin with peppercorn and the bourbon glazed salmon. The taste test made our choice quite simple – we had to have a platter of all of them at our sweetheart table which Lisa made happen. The food was delicious and we heard many compliments on the food selection. From the different courses, to the main dishes, to the crepe station after dinner, all the food was terrific and memorable.
The DCCC was a terrific value with the ambience and royal treatment by Lisa Gjonaj and her entire staff, easily the best choice for our wedding and yours.

After spending much of a day going in and out of different venue locations, I went into Deer Creek. I didn't know what to make of my first impression of the place because it was under construction but I did know one thing, Lisa made me feel the most comfortable out of anyone that I had talked to that day. I soon brought my fiance (now husband :) ) to the location and both of our mothers. At this point, Deer Creek was undergoing their $1.3 million renovation and it was evident at how elegant the new room was going to be. We quickly signed the contract and the planning began.
Throughout the planning process, Lisa was fabulous. She quickly responded to emails and always seemed to be available whenever we stopped in. Always positive and full of ideas. When we came back in November (our wedding was in May), the room was complete and words can't describe the elegance and beauty this room had become. From the glass windows to the high ceilings with big chandeliers, this room and location was perfect. I have a feeling for the very reasonable price, Deer Creek Country Club will soon be one of the most sought out venues in South Florida (not to mention that every other one of my vendors-photo, dj, officiant, flowers- loved coming and working at Deer Creek!).
When it came time for our big day, I knew everything was in good hands. Lisa immediately greeted us and got us into the bridal suite while the groomsmen went around doing small tasks. Lisa made sure that I had something to eat before everything started and handled all the other vendors and got them set up.
We had out ceremony outside and for the end of May, it was very hot (but you can't really expect anything else for South Florida!). All of our guests though were able to stay inside up until right before the ceremony. One of the highlights of every guest was the food. We did a brunch reception and the mix between breakfast and lunch was quite possibly the best wedding food that I ever tasted. Another compliment was that the servers other staff members were very friendly and made sure everyone was having a good time.
If you are looking for a venue for your ceremony and/or reception, Deer Creek should be on the top of your list. The outside blue of the golf club doesn't hold a candle to anything inside. For the views, newly renovated rooms, outside elegance for pictures, friendliness of staff and wonderful director of events (Lisa), you will not have a better experience.
Deer creek helped me to achieve my perfect day time brunch country club reception!!!
After looking for a wedding venue I chose Deer Creek. I must say the grounds for the ceremony were absolutely beautiful and made for gorgeous wedding pictures. The Key West room is absolutely stunning with large golden chandeliers and beautiful french doors. The staff is attentive and helped me with my broken bustle on my dress. Lisa Gjonaj, Giselle and Zorhaida made my day a memorable one and I would definitely recommend this venue to any bride.
Thank you for the kind words Nadine! Best of luck to you and the entire family! :)
My daughter had her wedding here last Sunday and everything was just beautiful. When my daughter and her fiancé started looking at venues they decided to start with Deer Creek Country Club. After visiting with Lisa they decided they didn't need to look any further. Lisa was wonderful and worked with us every step of the way. The grounds are just beautiful, a perfect place for a wedding ceremony and reception. Lisa was out of town on the day of my daughter's wedding but she assured us that her Assistant "Z" would be there to set up and take care of all of our needs.
Z was wonderful. She was very calm and was there to see all of our needs were met. She went above and beyond to make this day special for our family. The food was of the highest quality and everyone raved about the beef tenderloin, Ahi tuna, and turkey and the delicious pastas! I highly recommend DCCC for any wedding. Our relatives from New York said that it was an amazing wedding, they felt like they were in paradise. Make sure you visit with Lisa and Z before you commit to a wedding venue. You will love Deer Creek Country Club and your pictures will tell your beautiful love story!!!!
Venue was beautiful and reasonably priced. Lisa the banquet manager was great. She was helpful and smart.
Bad: deal with Lisa up until wedding and then get her assistant, Z, who was somewhat incompetent and unprofessional. She trouble the groom over finding chairs and the food and then stood over us to hurry up our last dance even though. Our times wasn't even up. They served the wrong food and said they ran out of the steak. They didn't take responsibility for their mistakes.
After a long arduous journey in search of a venue for our wedding, a lady I was speaking with told me about Deer Creek Country Club.
On dropping by to look at the amenities, I was encouraged as it was reasonably priced, the staff were extremely helpful, and it was a convenient location. We were able to view the newly renovated Biscayne room which has a beautiful ambiance. The outdoor surroundings were bursting with color and there is more than one option for your ceremony location as well. The Key West room (once completed) was beyond our wildest dreams. Never did I imagine the final product to be quite what it was....breathtaking!
The food was tasty, well presented, and there was a great selection. The most talked about decoration was not anything I spent hours making, but the fruit display that Deer Creek provided - the fruit carvings were pieces of art, not to mention fresh and delicious!
I have to say, besides the convenient location and the affordable packages offered, all the staff at DC are very professional and friendly. The director of catering, Lisa, is a bright star! Her "can do" attitude and constant attention to the bride and groom really made us feel special leading up to our event and especially on our wedding day. She was well prepared and always in contact. Whenever I needed to stop in, or had a question, she would make time to see us or respond very quickly by phone or through email. I cannot express how appreciative and blessed we were to have her with us on our day. The entire experience was flawless, so much so that I plan on having other special events there.
Thank you so much to all the staff who made our evening more than we had hoped for.
The team at Deer Creek really made our wedding day very special. From our first visit with Lisa to tour the facility, we knew this was the place for us! The amazing waterfall and patio is really what drew us to Deer Creek. Once we saw the new renovations of the ballroom we were SOLD!
Lisa was there for us every step of the way to ensure we were on track with our planning (which really put me at ease since I have never planned a wedding! :) )
The day of the event Oksana (banquet manager) was a great help to us as well. From my first step to the alter to our exit for the evening the exceptional staff was right there to make sure everything was perfect (we even had our own server!). The food was fantastic (hats off to the chef) and the white glove butler service really made a great impression on our guests.
Thank you Lisa & team for blessing us with a beautiful day that we will never forget!
We chose Deer Creek for the beautiful garden which was amazing for our photos however the service was horrible. The night of our rehearsal the catering manager was meeting with a different bride instead of setting up for us. Then the day of my wedding my husband had to do all the setting up while arguing with Deer Creek about where to place the tables. And to make the night even better our bartender was serving well liquor to our guests when we paid extra for the top shelf. So our guests were served that for over two hours. My husband had to scream and yell at the catering manager to get the well liquor out from behind the bar. To make it even worst the bartender was horrible to our guests. Everyone complained how rude he was, he even had the nerve to give attitude to my husband and I. I could not believe how he treated our guests. Besides the service lacking, the food was not that good. My guests which are not snobby individuals all said the food was very bland no flavor. The only food that was complimented was the cake which was done by an outside vendor.
We married on 12/21/12. We booked one year in advance. The site just had a renovation, where the main reception room (Key West Room) was knocked down and rebuilt. The facilities for both the cocktail room, the reception room, and the garden outside are therefore brand new as of 11/15/12. The management also changed. Lisa, the venue coordinator, was very helpful throughout the planning. We chose a sit down menu for 60 guests at a cost of about 5500 which included venue, chairs outside for ceremony, valet, bridal room, salad, main dish, and the cake via Eda's Cakes. We chose to excluded liquored beverages, so they served soft drinks and complimentary champagne only for the toast. Altogether we are very satisfied with Lisa's help, the quality of the venue, and the food. We as an Asian-Hispanic couple are not much for the European food served at weddings, so we will say it was "ok". Great quality but not what we would ideally serve given our tastes in food.
On the day of the wedding there were 2 snafus, the first having to do with coordination with the DJ (could not find appropriate outlets), and the second one regarding time available for us to set up. We scrambled with only 1.5 hours to set up the decorations prior to the wedding start, so we were anxious during that period until things got started.
Otherwise, I'd highly recommend this place.
this place was so beautiful-the outdoor waterfall and patio area were perfect for our tropical theme. the staff were all curteous and helpful and Cindy and Michele who run the catering/weddings went above and beyond in helpfulness. we would get married there again in a heartbeat!!
We were married at Deercreek in December 2011. We had our ceremony in front of their beautiful water fall and cocktail/ reception in side. The location was very easy to work with. They were very helpful and accommodating to all my wants. They provided us with a wedding coordinator that day, and he directed everything and made sure everything was handled so I didn’t have to worry about a thing!The oricing was average compared to local vendors.
Cindy and the staff at Deer Creek were nothing short of spectacular. I was the typical bride changing things every five minutes and Cindy was so nice and everything was perfect. She took care of dealing with my other vendors and I was able to show up and just get married without worrying about anything!!
Both my wedding and reception were held at the same place. The staff was excellent, the food - especially the bruschetta - was incredible! The pictures came out beautiful.;Watch out for ants on the hilly part of the lawn/green right across from the back door entrance. :D
I loved Vincent, he was like our 'wedding coordinator' at the facility where we were married. I also loved how there was a waterfall in the background of where we were married.
Outdoor area was beautiful, food was fantastic, staff was great
There was lush tropical landscape for photos (including a waterfall), separate rooms for hors d'ouvres and dinner, a lovely bridal suite in the bathroom, outstanding food, great director (Vince), very accommodating, good recommendations for other vendors;Be wary of the photographers they recommend
