Our wedding reception at Groveland Fairways couldn’t have been any more perfect. From the moment we walked in to the foyer and met Liz, my now husband and I knew it was exactly the right location. We planned our wedding remotely from Atlanta, Georgia and Liz was more than willing to connect via phone, text, or email whenever we had a question. She was more than happy to work with my parents who live in the area, too, to handle some of the details that my husband and I were not able to manage giving the long distance.
The entire planning process with Groveland was smooth and easy given Liz’s mastery of her profession. She is amazing at what she does! Never once did we worry that something would fall off her radar and we relied on her suggestions and thoughts on many of the other vendors we chose for our day. Liz instilled full confidence that our wedding reception at Groveland Fairways was going to be perfect…and it was!
On our wedding day, when we first arrived at Groveland Fairways after our ceremony, Liz gave us a moment to gather our thoughts and re-compose ourselves…then she brought us into the dining room and allowed us some time on our own to take in the beautiful environment/atmosphere she had helped to create for our reception. We were awestruck! We had added LOTS of little details and DIY projects to our day and Liz went above and beyond to ensure that they were all set up and executed flawlessly. Furthermore, she was continuously checking on us, our families and wedding party, and our guests throughout the evening to be sure we had everything we needed and to keep the event moving as planned.
My husband and I are still reliving the memory of our wedding day in our heads…the whole experience was like a fairy tale dream for us. The entire Groveland Fairways venue, including the patio and green space outside, are lovely and created such a beautiful and enjoyable atmosphere for our guests. Liz and the Groveland Fairways family truly added to our happiness (and the happiness of many others) and the beauty of our day. We so deeply appreciate the extra mile(s!) they went to make our day just perfect!
I don't even know where to begin with this review. My contact with Liz started in March of 2012. My fiance and I were planning a September 2013 wedding and had only visited one other venue before visiting the Fairways. We were immediately so comfortable with Liz and loved the venue. After another visit, we decided to put down a deposit.
What I didn't know at that time was just how easy Liz was going to make, literally EVERYTHING, for me. She was incredibly helpful, frank, and attentive in each step of the planning. And the day of? I can't even express how grateful I was to have her there. We didn't have to worry about a single thing. Liz in herself is worth every penny of the venue cost (which, by the way is EXTREMELY reasonable).
My husband and I looked at several different venues but knew as soon as we walked into Groveland Fairways that this was the place that we were going to be married. Everything about our first meeting made us completely comfortable. Liz was great from that first meeting until the end of the night meeting all of my expectations and beyond. I couldn't have asked for anything more from her. Every email and phone call was answered in a timely manner, every worry was calmed, every dream and vision was played out perfectly for our wedding day. Many of our wedding guests have commented how elegant, gorgeous and laid back our wedding venue was. Which is exactly the feel that we were going for. I was able to throw in a little bit of a Red Sox theme without going overboard with the help of Liz.
On the day of our wedding both Liz and Jordan did a great job making sure that our wedding party were where they needed to be when they needed to be there. Both were in the background but close enough so if there was a problem I knew exactly where to find them.
Everyone went above and beyond to make this a special day for us!!!! And we can't thank them enough for all they did.
As a new bride, on a strict budget I was bent on sticking to my guns! Groveland was the second place I looked and the last place I looked. I fell in love with everything as Liz went through room by room describing wha my wedding day could be if I had it there at groveland fairways. Their landscaping was under construction and they were removing the driving range at the time I visited and through all that Liz was able to help me picture what the vision was for the future of the venue. Liz was nothing short of amazing! As busy as wedding season can be she made me and my now husband feel as though we were the only ones that mattered, truly making our days up to and our wedding day as and even more special than I could imagine! They take pride with every detail you can or may not think of, set everything up making your visions truly come true! It rained all morning on our wedding day which hindered us from having our ceremony in their beautiful outside area however Liz called me to check in when the rain stopped and made their fireside room beyond beautiful for our ceremony! Liz and her team are truly amazing and truly are what sold me on the venue from my first visit! Thank you so much to Liz, Jordan and vinwood caterers for making our day a lifetime memory!

Love, love, love this place. The staff at Groveland Fairways really love what they do and it shows! Liz and Jordan are absolutely wonderful and always get back to you within a reasonable time via email or phone. The site itself is breathtaking and the service is amazing. Professionalism, quality, cost effective. Everyone and everything here is worth every penny. I would recommend Groveland to anyone!
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Groveland Fairways on August 29, 2014. We had visited several venues prior to Groveland Fairways and had just not found the place to have our special event. As soon as we met Liz (the event coordinator) and viewed the grounds we knew that this was the perfect location to have our wedding. Liz was phenomenal throughout the entire process. I’m not much of a planner and tend to be indecisive but from the start it was obvious Liz was passionate, organized and she really helped make our day as special as it was. Our guests are still talking about how fantastic the event was. We had our ceremony onsite, outside and our cocktail hour was on the patio. The staff at the Fairways lit the outdoor fireplace at night which many of our guests enjoyed while others enjoyed spending time in the photo booth in the fireside room and others spend their time on the dance floor. We had Vinewood cater our wedding and were thrilled with the stations that we chose. Liz and her staff were so accommodating throughout the day and it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without their help. If you are looking for a gorgeous venue that offers the option of onsite ceremonies, an exceptional staff and beautiful grounds than Groveland Fairways is the choice for you! Liz and her staff will help you throughout the entire process and make sure your day is as beautiful as you imagined. We had an absolutely perfect wedding, and it couldn’t have been without the help of Liz and Jordan. Choosing the Fairways for our wedding venue was one of the best choices we made during our planning process. Liz, her staff, the venue and the day surpassed our expectations and for that we will be forever grateful! Thank you Liz and Jordan for making our day extraordinary it is a day we will truly always cherish!
We visited a few wedding venues and this was the one that won us over with its beautiful yet private grounds and gorgeous hall, it felt like a very beautiful home the first time we walked in and Liz made us feel very "at home." She really got along well with my mother, who can be difficult to please, but this is just a testament to how wonderful Liz really is at what she does. She always made us feel like she was giving us the best advice. She really did an amazing job on the day of to make sure that everything went so smoothly and was so pleasant and wonderful during the process. The venue and the day overall surpassed all of my expectations and I had the best day ever! Thank you for everything!
Liz won us over the first time we met with her - she was so easy to talk to and organized and we knew she would go above and beyond to make our wedding perfect (and she did!) We received so many compliments on how wonderful the wedding was and how smoothly everything went. Liz made sure that everything went according to schedule and she (and her staff) were wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process. The outdoor ceremony area and patio are beautiful and were perfect for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything was, it far exceeded my expectations!
I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking! Not only for the great venue and location, but Liz (the coordinator) is amazing to work with. Being our first wedding we had no idea what we were doing. She was always available to answer questions and keep us on track. Our wedding day was phenomenal! We couldn't have pictured it anywhere else. We planned over 2 years and on the day they pulled everything together exactly how we wanted. It was better than we could have hoped! All of our guests were amazed at the venue. It truly is a hidden gem!
Groveland Fairways is an absolutely stunning venue to hold your wedding. Liz, the main coordinator is absolutely fantastic! As soon as we contacted Liz about the showing, we knew we were in for a treat. She is very easy to speak with and answers all questions quickly and concisely, whether by phone or email. We worked with Liz from November 2012 until our wedding in June 2014 and during that time we understood how passionate she is about making sure every detail at your wedding is absolutely perfect. She is the consummate professional! Jordan, the second coordinator, whom we met at the rehearsal, was excellent and very helpful during the wedding.
Groveland Fairways is a beautiful venue and with a great coordinator it makes it even better. When we first entered Groveland Fairways we could tell that this venue was very different from the 10 venues we toured prior. It is exceptionally clean with not a speck of dirt or dust anywhere. The air inside is clean and refreshing. The reason for this is that they clean immediately after every wedding and nothing is left to sit until the next day.
At Groveland Fairways, there is a choice between two preferred caterers. Liz highly recommended Vinwood Catering to cater a gluten free wedding. Between Liz and Vinwood, the menu turned out amazing and everyone enjoyed the night. If you are looking for a venue and caterer that really knows dietary concerns and allergies, this is the place for you!
We were planning an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour, and if rain had been in the forecast, there is a gorgeous space called the Fireside Room for an indoor ceremony. It was the only indoor space we would even consider for a ceremony. It has a stunning fireplace to compliment the space. Groveland Fairways is modern and has a very homey feeling. The owners of the property are always making improvements and are the nicest people. When we booked Groveland in 2012 we knew it was an amazing venue, but it got even better as they continually made improvements. The new patio and outdoor fire place is an amazing area to share with your guests and feels just right.
We had an absolutely perfect wedding day, and it couldn’t have been without the help of Liz and Jordan. Choosing Groveland Fairways for our wedding venue was one of the best choices we made during our wedding planning. If you are looking for a gorgeous wedding venue with an experienced and exceptional staff with a small-town feel, then Groveland Fairways is the place for you. Do not think twice about meeting with Liz at the venue. Once you meet with her and tour the grounds, you’ll realize there isn’t a better venue around. Thank You so much Liz and Groveland Fairways for the absolutely amazing wedding day!
Groveland is a beautiful venue but Liz (the coordinator) is the reason I chose this place. She is so helpful; getting back to you in less than 24 hours, making suggestions to make your day even better and best of all taking responsibility for making the venue beautiful day of so you don't have to stress because you know you're in capable hands.
I had never been to Groveland Fairways and my fiancé and I had already decided on another venue the day before I went to visit. When I walked into this place (to meet with a caterer)...I just felt at home. It was so warm and inviting and I assumed far above our budget. Just out of curiosity, I asked what they charge and if our date was available. I was shocked (seriously shocked) with the response and immediately called my fiancé to see if he'd be okay with a change of plans. The value was amazing. I was introduced to Liz who was energetic, friendly, attentive and so helpful. We were not sure how we would be received by any venue as we were trying to create a very inexpensive and fun wedding with a sophisticated and warm environment. Liz did not seem to have any problem accommodating our burger and chicken finger/muppet/Disney/Yankee v Red Sox themed wedding and she was definitely able to make it all look very elegant and fun. I would highly recommend this venue to any couple. The staff was excellent and the value was extraordinary.
After looking at a few wedding venues and not being impressed, we were hesitant to check out any more. The moment we walked in to Groveland Fairways and met with Liz we knew it was a perfect fit! Liz was friendly, professional, and SUPER responsive! Despite my endless questions, she would always email me back with her suggestions and recommendations within 24 hours and even called me when the venue decided to no longer use a specific vendor that I had been thinking about using. We booked our venue over 1 1/2years in advance due to my hectic schedule and Liz continued to check in periodically to make sure we were on track with our plans. In addition, she made a point to meet with us in person 1 month before and a week before the wedding to review the details, update and make changes, and remind me of any tasks that still needed to be addressed. The night of our wedding she was calm and moved effortlessly throughout the evening helping whenever needed, she even stepped in (professionally) when she could see I was frustrated with another vendor. Liz and her assistant, Jordan, were wonderful during the wedding and did a great job setting up the candy bar as well as taking it down and packaging everything away for us at the end of the night. Thank you for making our wedding amazing!
I cannot say enough about Groveland Fairways. When my husband and I were searching for a venue for our 9-28-13 wedding we walked in and "felt like we were home". It is an absolutely stunning site. It feels so warm and cozy while still being elegant and classy. The wedding coordinator, Liz is a dream to work with. She was there for me every step of the way and is simply amazing in helping to set up my many DIY projects and to make my vision come alive. She's very professional, full of advice and is always available. I love her and I love Groveland Fairways! In the words of ALL of my guest...my wedding was simply AH-MAZING and I thank Groveland Fairways for everything! I want to do it all over again :)
Our wedding was absolutely perfect on a day where the weather was not cooperating at all. The site was decorated beautifully and the decor was executed even better than I imagined. I still have guests talking about how much they enjoyed their food. The venue really is beautiful. Liz and her team are incredible!! Answered all of my questions promptly and really made sure my husband and I were enjoying ourselves as well. Thank you so much for our beautiful day Liz!!

This is by far the most amazing wedding venue out there!!! Not only is the venue itself gorgeous and owners are constantly working hard to make it more perfect the wedding coordinator Liz is AMAZING!!!! When we first looked at the Venue we were instantly in love, then when we sat down and talked with Liz we were SOLD! She is nothing shy of perfect, she has great ideas, recommendations, and answers your questions so quickly! Working with her for the past year and a half was so much fun! Our wedding day came and she literally thought of everything! We had an outdoor ceremony and it was windy, Liz fixed our flowers which were on pedestals because they kept blowing over, she hid me from my groom very well and gave us awesome ideas for pictures! She also decided to set up an extra bar table outside to eliminate lines when guests left the ceremony! She literally thought of everything and went above and beyond for us which I know she does for every couple!! Groveland fairways is a perfect wedding venue!! Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful it was inside and out! We can't thank Liz and the owners enough for everything they provided us with on our wedding day :)
We just had our wedding at Groveland Fairways 2 weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect. This was the first venue we looked at while plannig our wedding and I knew it was right. We ended up looking at one more place and immediately booked with Groveland Fairways after. Besides how beautiful the venue was, I was really impressed that there were 3 caterers to choose from, most places do not give you that option.
Working with Liz was so easy; she knew exactly how to achieve the event we were looking for. All emails were answered quickly, all issues were resolved before I even had a chance to worry.
I cannot say enough about the service and atmosphere at Groveland Fairways.
My husband and I were so thankful for have found Groveland Fairways. Everything from the facility to the staff made our wedding day go on without any problems. Liz went above and beyond in our opinion not just that day but throughout the entire planning process. She pretty much is a God send not only does she give you access to email with any kind of question but what impressed us the most was her prompt responses. I will always remember while walking through Michaels we had a question on votive candles and she reponded with her advice before we even left the store.
Liz should have charged an additional fee for all the questions I asked and she answered everything single one without ever complaining.
I would not change one thing about our wedding. I would recommend everyone to check out this venue because it was amazing.
I cant say enough about the beautifully elegant venue. Both my husband and I knew this was where we would hold our reception from the minute we walked in the door. It was the first venue we visited and we only visited one more after and immediately knew Groveland Fairways was perfect for us. The grounds are stunning, and there were so many options of where to hold cocktail hour if the weather wasn't perfect (which it was:)!!)
The coordinator Liz is amazing, she took care of every detail from the minute we reserved our date. We never had to worry about anything. She is amazing with calming down brides and going over details before your wedding, and is available whenever you feel like you need to talk through something.
The preferred vendors that Groveland fairways recommends are beyond this world! You cannot make a better decision that having your wedding here...
Everyone keeps telling my husband and I that it was THE BEST wedding they have ever been to!! Thank you!
Amazing place and Amazing staff! The venue is beautiful so many different decorative styles to do in there. the grounds are beautifully landscaped. they wentaabove and beyond my expectation!
