Words do not express how much I loved my wedding at the Ridge Club. I searched lots of places to have a wedding reception on Cape Cod and completely fell in love with the Ridge Club. The grounds are beautiful, the room is open and bright, and the outdoor patio space is amazing for a cocktail hour! I loved everything about the place!! It fit right into my Caribbean/Tropical/Beach inspired wedding theme. I worked closely with Lindsay, the wedding coordinator, and she was fantastic! The day of the wedding everything went so smoothly and I truly am thankful for Lindsay and the staff at the Ridge Club for making the reception flawless. Lindsay kept everything running on time and there was zero stress.

The Ridge Club was very flexible with every decision by us and it was great to put our personal touches on the day with decorations, entertainment, signature cocktails and food.

Many people came up to me at the wedding and afterwards and told me how beautiful the place was and how much they loved the setting, room, cocktail hour out on the patio, food and all around atmosphere.

I would highly recommend having your wedding here...you will love it!

Beautiful and Amazing posted 11/24/2012

We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding day came together, and Amanda at the Ridge club helped us to make it all happen. She was very helpful during the planning process, helping with menus, timelines etc. She set up all of our reception items including centerpieces, escort cards, menu cards and candy station, which was a tremendous weight off my shoulders.

The venue is beautiful! We had our ceremony inside by the fireplace since we were not sure if the weather would cooperate and it was intimate, cozy and rustic. We didn’t have any ceremony flowers or décor but it looked great. The reception room is open, airy and sunny with high ceilings and sky lights. We had the patio open for cocktail hour and throughout the night which was perfect. It was a crisp night but with the heaters it was a nice for fresh air throughout the night. The landscaping makes for a gorgeous setting and pictures.

The food was amazing!! Like with any venue, the tasting comes after you sign and much closer to your event which makes it tough to know how it will be. Portions were good size and both salmon and chicken were cooked perfectly. The chef was flexible with the sides and did custom hors d’oeuvres for me.

The service staff was phenomenal. Of course we were busy walking around saying thank you’s etc, but the staff made a point to come find us to tell us when we were served. I’ve been to weddings where some people are on course 2 when others are just getting course 1, but the staff was efficient and friendly.

As an convention manager, I know how much goes into a function and how tough it is to please everyone, but all of our guests were blown away. Overall we had an amazing experience and I would recommend the Ridge Club to anyone.

The Perfect Venue posted 12/30/2011

We had our Wedding at the Ridge Club on 11/5/11 and we couldn’t have been happier with the way everything turned out! From the first moment we met with Amanda we knew it was the place we wanted to have the reception. We would have done our ceremony outside as well if we had gotten married in the Summer. The grounds are simply breathtaking!
My Father was a member of the Ridge Club for the past 15 years and all the times I had been there, I never noticed the beautiful reception area attached to the club house. Everything about the room is very elegant and very Cape Cod. It was important to us to have a reception area that was unique and not just a standard ballroom or tent. The ceilings were one of our favorite’s parts as well along with the layout and separate area for the DJ. The chairs were a huge selling point as well as you don’t need to spend extra money on chair covers.
In addition to the Ridge Club being a great venue esthetically, Amanda Fant was one of the major contributing factors when we made our decision. She was so helpful and what was most impressive, she gave her honest opinion! When you are going through the decision process and all the Wedding planning it really is so helpful to have someone to lean on and get their honest opinion of what would make your day better.
The service and food also make this venue a MUST! We received so many compliments about our Wedding food and the mac n cheese appetizer was a hit!
I would absolutely recommend the Ridge Club for your Wedding Reception! Happy Planning!

Perfect Country Club Setting posted 6/17/2013

This venue was perfect for my early June wedding. Beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the golf course for the cocktail hour and vaulted ceilings and brick flooring inside for the reception. Everything was so elegant, exactly what I was looking for.

We just got married at The Ridge Club 10/12/12 and we had the most amazing night. We chose The Ridge Club because of the clean, fresh, updated space, the layout, and also the price was great. We were working on a bit of a budget, and they include so much more than so many other places I looked into! The venue is gorgeous, the views are gorgeous, and the food was great. I haven't stopped getting compliments on the food and the overall atmosphere since the wedding. Amanda was great to work with, but there were a few small things that could have been better/more organized.
I was very disappointed we didn't get appetizers brought to us while we were getting pictures taken during the cocktail hour..especially since I asked about this a few months in advance. We were just past the outdoor patio space on the green so it's not like we were far, and it was freezing so food may have made the cold more bearable! I got to taste one cold left over stuffed mushroom while we were waiting to be announced! I was also a little annoyed, though we opted not to have a champagne toast, we only had water to toast to for the speeches! It would have been awesome if someone had taken a drink order and had it on our table for us to toast to. I hardly got any responses to emails I sent Amanda, but my calls were returned promptly. I thought the rehearsal was really disorganized, we didn't have much direction, and we kind of just threw it together. Also nothing was set up for the rehearsal so I was a little stressed I couldn't set anything up myself or see how it would look. My centerpieces were a lot to handle, but I will say Amanda pulled off all the little details, everything was better than I expected the night of the wedding.
The night of the wedding there were a few times we were looking for some direction, like how to handle the cupcake "cake cutting", and we couldn't find anyone. We hired a band, it was getting late, we weren't sure if they needed to make an announcement or when we should have people come up for cupcakes..small stuff but it would have been nice to have someone take control so I didn't have the band, my mom, and guests asking me what they should do, I had no idea! We ended up "feeding each other" our cupcakes after a bridesmaid ran around telling everyone to help themselves..the cupcake stand was half empty by the time we got up there! Also about the band, if you hire one, be sure to let them know they aren't permitted to have any alcoholic beverages from the bar! It's pretty normal for band members to have a beer or two throughout the night at a gig, so they were not pleased when we were all surprised by this policy!! Overall I'd definitely recommend the Ridge Club. It was a phenomenal night, great atmosphere, and overall Amanda was very helpful and on top of things. Everything was beautiful and everyone had such a good time. I'll just say that I can't help but feel the service we received reflected the budget we we were on.

Great Venue! posted 7/19/2012

Can't say enough about the Ridge Club - Amanda (the wedding coordinator) was an absolute doll to work with - She was on top of everything, made sure everything went smooth day of the wedding and that everything was set up as we had imagined - The grounds are beautiful, the food was absolutely excellent and Amanda is just so great to work with! If you're getting married on site, the outdoor tent can be a little dark if there isn't enough sunlight out (just a bit of advice) and some of the chairs need to be replaced or redone (the white lawn chairs show signs of wear and tear). My only complaint was that they had a full bar set up right outside the tent we were getting married at before the ceremony even began, so as myself and bridesmaids were putting on final makeup touches after doing pictures, guests were in and out of the bathroom (where we were) which was a little frustrating - Other than that, everything was just simply perfect!

The Ridge Club is an amazing choice of venue. The room is simple, yet elegant. The grounds are beautiful and the menu allows for unique options that are all delicious. Amanda is extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. She was efficient and thorough and we never had a doubt in our mind that our wedding day would be perfect. I highly recommend the Ridge Club.

Perfect Wedding Venue posted 8/15/2011

This is the perfect wedding venue for many reasons. It is absolutely beautiful. The grounds were nicely kept, even in the dead of winter (when we selected our venue). From the minute you enter the property you feel special. Everything is so open, bright, and pristine. However, it's not stuffy at all. It just has a refreshing feel.

The nice part about The Ridge Club is that you can have your ceremony and reception all in one place, and it works rain or shine. Their is a nice rent nestled in trees that feels like an outdoor wedding but is technically covered. This was a big plus for me, as I did not want to hope for good weather and have to resort to a Plan B if it was raining on my wedding day. Regardless of what the weather is, your vision will play out. The grounds are accented by stone walls, trees, brick walkways, and the prettiest views you can imagine!

The Pavilion (reception hall) has so much character but is a nice blank slate for your theme. It has beautiful pane doors and windows and allows for a lot of natural sunlight to come through. The ceilings are nice and high with the exception of the center of the room - the ceiling dips down quite a bit. I just moved the dance floor to one end of the room so that it was in the more open space. It worked nicely. The dance floor is small to begin with but they allowed me to rent additional dance floor spaces to make it larger (I knew we had a lot of dancers coming). Also, there are bathrooms located within the reception area so that your guests have their own space and don't need to leave the immediate area to use the restroom.

In addition, the food is delicious. Every one of my guests commented on the awesome food - both the hors d'oeuvres and the dinner. They even have an outdoor grill area for the cocktail hour - chefs cooking right in front of you. It was a nice touch.


Most importantly is Amanda, the event coordinator. Amanda was absolutely fantastic. We had made several appointments to visit venues and Amanda was by far the person that made us feel the most comfortable and taken care of. She is SO on top of everything and will try to accommodate your every wish. My fiance and I requested golf carts for our entire wedding party (all 15 of us plus photographers) and she came through.
Amanda and I exchanged emails for about 8 months prior to my wedding. She always responded within 24 hours - often just minutes or hours later. I asked A LOT of questions and Amanda was always positive and patient with me. She was able to recommend vendors of all types - hair, makeup, limo, hotel, cake, flowers, etc. Every interaction with Amanda was genuine. I never felt like we were just a customer but that Amanda truly cared about our wedding as much as we did. Aside from its appearance, Amanda was a big part of why we chose the The Ridge Club. I know we had the best in her. Prior to the wedding we dropped off a ton of homemade decorations and details and Amanda listened to my every request and set them up exactly as I had hoped. She is so responsible and professional --- I knew she understood my vision and I felt so comfortable leaving such a big day in her hands. That is huge when planning a wedding. You don't want to feel like you have to micromanage people, and Amanda made it so I had a lot less to worry about! We were so pleased with her. She definitely makes The Ridge Club experience extra wonderful.

I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!

We loved the Ridge Club posted 10/12/2010 (modified 10/12/2010)

We had our wedding reception at the Ridge Club on 6/19/10 and we are so glad we did :-)
I am an event planner myself and I knew what I was looking for in a venue. When we saw the Ridge Club, that was it! We didn't even need to see any other places. The set up was perfect for a cape wedding. The cocktail hour outside among beautiful flowers w/ the chef cooking the hors dourves on the outdoor grill. It was perfect! Another important factor for me was the attentiveness of the staff. We could not have asked for anyone better then Amanda. She was excellent to work with and everything went off with out a hitch. The food is amazing and all of our guests were raving about the food at the cocktail hour! (the mini burgers and french fries were a huge hit). We could not have chose a more perfect venue for our day.

Excellent Venue posted 10/6/2010

My husband and I held our wedding reception at the Ridge Club on 9/25/10. We had an unbelievable experience. Throughout the planning process, the event coordinator (Amanda Fant) was professional, organized, and extremely responsive to our many questions and concerns. She met with us on several occasions to view the venue, do our tasting, as well as review some of the services that we were considering. The week leading up to the wedding, Amanda met with us to go over all of the details in order to ensure that the evening went as we had planned. On the actual day of the wedding, all of the staff were wonderful (friendly, hospitable, etc.) And, all of the food was fabulous. In fact, many of our guests commented on the plated meals and hors d'eouvres, saying that they tasted fresh and delicious! The only minor critique I might give is that there was a bit of a delay between serving the salad course and main meal, however, none of our guests seemed to mind. In terms of the club, it was well maintained (beautiful flowers in the outdoor patio area) and clean. Overall, we had a wonderful experience working with the staff of the Ridge Club. Our wedding day was truly amazing!

Review for The Ridge Club posted 9/5/2008

The chef was talented and available. We had a gorgeous outdoor cocktail hour with an outdoor kitchen right there on the premises. The indoor space was beautiful--I couldn't have been happier.;Management changed three times between when we signed a contract and when the wedding actually was. It was nerve-wracking but didn't actually affect anything and its all over now.
