We were even able to personalize the chicken course with Jean, creating a chicken cordon bleu that was to die for. We had over 200+ wedding guest, and unbelievably, there was never a line at the bar. The bartenders worked extra hard that night, pumping out drink after drink. The same goes for our servers as well, the feedback from our guest was how friendly & attentive their servers were to them. Anything, anyone needed was brought to them. The desert hour was fantastic, and left our guests in awe. Thank you Battleground Country Club for making our wedding dreams a reality. We will be forever grateful for the tremendous role that you all played in making our wedding day the best day ever!!

We decided to have our wedding at the Battleground CC because unlike many of the other venues in the area the outdoor area was as beautiful as the inside. We were set on having an outdoor wedding but wanted to make sure that in case of rain the inside would also be nice. The... Read More staff at BCC worked so hard to make sure our day would be everything we hoped for. During the planning process Jean was always available to answer questions and give suggestions. We really loved working with her. She also did a great job coordinating our many pinterest ideas and made sure everything worked out perfectly. On the day of the wedding Tony went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I (and our bridal party) were taken care of. He helped tremendously as we did the first look outside on a super humid day and during the ceremony as it started raining. The food was great, the room looked amazing, and all the small details were taken care of. If we could do it again we would definitely choose BCC all over again. Thank you for making our special day such a beautiful one!

The team at Battleground Country Club is truly impressive. I would recommend this venue for those looking to host a wedding, communion, anniversary party, etc. So glad to have had my wedding reception at the same venue my parents selected for theirs 30 years prior. Jean assisted... Read More every step along the way. She allowed us her time and patience in order to make sure all of the details were just right. We even got a few minutes in the grand ballroom to practice our first dance on the dance floor two days prior to our wedding (we were dropping off a few items for the reception)! My top priority/concern with regard to our reception was my husband’s poultry allergy, but the kitchen at Battleground Country Club truly went above and beyond for us. They were able to tweak recipes and customize the items we wanted to serve to remove all poultry (and broth, stock, etc.) from everything except the chicken entrée option. The kitchen was careful not to cross-contaminate anything else being served at our reception with the chicken entrée and this allowed my husband to have a worry-free day and eat anything he wished. Jean was also able to have the kitchen assist with accommodations for vegetarian meals, gluten free meals (and cake during our dessert hour!) and any other dietary restrictions we needed to tend to for our guests. Both prior to and during our reception Vinny was extremely accommodating. The entire staff was wonderful to work with, very kind and exceeded all of our expectations. Tony was primarily looking after the bridal party and immediate family and really did a great job checking in and making sure everyone was comfortable and happy—thanks for the ride on the golf cart too, Vinny! The value and service at Battleground Country Club is unprecedented. I can’t wait to host another event there!

We chose to have our wedding at the Battleground Country Club for a few reasons 1) Jean was so welcoming and provided us with so much information at our first meeting as far as the types of questions we should be asking, what we should be looking for, etc. 2) We know a few other... Read More people who have attended weddings at the BCC and they had a fabulous time, and 3) the food was delishious. From the minute we walked into the BCC we knew it was our venue. Everything just fell in line from the decor, space, staff, location and the ability for one event at a time. During the months leading up to the wedding Jean was so great helping us and answering all of our questions, making sure the things that were important to us were written into the contract, etc. Our wedding day was the best day ever mostly due to our fabulous maitre d Johnette. She was so incredibly attentive to us and each of our families, she was on point and had such a happy personality where you could tell she just loves what she does. Johnette really went above and beyond for us and for that we will never forget. It was absolutely a day to remember and our guests had nothing but great things to say. We also chose to have our rehearsal at the BCC prior to the wedding. We decided to have a brunch rather than a dinner the week before the wedding and I have to say, it was a blessing in disguise. It was so nice not having to worry about having a rehearsal the night before the wedding with everything else going on. Our guests for the rehearsal absolutely loved not only the brunch idea but the food. We had a nice private room overlooking the golfcourse which was a beautiful setting combined with great food from french toast to bagels to carved turkey and a mimosa fountain. Everything was set up so nicely and spacious but yet felt very cozy for our small group. I would definitely recommend this venue to any bride interested in great service, great decor, one event at a time, and affordable. I look forward to having more events there in the future!

Loved the Battleground!

You only have one chance to make your wedding day perfect, and choosing Battleground Country Club is an excellent first step in making that perfect day a reality. The grounds for the ceremony were beautiful, the food was outstanding and all of the members of the venue's staff... Read More were professional, polite, helpful and responsive. We returned from our honeymoon over a week ago and are still hearing from friends and relatives about the wonderful time that they had at our wedding. The presentation of the food available during the cocktail hour was topped only by how delicious everything was (or so we are told by our guests, we were too excited and awestruck to be very hungry). Our Officiant had never performed a wedding ceremony before (he was a close friend) and we didn't do a formal rehearsal, so Liz and Johnette had their work cut out for them. Both of these ladies deserve a special thank you for making sure everything was such a success. Our Maitre d' (Johnette) was friendly, attentive and very fun to work with. Call us biased if you must, but we feel that Battleground Country Club is the perfect place for a wedding and We would strongly recommend this venue for your next special event. Fall graced us with the perfect weather for an evening wedding, our friends and families made the perfect guests to celebrate our special day, and Battleground County Club took care of the rest. ***Side note: one of our relatives ruined their tie prior to the ceremony and asked one of the wait/bar staff if there were any nearby stores where he could purchase one in time. After advising that there weren't any such stores close enough, the employee let this relative borrow his tie to wear to the ceremony. These are the types of people who make this such an easy venue to recommend***

I have to start by sharing how Amazing the staff was at Battleground Country Club. Liz was great with setting everything up months, weeks and days leading up to my wedding as well as helping on the day of my wedding. Liz was so helpful in answering any questions I had, and... Read More even helped with small pre-wedding problems like one of my bridesmaids shoes breaking seconds before we walked down the aisle. Johnette was absoultely the BEST! She was everywhere and anywhere she needed to be and then some, from checking in on me and my groom to making sure the line at the bar did not back up during the reception. Johnette made us feel so welcomed at the Battleground from the moment we met her I knew we were in great hands for our wedding day. It rained on my wedding day and we had to make the decision to have the wedding inside, which was not our preferred option of course. An hour before the wedding ceremony it stopped raining and the sun was out, the Amazing staff including Liz and Johnette were literally running around moving flowers from inside to the outside, so I could have the most beautiful ceremony outside. The food was absolutely amazing, people are still telling me how awesome the cocktail hour was as well as the reception food and desert room. I cannot say enough about how amazing the staff was in making my wedding the absolute best day! I would highly recommed the Battleground to anyone looking to have an amazing wedding!
