The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Echo Valley Country Club has its location in Norwalk, Iowa. Though it’s just minutes away from the center of Norwalk, it has a peaceful, isolated ambience. It features an 18-hole golf course, as well as hundreds of acres of meticulously maintained rolling green hills. The main clubhouse at this venue features modern architecture with playful vintage touches and its simple decorative elements draw attention to the natural beauty of the surrounding area. There are indoor and outdoor spaces available for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
The Lawn. The lawn is a favorite spot for outdoor ceremonies. It is located outside of the clubhouse and adjacent to the golf course and mainly consists of an open space covered in lush green grass. The area offers sweeping views of the course, including one of the decorative water features. It can accommodate up to 240 guests seated in a traditional ceremony layout with two groups of guests and an aisle down the middle.
The Event Space. The event space is located on the second floor of the clubhouse. This raised vantage point gives guests sweeping views of the golf course, as well as the copse of trees on its edge. This room features high ceilings with custom light fixtures that shed a warm, inviting glow. It can comfortably seat up to 240 guests with plenty of space for a dance floor and even a DJ booth or live band.
The Balcony. The balcony is directly attached to the event space. It looks directly over the golf course and it is large enough to accommodate around 30 guests at a time. If weather permits, the doors between the balcony and the event space can be left open, so guests can flow freely between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

A room you can easily dress up and it looks great!Reviewed on 8/16/2011 Leah D
The Echo Valley CC banquet room has some pretty ugly chairs (but are getting new ones this fall) so we spent a little extra on chair covers and it looked amazing. It is a smaller venue, but for our guest list of 150 people it was a great space. The staff is VERY friendly and we had great service for our plated dinner.
Great VenueReviewed on 8/24/2010 Sara T
