The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
The Pinnacle Golf Club English-manor-style property is ideal for the couple looking for an elegant wedding site with pristine lawns for outdoor ceremonies and grand chandeliers for indoor receptions. Situated just southwest of Columbus, Ohio, Pinnacle Golf Club's large property gives up to 400 guests a grand entrance up a private driveway to the classic stone building outside of the hustle and bustle of the city.
. Large windows in the Grand Ballroom give guests panoramic views of the manicured golf course, waterfalls and sycamore trees, and fire pits lure them out onto the patio after dark. You'll dance the night away on the marble dance floor under grand chandeliers, while Pinnacle Golf Club's staff takes care of every detail. The Grand Ballroom can be used for both the ceremony and reception, reconfigured by the staff while your guests have cocktail hour on the patio.
The Bride's Garden is a lovely outdoor ceremony space secluded from the rest of the grounds. The bride walks toward her groom down a brick path lined by friends and family on the pristine lawn.
For the more intimate wedding, you can still have the gorgeous views and manor-style decor of Pinnacle Golf Club in the Loft and Rooftop Terrace with up to 100 guests. This special second-floor location gives you the VIP treatment above the grounds.

We just got married in May 2016 and my husband and I cannot say enough great things about our wedding at Pinnacle. Our wedding coordinator, Traci, was so awesome! She answered all our questions (and trust me there were many), met with us as many times as we needed with practically open availability, and went above and beyond to make our day flow perfectly! She is professional, kind, and experienced! The venue is absolutely beautiful and was able to fit all 300 of our wedding guests comfortably! The courtyard space they have for the ceremony is dreamy. The backdrop gave us absolutely gorgeous pictures, the chairs were well kept, and they have a great sound system for your officiant and music guests! And the reception ball room is even better. Beautiful chandeliers and large windows, huge dance floor, and well kept furnishing made for an amazing reception. You hardly need any decorations with how naturally beautiful it is! The food is also great!! They have many options and all tasted wonderful (and it was hot... huge benefit of having a kitchen right there!!) I recommend their mashed potatoes! :) We had the wedding of our dreams and we cannot say enough good things about having a wedding at Pinnacle!
I was with my now husband for almost 9 years before we got married at Pinnacle. So, I had a long time to day dream about the perfect wedding. Pinnacle gave that to me. I probably looked at the majority of venues in central Ohio because I had a picture perfect idea of what I wanted my wedding to look like (thanks to Pinterest). As soon as I stepped foot in Pinnacle my jaw dropped. THOSE CHANDELIERS!!!! Wow. (Talk about BEAUTIFUL wedding pictures!!!) Pinnacle, hands down, is the most incredibly gorgeous venue around. I had the ABSOLUTE pleasure of working with Traci, one of the wedding planners there. Traci went out of her way to make the planning and execution of the ceremony/reception completely flawless. They say something always goes wrong on your wedding day... NOT AT PINNACLE! They map out the entire day and work closely with your vendors to make sure the flow and transitions throughout the day are seamless. The food is incredible and the drinks are stiff!! Doesn't get much better than that! There are not enough words to explain how perfect my wedding day was. I had a lot of people ask if I had to do it over again, what I would change... And I honestly respond, absolutely nothing. Thank you Traci and the Pinnacle staff for giving me the most memorably perfect wedding day. I can't recommend this venue highly enough, I wish there were more than 5 stars!!!
We had a small wedding in the loft area. The space was perfect for our intimate ceremony and reception and the fall backdrop from the trees was perfect! I recommend the loft area if you are looking for a small and affordable gathering. Traci was so helpful during the planning process and wedding day. The food was great and all of our guests loved the space. I'm so happy we chose Pinnacle for our wedding!
A weekend, a venue and service to remember! We had our wedding and rehearsal dinner at the Pinnacle in August 2016. Starting from our visit a year prior we fell in love with the space. A ballroom to fit more than our 200 guests with gorgeous chandeliers, huge windows with a view of the golf course and a large dance floor. The outdoor ceremony space felt perfect with a backdrop of the golf course. Even the entrance to Pinnacle is impressive. After selecting the Pinnacle our Pinnacle wedding coordinator, Traci, was always attentive to our questions (and there were many) and she was forthcoming with her thoughts along with new ideas we had not thought of. Traci was willing to meet with us when we requested. She and PInnacle had also worked with a number of our other vendors. When the wedding weekend actually arrived the service continued as the service staff for our rehearsal dinner was great! Very attentive and willing to help with anything we needed. The day of the wedding provided lots of solutions as the groomsmen all arrived early and had a room to have lunch with access to beverages at the bar. The bridesmaids arrived shortly after and had their own separate room. Everything was setup perfectly. Then the outdoor ceremony started and crazily enough a storm blew in. We ended up rushing to the end of the ceremony and moving inside and then decided to setup the ceremony inside. Traci and the Pinnacle staff could not have been more helpful as we moved everything inside and restaged the ceremony. The service continued throughout the rest of the night as dinner was great and the dance floor was the highlight of the evening. Overall, we could not have been happier with our experience with the Pinnacle as a venue, the staff and Traci. Thank you to all involved!
We recently held our wedding reception at the Pinnacle and we absolutely loved it! The staff was so helpful and our event planner, Lisa, took care of everything and definitely helped ease a lot of the stress of wedding planning. The site is beautiful and all of our guests enjoyed the amazing food prepared by the Pinnacle chefs. Our wedding day was perfect and we owe a large portion of that to the Pinnacle Golf Club. At the end of the day, we even received a goody bag with leftovers from the dinner and snacks for our wedding night. I would definitely recommend the Pinnacle for future brides!
My husband and I got married on 9/10/16 and it was the most magical day ever!!! Pinnacle was my dream venue, it had everything we had wanted; amazing food, high ceilings and beautiful chandeliers, a gorgeous outdoor ceremony area, and so much space!!! Our wedding was supposed to be outdoors, it was beautiful outside and the arbor was all decorated and set up. Literally five minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start, it started thunder storming and raining...everything was moved inside...and it was BEAUTIFUL still. Lisa, our amazing coordinator, moved everything inside so quickly and even still was able to make me an aisle out of the flower petals we had ready for a petal toss. It all flowed perfectly and our guests commented on how gorgeous it looked inside, with such short notice to love everything! I can't thank Lisa enough for helping us with all of the planning from start to finish, and for being so patient with us for all of our questions along the way. I love this venue so much and would recommend it to anyone looking for elegance!
We just had our wedding at Pinnacle in September. Not only is the venue beautiful and the ballroom absolutely breathtaking, the staff cannot be beat. Traci made the entire process as smooth and enjoyable as possible while being so thoughtful and accomidating. Our day was truly a fairytale
We just had a small 50 person wedding in the upstairs loft area of the pinnacle golf club. It was beautiful. We got so many compliments from all our guests on how great the pinnacle was. Traci was great. She handled everything so well and was very attentive to every detail. I can honestly say not one thing went wrong. Traci and her staff did a wonderful job and we would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in central ohio!
This venue is a must see if you are planning a wedding! The Pinnacle Golf Club provided the best of both worlds, a romantic outdoor wedding and an exquisite ballroom for the reception. All of the staff, and especially our coordinator Traci, were extremely helpful and accommodating beyond belief. The Pinnacle staff took the majority of the work and stress off of our shoulders by setting up the tables, chairs, linens, and provided some centerpieces. The food was delicious too! I highly recommend The Pinnacle Golf Club for any event!
Pinnacle is a dream wedding venue with incredible people who will work with you to plan the perfect event. My husband and I got married in September 2016 and I cannot begin to recommend Pinnacle highly enough. We looked at countless venues in Columbus, Akron, and Cleveland. Between the two of us and our families, we admittedly had a long list of elements we were looking for but as soon as we toured Pinnacle, we knew it was perfect. Pictures alone do not do this venue justice because the overall experience, especially the people, is what sets Pinnacle apart. We worked with both Lisa and Tina throughout the planning process and I cannot put into words how helpful they both were over the course of the year. Regardless of whether our event was in months or days, they treated our questions and emails with the highest priority. At our meetings and on phone calls all of our ideas were met with enthusiasm and genuine interest. They helped stay within our budget, create an incredible day for our guests, and made our wedding feel like our own. Having Tina there on the day of the event was a dream come true. She was helpful beyond words. We cannot thank the entire staff enough for making our wedding absolutely perfect. I would book Pinnacle for our wedding venue again in a heartbeat!! It was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process and I especially loved working with the wonderful people there!!
Hands down thee best place for a wedding in the Columbus area!! Beyond gorgeous venue, top notch staff, everything was absolutely perfect! Our wedding coordinator Traci was so helpful! She made planning our wedding down to every detail so easy! She was so great and fun to work with! We were able to make the ballroom our own and put our own spin on everything and the staff was right there helping make all of it possible! One of my favorite reasons we got married there is that we will always be able to go back and enjoy dinner at Cimi's Bistro and relive our day forever!
This is a beautiful venue, with dedicated staff and great food. For great memories on your wedding day look no further! Our wedding planner was Traci and she is awesome! She covered every detail, always available and with a prompt response time. Those details paid off on the wedding day. Everything went off without a hitch. The chef is Guido, he does amazing things with food. We received so many comments from guests about how delicious the food was. This is an attractive and classic venue, but affordable. It's also has full service wedding planning. From the grounds, to the elegant entrance, to the player piano, to the hidden garden and the gorgeous restrooms. There's a reason it's called The Pinnacle, because they apply the highest standards to your special day.
Wonderful experience at Pinnacle for our small wedding utilizing the upstairs small dining room and balcony space for our ceremony! All of the staff are great to work with, especially Tracy! She was great. I felt very at ease on my wedding day knowing everything was taken care of.
Want to eliminate some wedding stress? Choose Pinnacle! The venue is absolutely stunning, but the beauty is not skin deep. The staff was incredible. They take customer service to a whole new level. We worked with Traci; she took care of everything venue related. She was very supportive of my opinions while offering her expertise. She kept tabs on my timeline as we planned over the past year, and made sure I didn't miss anything. The food was really delicious. The bartenders were fast and made great drinks. The entire staff was friendly and so helpful before, during, and after the event. Everyone at Pinnacle took care to make my day so very special, with the aesthetic I wanted and the service I needed. My guests loved the experience at Pinnacle, too! We received so many compliments on every aspect of the day. It was a total class act all around.
Couldn't Have Found a Better VenueReviewed on 10/27/2015 Brittany M
My sister found a small add for the Pinnacle and it was the last place we viewed before booking our wedding. The Pinnacle's venue is absolutely beautiful. From the chandeliers in the ballroom, to the private ceremony area, it stood a part from the other venues we looked at and matched my style perfectly. Traci was my contact at the venue and she was so easy to work with. She is willing to meet whenever you need it. She had great advice for the event and gave us the idea to add butler passed champagne at our ceremony. She also coordinated splitting the rental cost for chiavari chairs with the other bride that weekend, so I only paid half price for most of the chairs! Additionally, for the ceremony, we didn't even add any decorations and it was still so beautiful! In comparison to the other venues we looked at in the Columbus area, the price was very comparable and potentially a little less than what we would have paid somewhere else. There is only one improvement I would suggest throughout the whole event. During the ceremony, there was a game going on and I could hear the other guests outside at the restaurant. It wasn't too distracting (and I'm not sure if they could help this too much), but I definitely could hear people at times. Overall, I had a fabulous experience with the Pinnacle and would highly recommend it to any bride.
Pinnacle’s gorgeous venue coupled with superb staff makes for an absolutely perfect wedding experience. Lisa Bapst is A+. She is responsive, knowledgeable, reliable and most importantly understanding of what a special time this is for the bride, groom and everyone involved. From the time we first toured Pinnacle through our final visit a few days after the wedding to pick up a few things left behind, my husband and I felt like her number 1 priority. Her staff is a talented, experienced group of professionals. The whole day was seamless: the ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour, music, food, the bar, etc. I could not be happier with my experience with Lisa and Pinnacle Golf Club.
Our wedding @ Pinnacle Golf ClubReviewed on 9/01/2015 Kara
I loved having our wedding at the Pinnacle . I'm the second one in my family to get married there, and it's beautiful . There food is amazing, the outdoor courtyard where we had the ceremony is beautiful and the inside ballroom for the reception is too! We got married on a Sunday because it's cheaper , and I think they are reasonable in cost. Would defiantly recommend !
The Pinnacle Gold Club- OhioReviewed on 8/11/2015 Lauren S
The Pinnacle Golf Club, specifically Tina Holley, helped my husband and I with every want and need we had for our wedding day. Tina helped us take all of our visions and dreams and bring them to reality. They made one of the best days of our lives smooth and memorable. I would recommend Tina and The Pinnacle Golf Club to anyone looking for a venue for a wedding or any other type of party venue!
LoveReviewed on 7/30/2015 Megan W
This venue was amazing! We knew we wanted to get married here the moment we saw the pictures online. It was more than we could have hoped!
Elegant VenueReviewed on 7/06/2015 Elizabeth D
I highly recommend The Pinnacle for many reasons. I was very impressed with how beautiful The Pinnacle ballroom is. My fiancé and I had looked at 4 other places before we saw the Pinnacle. We liked that The Pinnacle had an outdoor area for our guests to go (my Dad and the groomsmen enjoyed cigars outside during the end of the reception) that The Athletic club downtown does not. It was also less expensive than other places we looked at like Darby House and The Athletic Club. And it was much nicer than some of the hotels downtown that don't have any windows. The chandeliers are gorgeous and give the ballroom an elegant feel without the need for much decoration on your part. We had about 140 guests which fit perfectly at 8 tables per side of the room. We were expecting quite a few more guests when we chose this venue but honestly I think it might have felt a bit crowded with more. Lisa Bapst was our contact person and she was amazing! She kept in touch throughout the process and sat down with us for a few hours the week before our wedding to iron out the timeline and any last minute details. We were impressed that she took the time to meet with us even though she had a family event to go to that day. The food was delicious too! My fiancé and I were worried about the quality of the food after our menu tasting. However, on the day of our wedding everything was superb the way I had hoped it would be. They were also accommodating of our gluten-free and lactose intolerant guests. The location was easy to get to for our guests who stayed at the Drury Inn (also recommend it!). I really have no complaints about The Pinnacle. If you are looking to get photos on the golf course that is not allowed but honestly there were plenty of good places for photos not on the golf course or at The Pinnacle clubhouse with the golf course in the background. The staff took care of set-up and tear-down which allowed me to spend time with my guests and bridal party before the wedding. Our price is lower than current prices because we signed a contract back in 2013 when we first got engaged. Prices just went up about $2000 on the food and beverage minimum this year. However I would still recommend looking at The Pinnacle for your Columbus wedding.
Amazing experience!Reviewed on 7/04/2015 Jess P
Pinnacle is an incredible venue for a wedding! The wedding coordinator was AMAZING. She knew all the details both big and small to talk about at the meetings (things I would never have thought about!) and made it so there were no worries at all. Venue is stunning, both the outside aisle and ballroom. Food is provided by their catering service and is delicious. All staff is courteous and made the wedding as smooth as possible. Everything Pinnacle did allowed for my husband and I to enjoy every moment, without any thought to details or schedule!
Most Amazing Venue & Service EVERReviewed on 6/25/2015 Carley O
I had my wedding here June 21st 2015. I currently live in Orlando, Florida and was planning our wedding from out of state the whole time. Traci was our wedding coordinator here and she was PHENOMENAL. Even being over a year out we met with her multiple times when we came into town, talked over the phone and through emails monthly, and she took care of anything and everything for us. She was always there for me and made time for us whenever we came into town. My day was the most STRESSFREE day I could have ever imagined. Nothing went wrong, everything was absolutely perfect. The brides garden was the perfect ceremony space and the grand ball room is nothing short of spectacular. It was the most beautiful day and so much of that was due to Traci and Pinnacle. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who really wants to wow their guests and have a fairy tale day!
LOOK NO FURTHER! Pinnacle is THE place to have your wedding. Traci and the staff help you plan every detail. Traci takes care of the little things you don't think about that makes the wedding day so extra special. She takes care of everything so the bride and groom, and wedding party don't have to worry about the tiniest detail. The food is delicious, service is spot on, and a gorgeous ballroom. We had over 165 guests and the ballroom was very spacious for the dinner tables, DJ area, large tuscan table for the bridal party, coffee station, dessert tables leaving lots of space for dancing! We had such great day from our 9 am arrival, to our departure at midnight! Traci had the bridal suite set up early in the morning so our hair and make up vendors could get their stations set up. She made sure we had lunch brought in from Cimi's Bistro around noon. While the wedding party was having pictures taken during the guests' cocktail time, Traci made sure there was a plate of hors d'oeuvres delivered to the bridal suite for the wedding party to also enjoy. Traci made sure the groom, groomsmen and both dads had a special lunch and a changing area too. Our day was perfect, thanks to Traci and everyone at Pinnacle Golf Club!
Perfect Place for Our Romantic WeddingReviewed on 2/03/2015 terri v
We searched all over Columbus then ventured to Grove City. The Pinnacle Club was 'IT' from the moment we walked in the door. Beautiful ballroom with huge glass windows opening to trees and trickling waterfalls. The staff is courteous and professional from every angle. Traci was our event coordinator and she is top notch. She is responsive, patient, informed and the person you want on your event team. The chef is omg incredible. The food was so delicious and well presented. Everyone went back for more! Look no further, book early because it is popular! I cannot say enough about every detail here.
Venue perfectionReviewed on 9/07/2014 Alli B
The Pinnacle was the perfect venue for my wedding! The wedding coordinators were so helpful and on top of every little detail. I wanted to do my wedding slightly different than a traditional wedding timeline and they made it run sooo smoothly. I cannot even begin to explain how many compliments I had on the venue. The outside patios give the bride and groom so many options! The outdoor ceremony sight was perfection. Such beautiful pictures from the ceremony. The staff made the wedding run so perfectly and the food was delicious. Everything about the Pinnacle was perfect!!
