The Inside Scoop


FROM THE KNOT EDITORS

The First Look

Rush Creek Golf Club is a pristine property in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Set just 20 miles from downtown Minneapolis, the venue provides you with a chance to celebrate your wedding reception in the peace of the countryside. There’s an 18-hole championship golf course on the grounds and a sophisticated stone clubhouse.

MacMillan Ballroom. Elegantly decorated, this airy reception space has many traditional touches, such as carved wood paneling, crown moulding and two large stone fireplaces. There are also several chandeliers hanging from the vaulted ceiling. Its many windows flood the room with natural light. A Juliet balcony is attached to the ballroom, offering stunning views of the golf course and the sunset. It’s located on the first floor of the clubhouse and best for large receptions. The maximum capacity is 325 guests.

Skye Conference Room. This space has a style highly similar to that of the ballroom, but with a smaller and more intimate setting. There is a wall of windows and a grand stone fireplace, as well as ornately patterned carpets. It's located on the second floor of the clubhouse and is best for smaller receptions. The maximum capacity is 120 guests.

Stirling Conference Room. Suitable for relatively small gatherings, the classically decorated Stirling Conference Room has a maximum capacity of 60 guests. Combined with the Skye Room, the Stirling Room is a wonderful pre-function space.

We chose Rush Creek for our wedding reception and I am so happy! Kendra (Coordinator) was absolutely amazing. She was quick at responding to emails to the endless questions I had. I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator to work with. Rush Creek is such a beautiful and... Read More classy venue. One of my favorite things about having our wedding reception at Rush Creek was that they took care of set up and take down. It was 100% worry-free. The staff was great as well. They took care of everything. The night of the wedding Tanya (Rush Creek Employee) had everything taken care of before I would ask and she even boxed of pizza for me at the end of the night! She made sure the cake was boxed up and in the car of my in laws and that the guys got the gifts out to the cars as well. It was awesome! All of our guest were wowed by what a great venue Rush Creek is and I would strongly recommend this venue! I don't have a single negative thing to say about Rush Creek. It was more than I could have asked for.

I was so impressed with the level of service before, during and after our wedding. Aimee, the coordinator, made everything so easy on us. They worked with us regarding food allergies, like to the point where Aimee got the ingredient list of everything we would have there and had... Read More a special meal made for my dad because of all his allergies. It was perfect! They also accommodated guest allergies as well.. with our large group... that's amazing! People couldn't stop talking about the food, it was seriously that good. Everything was set up perfectly! The entire night ran so smoothly, we didn't have to worry about a thing. I couldn't have asked for more. The venue was stunning, the fire pits outside were lit without asking, our decorations were set up perfectly... seriously everything was perfect. I definitely recommend Rush Creek, #1 for the coordinator and how perfectly she had everything run and #2 for the sheer beauty of the indoor and outdoor space. Thank you Aimee and Rush Creek! You FAR exceeding our expectations and helped make our day perfect!

Rush Creek is beautiful, Kendra was great to work with, very accommodating and guest were very impressed. Four weeks prior to our wedding, another wedding booked the room upstairs. We were assured we would not be interrupted and the wedding would not interfere with our day.... Read More Unfortunately, our first look was interrupted by the other wedding party and the photographer walking in right when I was going to tap my husband on the shoulder. Also, we were instructed to return the day after our wedding to pick up wedding decorations. When we returned, none of the decorations were packed up (which we were told they would be). Overall, great experience (love Kendra and would recommend working with her!) just a couple hick-ups.

Food was good & a beautiful location. Things we didn't like: 1. Get any promotions or deal they offer you in writing!!! Kendra told us during one of our meetings that we'd get a round of golf for 4 for free. A few months after the wedding we came back for our "free" round of... Read More golf. AFTER we golfed she told us that only my round of golf was free and that the other 3 people would have to pay for their round of golf. She at least gave us a discount on the other 3, but said she hadn't written down in her notes the free round of golf for 4 so she wouldn't honor it. 2. My parents hosted the bar until dinner. They told us the tip jars wouldn't go out until after dinner since my parents were covering the tip (20%) as part of hosting the bar. However, the tip jars were out right away so our guest were paying for something that was already covered.

Overall Great Venue

Reviewed on 7/28/2015 Laura N

Rush Creek is gorgeous! Everything about it made us book the venue. The only downside was the communication between us, the venue coordinator and the waitstaff. We were asked to cut the cake before we even were served the salad and was bothered to cut the cake every five minutes... Read More until I snapped on one of the waitstaff saying that we will cut it after the main course is served. We did have to repeat some of the accommodations since the coordinator went on vacation before the wedding and forgot to record any food allergies in our order. We contacted Aimee (who I highly recommend) when the coordinator was out of town and she helped us with everything. The food was great though! Pros: - amazing decor and photography backdrop - great food - great staff overall Cons: - hard to get a hold of (I would call our coordinator and receive an email back the next day.) - little communication between the waitstaff - trial food not included in the cost of the wedding. You have to pay per meal which was around $200 per person. We opted out.

From the first meeting with Kendra, to the last hour of the wedding day with Tanya, Rush Creek was as perfect as can be! Kendra was amazing, easy to work with and communication was a breeze via emails. Her experience shows; her "estimates" of food etc were within single digits.... Read More We had an unusually cold and windy early October wedding. We had hoped to have the cocktail hour on the patio, but she was flexible and made the last minute change to inside effortlessly. The view from inside with the large windows was absolutely beautiful; we had so many comments from our guests on the beautiful venue- both inside and out. Tanya was amazing, she provided us with any little detail we might need throughout the whole day from morning until nearly one AM. Our guests commented on the great food, the fun 10 pm snack (mini sliders and fries), and the beautiful views. We brought in individual apple pies which the plated for us and even served them warm! As a whole, we would describe this venue as classic, warm, and inviting with a relaxed feel. We couldn't have asked for anything more for the special day.

A few days before our wedding we came and dropped everything off, Kendra and her staff set everything up beautifully and perfectly and then on the Monday we picked up everything that was left over. All the miscellaneous things were boxed up and ready to go. Kendra even coordinated with our vendors, and I didnt have to be the middle person. Also, to complicate things, since we had a Jewish wedding we brought in Kosher meals for some of our guests. The staff kept everything straight to separate the meals and serve them to the correct table as well as know which wine was allowed to be served there. It was amazing! Anyone, looking at the place would know that it is beautiful and these pictures do not lie. However, know that the food is also fantastic and the service you will get is out of this world.
