Zack and I were the couple that searched more ceremony and reception sites than can be recalled. Like many brides, I had a vision for my wedding. I did not want to get married in a stuffy, dark banquet hall. Once I started looking at pricing, I had even more anxiety that I would... Read More not be able to afford the type of venue I had in mind. When we walked into Polo Fields' banquet hall, I immediately felt a huge sense of relief. It was bright, warm, and elegant. We looked at several more places after that, but Zack knew my heart was set on Polo Fields. There are so many reasons I am happy we chose this venue. Our tasting was phenomenal and I am probably biased, but wedding food has never tasted so delicious. Our final meeting with Donna was fun and we enjoyed every encounter we had with her. The packages are unbeatable; Polo Fields truly gives you a quality product for your dime. After our rehearsal, I got rid of all my fears because I trusted the choice we had made in Polo Fields and knew everything would turn out for the best the day of our wedding. The day of staff were amazing. Bob kept us all on track and the bartenders were raved about. Thank you for helping create our dream day, Polo Fields!

The polo fields banquet wedding menu of options is very easy to work with making the work for you very easy.... pretty much just booking some vendors like DJ, cake, and photographer as well as decorations.

The golf staff worked around us and let us have those 30 mins of peaceful time to allow the ceremony of our dreams! Caroline, the day of food and because manager, was very attentive and made us feel like everything was under control. She even had a drink waiting for the bride and groom before the grand entrance. In the chaos of the day, she put our minds at ease! The guests were ranting about the excellent service by the staff and the amazing food. I would highly recommend Polo Fields to anyone looking for a professional, gorgeous venue that allows you as the bride and groom to relax and enjoy knowing that everything is under control.

Our experience at The Polo Fields was probably the least stressful part of our entire planning process! From taking our first tour, booking the venue, our food tasting, and all of the communication leading up to our big day, the staff at The Polo Fields really went above and...

Sarah Jane was awesome at always being there with a quick answer whenever I had a question, and on more than one occasion she knew exactly what to say to help with all of my wedding planning stress!

Our biggest thanks goes to Bob, though, for keeping our wedding running smoothly and helping with whatever last minute changes happened to pop up. We were so impressed by his professionalism! He really helped create a great atmosphere for our guests. We also want to give one last special shout-out to Victoria, who always checked to see if we needed anything and brought us anything we asked for.

I keep pinching myself for realizing what an amazing value it is to get married here... We get a 5 star experience without breaking the bank! I've mostly worked with Donna, and she is very responsive to her emails. We have many people on our guest list with dietary restrictions and some that keep Kosher. Donna has been very accommodating and has been asking so many great questions to ensure that all of our guests will be fed a meal they can eat! Although we my fiance and I knew we would be going with the salmon for our reception, as we are having a Kosher-Style meal, Donna wanted us to enjoy trying other offerings at our tasting. She asked great questions regarding Kosher dietary restrictions and made sure I could enjoy the meal! To my fiance and I's surprise, we were given full portions at our tasting, and were allowed to take the leftovers home! Our entire tasting experience was positive... from the service to the food! To top off how amazing Chris and Donna are... there was a snowstorm on the night of our tasting and my car got stuck in the parking lot. Along with myself and my fiance, Donna and Chris helped my car get unstuck! Such sweet ladies!! My fiance and I are looking forward to our wedding at Polo Fields in August and are confident that is going to be a great experience!

Venue was beautiful, and the staff was wonderful. Waitstaff and bartenders catered to our every need, the event coordinator on staff that evening helped organize the wedding party and ceremony, they allowed us to do a rehearsal on site the night before for free, and we were able...

My planner dropped some boutonnieres off for the men and some flower pins for the women and they never got put out! Also, the staff never put the cake cutting tools near the cake, and they weren't fast enough in getting them to us when we were actually about to cut the cake, so we used a butter knife!

A fairy-tale setting

Reviewed on 7/09/2011 Tracy R

Chris, the wedding coordinator, helped to provide us the wedding (reception) of our dreams. The setting is breathtaking, the food was outstanding, the bar selection was excellent, and the service staff was top-notch. Chris knows just what details need to be arranged and... Read More when to take care of them. She ensured that everything flowed smoothly and exactly how we wanted the evening to run. She easily coordinated all of our vendors and everything went off without a hitch. I hate to sound biased, but I think ours was the best wedding food I ever had. We had an evening scheduled about 5 months before the wedding to come in and taste everything (it was all so good it was hard to decide!), and it all lived up to those expectations on the wedding day. We upgraded the bar for $5/head, which was totally worth it to not have the bottom barrel liquor. We also had an idea to have two featured specialty drinks that went along with our color scheme which Chris went along with, and it was a big hit. The service staff was very hospitable and efficient. They were very accommodating, even when we had a few friends and family show up that we hadn't been expecting. The staff easily worked them into the seating arrangement without any hassle. Their pricing was by far the simplest to work with--they gave us a price per head that included the open bar, tax, and gratuities, and all we had to do was multiply it by the number of guests. No surprises and extra tacked-on fees at the end, and my now-husband and I calculated they actually fell in the middle of the price range of the venues at which we were looking. This was surprising, given the beautiful location, great ballroom, and knowledge that we were the only event in the clubhouse that day. If you're in the Ann Arbor area, be sure to check out this venue! You won't be disappointed.
