We had our wedding at EGC, and everything was just wonderful! The staff was a real pleasure to work with. They were responsive to calls and emails and never seemed rushed when meeting in person. They were also extremely flexible - not like at a hotel downtown where you feel like you are being nickel and dimed for every change you want to make from what is "standard." They even had their chef learn to make a dessert when we provided the recipe because we wanted something different from a traditional wedding cake. It was so delicious - I still get compliments on that, the cream of asparagus soup, and the rest of the food they served! We were able to bring in the wine for dinner (with a corkage fee of course) because we had a connection with a vineyard out in Napa, allowing us to serve better wine than we could have otherwise afforded. The day of the wedding everything was perfect. We took pictures on the golf course and had cocktails in the room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the course. Appetizers were plentiful and the servers who passed them were excellent. Dinner was fantastic - we served a plated dinner with a choice of 4 different entrees. The only negative was that there was a fair amount of time between courses. If I did it again I would just do one less course (minus sorbet) and it would be perfect. We did a late night food station that was a big hit. We had open bar all night and there were always servers taking drink orders. I wish they would have had my vodka behind the bar but they changed their liquor selection just before the wedding. No harm done though, someone just ran out and got me a bottle. :) I can't recommend EGC highly enough for your event!
We recently had our wedding reception at Evanston Golf Club and cannot say enough good things. Everyone was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the whole planning process. We felt completely comfortable the entire time that they were really on top of things and our big day would be exactly what we were hoping for. The club coordinated directly with all of our vendors and did not involve us at all as far as delivery times, ect. That really helped to lower the stress level the day of the wedding! When we arrived to the reception, we were blown away with how beautiful everything looked. It far exceeded our expectations. We had cocktails in the room that overlooks the golf course which was absolutely beautiful. The appetizers were delicious and service was impeccable. We had a seated dinner in the main ballroom. The food was amazing. It was all served hot and on time. Service was fantastic the entire night. We could not believe how many compliments we received from guests on the food and the club in general. We are confident we picked the perfect place for our wedding reception and would not change a thing. If you have an opportunity to hold your reception at EGC, you will not be disappointed!!
This club was just redone a few years ago. Fine course right off Dempster St. They have a great club dinner...great steaks.
