"When I think back on why I joined a club it was  primarily to use it for business.  What I discovered is that it greatly enhanced my personal life, my family life and my well being…. I played golf every weekend with  my two boys.  When my wife took up golf we played at least once a week.  We made great friends that will last a lifetime.  I  watched both of my sons grow  up playing  golf which is one of the only sports a father and  child can play as the father gets older...tennis , baseball, basketball, none of these will be a competitive game to both of them."

Dear Doug,

Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation for how great the wedding was on Saturday.  Everything was absolutely perfect.    From the wedding rehearsal, that went with flawless execution from your staff, including little touches like making sure we had something to drink, to the room setup (gorgeous, I hope you took some pictures), to the ceremony, party and Sunday brunch.  Everything exceeded our expectations. 

We have received many telephone calls, e-mails and texts from friends and family that were there.  Each one said the same thing... the service was outstanding, the food was the best and the wedding was great fun.  And that is what we wanted.  We wanted each guest to have fun.   I want to compliment you on coordinating and managing a great event and country club.  As I said in my speech, Ravinia Green holds a special place in our heart and you and the RGCC team are keeping our dreams and memories alive.  It is truly appreciated. 

Please pass along our humblest of thanks to everyone at RGCC.  From the valets (who treated each guest special), the receptionist who made sure that each person knew where to go, to the maintenance staff who created the venues, Alberto (who worked non-stop), the wait staff, the bus staff, the chef and his complete team, Allison (who has worked with us for weeks), Rick (who came through in the clutch on Saturday afternoon), the golf professional staff and golf chairman who allowed me and my sons to play Saturday morning to continue a tradition (I played golf with my father on my wedding day at RGCC) and yourself.  I am sure I am leaving someone out.  I apologize for that. 

Ravinia Green is the best country club on the North Shore

Good Morning Alison,

I just want to say THANK YOU for all your hard work!  You and Alberto are such a pleasure to work with. You definitely put in the hours to make everything go so smoothly for our gala.  Your expertise and talent made all our jobs so much easier. Everyone raved about the dinner and how delicious everything was.  Kudos to the chef! The Candy Bar was absolutely beautiful and such a big hit.  You added so much more to the table than I had anticipated.  It was displayed so beautifully and I'm glad we had it in the ballroom.  People really enjoyed it all night long :)

Dear Bill,

Just wanted to say thank you for a most lovely party.

From the moment our guests arrived to the late hour they left, everything was perfect.  We wanted to especially acknowledge Chef Larry.  The dinner was wonderful.  And the dessert…Our guests were very impressed!

And the service personnel…Alberto was everywhere helping everyone.  Adon, Pat, and Martin were attentive to every need.  Ravinia Green does indeed have a fabulous service staff.

My mom’s 90th birthday party was a huge success.  She was so very happy.
And for that we thank you so very much.

Dear Alison, 

We had a fabulous Bar Mitzvah party for our son at Ravinia Green on April 6th 2013!  The space was perfect – we were able to utilize several rooms so that the teenagers had their own space during the cocktail hour and dinner.  This allowed for a great flow to the party.  Alison was really pleasant to work with and was very patient with all of our details and last minute changes.  Chef Larry did a wonderful job and was very eager to please us.  The staff was great and the service was excellent.  A fantastic party all around!

I had a business dinner tonight.  It was excellent.  The service was outstanding and the food was excellent.  From the moment my guests came in the door, to the drinks in the lounge to dinner, desert and coffee, the RGCC team exceeded my expectations. Please pass this to Alberto, the wait staff, the chef, the kitchen staff, receptionist and the valets. 

Thank you,
