We had our wedding here in October and could NOT have been happier with the way everything turned out! As stated in previous posts, Katie is amazing! She is sweet, patient, helpful and knowledgeable! She alone made this whole process so easy! Personally, I didn’t even need a wedding plan we outside of her and I didn’t feel as though I even needed one at any point! The Venue itself is gorgeous and no one regretted the flights and drives to get to this amazing location. Additionally, everyone remarked on how good the food way (we did the buffet option #2). If I had to do it all again, I wouldn’t change a thing! The only caveat is that the Open bar tab was quite expensive bc you have to pay per drink and apparently our friends drink way more than we anticipated 🙂 (Sedona doesn’t allow drink packages so this is the case for any venue up there – not just Sedona Golf Resort) – Amanda P
Hands down the best wedding venue in AZ!
OI cannot even begin to express how happy I am to have chosen SGR as our venue. This place is unmatched. The views alone are priceless, but what you get for the money (very reasonably priced by the way!) cannot be beat! The staff are fantastic and have done about a billion weddings (or so you would think by their level of expertise). Katie (coordinator) was incredible and it honestly felt like I had my own personal wedding planner without needing to hire one! The staff even bustled my dress for me at the appropriate time of the event (like what other venue does that?!?)! The staff handles all of your table set up and tear down so you don’t have to stress about that the day of. They even keep an eye on your cards/gift table and make sure things are put away in a secure place at the appropriate time of the night. I am truly blown away by the SGR and I really feel like we got so much for our money. So many of our guests have been raving about the venue and what an incredible location it’s in. I highly, highly recommend SGR. There is truly no other venue in Sedona, or AZ in general, that can beat it! – Mandy K.
Sedona Golf Resort/Katie Cook
Our experience with both the venue itself and Katie were flawless. Being that we were many states away while wedding planning, Katie was very attentive to our dozens of emails and she responded almost instantly. She was extremely helpful with all aspects of wedding from colors to recommendations of other vendors to use. She was also very easy to talk to and made all the planning easier through and through. We give her an A+. The rest of the staff that was with us on our wedding day were just as pleasant and upbeat to spend the evening with, especially the bartender! We would highly recommend the Sedona Golf Resort for many reasons. Plus, the views are breathtaking! – EMILY
My wedding was perfect at Sedona Golf Resort
Our wedding at Sedona Golf Resort was amazing, beautiful, and the entire day was PERFECT. The red rock views and the golf course provide breathtaking views for your wedding day. I would highly recommend this venue for planning your wedding day. Katie and the staff at Sedona Golf Resort provided exceptional service to our guests. The food was delicious and they offered a full bar service. Adriana and Scott also made sure that the bride and groom had appetizers, dinner served, and a cold beer at all times. Thank you for making the wedding of my dreams come true. In addition, my husband and his groomsmen played golf the day before our wedding and absolutely had a great time which I highly recommend you take advantage of the grooms golf package if you have your wedding at SGR. – Rich
Everyone that we encountered at Sedona Golf Resort was wonderful, but Katie Draxler was beyond outstanding. Katie is diligent, responsive, professional, and an absolute joy to work with. From the day I met Katie, I felt comfortable that she would make sure our wedding day was exactly as we dreamed of. Everyone kept telling me to prepare for something to go wrong, but nothing did, and I credit so much of that to Katie’s experience and ability to coordinate with all of our vendors. The ceremony and reception spaces are spectacular, the food was delicious and the professionalism of the staff (especially Katie) is unmatched. We had the wedding of our dreams at Sedona Golf Resort and I would highly recommend it to any couple! –Lara
To say this location is a dream, is an understatement. From the beginning planning stages through the end Katie was absolutely incredible with helping us by answering every question we had, helping us to think about the details we wanted, and being incredibly attentive on the day of the wedding. If you’re looking for a venue that not only has an incredible view/location, but also an amazing person to guide you and help you with every detail, then Sedona Golf Resort is your place! – Danee

The prettiest venue with the best service
Katie and her staff were amazing. From the beginning of planning our wedding Katie was so attentive, helpful and clearly cared so much about making our day perfect. The day of our wedding couldn’t have gone better. Katie and her staff we professional, kind, fun and always there for anything and everything. Katie is clearly meant to be a wedding coordinator because our wedding was flawless. She placed every decoration so perfectly. Even during a pandemic, Katie made sure I was not stressed at all. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue and a better staff. – TORI
My Fall in Love Wedding
My now husband and I chose Sedona Golf resort because of the obvious competence, professionalism, great pricing and delicious food. Katie our coordinator who heads SGR weddings was absolutely fantastic- and it didn’t stop there. Her ENTIRE team and wait staff went above and beyond. This experience was made as stress free as absolutely possibly by the SGR team. A whole hearted thank you for making this experience so special and keeping it that way the entire time. Might I add, Katie had a baby in the middle of the process but we were never left alone! She and her team were always responsive and helpful. The wedding experience from start to end was flawless. Thank you again! – CAROLYN
SGR made our day remarkable
The Wedding planning and actual event went smoothly. Katie was very responsive to our needs and request. The scenery there was amazing, makes photo taking alot easier with their views. The groom golf was a very remarkable experience. The food was top notch! Thanks for all the hard work day of, Maggie was very attentive and a step ahead of our desires. Thank you SGR! Samantha
Best Day Ever
Had the wedding of our dreams at Sedona Golf Resort last weekend! Katie, who serves as Director of Events at SGR, is an added bonus when you book this venue as she more or less fills the role of wedding planner. She answered every email I sent her (and there were a lot) immediately, even while out on maternity leave and made my planning process for an out of state wedding so much easier!
Want to give a special shout-out to Magdalena, who is the Banquet Manager, and served as our day of coordinator in place of Katie who normally does wedding day coordinating as well but was unavailable the week of our wedding. Magdalena made everything ran seamlessly on our wedding day from doing event set up to setting up bride/grooms suites and coordinating me and my wedding part as we walked down the aisle to our songs. She also made sure that every drink that was served to our guests had our custom drink stirrers with our dog on them, which was so special to me, made sure my husband and I were well fed during that busy day, and most importantly made sure we always had a drink in our hand!
We just can’t say enough amazing things about SGR. The views for the outdoor ceremony are unbeatable as well as the views from the reception area of the red rocks through the floor to ceiling windows that sit right behind the dance floor. All of our friends who traveled from out of state told us it was their favorite wedding they’ve been to. Everything from the food to the bar service was top notch. We did buffet style for dinner and all of our guests loved our food selection. The ones they raved the most about where the coconut shrimp, the stuffed mushrooms, steak skewers, and crab cakes!
The best part of this venue is that it’s kind of a one stop shop for vendors which means you don’t have to also worry about shopping around for catering and bar service because it’s all just part of the package at SGR. In addition, all the other vendors that they have on their recommended list are top notch and they all work incredibly well together which makes the whole process run super smooth. Katie’s recommendations led us to our amazing photographer, DJ, florist, cake baker, hotels, and even rehearsal dinner space!
10/10 would recommend! Sarah
Sedona Golf Resort
Katie Cook, Sedona Golf Resorts wedding coordinator, is what every bride needs. I had been planning our wedding for almost two years due to Covid and she had been nothing but accommodating and helpful. Her email response time is less than 24 hours which is unheard of! The day of wedding, she made sure all the vendors showed up on time and made everything perfect. The staff was so sweet and helpful. They made sure our glasses and tummies were full. The appetizers and dinner was so yummy everyone I can’t say enough good things about SGR.
Beautiful views and great service
Sedona Golf Resort is a beautiful and well-managed wedding venue. We had a wonderful time at our wedding in September, which was postponed from our original date in April. You never think you’ll have to cancel (or postpone) your wedding date. Then a global pandemic happens. Right away, Katie offered us new dates and helped talk us through our options. She followed all the government rules she needed to, and by the time September rolled around, covid restrictions allowed us to have 50% venue capacity which was way better than nothing! Katie was very responsive from the beginning–and helped answer many questions that a wedding planner would. We met with her twice after booking the venue and were able to try some of the food before finalizing our menu. Katie worked hand-in-hand with our vendors to ensure a smooth wedding day, and I have absolutely no complaints on communication, overall pricing (which was very average/fair by the way), food, set-up, or flow of event.
My only hiccup was I was not expecting my guests to drink as much as they did. I guess that’s what happens when people stay home for six months. So, my only advice to future brides and grooms is to budget extra for the bar (you get back what you don’t spend in most cases) and be sure to think about if you want guests to be able to order shots/doubles. It can be hectic to make decisions about increasing the bar tab night of, so maybe set a top line limit for yourself. Guests can always pay for their drinks once the limit is met.
Otherwise, I highly recommend SGR hence the 5-star review. Katie, Scott, Mags, Jeanette, and the other staff were very pleasant to work with and all of my guests have been raving about the event with the beautiful red rock background.
“Sedona Golf Resort was the PERFECT setting for the wedding of our dreams. We live in the PHX area and wanted our guests to be wowed by the beauty of Sedona and after searching a whole weekend for the ideal setting we finally found Sedona Golf Resort. We knew from the moment we pulled up that this was the perfect location for our wedding. While everything in Sedona is beautiful-the service provided by Katie and the staff is what really made our wedding day a dream come true. We booked the venue almost a year and a half in advance so had several months of several questions. Katie was ALWAYS available and timely in answering our questions. She made suggestions and recommendations that all worked out perfect. We know from the first meeting with Katie that we were in good hands and our wedding worked itself out beautifully thanks to Katie’s hard work. She absolutely made the wedding planning process enjoyable, and we can honestly say she aided immensely in eliminating all the stress you hear couples have on their wedding day. Our day was stress-free and could not have gone any better from start to finish. Our group is definitely a “party” group. We had approximately 120 guests at our wedding and the service for dinner and at the bar was fantastic. Everyone loved the food and with the buffet option was served as fast as 120 people could be. Our bartenders also made sure everyone was served quickly and were able to manage our rowdy group’s constant requests for drinks and shots! There was not a moment that we didn’t have a drink or a question unanswered. We are incredibly happy with Sedona Gold Resort and would recommend the venue and Katie to anyone!” Alyssa & Jonathan
“We had our wedding at the Sedona Golf Resort and words cannot even begin to describe how incredible and amazing it was, but I will try 🙂 From the very beginning, Katie has been so nice, friendly, and easy to work with. We looked at numerous venues and after visiting the Sedona Golf Resort, we knew this was the place!! My family and my now husband just loved her, and I feel like she could be a close friend of mine. I had many interactions with Katie, and everyone was positive, she spends as much time with you as you need. With the SGR the whole place is rented out for your wedding, no sharing with any other parties. The golf the day before the wedding was fun for my groom, his friends, and my dad. There are really nice hotels within walking distance, so guests don’t have to drive. The big day was absolutely perfect, no hiccups, it all went flawless and smooth. I have to say a big part of that was because of Katie and her staff. I had no worries once we stepped on the property, she worked with all the vendors to make it perfect. If you can imagine how special you feel on that day, she makes you feel even more special! I had numerous guests of our wedding say how many weddings they had been to and ours was exceptionally beautiful. In addition to the scenery, the golf course, amazing staff, our guests raved about the food! Which is so important! I can’t thank Katie and the whole staff at SDR enough for helping make our day such an amazing time. I would recommend the Sedona Golf Resort for a wedding venue 100 times over, I wish we could do it all over again! We will be back to visit on our upcoming anniversaries :)” Amy & Alec
“Katie and her team will knock your socks off from the moment you even mention a wedding at Sedona golf resort. It was the most special and memorable day of my life, not only because i married my best friend but because of the details. The space, Katie, her team, the ceremony, the views of the red rocks, the location, the food, did I mention the FOOD!? The service, there’s too much to say… my wedding was 100% out of a fairytale and Sedona golf resort is entire reason it was!” Cassie & Ryan
“I highly recommend Sedona Golf Resort for your wedding. Katie and her team made me feel important, special and most of all they made me feel like a bride. I will never forget all the extra details they provided to make my wedding special. The red rock views are unforgettable, the reception space made me blush and Katie herself made everything come together perfectly. Guests are still coming up to my new husband and I bragging about how it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to. I would choose to have my wedding here over and over again. Absolutely breathtaking… thank you Katie!” Mandy & Tyler
“My husband and I knew from the very beginning of our planning process that this was the venue for us, and man were we correct! We checked out a bunch of other venues in Sedona, but none of them had the amazing customer service that the Sedona Golf Resort had with their staff. From the beginning Katie Draxler and her team were amazing. I can’t express enough with words how fabulous they all were. On the wedding day we primarily worked with Katie, Brian, and Britney. Their kindness and professionalism were unbelievable. I couldn’t have asked to work with better people. They didn’t treat us like a client, more like family. Katie made the planning process stress free and easy for me. So on the big day it was the same. Stress free and easy. They took care of all the details. If my dress was hunched up Katie would automatically take care of it without my having to ask. They took our centerpieces and created the most beautiful reception area. The whole event was perfection. I couldn’t have asked for anything any better and as a bride, that makes me very happy. After the ceremony, while my husband and I were taking photos during the cocktail hour, they made sure to keep bringing the food all the way out to us so we could have a bite and enjoy our choices. That was definitely appreciated since neither one of us had eaten since the early morning and were pretty hungry. They were always very attentive to us and whatever needs we may have had. I would highly recommend this resort and Katie to anyone looking for a beautiful venue, amazing customer service/professional team, and stress-free wedding. Also, the food tasted amazing, and our guests were very pleased that they were able to receive two main courses instead of the traditional “fish or meat” option. Our one friend is still raving to us about how great the shrimp was! Again, words don’t do justice how happy we have been with our choice to work with Katie and the Sedona Golf Resort. They are simply amazing.” Ashley & Ryan
“I cannot say enough how perfect Katie and Sedona Golf Resort were! The process was incredibly easy-even planning from Texas. We knew the minute we arrive to the venue that it was the place for our wedding, we didn’t look any further. It is beautiful, classy and impressive without being pretentious or stuffy. I had a very laid-back casual wedding, but it would be equally perfect for a more formal setting. Just like any wedding, not everything was perfect, but Sedona Golf Resort was! I recommend them in a heartbeat knowing it will only make your special day even better and for the price, they are competitively priced and worth every penny. I’m originally from Phoenix and the next day as I enjoyed the downtown Sedona area, locals asked me where I got married at. When I told them-they would just make this expression and say “wow!”, so when the locals think it’s awesome, that is a great sign it is really that great.” Vanessa & Rodney
