Indoor Ballroom 


Smaller events may enjoy the more intimate atmosphere of our indoor ballroom. Accommodating up to 100 guests, a dramatic staircase, a vintage chandelier, and soaring ceilings of the atrium set the the tone indoors, while two private balconies invite guests to enjoy beautiful daytime views and stunning starlit nights.

“Miranda went above and beyond to accommodate my family, friends, wedding party, and vendors. Miranda made every attempt to stay in touch and keep me on track leading up to my big day, without pressuring me or making me feel uncomfortable with timelines. Miranda is a great asset to River Ridge and does an exceptional job with coordinating special events. You can tell Miranda truly loves her job and her place of employment (the venue itself). Miranda helps to make events such as weddings unique and special for each customer. From booking, to tours, to communication, to coordinating with vendors, to making sure things run as planned on the event day - she did it all.. Miranda deserves to be rewarded for her outstanding effort put into my event, as I know this effort only carries over into all her duties at River Ridge.”

"Miranda was so incredibly helpful with planning and executing our wedding and reception! She gave me lots of good ideas and vendor suggestions and was so incredibly nice to work with. She seemed about as excited for my wedding as I was! And the venue was incredible. I appreciate that they offer a back up plan of inside the clubhouse should it rain. Would only work for a little bit smaller weddings, which is what we had (70 ppl). Such a relief not to worry about that. But we lucked out and had incredible weather and had our wedding and reception outdoors and everyone is still talking about how beautiful it was. Nothing like dancing on the pavilion while the sun is setting in the background. And the INCREDIBLE bridal shots that were taken on the golf course - those will last forever! Highly, highly recommend! River Ridge could not have been more accommodating and the cost is very reasonable!"

"My company held our annual holiday party at River Ridge Golf Club and I cannot say enough good things. To start, the space is beautiful - spacious without being too big. We had about 80 people confirmed and received closer to 100, and fit very well. River Ridge allowed us to decorate however we wanted, and even let us set up that morning so that I had time to clean up any issues, despite the fact our party wasn't until evening. They also supplied the bartender who was a pro at handling the crowd and keeping everyone happy. We were allowed to bring our own caterer and DJ, which was important to me, but we used the club's tables and chairs, which kept things simple. The best part, however, was Miranda, the event coordinator. From my initial contact to post-event, she was kind, professional, and friendly, as well as patient with my endless questions. She helped me plan the layout (turns out, I have a REALLY hard time picturing table sizes), met with me multiple times in advance, and even pitched in on cleanup (as did the bartender, who lugged our heavy stuff, something I am still grateful for). All emails were answered quickly, and during the party, she checked in with me regularly and subtly to be sure everything was going smoothly. The party ended up going off without a hitch, and I already plan to book it again next year. Everyone should book River Ridge (unless of course, you're aiming for a time I'm looking at - dibs!)."

“I had the privilege, as an event planner, to work with River Ridge Golf Club and Miranda Day, Sales and Event Planner at River Ridge and I honestly can say I have never worked with anyone who was more kind, accommodating, and helpful to me and the bride, than Miranda. Unfortunately, we were hit with the storm Hurricane Matthew and under a state of emergency the day of the wedding so sadly missed out on the spectacular views of the outside of the venue. Miranda, however; worked with us to move the reception to the ballroom. She worked tirelessly to make everything perfect. She certainly was a calm in the storm! Thanks for the opportunity to work with such professionals!”
