Planning Events in a Budget Economy

In today's economy, many companies and families are tightening up budgets on meetings and social events. However, having a smaller budget doesn't mean you can't have a memorable event.

Planning a meeting on a budget:
For many businesses the economy means less spending and a keen eye on budgets. This often means cutting company events and downsizing meetings. At Wilderness Ridge we want you to know that you can host a successful event and still stay within budget.

One hassel free way to save at your next meeting is by choosing from one of our meeting planner packages. Our meeting planner packages have pre-selected options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and break-time snacks. The packages are a great choice for all-day meetings and are priced to fit any budget.

The Eagle Club Membership is another great money saving option for business who host multiple events throughout the year. By signing up for this yearly membership you will receive free room rental Monday-Thursday all day and Friday until 4pm. You also recieve free rental on A/V equipment and discounts in the restaurant and golf shop. Call Brandi at (402)434-5114 to find out how your business can start saving today.

Planning a wedding on a budget:
To keep your wedding budget in check many brides choose to go the "do it yourself" route but nothing beats the experience of a skilled wedding planner. Our sales manager at Wilderness Ridge has planned countless events and knows what's best to make your wedding a success. If you are planning your wedding with a strict budget let our staff know as soon as you start planning and we will do everything we can to accomodate you!

An easy way to save money on your wedding reception is by hosting your wedding on a Friday evening! You can enjoy the same great atmosphere at a reduced cost. Lower food and beverage minimums allow for you and your family to host the event of your dreams while staying within your budget.

Another money saving suggestion is to host your rehearsal dinner and reception at the same location.

June Junior Golf Camp Photos!

This week we are hosting our June Junior Golf Camp! We have just over 30 kids participating and ages range from 5 to 13. The junior golfers are split into three age groups and each group has been working on a new skill each day. On Monday ages 5-8 worked on chipping with Maureen Farrell, ages 9 and 10 worked on their golf grip and swing with Mike Schuchart, and ages 11 and up practiced putting with Head Pro Chris Thomson.

I've been snapping photos each morning and it has been so fun to see the kids getting to know each other and having a chance to learn new skills. Many of the junior golfers could show me a thing or two out on the course! Click Here to see photos from the past two days. I'll be updating the photo album throughout the week so be sure to stop back for more updates! If you'd like me to send you a copy of the photo via email you can reach me at

Also, if your junior golfer wants to get out on the course more often check out our Junior Golf Membership. This three month membership (June, July and August) allows juniors unlimited access to the Championship Course Monday - Thursday as well as unlimited use of our practice facilities! The membership is just $799.00 and will be prorated based on the date of sign-up. Call 434-5106 for more info or to sign your child up!
