Makray Memorial Golf Club





Just an hour from downtown Chicago, Makray Memorial Golf Club is an idyllic setting for the biggest day of your life. The charming clubhouse and lovely grounds have hosted life’s special moments for decades. A stunning outdoor ceremony takes place on the lush green lawn of the course, with a sparkling pond and views of the trees just beyond. Your nuptials are heavenly with all the people you love most present to witness your special moment. After the vows, guests retire to the stone clubhouse for an elegant cocktail hour, while you and the wedding party take flawless photos with the scenic fairways and natural elements of the golf course as your backdrop. Later, a festive reception in the grandeur of the spacious ballroom envelops you and your guests in romantic ambience. You’ll dine and dance on rich wooden floors, and you’ll raise a glass to toast your new life together.
