I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding support we received for the 2 events we put on at the Glendale Wednesday.

The food was excellent, the staff did a great job, and our clients went away very impressed with the club. Of the 130 people who attended, 75% of which had not been to the club, there were a lot of WOW's.

One guest, a member at the Rosedale club from Toronto ($95000 non equity share) spoke very highly of everything and asked to come back in-season to "experience this great club".
Please pass the message on to the servers, chefs and team! You guys rock!"

"Hi Craig,

Leanne and I would like to say thank you to everyone at Glendale who made our party a huge success.

First of all the room with all the decorations looked amazing.

Everyone raved about the food and the wait staff including Kyle were just awesome.

Please pass on a heartfelt thank you for a job well done to everyone involved!!!"


"Dear Matthew;

I wanted to let you know how much everyone enjoyed both the meal and atmosphere at the Glendale during our annual dinner and awards ceremony on May 10, 2016.

Your staff provided superior service throughout the evening to ensure our experience was the best it could be. Special accolades go out to Hanna and Jaime for their attentiveness and affable demeanor during our event.

My sincere thanks and gratitude to you and your staff for a wonderful evening!"

"Hello Craig,

I hope that the Glendale has been keeping you busy! I have finally gotten over my honeymoon dreamy phase and I wanted to let you and your staff know how much I appreciated their hard work. I loved seeing our pictures on the website and thought that a recommendation was due.
First of all I could not dream of having a more relaxing wedding and that was all thanks to Matthew Heathcote and the rest of the Glendale staff. They exceeded all of my expectations. As I neared the wedding date Matthew answered all of my questions with speed and diligence. He paid close attention to all the details of our day and took away the stress that comes with planning a party for 150 people.The evening flowed seamlessly and the food was amazing.

Chef Ariel Baluyut and his staff made a truly delicious meal. The portions satisfied even the hungriest and a resounding "yum" was all we heard from our guests. Everyone was served together, as this must have been done with great organization from those in the kitchen, to the excellent wait staff. The late lunch was put out at the perfect moment when guests had danced off their dinners.
The bar and wait staff were fantastic. They were attentive to our guests and kept everything moving smoothly. Not only did they help set up the table centrepieces but they packed away all our decorations at the end of the evening which made the next day that much easier.
The Glendale was the perfect location for our wedding. As our guests arrived, the beautifully maintained entrance gave an air of elegance. Once inside the view of the first tee was breathtaking with the fountain, lush green grass and flowers. As we had pictures here it saved us from having to cart around all of our family from spot to spot. The grounds served as not only the perfect backdrop to our wedding but also our pictures.
Thank you again for making our day more exceptional than we ever could have imagined,"

Natalie & Peter

"Hi Craig,
We would like to inform you of the excellent service we received at their wedding reception.
First, we can’t express how fabulous the wedding reception turned out and how it could not have been any better without the help of Matthew Heathcote.  We commend him on the excellent service that he provided.  He was very organized and kept things going with perfect flow.  As well everything was clean and orderly.  He also saw to it that any little extra requests were met without delay.  It was a pleasure working with Matthew.
The wait and bar staff gave wonderful service.  They were courteous and responded to their duties with a standard of excellence.  At the end of the evening they kindly assisted us in packing our things away so the cleanup was effortless.  That was so greatly appreciated at the end of a long day. They went above and beyond.
We can’t give enough praise to Chef Ariel Baluyut and his staff.  We received nothing but compliments from our guests for the delicious food.  Not a negative response came our way.  Both the salmon and the beef were cooked to perfection as many of our guests gave nothing but praise.  We also appreciate that Chef Ariel Baluyut provided meals for those guests with special dietary needs as well as special meals for the children in attendance.  The lunch that was laid out later in the evening was equally as fabulous.  The food was served in a timely manner and was not too hot or too cold.  It was perfection!
With the help of Matthew Heathcote and the fine staff at the Glendale, Natalie and Peter’s wedding reception appeared effortless and was met with perfection.  We will always remember this joyous occasion as a fabulous day. 
Thanks to you all!"

"Hi Craig,

My husband and I wanted to thank and recognize the awesome staff you have. They did an amazing job for Dave and Janelle's wedding. The set up was perfect and the food was exceptional. We were so impressed with the service and all the thought, care and details that went into making this day so special for Dave and Janelle. Everyone really raved about the facilities and the food and had a great time!
Please pass our thanks on to your wonderful staff."
Karen and Robert Hildebrandt


We all had a great time at the Glendale Clubhouse at the 40th anniversary of my brother and his wife. The food and staff at the Glendale were just amazing. A very BIG Thank You!! to all of your staff.

"Hi Craig,

Thank you very much for everything you did for our wedding! We couldn’t thank you enough!

Glendale is like the best kept secret, none of the guests heard of it but they were all very impressed afterward!

Once again, sincere thanks.  We could not have pulled this off without you! Wish you all the best! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need client testimonial or reference.

Best Regards,"

Carrie & Gord

"Hi Craig,

They are still talking about it!!! Our ADTEL Christmas company function at Glendale was, by far, the best one we’ve had since we started our business in 1985. What a rare treat!

Everything was pretty much flawless – the room, the ambiance, and the decorations. But the most memorable part of our evening was the great service by you and your staff . You made everyone  feel welcome and completely at ease which I very much appreciated because  some members of our group had never been to a private club before last Saturday evening. They were very impressed to say the least.

How about that meal! Again, your staff outdid themselves. What a feast! We have never had a meal anywhere close to being as delicious and professionally presented as the one your team prepared for us.

In closing, please book our company for Christmas dinner next year. I wouldn’t dare go anywhere else!

Thanks again for a job well done.

Warm regards,"

Gerry Gerling

"To the Staff at the Glendale,

Corey & I want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day the best it could be! We will always cherish in our hearts the memories from that special evening.

All staff went over and above for us and we are very, very grateful to everyone. The entire evening was magical – from the amazing meals to the dancing and to the details that made the whole experience stand out.  Our friends and family expressed to us how beautiful everything was at the Glendale

Thank you so much!

Kindest Regards"

Corey & Jennifer Smith  XOXO

"Hi Craig,

We would like to say an ENORMOUS THANK YOU! . . . You were wonderful from the first moment we met you while in the early stages of planning our wedding all the way until the final moments of our reception. Thank you for all your hard-work . . . creativity . . . your “up for any challenge” attitude, for the tenderness of your heart and your ability to get us laughing when needed!

We couldn’t have asked for anything more that what you and the staff at the Glendale gave us!"

Love Kjerstin & Darren

"Hi Craig,

Our daughter’s wedding reception was at the Glendale last Saturday, June 16th, and I would like to let you know how much we enjoyed our entire experience there! From the initial contact with Stacey to the event itself we were well looked after and completely confident in everything we had planned.

When we heard that Stacey was leaving we did have some concerns but as soon as we met Lisa all of those concerns evaporated. Her bubbly personality and wonderful suggestions were just the thing we needed to help us plan this wonderful event for our daughter. As for the day itself what can I say… The room was amazing, the serving staff were efficient and professional and again Lisa was there to meet any concerns or questions we might have had. As for the dinner…Wow! You have an amazing chef and kitchen staff! How they can make a meal for 125 people taste so good is beyond me!! We have had nothing but rave reviews from our guests…

Again, thank you for the wonderful experience and we will be sure to recommend the Glendale to anyone who asks!"

Charlene K


Thanks to you and the staff For a great mothers day brunch.

I know it was a busy day for your group but in our opinion the event came off very well organized and your crew clearly worked very hard to make the event a success."

Thanks from the Rayburns

"We held our daughter Stephanie’s wedding on July 1st at the Glendale and wanted to commend you all on the wonderful location and to thank you for allowing us to hold our special occasion there.

From beginning to end, we had the most relaxing, pleasant experience, and although much overdue, I wanted to still take the time to extend the highest compliments to your wedding planner/organizer of events, Stacey Nutt.

The staff made our experience so easy that we still look back and think “wow!!”  They gave us great advice on the food menu, even calling in one of the chef’s to help us with our choices. They were always available to answer any little question or concern we had.

Staff took us on a couple of tours as the grooms parents wanted to view the facility and they recommended wise choices on the midnight lunch and allowed us the maximum of time possible to confirm our numbers.

The day before and the day of the reception we dropped off items, checked out where everything would go and explained to where we wanted this and that placed.  The staff provided excellent advice on the layout of the head table, dinner, guest book table, projector etc. The entire set up and decorating was efficiently handled and we did not have to worry about a single thing, they saw to it all, down to the smallest detail.

The staff was excellent…friendly, consistent, attentive while being as unobtrusive as possible.  Any little detail that needed attending, we only had to mention to Tracy or one of the staff and it was taken care of at once.

Everyone raved about the food.  We have attended 3 weddings since then and although very nice, the banquet provided was no where near the quality and selection provided by the Glendale…our thank you’s to the chef and kitchen staff as well.

We felt that we had received excellent value for our money, and have absolutely no regrets about the cost or our choice.  (thanks to the clean up staff who allowed my husband and myself to pack a little doggie bag from the leftover midnight lunch to eat in our car on the way home…we had no opportunity for a break and a bite to eat, with all of our obligations as hosts)

The new room was beautiful and Stacey was right in that it needed little embellishment to make it classy and beautiful.

We would unreservedly recommend your facility, wedding organizer, and banquet (especially the desserts..second to none!) to anyone who was looking for this type of accommodation for a special event."

Dan and Rhonda Johnson

"Thank you very much for all your help with our Kids Christmas Party!  You are a pleasure to work with and your Team did a fantastic job for us so thank you and please pass on our thanks to the others.

We received many, many compliments on the food so hats off to the Chef, and everyone thought the venue was beautifully decorated!

We would love to host our party at the Glendale again.  Can you hold the same Sunday next year please?

Again, thanks a bunch, we had a great party!!!"

Leanna Chimko

"Just wanted to pass along our thanks and let you know how appreciative we are for the tremendous job you and The Glendale staff did for my daughter’s Sweet 16 birthday party last Sunday.  The clubhouse was decorated so beautifully and the service was top notch.  Your attention to detail is amazing.  The food was so delicious and so very well presented.  I already thanked Chef Ariel for his hard work on Sunday, but please thank him again.  Everyone just loved the food!

The Glendale Clubhouse is a beautiful facility and we are very fortunate to be members of this fine club.

Thanks again for everything!"

Chris and Maria Donnelly

"Dear Craig,

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Glendale Golf and Country Club and your staff for the wonderful experience we had with our daughter’s wedding.  The professionalism, assistance, food, venue and everything in between was absolutely the best that anyone could wish for.  No question was left unanswered, no detail request left undone.  As I said today, we have heard nothing but enthusiastic positive comments from everyone who was there.  It is total quality that you produce and I would highly recommend you to anyone.

“Thanks” seems insufficient, but it is the word we are given."

Deb Bocking

"Craig and Ariel,

Thank you very much for the breakfast you arranged for us this past Sunday.
It was a pleasure dealing with you – you made it so easy.
We got great feedback from our guests as to how nice the food was.
Thank you once again."

Stan Greenspan


I would very much appreciate you passing on compliments to Chef Ariel and the staff.  We are very fortunate to have such great staff. We were out to the club last night for Mother’s Day and we sat on the lounge side and just ordered off the menu.  There was a ton of people there still and the numbers of people served during the day were amazing.  Notwithstanding the staff was flat out with the buffet guests (and were all visibly tired) we were well taken care of by Ashley and Lindsay and the food was outstanding.  The pesto pasta dish was simply amazing (we took an extra order for Alex’s lunches) and the steak sandwich was equally outstanding (Carlos Cabral took a steak home for his bride (Portuguese Mother’s Day).  It is going to be a very good year.  Nice to see all the hard work pay off.  Congratulations again on the award as Canada’s Golf Course Manager of the Year

Very deserved!"

Barry Sjolie

"Hi Craig,

I just wanted to say that your crew did an outstanding job for our WSI Fall Classic golf tournament. This was my first time organizing the event myself and both Stacey and Greg made my tournament a fantastic event. Both Stacey and Greg went above and beyond to make it as easy as possible for me to concentrate on what I had to do.

Please pass along a huge thank you to all that helped out and we look forward to having out tournament there again next fall.

P.S. the new look on the outside is amazing and cannot wait to see what it looks like next year."

"Thank you so much to you and the staff of the Glendale.  We had a wonderful day and you and the staff were so friendly and accommodating.  The tables were decorated with the same care as we would have used. All our guests remarked upon the quality and preparation of the food. The weather cooperated to allow us to take pictures on the beautiful grounds and to spend time on the outdoor terrace.  In the evening, the banquet room was splendid with the tiny white lights glittering.

Thank you again for all you contributed to make Thea and Kevin’s day so memorable."


"Glendale Everybody,

I just wanted to pass along our thanks again for everything you did and took care of leading up to and including the day of our wedding. We couldn’t have imagined a better day and everything went off without a hitch. The table set up and decorations looked beautiful and you did a fabulous job setting the decor and feeling for the day.

Our guests were very impressed with the food, as were we! They also commented on the great service both for dinner and at the bar. Please be sure to pass along our thanks to the kitchen staff and also the bartenders who were working that evening.

Thanks again!"

Lesley & Jacob Reimer


I’m forwarding this email to express how delighted my family and I are after our first year of membership at the Glendale.  As a new member family were expecting to have to be around for a couple of years until we began to feel comfortable and “at home” at the club.  I can tell you first hand within the first couple of months we felt as though we’d been members for years.  Your personal welcoming attitude and effort to say hello whether I was playing golf or bringing my family in for dinner is very much appreciated.

We noticed how quickly the service staff and pro shop group not only learned our faces and names but also really made efforts to become familiar with who we were, what we liked, etc.  Greg and his group were a pleasure to deal with in the pro shop and the gang in the club storage were always friendly and quick to consol me after I complained about my “questionable” rounds. Amber always made an effort to say hi and her serving group made coming to the club house for breakfast, lunch, dinner etc a real pleasure.  My wife and kids loved the pool and overall we found the food exceptional on a regular basis (our compliments to Chef Ariel).

Being exposed to golf course management through my company, it was great to see the Turf Team on the course grooming, fixing, maintaining and improving on a regular basis.  Dealing with the office on the accounting set up has been easy and accommodating. I’m very excited about the future capital improvements to the course and the club.

I wanted to pass this onto you to thank you and the entire staff for your efforts.  It is definitely noticed and appreciated. I’m often asked by my friends and business associates how my first year at The Glendale went, and I’m quick to express my above comments.

Thanks again for your efforts and the efforts of the entire staff at The Glendale.

Looking forward to another great year!"
