Wedding & Banquet Testimonials
Dear Chris, We would like to thank you and all of the wonderful people at Forest Hills Country Club for a wonderful day on Wednesday. Forest Hills is so scenic and you graciously arranged the St. Andrews Room so it was beautiful and functional for our meeting and presentation. It was a fantastic way to begin the holiday season.
We appreciate your assistance and professionalism and our special time at Forest Hills.

Thanks for your role in making the Women's State Am Tournament such a success. FHCC provided a terrific venu and the staff was very helpful and responsive. We heard lots of positive comments and could not have been more pleased with the week.

Spencer Wedding, May 2016
Just a quick note to say thanks for all your help in making the Guilford Prom a truly memorable event. We have had great feed back, mostly that the kids felt that they were in a special place for their special night. You and your team make FHCC one of Rockford's finest venues for all types of special events.
Guilford Prom, May 2016
We are so happy with how our event turned out! Thanks to the efforts of your team, our big night went so smoothly and we were truly able to relax when we saw the fruits of our planning, which was executed so seamlessly. I know we were relatively last-minute/late with some our plans, but you never made us feel unwelcome and were always willing to humor and accommodate us.
We cannot tell you how many people enjoyed and appreciated the beauty of the setting. The venue really came alive with the lights and decorations. The reception area when you first come into the building was a perfect spot for guests to gather prior to the main reception upstairs, and as you know it was a snowy day, but the entryways to the Club were easily navigable for all. Magda was very comfortably accommodated in the locker room for photographs, time with friends while waiting, and final preparations. We loved how the head table was setup and how our desserts were displayed, especially the cake and its cutting. Overall, the ambiance was romantic in a way we had not fully expected.
Earlier on, we had had a pleasant experience with a tasting of some options for our dinner, and our requests for vegetarian meals, children’s meals, and above all zabiha halal meat were met with readiness, which was key to us successfully being able to host a variety of guests and their dietary commitments. The dinners on the night of the event itself were so good - we got many compliments, in particular on how the chicken was moist (as is unfortunately not too often the case with weddings we have attended), and also on the wonderful bread rolls (we LOVED the pretzel buns!).
The staff were all so friendly throughout our process, from allowing us to use a printer at the club while we were setting up, to being patient with children who were a bit rowdy the night of, to generally being charming when interacting with our guests.
We could not have asked for a better night and a better venue; we know that many of our guests got to experience a new venue that they were pleasantly surprised to learn about, and we will continue to highly recommend your team. Thank you for your hard work, patience, and good nature!
