  • Wedding

    “The day went flawlessly. We did not have a coordinator but everything was set up so beautifully and nothing went wrong. The ceremony garden was stunning with an amazing view, the patio was perfect for cocktail hour and the tables and decor inside were put together perfectly! We had SO many compliments on how great the food was and the open bar added to the fun! We wouldn't have changed a single thing from our wedding day and we are on cloud 9 when we look at back at the pictures of the best day ever! Thank you Vista and everyone who contributed to making our day so special!”

  • School Event

    We held our Sweetheart Dance here and had a lovely experience. The space handled our group very well. We loved having access to the patio and we appreciated the use of the room. The staff was lovely to work with and the bartender was wonderful!

  • Fundraiser

    I highly recommend using The Vista at Applewood Golf Course for any event. I hosted a dinner and raffle/auction for 75 and the event was spectacular. It was a pleasure working with Mackenzie, the event coordinator. She promptly responded to my requests and questions. The staff at the dinner was helpful and friendly and easily accommodated last minute seating arrangements. The food was delicious! I received so many compliments from the attendees about the venue and food. Our group will be coming back next year for another fun evening at this beautiful venue.
