We held our wedding here. The venue was amazing! There was so much delicious food, no guest went hungry! The venue was able to cater for all of our odd requests as we had a cultural wedding. Nothing was too small or too hard. We had so many great comments from our guests about how amazing everything looked, which was above our expectations. The event coordinator and staff were super helpful with organising us for finishing off the last touches. The event coordinator was extremely helpful, providing suppliers that fit into our style of wedding. They were flexible with the changes requested by us. They informed us about everything as we went through the night. We highly recommend anyone looking for a function or wedding venue.

Hi Branka and team,

I want to send you and your wonderful team my personal thanks and acknowledgement for the amazing support and service you provided to us at the wedding on 13th April 2019 (Jordan and Ross Gorrell).
Your staff went beyond our expectations with their professionalism and attention to detail from set up to pack up.
A special thanks to Anna and her warm words of support in the lead-up and on the day – it was really comforting, thank you.
Your wait and bar staff were great, nothing was a bother. They smiled the entire night! Having worked functions and weddings myself, sometimes smiling can be tough, but not for your staff – they are a true credit.
The chef and catering crew, often the faceless at a wedding. The food was great, so many people commented on how they enjoyed their meals.
The venue was perfect! I cannot recommend how great it was. Our guests all commented on what a lovely venue it was and how friendly the staff were.
Finally, thank you Branka! I knew we would be in good hands and we were indeed – Beyond expectations once more.
Please pass on this email to your staff and feel free to use it as a testament to all of your hard work.

We would like to say a big thankyou to the staff at Federal! We had our wedding reception at Federal and it was an amazing experience! The staff were so helpful, both in the lead up to the day and on the day. The service at the reception was impeccable, our guests complimenting the staff on their efficiency and always being friendly and smiling.They consistently checked in with us throughout the night and made sure we were comfortable. To top it off, we got some amazing photos on the golf course surrounding the club! It made our day so easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Federal as a venue for any type of function!

The staff were brilliant, attentive and easy to deal with. The location was beautiful and the photos look amazing. Fabulous value for money. Definitely a hidden gem and the best wedding venue I have been to.”

“We had our wedding reception at the Federal Golf Course on 17 October. The venue is spectacular with sweeping views of the Woden Valley and the Brindabellas – especially when there is a brilliant sunset. Grant and the team made our night very pleasant, everything was really easy to organise. They laid out the tables perfectly and the light ornament hanging in the ceiling added that extra ‘something’ to the wedding. The food is fantastic – no one was left hungry! They also happily catered for our GF and V friends! I highly recommend this venue for your wedding reception!”

“The food at the federal golf club was amazing! The decorators that the golf club used for the canopy and fairy lights made the room look spectacular. Grant at the golf club was extremely prompt in answering my many questions and facilitated our every request. We had 135 people attend our wedding there and I would highly recommend the golf club for anyone’s wedding. The per head price for everything was also quite reasonable”

“The team at the Federal Golf Club delivered a night to remember. We held our ceremony out in the beautiful lawns and our reception inside the club house. Everything went off without a hitch. Our guests are still raving about the food! We are so glad we decided to have our special day at the Federal Golf Club.”
