“Good Morning Trish. You did a fantastic job implementing the bride’s wishes for a fantastic rehearsal dinner. She was overwhelmed by the dinner.  It was such a great night.  The food was delicious, and the pavilion looked gorgeous. Thank you thank thank you for working with us and making it perfect.”

“I wanted to say thank you Trish for everything you did to make Pat’s party so wonderful! Everyone really had a great time and loved all the food. Thanks again.”
Michele D., October 2021 – Birthday Party

“Hey Trish! Kimberly and I wanted to reach out to say how much we appreciate all of the hard work you did on our behalf to make our wedding perfect! It’s impossible to describe how much fun we had, and between the ceremony, cocktail hour, and tons of dancing everything went off without a hitch. While we aren’t the biggest golfers, the next time we are in the area we will make sure to swing by and say hello =) and if you could pass on our gratitude to all of the lovely staff who helped us that night it would be greatly appreciated! Hope all is well.”

“Hi Trish!! Cayley and Charles here. We wanted to say THANK YOU once again for every single thing you did to keep our day running smoothly, and amazing last week. We were so happy with everything at the golf course. We will be sure to spread the word!!!  Thanks again.”
Cayley + Charles, February 14, 2020 – Wedding Reception

“We just celebrated my daughter’s wedding at your place on September 21. We had the ceremony outside by the pond, and hors d’oeuvres catered by the staff out back on the terrace. Once pictures were done, everyone was ushered into the ballroom for a very elegant dinner…hosting nearly 200 people. I wanted everything to be perfect for my daughter. The staff, especially Trish, went above and beyond to make this day even more magical then either my daughter or I had expected. The food was delicious and the steak was so tender it could be cut with only a butter knife. All of the staff worked hard to meet our needs all night, and I feel they did a marvelous job. Thank you so much.”

“The organization, the course, the timeliness of the food, drink delivery, help with cake, etc….was a great experience. Our son had a blast as did all of the boys. Being a coach…we will definitely consider a team building outing in the spring, as well as letting some of the some of the soccer community we are embedded in with know.”
Mike L, November, 2018 – FootGolf Party

“The boys loved it! And we will definitely refer anyone interested as I know they all agreed it was a great, different idea for a birthday party!”

“My husband and I got married in Las Vegas, unexpectedly, in May. We quickly put together our wedding reception “wish list” and booked the CBGC in Rising Sun to host our event Saturday 9/16/17. Trish, the wedding coordinator, was wonderful to work with – so accommodating and helpful. The staff at the event did an amazing job – the food was delicious, the service was excellent, the bartender was on point, the facilities were beautiful…and more! We went out onto the course for some photos with our photographer and the greens were lovely. Trish worked with us to ensure the beer my husband wanted for the reception (not normally carried at the golf course) was stocked and was very flexible when we had a couple unexpected bumps in the road in the week prior to the reception! Our DJ provided uplighting for the room which brought it to life! The new chairs are BEAUTIFUL and the view of the golf course from the room is perfect. We comfortably fit 94 guests for a sit down dinner, socializing and dancing. Our 11 tables plus sweetheart table, dj equipment, gift / card / memory table, DIY photo backdrop and props table, large cake table, and veggie display table all fit wonderfully within the room! I won’t disclose our budget or final bill, but I will say that it looked like a $15,000 event for far, far less! We are so pleased with the service and attention we received from Trish and her team at the reception, and I HIGHLY recommend the CBGC to anyone looking to host a wedding, party, event, etc. in the Rising Sun area! Thank you CBGC for making my dream reception a reality!!!”
Maura Paoletti, 5 Star Review via Facebook, September 21, 2017

“Beautiful grounds! Glad we picked them for our wedding reception. The staff was great very helpful we planned everything in less than a year. Will be going back for our anniversary!”
Roxanne Kotula, 5 Star Review via Facebook, October 11, 2015

“Hi Trish, I’m sorry for the late thank you, but I wanted to let you know what a great job everyone did for Drew and Oxana’ rehearsal dinner! The atmosphere in the tent was wonderful, and the food was amazing! We had so many wonderful comments from our guests and I wanted to let you know how much we all appreciate all you did!”
Debbie Shears, September 24, 2015 – Rehearsal Dinner

“Thank you, Trish. Geoffrey and I are so grateful to you and all of your staff for your hard work in making the evening a huge success. The families got to mix and meet one another, people moved from table to table as the evening went on which to me signals a good party. The food was lovely and the service both professional and warm. It was everything we could have hoped for. We are now safely if rather wearily home, but still floating on wedding bubbles! Please do tell everyone there thanks, again.”
Hope P., July 27, 2015 – Rehearsal Dinner

“We had our wedding at the North East location. I honestly can’t say enough good things about Trish and this location. So helpful!!! She went above and beyond. The day of our wedding it POURED. We had to switch to the ceremony being held under the tent instead of outside. Myself and the entire bridal party didn’t get a drop of rain on us from the building to the tent. The people who worked there walked everyone out with umbrellas. This place is amazing.”
Stacey C. – 5 Star Review “Amazing” via the knot, July 14, 2015

“I just wanted to let you know how wonderful the party was yesterday.  You and your staff were wonderful and took care of everything we needed for The Roberts Party plus went above and beyond. …the bartenders were funny and friendly and did a great job.  There was someone on your staff who helped clean up the flower mess that got way out of hand and wasn’t part of the plan when we were brainstorming “let’s just put the flowers together there so we don’t have to transport a bunch of arrangements” your staff helped clean up quickly and efficiently.  I was personally happy that the desserts from outside vendors were approved and you were able to provide platters that I hadn’t even thought about. I heard too many comments from our guests to repeat about how nice the facility and view were. I think the best thing I can say is in general Mom was over the moon and the family’s reaction is “we’ll be back”. Thank you!”
Laura Gwinn Vallee, November, 2014

“Thanks so much to everyone at CBGC in Rising Sun who made our wedding reception a huge success! Planning a wedding is very nerve wracking but Trish was there every step of the way to guide us. She met with my fiance and I multiple times and was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything was how we had we envisioned it. The food was wonderful and the staff was friendly and helpful. Everyone had a great time and it’s all thanks to Trish and her staff.”

“Thank you for allowing us to host our 2014 Volunteer Recognition Dinner at the Chesapeake Bay Golf Club, Rising Sun. The room, food and staff were all wonderful. We really enjoyed ourselves, and appreciate all the help in planning our event.”
Tari Moore, County Executive, Cecil County, Maryland

“Dear Trish and the wedding crew, On behalf of the Hahn and Kraft families, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! The wedding day was so organized and everyone is still talking about how wonderful everything was! You really put in the time to be sure our day was special. You are amazing! Thank you!”
Janine, Mike and our families

“It was good to learn right away that Trish Patterson [Chesapeake Bay Golf Club Event Planner] was well versed in group events and what needed to be determined as far as space, time, food and drink. Her knowledge of her trade was obvious and it was because of her guidance and recommendations that our event came off so beautifully. Trish was able to meet with either three, four or just one of us and keep us on track and within budget!  With much kindness, tact and always a smile – Trish led us through the process. The celebration of life went off without a hitch! The food, the servers who knew their craft, the atmosphere of celebration combined to make our event outstanding.”
Wanda C. Ward

“I want to thank you very much for accommodating our classmates from the Class of 1960 of Elkton High School this past Saturday. Everyone had such a good time visiting and they were so surprised with your beautiful facility and the delicious food. I am sure you will get some business from our group.”
Kay McCormick, HS Reunion Luncheon

“We are back from our much needed trip and trying to settle in. We have gotten rave reviews on the wedding for everything from the food to the way it was handled. Thank you so much for everything you did. Hope to work with you again in the future.”
Donna Nargi, Wedding Ceremony & Reception at Rising Sun Course

“I have been meaning to drop you a line to say thank you for helping to make the bar party a success. I have had very good feedback and wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to book with you guys again next year. I thought the space worked quite nicely. I hope your holidays were peaceful and blessed.”
Michelle Riddle, Bar Association Christmas Party

“…my new husband and I would simply like to give a huge thank you and a giant bear hug to your staff for the FANTASTIC job they did in handling our wedding Saturday, October 3, 2009.  The club was beautiful, the food was GREAT (my goodness our families are still talking about that food), the service was kind, courteous and timely.  We chose your club for the reasonableness of its price, its proximity for my family in Maryland/DC and his family in Philadelphia…we cannot sing Trish’s [Wedding Coordinator] praises loud enough.  She was patient, hard working and went above and beyond the call of duty…I think the bartender had as much fun servicing as our guests as they did talking to him.  …The wait staff was a pleasure to work with…What more can we say.  Again, thank you and you will see us again especially since my husband and the best man are avid golfers and enjoyed playing the club.  Yes, he and 11 of his friend started the beautiful day participating in their favorite past time-thanks to you and your staff.”
Louis and LaVora Washington

“Your staff at CBGC did an excellent job and our guests were very happy with their attention. The food was wonderful, and everyone told us how much they enjoyed everything…The outdoor setting was perfect, and your lovely grounds provided an awesome backdrop for the pictures. I’m still getting over all the excitement. So many great memories!…Mark and I consider the day a great success. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“I just wanted to let you know how much fun we had on Saturday.  You and your staff are top notch.  Everyone did a wonderful job and everything was beautiful.  We have had so many compliments on the food and the servers.  Jason said we should do this every year…Thank you again for everything you have done.”
Tara Price

“Ok, well for the day you guys were my chefs….I just wanted to pass on all of the lovely words I have received about how nice everything was.  They said the set up was beautiful and the food was amazing.  The best compliment came from my aunt yesterday when she said that it was the best wedding she had been to in a long time.  She said that everything from the food to the flowers to the view was beautiful.  Lastly, which I think is a wonderful compliment; she said if her daughter were to get married tomorrow, she would go to Chesapeake…You helped make my day the most beautiful day…Thank you.”
Michele Nicely

“We had the wedding on the first tee and a tent reception afterwards. Many people are so quick to jump and complain about things when they go wrong but I feel not many take the time to compliment when everything goes just wonderful. As we all know,  planning a wedding can be very stressful at times.  Even sometimes, frustrating.  After visiting many reception halls, we visited the Chesapeake Bay Golf Course. (My husband and son had golfed there and recommended that my daughter and I check it out). On our first visit, we met Trish [Wedding Coordinator].  What an amazing woman.  She made us feel right at home from the very beginning. We couldn’t have been more impressed, not only with the package that was offered to us but also for the way that we were treated.  There wasn’t even one time when I had questions that Trish wasn’t there to answer everything or anything.  She always made me feel so completely comfortable in calling her. The day of the wedding, Trish was right there.  Helping us with anything that came up.  Making sure everything ran so smoothly.  I don’t think the day could have gone any better. We have 3 other children who are not yet married and based on our experience we would definitely consider using your facility again.”
