Q & A with Brandi Montano Director of Catering & Wedding Sales DragonRidge Country Club

Q: Running a wedding and events operation at one of the most popular country clubs in the Las Vegas area must be exciting. What makes DragonRidge Country Club stand out?

From the moment guests drive through the gate to the club, they are impressed with what we tend to take for granted. Our landscape is exceptional, and the views are breathtaking. Our stone throughout the main Clubhouse is an excellent backdrop for photos. Our golf course is lush and beautiful, which also makes for
fantastic wedding photos. Our dining areas have astounding views, and our food is incredible. Guests leave raving about it, which is always great to hear. We are in a league of our own when it comes to weddings and special events. It also doesn’t hurt that anyone in Nevada who knows golf holds DragonRidge in very high regard. Almost daily, I hear, “I’ve always wanted to play DragonRidge!” Often fathers of the bride will say this during a site visit.

Q: DragonRidge is a private country club in a gated community. Does that impact people’s desire to select this venue for their events?

Absolutely. Clients and couples enjoy knowing that their event, especially their wedding, is at a private country club. The elegance of our club takes your “every day” event, and of course a romantic wedding, to the next
level. Our Grand Highlands Ballroom and Montrose Room offer views of our entire valley, including the world
famous Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas. There’s much less stress knowing your event is booked at
a private country club away from the bustle of the city below. After your event ends with a storybook finish, your guests who are staying on the Strip or in nearby hotel/casinos can continue their all night after party at
their hotel.

Q: If you had a friend who just got engaged, what would be your first bit of advice to them as they embark on wedding planning?

Get a well-known, experienced planner. They will save your mental wellbeing in ways which you have no idea. Planners will also help you stay within your budget and place your money where you value it more.

Q: The holidays will be here before we know it. Any advice for holiday parties?

We have several rooms available at DragonRidge Country Club to accommodate your holiday party needs. The earlier you book, the better. December dates often start booking up in August. We have plenty of space at DragonRidge Country Club, allowing us to host your event within the current social distancing requirements.
