Venue Review - Chemung Hills Golf Club

While it has great potential and a mostly classy look, Chemung Hills is starting to show it's age.  Some minor repairs and attention to detail could easily make this the perfect spot for weddings.  For now, it's a little rough on the edges.

What you can't see in these pictures is the chipped up pillars and the hole in the wall by the dance floor.  Minor things, but it definitely detracts from the classy venue this once was.  Regardless, it didn't stop the guests from having a great time on the dance floor!

EDIT 2015: This venue has REALLY turned around.  The food is
 GREAT! Everything looks clean and is in good shape!

The food was decent, but the service was quite an eye-opener.  The caterers asked me to release the tables to the buffet, which I had no problem doing, but they waited almost 20 minutes to tell me this!  Typically, it is the responsibility of the caterer to release tables as THEY know when the food is ready and THEY know when to hold up to replenish empty pans.  I have done this before at small outdoor parties to help out when the caterer is a bit under staffed, but never in a hall with 6 or 7 servers just standing around.  It just seemed very unprofessional on their part.

Lastly, I'm going to finish by saying I REALLY hope they can turn it around as I like the layout, location and atmosphere at Chemung Hills.  It's only 5 minutes from home and has a lot of potential.
