Everything was wonderful. The staff was very attentive and friendly, the food was great, and the room (Helderberg room) looked beautiful. It was the perfect day!

Normanside Country Club is a beautiful place to hold any event. We used their patio area for our wedding ceremony and they're inside dining area for our reception. Both areas are beautiful for any type of event. Normanside Country Club does their best to work within your budget within reason. Emma is the wedding coordinator at Normanside and does her best to make your vision of your day come true. This is a great place to hold an event if you don't want the staff hovering on your big day. They are there just when you need them and always seem to know when to be around they are willing 2 do anything they can to make you happy on your day

We were married at Normanside in early September and I cannot enough good things! The entire wedding planning process was really seamless. Dave and Emma made sure that all my many, many questions were answered right away and with a kind voice. They guided us through the whole process and the week of our wedding they really put us at ease with last minute things and questions. Emma was amazing the day of, anticipating all our needs. I was so glad to have her there.
The bridal suite is so glamorous and spacious. I couldn't imagine getting ready any place else. Alan and the guys played 9 holes in the morning and they had a blast. Our guests were raving about the food for weeks. The service was exceptional. The room and dance floor were the perfect size, no cramming at all! One of the highlights for me was when we did our portraits on the grounds. With the vast property of Normanside our photographer was able to find the most beautiful natural wooded setting. We had the most perfect wedding day imaginable. I wouldn't change a thing and would do it all over again at Normanside! Thank you!

I "let go" of my little girl on 8/22/2016 at the Normanside Country Club. I approached the day with apprehension as "letting go" of my daughter was very hard for me." Dave Hostig made the process much easier. From early in the morning when this gang descended on my house with wedding planner Katie O'Malley and Photographer Joe Elario, to the wedding ceremony at St. Mary's in Albany, to the most magnificent reception I have ever attended, the day went off perfectly and elegantly. Behind all the planning for the entire day was Dave Hostig. When I asked my daughter about any detail of the day her response every time was "you have to ask Dave". The Normanside grounds were magnificent, the food was exquisite, the music delightful, creating a wedding reception right out of a movie. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding that they had ever attended. The only thing that might need a little shoring up was the groom - Dave Hostig - of course that's because he's my son-in-law. Deb & I are proud of you son.
