Overlooking the natural beauty of the golf course, Wilderness Ridge is the premier location for Lincoln’s wedding receptions, corporate functions, retirement dinners and all your special events! Created from harvested timber and constructed in Montana, the clubhouse carries out its "wilderness" theme with its hand crafted woodwork throughout, natural stone landscaping, and beautiful rustic artwork. Our impressive wrap around cedar deck situated on the rear of the building lets guests view surrounding lakes, streams and views of holes from both courses.

We were lucky enough to have our wedding reception at Wilderness Ridge, and they made the evening absolutely perfect! We already loved the atmosphere of the venue, but the service us and our guests received that night was awesome, we got so many great comments on the food, and the process leading up to it was smooth and stress free! I couldn't recommend Wilderness Ridge enough. Thank you for making our wedding reception everything we hoped it would be!

"We had our wedding here on NYE 2018. It was spectacular and that was partly due to the amazing venue, food, and staff. We worked with Isabel who was amazing to help us plan out our event and stay in contact with. We had so many compliments on our venue and it's beauty. The food was also amazing and we did stations. Everyone was very impressed! Thank you Wilderness Ridge for helping make our day amazing!"

"Wilderness Ridge was beyond phenomenal for our wedding! They made both the ceremony & reception exceptionally perfect. Not only did they have breathtaking backgrounds for us to take pictures in front of, they also were more than accommodating to everything we needed and wanted all day long.  The food was absolutely delicious. Our day was beyond perfect and we are forever indebted to you for giving us those beautiful memories to hold onto for the rest of our lives."

"We had the best experience at Wilderness Ridge for our wedding this past August! Growing up outside of Nebraska, I wasn’t sure how to begin picking a venue after we got engaged, but Wilderness Ridge was far and away the best option for our wedding. Everything from the food to the event setup was included in the package that we picked and the staff went above and beyond to make our day truly special. We rented both the Wedding Island and Yellowstone ballroom, where they allowed us to decorate...

We sincerely appreciated all of the different options for our reception menu, which provided plenty of choices to fit our budget. The dinner options we chose were delicious and the presentation of the buffet itself was very well executed.

Throughout the whole wedding day, and for weeks after, we received many compliments on the beautiful scenery of the Wedding Island, as well as in the building! Our guests from all over the country told us how much they loved the beauty of the one of a kind venue at Wilderness Ridge. 
Lauren Viglianco
Excellent service and venue! It's on the pricey side, but totally worth it! The staff took the stress out of our wedding day by being very accommodating, the venue was beautiful and perfect, the food was delicious! The first comment my husband said after the wedding was, "Can we do it all over again?"
