TESTIMONIALS from some of our weddings and Events
April 14, 2019 Vintage Car Club Reservation
On April 14th, the Vintage Car Club of Kamloops had a very successful Spring Garage Tour. As my mother would say, the army marches on its stomach, so one of the highlights of the tour was our lunch stop. I would like to thank you and your staff for the great lunch and service that everyone enjoyed. We thought we would get about 30 people on the tour, but we ended up with 49 in all. Thank you again for helping make our tour a success.
December 11, 2018 Villas Christmas Party

Hi Bill: I have talked to quite a few of golfers and dinner guests about the July 29th event. All the same feedback..an excellent job done by both the pro shop and Food Management staff. Well organized as to the course itself and the food was great. Your staff should be commended as they were great and all seem to enjoy their jobs which reflects in their service. Everyone had a great time and want to do it all again next year!

November, 2017 Labrie Retirement Party
Hi Bill: The party was great. The venue was appreciated by all who attended. Your staff looked after our every need. Many of the guests commented on the great food and service. Many thought the ham was out of this world. Several groups did not know that your restaurant provided this type of event service and commented that they will come back again. No one complained about anything. We were very pleased as you promised us that would be the case.

October, 2017 ROCKY MOUNTAINEER
Year two of the RM tournament at the Dunes was nothing short of excellence. The feedback I received from our RM team was very positive.
The food, staff and course were all at a high level which the Dunes I know delivers.
Thanks for another great tournament. Looking forward to next year.
Dwayne, Rocky Mountaineer

Everything was great and we felt as though we were looked after very well. Would definitely recommend the dunes to anyone looking to get married in Kamloops.
August, 2017 Warner Rentals Tournament and Banquet
I just wanted to send this email this morning to extend our sincerest gratitude to you and your staff for the incredible service we received at our tournament on Friday. Your organization and communication made my job so much easier. Matt at the pro shop was great to deal with. He was always quick to help if we needed anything and was very patient at the end when we were trying to collect everyone’s score cards. A Big thank you also goes out to Ron. He was absolutely wonderful and made registration (which could have easily been very chaotic as we had some customers who wanted to make changes to their teams when they showed up) so easy for me. I was able to make sure our customers were happy and it could not have gone as smooth as it did without him. The kitchen and dinner staff were terrific as well. I heard nothing but great things from our customers about the food and service they received. You have a very solid team of people there and because of The Dunes we were able to give our customers an amazing experience.
I know we would love to book with you guys again for next year. I also know that this is only possible if your experience with us was great as well so please let me know if there were any complaints or issues with our staff or customers or if you have any feedback at all.
Thanks again Bill. We had a really wonderful evening!
August, 2017 Galbraith 80th Birthday Celebration
“I will certainly recommend The Dunes to anyone that is planning a function. I had very positive feed-back on the buffet and I most highly recommend the young lady and young man that attended us that evening, they could not have been more helpful and polite”
May, 2017 School District 73
Thanks for hosting us yesterday. The course was in great shape and the food was delicious. Nothing but positive reviews from all players and coaches!
May, 2017 Green Shirt Tour
I just want to say thank you for a great golf experience at The Dunes. The course is in great shape, especially the greens that are second to none.
Your staff exceeded our expectations. The pro shop staff went out of their way to get us going in the morning and even recovered a wallet that was left behind and got it to its owner in Kelowna.
The restaurant was open at 7:00AM which was a big help to our group and the service and food were first class.
Thank you for a great experience and you can count on us returning next year.
Stan Watchorn and Jim Hernstedt

October, 2016 Westsyde Community Development
Hi Bill –
All 3 of us who volunteered from the Westsyde Community Development Society to staff the Pumpkin Patch table agreed that it was a great idea. And please thank your staff on our behalf for their efforts in laying the pumpkins out!
The location of the pumpkin sales table worked very well – people had no trouble finding us.
We heard only positive remarks from the people who wandered through the patch, many of whom took photos with their children holding pumpkins, sitting on the bales of hay. Those bales, strategically placed around the patch, were a brilliant idea. People really did make good use of them for photo ops.
The great variety in shapes and sizes of pumpkins, of course, was a big selling feature! The sheer number of pumpkins to choose from helped a lot.
We could have continued selling past 2:30, as many of the vendors also wanted a chance to purchase a pumpkin after the Craft Fair was over.
Your generous offer to share the proceeds is very much appreciated, and we would love to be included in next year’s event, should you decide to do this again. (And the food was great, too!)
Thanks again on behalf of myself and Lucie, and Gerri, and the rest of the WCDS,
October, 2016 Rocky Mountaineer
Hi Bill, I just wanted to say a HUGE Thank you for a sensational day last Friday, our Golf Day was a big success! Your team is great to work with, they’re very organized, professional, good communicators and they made my job much easier! Thanks for accommodating our special requests like the Drinks girl out on the course, Hot dog and Bevvie at the turn & the Hospitality table on the 10th – appreciated! The course was in good shape and everyone had a terrific day, thanks again for making it a success!
I hope that we can do a repeat next year!
Cydney and all the team at Rocky Mountaineer

August, 2016 Wedding
To whom it may concern, my name is Jeff Chapman and I was one of the groomsmen in the Radmore wedding on July 30th Id like to give a huge shout out to one of your employees : Jayce (or Chase not sure) young kid. He was phenomenal. I can’t say enough good things about him,he was exceptionally detail orientated, and he put his heart into everything he did. Extremely professional he represented the Dunes in the best way possible in everything he did. The bride and groom even noticed his effort and mentioned it to me. From one employer to another I really hope that you appreciate the work and effort he puts into your events. The kid went above and beyond in every way and I hope that you realize what a terrific employee you have. Sincerely, Jeff Chapman
June 16, 2016 Tournament & Banquet
Hi Bill, I’d just like to express, on behalf of the Norkam Beef on Fire guys, our sincere thanks for helping us put on a great round of golf and supper! The course was beautiful, the staff was AWESOME (with a couple of Norkam grads helping out – Ryan and Nic), the supper was really good, and the beer special was great! Thanks also for the door prize rounds and appy coupons, the guys will hopefully be using the this summer!
We will definitely be back for a future Beef on Fire! 100% approval rating! The guys were really impressed with the course – some had not played it before, so I expect you will see a bit more business from them…
Anyway, thanks again for the time and service, we really appreciated everything!
June, 2016 Wedding

May 4, 2013 Wedding
We had a wonderful time, and owe you a big thanks for going the extra mile with great suggestions, solving issues quickly and doing a lot of the set up for us, in addition to the unexpected ‘cake cutting’.
The meal was very good – we had several compliments on the food quality and cleanliness of the Buffet, prompt service with plate removal, etc..
Thank you again for all your help – we will be recommending the Dunes to our friends and co-workers.
September 1, 2013
I also wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and the staff out there. Each and every single person we had contact with was absolutely amazing and friendly. Our bridal party is still talking about how much fun we had driving around in the golf carts! Im so happy with the decision to do everything out at the Dunes!
