Nolan and I want to thank you so much for everything the catering team did to make our day so special. I have had countless compliments on your food and service. As well, your late night snack of pizzas was a great hit! Our day went without a hitch and I know we owe a large part of that to the Derrick. The lights on the patio added the perfect ambience for our guests and allowing us the ability to have our buffet outside allowed for more comfortable room for our guests. Your team was nothing but polite and professional to work with. 
I will continue to spread the word of the amazing service you provide and will look to the Derrick again for any future events.

The Derrick was a fantastic wedding venue! We had our ceremony outside and our reception in the Banff and Jasper rooms. It was easy to meet with and email the catering manager whenever we had questions. I may be biased because it was my own wedding, but I think they served the best food I've ever had at a wedding! The appetizers were a hit (some of the servers barely made it out of the kitchen before their trays were empty) and the buffet was incredible! Service was wonderful too!

1) What has been your first impression of the Derrick Club? 
Our initial concern about joining up was the preconceived notion that clubs like this are full of snobby people. It couldn’t be further from the truth. We’ve already met a bunch of really great people, and look forward to building some great relationships for ourselves & our children in the years to come.

2) Any suggestions on how we can get you familiar with the club more efficiently?
Not really. Everyone there is super awesome at answering any questions we have, and very quickly, so we have never felt that we’ve been forgotten.

3) Is the club everything we said it would be? 
Yes. The club offers so many things to do for the whole family. The main reason we joined was for the childcare, and it hasn’t disappointed us. Great care at a great price. Also, my son loved his 1st go at swimming lessons. More to come. It’s a real improvement from where he came from, as there is a lot more individual attention given at the club. Finally, my wife was blown away by the golf course when she was watching our son at golf camp last week. 

In general, we find the club is a place to go where everything slows down and you get to relax & recharge, and enjoy some family time.

Hey guys,
I just wanted to write a quick note. This is my first year as a golf member at the Derrick, and I wanted to let you know I think the course is in great shape. The greens are some of the best I have ever played. I have worked maintenance on golf courses for 20 years (including at the Mayfair, Windermere, Highlands and Country Club). These greens are some of the best I have seen! Anyway, just wanted to write a quick note and say the course is in awesome shape and to keep up the good work. Your work is appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed.

Hi Jan,
I have been meaning to send you an email for the last while – I am finally getting around to it (better later
than never).
Amanda and I are relatively new members – we joined April 2014 and activated a new golf membership this last year. (btw – I love the new course)
I just thought I would let you know how happy we are with our decision to join – all of your staff are great, from John N, to the front desk staff, to Faouzi & his food services team, to Trevor and all of his golf staff – they have all made us feel very welcome, more than we could have ever imagined! We feel fortunate to be a member of the Derrick and are reminded every time we drive into the parking lot. (which is a lot!)
Thank you and your board for all of the work you have done, we have one of the premier private clubs anywhere!
Warmest regards,
Doug & Amanda

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the aquatics department from our family! We joined the Derrick this past January and were happy that we were able to easily get our daughters into the next swimming lesson session. We had previously been in year round lessons at another facility for almost 2 years. Our youngest daughter had never been in an unparented class and refused to put her face in the water, and our oldest daughter had such a fear of the water she asked to wear a life jacket even in the teach pool. Fast forward 6 months and weekly lessons at the Derrick pool with instructors Brady and Chelsey....both girls are now diving under water, swimming rocketship across the pool on their own, swimming on front and back with a flutter board alone in the deep pool, doing beginning front crawl across the pool on their own and more!! We are so happy and excited for them and their new confidence and love of swimming, and we want to thank you all so much for your part in it!!
Have a great summer, we will see you again in the fall!

Joining the Derrick Club was one of the smarter things we have done as a family – Lexi really enjoys the Derrick; has gone golfing with her swim team members, had friends over….and so on.  Great people, great fit…thanks for helping to make it happen Kathy!

Good day,
I would like to say how impressed I was with my experience today (and in past call on the same issue) and how professional Melissa at the front desk was. Mostly, I was comforted at how she took on my problem and personally sought out a solution. This to me is of a high quality service skill that cannot be taught, but over a great time.
I want you to know how appreciative I am of her and her assistance.
