Weddings & Events
Welcome! We’ve been expecting you…
Special occasions are defined by distinct moments in time and remarkable places… An elegant and oh-so-private wedding reception. A fiftieth anniversary party for 300 guests. A high-level corporate planning session. Momentous events such as these require a setting that rises to the occasion: The Clubhouse at the Orinda Country Club, recognized nationally as "Best of Weddings, West Coast," by The Knot Magazine in is also favored by corporate thought leaders as they retreat to our serene setting annually.
The Historic Setting
Orinda Country Club’s historic Spanish Mediterranean style clubhouse has always played the consummate host. The hand-carved beam ceilings, ornate mahogany balconies, and contemporary furnishings create an atmosphere of timeless beauty and elegance. On the club terrace, the sweeping views from the 1st tee out across the San Pablo Valley and Orinda hills provide a magnificent setting for occasions big and small, intimate and larger than life. It is an exclusive domain set on 250 very private acres. A natural preserve of Alders, Bays, and Oaks. San Francisco is but 20 minutes away, yet you are sequestered from the frenzied modern world. What more fitting stage for your social or corporate event? Presidents, sportsmen, and film stars have all had occasion to visit. May we add you to the list?
Arriving at the Orinda Country Club is, in itself, an event. Part movie set, part getaway, it is a secluded retreat with a warm Mediterranean welcome. A place well-equipped to turn any engagement into a unique experience.
The Grand Ballroom places the accent on grand with its high ceilings, chandeliers, balcony, and fireplace. Our gracious Club Rooms lend an elegant mood to smaller gatherings. Whether the invitation is to close companions or an entire corporation, a professionally trained staff is at your command. The dress is black and white, the service is china, and the dining is, of course, very fine. As befits a private club with close ties to the Napa Valley, our cellar boasts some of California's finest vintages, plus, a full bar awaits in the Fairway Lounge.
Your Personal, Private Club
We are a private country club, yet see all our guests as members in spirit. This brings a sense of belonging, along with a number of distinct privileges. Our chef is happy to create custom menu tastings, accommodate special dietary requirements, and present seasonal choices for your approval. If you prefer, we also offer a set list of dining choices. In either event, the wine steward is available to recommend ideal wine pairings. Our event coordinator will make sure that "the time of your lives" and "happily ever after" begins upon arrival. Every detail will be handled with exceptional care, making this kind of personalized service the hallmark of the club. Whether you are a member or a guest member, once inside, you are in your club.
