As a bay area resident for over 35 years, as well as a hospitality industry professional for over 20 years, I have loads of experience and insight on all things wedding & special event related! I’ve been a sales director and wedding professional at several leading hotels, golf courses, and private catering companies throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and have owned my own wedding & event coordination company to boot!

And don’t forget to enjoy the planning process! Working with an experienced, reputable venue & coordination team is not only important, but will take the stress off of you so you may enjoy this very special time (and very special event) in your lives. I’d be honored to help in this process!

The Palmer Room is an intimate room within the Café, that is either open to seating for the Café or can be made private by closing the pocket doors between the two spaces, to accommodate small private events.
  • When can I hold events at the Clubhouse?
    The Palmer Room can accommodate events between the hours of 7am – 11pm Sunday – Friday and 7am – 2pm on Saturdays (a buyout of the entire space is required on Saturday evenings). The Café can accommodate events between the hours of 5pm – 11pm, every day (music must be off by 10pm in the tented terrace). We allow up to 4 hours for your event, with an extra hour for weddings

  • When do I need to decide on a menu and when is my guarantee due?
    The number guaranteed will be considered a final count and cannot be decreased. We will prepare for 5% over your guarantee as a courtesy; however additional guests will be part of your onsite guest count and will be billed accordingly. It is the responsibility of our clients to pay for the actual attendance or guaranteed guest count, whichever is greater. While we will do our best, we cannot guarantee our ability to accommodate additional guests when we have not been notified. Entrée Selections: We are happy to offer a maximum of two choices, plus a selected vegetarian option. Specific entrée choice and quantity (precounts) is the responsibility of the client and is to be confirmed ten (10) days prior to the event date, along with the final guaranteed attendance. Please provide an entrée card, escort card or place card indicating the choice of entrée for each guest. These cards should be in alphabetical order and turned over to the Event Sales Director or Event Manager no less than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the event.
  • What is required to ensure we reserve our event at the Clubhouse?
    A signed contract guaranteeing date, space, time and food and beverage minimum, in addition to a non-refundable 50% deposit is required. The deposit amount is calculated based on the room rental fee, in addition to the food and beverage minimum. Once received, you can begin planning your special day! No event is scheduled or committed without a signed contract and deposit.
  • Do you have a pre-qualified vendor list available?
    Yes – we have a list of vendors we recommend, but it is not a requirement to hire them.
  • Do you coordinate all of our vendors for us?
    With the exception of upgraded linen and specialty chair rentals, we do not contract your vendors because of the importance of your personal relationship with them to create your special day. It is important that you advise your Event Sales Director in regard to deliveries and pick-up arrangements for any outside vendors contracted.

The food and beverage minimum is the amount you will be responsible for spending before tax and service charges are applied. You can also add on Ceremony Coordination.
