Calabasas Wedding Venue
4515 Park Entrada
Calabasas, California 91302
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could invite your friends and family to a wedding at your own private club—even if you’re not actually a member? At the Calabasas Country Club you can, because the entire clubhouse, inside and out, is totally yours to enjoy for the duration of your event.
This picturesque venue in the hills of the west San Fernando Valley has an interesting history and a place in the hearts of classic cinema buffs. Once part of the Warner Ranch Group, it served as a rugged backlot for such notable films as National Velvet, Carousel, Robin Hood, The Good Earth, Giant and Showboat. In honor of that heritage, when the country club was built each of the 18 holes of its verdant golf course was named after one of the famous films. Today, you’ll be the ones getting top billing in your own “love story” production here.
Special events, which are welcomed in the evening after the golfers have gone home, are usually held outdoors to take advantage of the beautiful setting. The expansive clubhouse patio, landscaped with islands of roses and magnolia trees, is large enough to host your entire celebration. Have your ceremony at one end, against a gorgeous backdrop of the rolling, pine-studded golf course with the 18th hole’s shimmering lake and bridge in the foreground. Then, while you’re posing for photos beside the lovely waterfalls, bridges and old oaks on the fairways, your guests can mingle over cocktails. Finally, serve dinner at the other end of the patio, enhanced by strings of bistro lights glowing overhead.
Indoor options also showcase the verdant surroundings. The new bar area upstairs in the clubhouse is custom-made for cocktail receptions. Conceived by famed designer Serge Agraphiotis, it’s extremely inviting, with an abundance of warm wood used in the bar, the ceiling beams and detailing throughout. Lots of natural light flows in through two walls of huge picture windows that frame stunning views of the golf course. When it’s time for dinner, everyone simply steps into the adjoining Dining Room, a modern and casually elegant space that also overlooks the course through its own floor-to-ceiling windows. From either room, guests get an extra visual treat: a spectacular sunset.
Whether you dine buffet-style or opt for a more formal seated dinner, it should be noted that the executive chef has over 30 years’ experience working coast to coast in a range of venues, from noteworthy bistros to a 5-star resort. Although he specializes in California cuisine, his dishes reflect many regional and ethnic influences, and he’s happy to accommodate special menu requests.
Since this private club is yours for the night, there’s no need to rush through anything. Go ahead and savor the experience: linger on the patio with a nightcap…catch up with friends and family members…and maybe even see a few meandering deer. What a perfect way to end the festivities!
