Why We Like This Place

For years, Marin County's tree-studded Black Oak Point was where the Bay Area's Renaissance Faire rev­elers gathered each September to recreate Elizabethan England. These days the area's beautiful oak woods sweep down to the striking Clubhouse at StoneTree Golf Club, the Bay Club's premier North Bay golf and events property. With its stone columns, picture windows, rafter beams, and handsome dark furniture, the Clubhouse evokes the grand lines of a luxury mountain lodge.

This is a place carefully designed to host weddings and other events, indoors and out. The attractive en­trance hall has an elegant, understated ambiance and is highlighted by an expansive window at the far end that drinks in the light, flanked by a romantic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Throughout the building, warm-hued walls are accented by rich, dark-stained wood. From the entrance hall, guests can head off to the 77 Bar & Lounge or to the Ballroom, the Clubhouse's main reception space.

Every view from the Ballroom is absolutely lovely, ranging from a spring-fed waterfall, three ponds, and Black Point's towering oaks to the intricate stonework alongside the Club's main road. The Ballroom can be split into smaller spaces, and features an adjacent arcaded balcony that's visible through tall windows and accessible through French doors. The balcony's sheltering colonnade, formed by tapering wood pillars set on stone bases, reinforces the feeling of being in a grand lodge.

Ceremonies may be held on the golf course fairway or tee box, each affording panoramic vistas that extend from Mt. Tamalpais and the San Rafael hills to the south, all the way north to Marin's wooded ridges and Black Point's oak woods. The golf course undulates over terrain that's an art­ful mix of sharply manicured greens and natural vegetation. Wedding parties often begin with the ceremony and/or cocktail hour on the golf course, then move on to the Ballroom for dinner.

With architecture that inspires, but never overwhelms, StoneTree Golf Club makes people feel that they're a part of a grand occasion. That sensibility, combined with beautiful views and masterful catering, makes this renowned property a prime North Bay wedding venue.
