We'd love it if you would mention that you found Palos Verdes Golf Club on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
With its commanding ocean, city and mountain views, this location is a stunner. The rural surroundings also add a peaceful quality to the setting: picturesque stables nearby, horses walking down the street, and woods everywhere you look. Although the rambling Mediterranean Revival-style clubhouse has recently undergone an $11 million renovation, all of its rustic touches—wrought-iron gates and chandeliers, wood-beamed ceilings, and distressed furniture—have been preserved. The result? Palos Verdes Golf Club is more fabulous than ever for hosting an ultra-glam event.
When the club opened in 1924 it was an instant success, immediately attracting film stars and celebrities to the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula. Today, the venue specializes in weddings and other celebrations, offering a grand collection of handsomely appointed indoor and outdoor spaces for large or small extravaganzas.
The brilliant blue Southern California sky, the Spanish tile roof, the stately palms, and the bougainvillea-draped hillside will make you feel as if you have just stepped into a painting. Here, you’re front and center for the best vista ever: breathtaking views of the Queen’s Necklace—the sparkling curve of coastline between Rancho Palos Verdes and Malibu, visible from the event spaces as well as the outside areas. Have your ceremony against that backdrop in the broad Wedding Garden, followed by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the clubhouse’s spacious Patio Terrace—your photographer’s camera will definitely be clicking.
For an indoor variation on the picture-perfect theme, let guests head into the Lunada Bay Room. Elegantly furnished and large enough for banquet tables, food stations, a quartet, or strolling performers—there’s even a grand piano—it looks out onto the Wedding Garden and can also serve as the Palos Verdes Ballroom foyer for larger celebrations. The adjacent Palos Verdes Ballroom, with its high open-beam ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and spectacular Veranda Terrace, affords more ocean and golf course panoramas as well as plenty of room for dining and whirling around the dance floor.
That’s not all. For more intimate occasions like rehearsal dinners, the Monte Malaga Room, where unobstructed views, terrace access, mood lighting and great audio are de rigueur, is an excellent choice. And if you combine it with the adjacent Malaga Cove Dining Room, you nearly double its size. With a property of this magnitude there are additional areas that can be used alone or in combination, not to mention special spots like the Altamira Tower—a bride’s retreat with an adorable Juliet balcony. The club’s on-site specialists will be delighted to walk you through the many possibilities.
Naturally, Palos Verdes Golf Club also delivers flawless service and superb cuisine. Their talented chef—a member of the internationally renowned Confrerie de la Chaine des Rotisseurs—has prepared pages and pages of mouthwatering menu options. After decades of catering to high expectations, the event experts here know how to throw a phenomenal party—plus they love weddings and it shows. You and your guests will undoubtedly rave, like so many who have come before you, about your wonderful experience at this dazzling country club.
