With 365 sunny days a year, this Palm Desert location is truly blessed with an idyllic climate. Home to the Monterey Country Club and Golf Course, the pleasant weather will be just one of the many features that make it a fit for your wedding day.

Welcoming visitors from the entrance, with its Spanish Colonial-styling, the building’s historic architecture is at once charming and inviting. The soothing sound of water cascading down the triple-tier fountain beckons your guests to enter through the arched doorway into the cozy interior of the comfortable clubhouse. The vantage point affords incredible views of the distant Santa Rosa Mountains and nearby shimmering lake surrounded by the lush green fairways. The congenial ambiance will let you know immediately that the club is an excellent choice for hosting a truly memorable event.

With a wide range of event packages, you’ll find that we offer the elegant service, staff and beautiful surroundings of a golf course country club, with prices that are pleasantly surprising.

Wedding Ceremony and Reception Choices at Monterey Country Club

Where the desert ends and the rich green lawns begin, we offer two positions to bring the bridal couple together and each can seat up to 210 guests. Nine West and One West fairways sit beside the palm-fringed lake presenting an ideal location for an “I do” and each backdrop is beautifully balanced for photo opportunities.

Entering the plush drawing room for hors d’oeuvres one can breathe in the woodsy aroma and eye the cathedral wood-beam ceiling, candelabra–style chandelier and cut-stone fireplace. Moving through to the Main Dining room, the soft and creamy interior is blessed with the natural light spilling through its tall arched windows, offering views to the distant San Jacinto Mountains. With the adjacent Sunrise Room opened up via the double doors, the two rooms together can operate and host a gala for up to 250 guests.

On Saturday evenings, the club is strictly reserved for private functions, allowing you and your guests to fully enjoy the amenities, views and gracious service.

The courteous and professional catering and events team is available to guide you through every step of your wedding day. From determining the décor to designing your custom menu, every detail will be thoughtfully considered.

I got married here a couple weekends ago. Shelly, the director of the cc, was great. The day of the wedding she was very helpful and throughout the wedding she was on top of making sure guests were in the right place and that everything started on time. The inside of the club house is so beautiful I didn't even decorate the inside. And the food was amazing. I get told all the time by my guests that the food was amazing! There was a small problem in the very beginning months back, but Shelly made up for it.

The ceremony and venue site were amazing, as well as the quality of the food. The only thing that was lacking was the fact that at the end of the day the members of the club took priority over wedding parties. Two weeks prior to the wedding we were notified our setup time went from 5 hours to 60 minues. Also, that the venue can bump a wedding if a member of the club wants to use the space.

We should have known we were going to have problems with this venue the year prior to our wedding when every time we tried to get ahold of the food and beverage director in "charge" of our wedding, we had to basically chase him: call and email several times prior to getting a response (not the best of feelings with wedding planning). This venue is extremely unreliable and unprofessional. They rushed us out at the end of the night by throwing full plates of food away (we hired a taco guy for the end of the night and guests were not done eating), trashing everything from the tables including party favors (they didn't even give us a chance to look through them.) The worst part of it is we had so many things missing from jewelry, to a camera, to several hundreds of dollars in cash that our guests gave us as gifts at the gift table (in card and envelopes of course). When we attempted to inform them of this the food and beverage director suggested members of my bridal party were to blame as they were "in and out of the rooms". They had to be due to the fact that the bride was locked out of one of the changing rooms with all our stuff in there at the end of the night so we asked our bridal party to move our things for us. We called every time we heard something else was missing and eventually they stopped returning our calls. The best part of the wedding was the banquet captain who had to leave as her shift was over, and everything went downhill from there. I'm extremely disappointed in their professionalism. We didn't even receive an apology from them, nor did they validate our frustrations. What is most upsetting is our guests had things missing too which is an embarrassment when its your wedding. I would not do business with this vendor while they're under their current supervision (other than the banquet captain).
