The Vineyards Country Club offers breathtaking settings for memorable celebrations
Reminiscing about her recent wedding reception at Vineyards Country Club, newlywed Kate TerHarr called it a truly wonderful and beautiful experience. “The Vineyards is a beautiful venue, the food was amazing and the whole team was amazing,” she said. “We always get rave reviews from our guests about the venue, the food, and the staff.”
“I was happy to just enjoy the experience, because the whole team at Vineyards made sure everything went smoothly,” said TerHarr. “I would recommend Vineyards Country Club to any honeymooners or anyone looking for a venue for a special event.”
Unlike many planned communities in Southwest Florida, membership is not required to host a private event at Vineyards Country Club. The general public can book the community’s indoor and outdoor spaces for various events through the Vineyards Activities Desk.
“Our world-class team is happy to help bring your vision to life,” said Julie Inman, Director of Operations. “From social events to corporate and association events and more, we have a variety of unique and flexible spaces to turn your special day into an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind event.”
Vineyards Country Club offers a spacious and elegant atmosphere for events designed to create lasting memories with loved ones, friends and guests. Highlighted by a warm, classic entry experience with rich mahogany and transitional coastal architectural flair, the clubhouse provides the perfect setting for a full range of social events such as weddings and vow renewals; bridal showers; anniversaries and birthday parties; meetings and celebrations of life; bar/bat mitzvah; quinceañeras; awards galas; corporate events such as meetings and training sessions; as well as fundraising events, golf tournaments and more.
“This venue is absolutely stunning,” said Merline Jaques, who recently chose Vineyards Country Club as her wedding site. “As soon as we walked through the front door, my husband immediately said, ‘This is our place’.”
Inside, the community’s newly renovated 70,000 square foot clubhouse includes the spacious Fairmont and Oakmont Ballrooms for gatherings of up to 300 people. The Heritage, Sterling and Cypress banquet rooms are ideal for hosting networking events, meetings, private dinners and small gatherings. These modular rooms can be connected to increase guest accommodation, or they can remain separate to allow for smaller, more intimate settings. Plus, Vineyards is one of the only clubs in Naples to offer spacious, comfortable suites for the bride and groom with plenty of hair and makeup counters, lounges to relax in, and more.
“We fell in love with everything from the chandeliers to the high ceilings to the gorgeous bathrooms,” said Marissa Secades, who also celebrated her wedding at Vineyards. “There was very little extra decor that we had to add as the place is beautiful on its own.”
The club lobby bar provides an inviting and comfortable space that can easily serve guests and attendees. Its elegant rooms extend outside onto a covered veranda with picturesque views of the Vineyards’ two renowned golf courses. The Porte Cochere offers an incredibly scenic and unforgettable photography location. The rear clubhouse terraces, redesigned to include a large fire pit and seating area adjacent to the dining areas, are an extension of the indoor/outdoor gathering areas and are perfect for celebrating and socializing while enjoying the panoramic views.
“Since we got married during the rainy season, we loved having the option of having an indoor/outdoor cocktail area with a built-in bar and guest areas,” Secades said. “Our guests have had so many compliments for the venue and the staff. Everyone had a wonderful time. We definitely recommend Vineyards to a friend or family.”
The community’s carefully designed 300-acre grounds are highlighted by natural subtropical landscaping and lush gardens, providing the perfect backdrop for memorable photography. Native, drought-tolerant, low-maintenance plants of varying colors and textures are set among mature palm and oak trees throughout the community, creating a bright, multi-colored backdrop for dazzling wedding photographs.
“We are regularly amazed by the incredible indoor and outdoor wedding and event photography taken at community events,” Inman said. “Just when we think we’ve seen the best there is, a photographer will capture even more stunning images incorporating Vineyards’ multiple backgrounds and eye-catching views.”
Vineyard’s Country Club’s professional staff and experienced catering team consistently deliver extraordinary quality, unparalleled service, sophisticated style and exceptional cuisine, tailoring each individual event to ensure it is seamless and unforgettable.
“Planning a wedding can be stressful, but the Vineyards Country Club team made it so much easier with their guidance, responsiveness and can-do attitude,” said TerHarr.
“The Vineyards team went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect,” agreed Jacques. “They were easy to work with, easy to contact and quick to respond. I cannot express how grateful and thankful we are for their help on our special day.
