If you’re searching for a venue with beautiful sunsets over a golf course and the perfect combination of an indoor and outdoor wedding, The Georgia Club is the place for you! Although it is not located directly in Athens, Georgia, this country club is only about a 15 minute drive outside of Athens and towards Atlanta on Highway 316. This location gives your guests the perfect distance from traffic without creating a hassle to get to and from the restaurants, shops, and fun of Downtown Athens.

One of the most favorable aspects of Georgia Club weddings is the ease having all parts of your wedding day at one venue. First of all, you are able to have your ceremony and reception at the same place, if not a short walking distance away. The Georgia Club gives couples the option of an outdoor ceremony or an indoor ceremony. With room for up to 250 guests, the outdoor spot includes a beautiful wedding arbor that can easily be garnished with fresh flowers or vines, depending on the theme you are planning for. The spot is enclosed with hedged bushes to provide a very intimate ceremony with your close friends and family.

A short walk away from the outdoor arbor is a quaint building called Village Hall. With big white pillars out front and hardwood floors inside, this space is perfect for smaller weddings. You can have your ceremony, reception, or both here. There is even a well-kept grassy field behind the building where your guests can mingle and spread out the party.

If your guests do not fit in the adorable building of Village Hall, you can plan your reception in one of the banquet rooms in the clubhouse. Located right beside the outdoor ceremony spot, your guests simply have to leave the hedged-in space, walk up a flight of stairs, and they will be greeted by air conditioning and a lovely indoor space with lots of windows allowing natural light to shine in. Although freshly carpeted, you are able to request a dance floor to ensure your guests dance the night away. There is even a smaller grassy area in between the ceremony spot and the ballrooms that is perfect for an outdoor bar where guests can wait for the presentation of the newly wed couple.

In addition to these options, you can have both your ceremony and reception outdoors if you wish. Right behind the clubhouse and a short walk from the outdoor arbor, your reception can overlook the rolling hills of The Georgia Club’s golf course. With a small pond and a beautiful sunset at dusk, this place is picturesque, homey, and romantic. Let your guests dance under the stars and string lights while they celebrate your new marriage.

As well as a beautiful room or space for your wedding, The Georgia Club has a suite upstairs that is perfect for bridal party preparations or an overnight stay for the bride and groom. While the day of the wedding will already be hectic enough, you won’t even have to leave the building to grab some food to eat; the clubhouse restaurant and bar area is always happy to serve guests.
