Sonoma County Wedding Venue

Beautiful Sonoma County Wedding Venue

Located in the heart of the Wine Country, the Oakmont Golf Club is just one hour north of San Francisco and 10 minutes from downtown Santa Rosa. Nestled under weeping willows and majestic oaks, it offers panoramic views of the Mayacama Mountains and the entire Sonoma Valley. Host your wedding here, and you’ll appreciate not just the lovely setting but the event spaces and affordable cuisine as well.

The outdoor ceremony site takes advantage of the beautiful scenery—you exchange vows next to a tree-and-grass-fringed pond about 250 yards from the clubhouse. Guests are seated under shade trees facing the pond and waterfall, which serve as a marvelous backdrop during the ceremony. A storybook bridge beneath a canopy of tall willows spans the pond and makes a charming photo op.

Then it’s just a short walk back to the clubhouse for the rest of the celebration. Cocktails are served on the expansive terrace overlooking the 18th green. While guests are toasting the newlyweds, they also get to enjoy the gorgeous landscape: the golf course’s groves of mature firs, sycamores, maples and redwoods, with Hood Mountain and the Mayacamas in the distance. In the evening, family and friends can gather around wine-barrel fire pits beneath strings of festive bistro lights.

When it’s time for the reception, three sets of double doors open into the spacious ballroom, which can be divided into smaller sections if desired. During the day, natural light flows in thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that frame vistas of Oakmont’s award-winning golf course and the surrounding mountains. The club’s impressive bar, which is right down the hallway from the ballroom, also rewards with huge picture windows that look out onto the fairways and peaks.

Their all-inclusive wedding packages offer a wide range of options that cover all the essentials—plus a menu tasting, complimentary round of golf for two, and a day-of coordinator to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Oakmont is easy to get to, easy on the eyes, and easy on the budget. All these assets have made it a local favorite, and it’s certain to be a favorite with you, too.
