Special Events Guidelines

The Board of Directors of Myers Park Country Club has established the following guidelines for private functions.

Following these guidelines will not only ensure that your private function is more enjoyable, but will make the experience of other members and their guests enjoyable as well.
  • Decorations
    • Decorations are an important factor in creating ambiance and setting just the right mood for your guests. Our Event Coordinator can make arrangements for your floral decorations, or work with a local floral designer of your choice. We ask that all decorations be confined to your specific room(s) reserved for your function. Additionally, all decorations must be limited to tabletops, or free standing displays, that do not require fixation to walls, or furniture.

      Please arrange with the Event Coordinator the delivery time for floral arrangements, decorations, props, wedding cakes, etc. No decorations in Chandeliers. The Club will gladly rent any special or extra items that your function will require and bill them to your account.
  • Menu Planning
    • Here at Myers Park Country Club we use only the highest quality ingredients to make our product from scratch in-house. From the stocks that begin as the base of our soups to the rolls and desserts, care is taken in each step to create a dining experience that will exceed expectations. 

      Our award-winning team of culinary experts thank you for choosing us to be a part of your event and we look forward to creating memories that will last far beyond. In order for our staff to effectively plan and execute your function, we will need the final menu selections and event details no later then two weeks in advance of your reserved date. Menu prices and selections are subject to change as market demands or managements deems necessary.

      Parties of twelve or more require a set menu to be selected prior to their event. Parties of twelve or less have the option to order from the formal dining room menu or select a set menu. No food or beverage may be brought into the Club with the exception of wedding cakes. The Club will provide ample food for your enjoyment throughout Cocktail Parties and Buffets; however, our Club policy prohibits taking leftover food or beverages from the premises.

      Seated menu functions requesting a choice of entrees will be limited to a choice of three or fewer entrees and a maximum of 60 guests. All parties selecting a choice of entrée will be required to provide the Club with the exact number of each choice within 72 hours of the event and provide coded place cards with distinct colors or coding at the time of the event. The Club is always happy to accommodate special dietary requests.
