Lake Forest is a great place to consider for your next social, business, educational, or other special event. Our main venues include the Yacht Club and the 19th Hole Grille. Because of the variety in our amenities, Lake Forest is extra special and we have even more options to offer or create with you. Lake Forest has a yacht club, marina, two golf courses, six tennis courts, three pools, horse stables, plus playgrounds--all in one community.
Ideas just for starters include wedding reception, birthday party, civic club luncheon, continuing education seminar, corporate workshop, bat/bar mitsvahs, Mardi Gras party, and golf tournament. Still more possibilities may include a pool party or a combination sports clinic and social at one of our golf courses or tennis courts--for adults, youth, or both.
Love birds love golf or tennis? Parties or intimate wedding ceremonies can be arranged at the Yacht Club. If the newlyweds or the 50th anniversary couple want to depart their party in a boat, our Yacht Club and Marina make that combination possible. If boating, fishing, swimming, or another passion can add fun and meaning to your event, let us know so we can create your memorable event.
Are you hot and tired? You will be next door to the pool, so you could head to the showers and the cool water. Refreshments or a full picnic could be waiting from our food and beverage. After all this, you could go home--or, if you want a bonus for the sports and socially minded, you could add another leg. This time, you and your smiling group could go to the Marina for lessons on boating and/or fishing with Harbor Master Billy Harell. Then, move next door to enjoy the Yacht Club deck air conditioning or to the deck for a final treat of snacks and refreshments. This programs bears adjusting here if an event for youth or adults, though either way Lake Forest has the variety of amenities to offer unique formats like this and the staff capable of making it interesting, fun, and memorable.
The Yacht Club has the most scenic and elegant view on the Eastern Shore capable of serving up to 225 people for a reception, 185 seated, supported by over 100 parking places in front of our doors. The floor to ceiling windows opened up to Mobile Bay provide an elegant backdrop for the event that has to be special. Our staff can add the touches to make it special for you.
The 19th Hole provides another venue for golf and other sports-related events and meetings, fund raiser tournaments, and youth sports teams who enjoy end of year parties with us as well. The Grille can hold 144 for a golf tournament and much smaller groups as well. The 19th Hole is next door to the Golf Pro Shop and provides a casual setting with food and beverage service, plus parking lot with hundreds of spaces for guests. If you want added touches considering some of your guests with special needs, we can arrange reserved parking extra close to the entrance or provide golf carts to shuttle to and from the entrance.
Full kitchens and full service bars at both locations combined with smiling, attentive staff can make your event the one they talk about for years. Many patrons like our location--that we are close to Interstate 10 and Highway 90--convenient for you and your guests.
We love to serve in caring, creative ways.
