A country club wedding exudes sophistication and refinement, often with beautiful views of green golf courses and magnificent acreage. A St. Augustine wedding captures the history and beauty of the area, often with Spanish influence and plenty of charm. The Palencia Club wedding venue is the best of both worlds! With 153 acres of stunning and protected land and a modern clubhouse designed to represent the classic St. Augustine aesthetic, it’s the perfect place for a wedding that is truly unforgettable.

About The Palencia Club Wedding Venue

600 Palencia Club Dr, St. Augustine, FL 32095

The Palencia Club is a gorgeous private club in St. Augustine that has become quite the social hub. Since opening in 2002, it has become the “place to be” for golfing, dining, and gathering. Their 18-hole championship golf course is one of the best in the area, and the 33,000-square-foot Clubhouse is home to four dining venues and beautiful event spaces. 

One of the biggest features that makes The Palencia Club unique is its dedication to protecting and preserving Florida’s environmentally sensitive Intercoastal waterway. That’s why, spread across the club’s 153 acres, you’ll find beautiful woodlands, large open spaces, and breathtaking views of marsh, wetlands, and preserves. It’s also home to a unique system of boardwalks that cover almost 10 miles, allowing members and residents to explore the beautiful ecosystems that thrive in this beautiful area. 

The Clubhouse’s beautiful Spanish-inspired architecture features details like magnificent palm trees, ivy-covered turrets and walls, and spectacular fountains. It’s an absolutely gorgeous venue, inside and out, with an aesthetic that is both modern and inspired by rich architectural history. 

You don’t have to be a member to have your wedding at The Palencia Club, but members do have special privileges when it comes to events!

Details of the Grounds

The three-story clubhouse is the perfect place to host weddings that embrace grandeur and sophistication. Just outside the clubhouse, you can say “I do” in a gorgeous outdoor setting. Whether it’s on a stretch of green lawn overlooking the nearby lake or tucked away in a stone courtyard with grand steps and meticulous landscaping, outdoor ceremonies are a wonderful draw to this venue. 

Indoors, elegant event spaces can accommodate up to 150 guests for a sit-down dinner with a dance floor. Dark wooden accents, ornate light fixtures, and windows overlooking the beautiful property all add to the cozy yet grand aesthetic of the Clubhouse. However, it still leaves plenty of opportunity for you to customize the space with your own unique vision.
