Mercer Oaks Country Club can hold up to 200 guests comfortably with a dinner buffet and 240 guests with a sit down dinner. The room is set with 60 inch round tables with a full service bar and large dance floor. Each table can fit up to ten people.
Our pricing includes your full meal which usually consists of three courses, dessert, coffee/ tea, and soft drinks. Also we provide the set up which is: your choice of linens, tables, chairs, china, glassware, and silverware. Tax and Gratuity is also included in the pricing.
Staffing really depends on how elaborate your party is. Usually we staff one server to every 25 people. Every party will have a captain which will be the leader of the party. With plated dinners we usually have extra people working the floor as floaters.
Bartenders are usually staffed by every 75-100 people. The busiest part of your event would be the cocktail hour which we would have two bartenders for 75- 100 people. Then after the hour, the second bartender would work as a server; always being available to jump behind the bar if needed to. Anything more than 120 people we would have two bartenders on for the whole night.
Unfortunately, there are no outside caterers allowed to cook here. We have our own chefs who prepare all the food for the parties here. There are situations where we will allow you to bring ethnic dishes or special foods due to allergies into the facility by signing a waiver explaining the food was not prepared by us therefore we are not held responsible. Additionally, bringing your own dishes in will not adjust the pricing.
We do have a liquor license which allows us to sell liquor on the premises. Therefore it is against the law for you to bring in your own alcohol. We offer beer and wine packages, open bar packages, and cash bar s as well. If there is a certain type of alcohol you want at your event we will try our best to get it for within our budget. If the liquor request is outside your package budget we can still purchase the liquor for you at the costs.
Majority of parties run for four hours. The room will be available to you an hour and half before the event for any set up or decorating you may have. Weddings are generally five hours. You may extend your party longer for an additional cost.
Times of events:
When you are renting the ballroom, the patio adds a nice accent to your party. Weather permitting you can have your cocktail hour outside or a portion of your event outside. There is patio furniture outside for relaxing outdoors as well. Wedding Ceremonies also take place outside on the patio.
Tastings are usually open house style after you secure the date. This means there will be a number of other brides doing their tastings as well. Which means you will have your own table of up to 6 guests, separate from other brides and their guests.
Because of the golf course we are restricted on places to take pictures. The coordinator will work with you to find perfect spots for your pictures depending on whether or not the space is occupied by golfers.
