Club Del Monte a delightful wedding venue located in Monterey, California. Couples and their guests will be able to enjoy 25 acres of beautiful land that boasts oak, cypress, and pine trees.

When couples and their guests set foot on this property, they are able to immerse themselves in traditions that span back through many decades. Notable guests of the club include presidents, military personnel, and noble members of society. The staff at this hotel are dedicated to making events special and unique for all. Hugh Butler, their executive chef, carefully curates each meal to make sure that it meets even the highest standards.

I had the most beautiful wedding at NPS! The pictures speak for themselves. I found Melanie and the staff to be very professional and easy to work with. The only negative I can say is related to being on a military base. A large mobile trailer was placed on the grounds as a temporary office during renovations. This came in a few months prior to the wedding and was near and or on ceremony site. Melanie and the team worked with me to make a price adjustment on the rental of ceremony site and to find other options. This wasn't something Melanie could help and did her best to make right. If it weren't for this hiccup it would have been a perfect venue. If given the choice I would absolutely have the wedding there again!Sent on 07/18/2011

We love military weddings and know this local very well. To our troops, we salute you.
We absolutely LOVE doing events at Club Del Monte at the Naval Postgraduate School. There is no finer ballroom on the peninsula with so much history and I just love sharing the history of the venue whenever introducing my couples to the site. Melanie and the rest of the staff at NPS are an absolute pleasure to work with and really understand the TEAM concept of creating an dream event for civilians and dignitaries alike. The food is beyond what most would expect from a military installment with Cordon Bleu trained Chef Hugh Butler at the helm. Overall, one of out favorite places to be on a Saturday night!
