Firethorne Country Club is a wedding ceremony and reception venue located in Waxhaw, North Carolina. This stone-constructed clubhouse provides a dignified and sophisticated backdrop for any couple’s big day combined with the welcoming worth of a ski lodge-style resort. The venue is situated on a championship golf course for elegant fairway views.
Facilities and Capacity
Firethorne Country Club, located on an impressive 18-hole championship golf course, provides an outdoor ceremony site that affords views of manicured hedges and green trees. A small stage is available for couples to say their vows beneath an impressive arch and wood beams.
Indoor receptions can take place in a spacious ballroom that is full of expansive windows, which afford an abundance of natural light and arresting views. An outdoor covered patio is also available for celebrations such as a high-class cocktail hour. More intimate receptions and rehearsal dinners can be held in the Killarney Room, which likewise affords impressive views. The St. Andrews Room is another event space that offers a combination of high-class style and ski lodge coziness.
The interior of the clubhouse itself is largely natural wood, lending it a rustic sensibility that does not compensate for chic sophistication. Couples will find a variety of excellent photo opportunities, including natural rock structures, reflective ponds, and several copses.
Firethorne Country Club’s amenities include the Firethorne Grille, which provides fine dining and an excellent site for small gatherings and celebrations. Private get-ready rooms, including a luxury suite, are available for pre-ceremony preparations.
Firethorne Country Club hosts rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremonies, receptions, and more. Couples can work with a private event director for wedding planning assistance, vendor referrals, and day-of coordination services.
An all-inclusive wedding package at this venue includes tables, chairs, linens, barware, flatware, and glassware. Full catering and bar services are also available, including house beers, wines, liquors, and specialty libations. Other more general services include:

So many great things
There are so many great things to say about this venue, including the staff, the food, and the ease of everything!! To start, the venue is gorgeous inside and out and the layout was perfect for us!! We loved how our guests could enjoy dinner and dancing in one area, bar and photo booth in another, and also be able to enjoy the beautiful evening on the balcony. Next, the staff is amazing! Pam is beyond awesome and we were so lucky to have her working with us. To be honest we had little to no idea what we were doing and she set us at ease and formulated the entire timeline which we were grateful for! On the day of we got to sit back and enjoy our day, Pam and the staff did everything. A big thank you for their quick action regarding the ceremony space which was a tad squishy from all the rain we’ve had. We didn’t even have to mention it and Pam had already ordered turf to put down to make our guests more comfortable and to make it so my dress would stay clean. We were blown away by this! We’re laid back so we would of made it work but she went above and beyond! The other members of the staff were also fantastic! Everyone was so nice and helpful and our guests loved the friendly bartenders! We can’t reiterate enough how much we appreciated everyone! Finally, the food!! Everyone is still talking about the prime rib and the appetizers! A lot of bridal blogs and such mention that the bride and groom typically don’t get to eat much of their food, but not here!! Thanks to the staff we ate a ton and had a wonderful dinner together as newlyweds!Sent on 05/01/2019
Overall this place is awesome, Pam is amazing, and my husband says he wants to “do it all over again because it was so much fun” which basically tells you all you need :).

Firethorne Country Club was an absolutely awesome venue for my daughter's wedding. The exterior is beautiful! The patio, St. Andrew's room, and dance floor allow great flow for a reception. Pam, the event coordinator, was very professional and responsive. And the food was excellent! Many of our guests reported what a great time they had at the reception.Sent on 06/03/2019

We had our wedding at Firethorne this May and it was great! The entire event ran smoothly and all of the staff were very attentive and professional. Pam, who coordinates the weddings, was amazing thru the entire process. She was always prompt to answer emails and my many many questions the month leading up to the wedding. She also eliminated my need to hire a day of coordinator because she runs the event the day of. You get a lot of value for your money at this venue and we have gotten many many compliments on the food. The venue is also beautiful so you do not need to spend a lot on decor, etc. Would highly recommend adding Firethorne to your possible venue list.Sent on 06/04/2018
