The Governors Club is a country club with a ballroom for couples’ weddings in the greater Raleigh, North Carolina area. This classic venue features gorgeous outdoor spaces including emerald greens and a sparkling lake, as well as timeless indoor locations for a couple’s wedding. Couples can find this venue in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, approximately 26 minutes from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity

With a maximum capacity of 300, couples can fill this ballroom with their friends and family for the wedding, or choose to host a more private affair. Couples can marry on a patio space framed by tall trees in the background. Further still, the green grasses of the golf course roll into the distance, where they meet an imposing tree line before the bright blue sky. Ceremonies can also be held directly on the lawn at this course, for couples who want the Earth under their feet for the beginning of their lives together. The property has many bountiful locations for wedding portraits, including on a flat wooden bridge that stretches across the middle of an expansive pond, on a small knoll that meets the water below by way of a stone wall, or among the country club’s weeping willow trees. Inside, couples can use the clubhouse for their reception, complete with a grand staircase and bright elegant ballroom.

Services Offered

The venue welcomes couples for a reception and ceremony, but also invites couples to the lush property if they have a location selected for their wedding day.

    The Best Venue

    The Governors Club (GC) deserves more than 5 stars in every category. After shopping for a venue, we fell in love with the GC from the moment we visited. We worked with Lisa, Felicia and Josh and can not say enough wonderful things about working with the GC and the entire staff. They are professional, caring, flexible and made our wedding so perfect in so many ways. The pictures turned out amazing. Our guests said the food was the best they have ever had at any wedding! Chef Ben rocked the food!! If your date is available at the GC, stop looking and book it! You will be happy you did!

    Best Wedding Venue Ever!

    I worked with Lisa Johnson for my wedding on 9/28/19 and it was the best experience I could have had. Lisa was the most helpful coordinator; she went out of her way to make our day the best it could possibly be from helping with flowers, to creating a special menu with the chef, and always being available for a question. The venue itself is stunning and the food is absolutely amazing, but being able to work with such an attentive, professional, and positive staff made our experience all the more exceptional. I recommend that everyone in the Triangle get married at Governor's Club!
