About Governors Club

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. In this event, couples can host their bridal shower or engagement party at the Governors Club. The attentive staff at this country club offer couples the following services for their occasion:

  • Bridal suite
  • Cake
  • Cleanup
  • Event planning
  • Parking

Accommodation

An on-site cottage with a wedding suite has space for 22 guests, allowing them a private and romantic getting-ready location before the day’s nerves kick in. The country club also has an on-site hotel, called the Inn at Governors Club. This lodging option makes hosting out-of-town guests simple, in addition to the proximity to the airport making travel a breeze.

    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!

    Flawless!!

    Everything was par excellence at this venue. My daughter's wedding was perfect from beginning to end thanks to the fine staff at the Governor's Club, especially Lisa Johnson who worked tirelessly to make sure everything was just as my daughter wanted it to be. I was a bit worried, as my daughter planned a rather complex multi-cultural celebration where I could imagine a number of things going wrong. I did not need to worry, as Ms. Johnson had everything coordinated perfectly and the the night went seamlessly. The venue was beautiful, the staff attentive and helpful, the food fantastic. We couldn't have asked for any more!!

    Daughter’s Wedding

    We had my daughter’s wedding at the Governors Club on April 27 and it was beautiful! We were blessed with great weather so we were able to have the ceremony on the brick patio outside and it was perfect! The reception was just as flawless. Lisa and her staff were amazing and took care of us the entire day. Lisa helped make the planning process easy. If we asked if something could be done they made it happen! I am so happy we chose to have the wedding at the Governors Club!
