About Greate Bay Country Club

The Greate Bay Country Club is a beachfront country club for couples’ weddings in the Southern New Jersey area. Couples can dip their toes in the sand and surf for a ceremony nearby or have an on-location ceremony in the garden gazebo. The country club and adjacent Ocean City Yacht Club both offer serene indoor event halls. Couples will find this venue just 10 minutes from Ocean City, New Jersey, across the Great Egg Harbor Bay.

Facilities and Capacity

A total of 275 guests can attend a couple’s wedding at the Greate Bay Country Club or nearby Ocean City Yacht Club. The country club features an 18-hole golf course, offer plenty of gardenscapes for couples’ ceremonies. The most popular location to wed is beneath the white gazebo surrounded by the swaying fronds of willow trees. A paved aisle, beginning at a white wedding arch, leads couples to this pavilion and the rest of their lives. Couples can also opt to wed nearby on the beach with their toes in the sand and the waves crashing in the distance. For couples torn between the two, the decision can be made easier with the knowledge that photographs can be taken in both locations. Sweeping greenery and salty air make the perfect relaxed coastal wedding. A ballroom in the Greate Bay Country Club features a combination of two rooms, the Greate Room and connecting Bay Room. The Ocean City Yacht Club features the same space with more nautical decor and a closer proximity to the water.

    Perfect day, overall amazing experience.

    Had our wedding on 10/13/18 and hands down the best day of our lives. Beautiful venue, lots of indoor/outdoors space, and best of all, responsive staff (we didn't even need to hire a wedding planner!) answered all our calls, emails within 24 hours. This was very important as we were mostly planning this wedding remotely, living about 3-4 hours away from the venue. This place has one of the most competitive all-inclusive packages we have seen in terms of ceremony, decorations, cake, premium open bar, tons of included appetizers during cocktail hour plus we received special discounts for booking late on a date that happened to be open! All of this inclusive without sacrificing quality. We were even able to throw in a custom made ice sculpture for a very reasonable price, which they lighted beautifully during our cocktail hour. Also their recommended DJ was phenomenal and the venue was also very accommodating to our 2 videographers and 2 photographers who all arrived a little early to take some first look photos. Can't wait to post pics, it was truly a beautiful day.

    “Greate” Experience

    My wedding was on October 6th 2018, and can I say that Greate Bay was awesome. Everyone raved about the venu and how great the food was as well as how everything turned out. Sharon helped me so much especially since I was planning this wedding from out of town. She was easy to reach and always answered every question. Their staff their is amazing I was waited on hand and foot but the waiting staff I always had what I wanted and never had an empty drink. The place is beautiful and using the bridal suite and locker rooms made getting ready so much easier. My ceremony was even held on the beach and they did everything to make sure it turned out exactly how I evvisioned it. Overall, I would recommend greate bay to anyone who is planning on getting married!

  • With This Kiss I Thee Wed
    With This Kiss I Thee Wed Wedding Officiants

    I have been officiating weddings either at Greate Bay's country club location or at their beach locations in Ocean City for the past five years. Their facility is beautiful and the wedding pavilion on their property is so pretty with a pond and rolling hills that I often wonder why couples ever opt for a beach wedding! On the occasions where couples had planned to marry by the outdoor gazebo and bad weather made it impossible, the staff set up a beautiful indoor wedding setting for the couples without skipping a beat. In fact, Greate Bay has one of the prettiest indoor wedding rooms of most of the wedding venues in this area. Whenever I've married couples on the beach which Greate Bay set up, they are always on site before I show up, and I show up an hour before the wedding start time. By the time I show up the location is already nearly done being decorated and with chairs already in place. And they always pick the best OC beach locations. They've got their acts together and they have always been very pleasant and cooperative to work with. I am always very happy when requested by a couple to marry them at Greate Bay.
