    Beautiful event!

    Our daughter’s wedding was held at Ocean City Yacht Club which is managed by Greate Bay Country Club. We had an exceptional experience and the entire staff worked very hard to incorporate all of our requests. Sharon, the Catering Director was very responsive to all of our emails and calls as we were planning this wedding from San Diego. The cocktail hour in the tent was lovely with views of the bay and the appetizers were varied and tasty. We enjoyed a wonderful tasting prior to the wedding so that we could select our menu choices and the food was excellent as well as the service. It was a perfect day in every way!

    Book with GBCC at Ocean City Yacht Club!

    Sharon, Tammy and the entire Greate Bay Country Club staff gave us the wedding of our dreams! From the day of booking the Ocean City Yacht Club to the day of the wedding, Sharon made everything run smoothly and ensured no detail was overlooked! We planned the wedding from Virginia, and Sharon was prompt in responding to all emails and questions. The wedding day was flawless - the entire venue was set up beautifully, the staff were so kind and attentive to our guests, and all of our attendees continue to mention how exquisite the food was! The location is great, but the staff truly made the wedding exceptional! Sharon and Tammy stayed during the wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly - both came up to my husband and I several times throughout the night to ensure the event was meeting our expectations (food, drinks, etc.). While we were talking to guests, they brought us our drinks so we did not have to wait at the bar! I highly recommend you booking Ocean City Yacht Club for your wedding - we will certainly have to book again in the next few decades for our wedding vowel renewal! Thank you again to Sharon, Tammy and the entire Greate Bay staff for exceeding our expectations for our wedding day!

  • 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.
