Old York Road Country Club opened on June 4, 1910. In just one year, the Club had 250 members. It held an array of tournaments and events over the next few decades, but by 1962, the Club was forced to relocate onto new land. Thankfully, Old York Road Country Club was able to relocate to Bennerbrook Farm, where William and David Gordon transformed the fields into golf courses. The venue has thrived and flourished until this day.
Downtown Philadelphia is 37 minutes away from the country club. It is also 49 minutes from Evansburg State Park, 31 minutes from Valley Forge National Historical Park and 33 minutes from Ridley Creek State Park. Philadelphia International Airport is 36 minutes away.

Perfect venue with the perfect staff!
Before choosing Old York Road Country Club (OYRCC), we toured multiple venues. And kind of like shopping for a wedding dress, when you know you KNOW!
When we drove up to OYRCC, the tree lined main drive immediately grabbed our attention and we couldn’t shake it from our mind. This venue felt different from the others we had seen and felt us! With two beautiful outdoor ceremony options (one uncovered and one covered), rooms for the bride and groom to get ready on different floors, and picturesque greens and fountains on the course, plus the beautiful trees, Old York Road Country Club had all we wanted! We especially loved the large windows in their ballroom looking over the greens (TONS of natural light!), and at night the twinkling lights of their terrace were so dreamy!
Jason was very attentive to all my questions during the planning process (and believe me, I had a lot), and made for such a smooth wedding day between him, Dominic, Jill and the rest of their attentive staff! We really felt like stars of the show and also felt like family by how attentive Jason and his staff were to all of us! Our family has nothing but great things to say about all the staff and how well they treated everyone. It was such a seamless day, and the OYRCC staff are so attentive, and made sure everyone has a great time and enough food and drink! There was one point during cocktail hour where some guests weren't getting hor d'oeuvres, and Dominic and Jason made sure the servers got to all our guests so they could enjoy the delicious food. Speaking of food: the entrees were delicious, and served at the perfect temperature to shovel into our mouths haha. My husband ate his chicken marsala so quickly that I didn't even get to steal a bite!
Thank you so much for all your hard work and attention during our wedding day. It was PERFECT!

Jim was a wonderfully helpful in the planning leading up to our wedding date and Dom took great care of us on the day of. The venue was perfect for what we wanted and even the smallest details were never a problem. I would recommend Old York Road Country Club for any occasion. We loved it so much, we joined as dining members after the wedding!Sent on 05/27/2018

We're so happy we chose OYRCC for both our wedding and reception. The grounds were beautiful (even in the rain), and the food was delicious. With so many moving parts to a wedding, OYRCC helped lessen the load. They provided various resources to make our lives easier. The main resource was Jim, the General Manager. Jim was awesome to work with, very attentive and could answer all of our questions. We also used their preferred vendors (officiant, dj/photography company, bakery, florist) and happy we did!!Sent on 06/07/2017
It ended up raining on our wedding day (meaning no garden wedding), but the alternative OYRCC offered was great. We got married on the patio overlooking the golf course. The patio was covered (and on the day of, sealed in with plastic covers) and provided a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony (while keeping our guests dry). We were even able to roll up the plastic covers after the ceremony to take pictures.
We can't say enough positive things about our experience with OYRCC. We'd do it again if we could ;)
We work very closely with Old York Road Country Club and are always impressed with their attention to detail and service! They have a wonderful garden that is perfect for hosting your outdoor ceremony and the ballroom with terrace, overlooking the beautiful golf course, is wonderful for your formal sit down dinner or more relaxed buffet style meal.
Old York Road Country Club does a phenomenal job executing any type of event, including, but not limited to weddings. Their staff is top notch, fun, friendly, and very attentive to details. The food is of course delicious as well! The grounds are beautiful for an outdoor ceremony, and the ballroom is classic and elegant. They are a great company to work with, but I know first hand knowledge of how fabulous their events are because I got married there too!
