About River Forest Country Club

River Forest Country Club offers a classic golf club setting for couples to celebrate in Elmhurst, Illinois. The club, established in 1926, dedicates itself to offering a high level of customer service, whether to its members or couples looking to host a special event. Their event spaces span both indoor and outdoor areas, allowing couples to plan small, intimate gatherings, or larger, more elegant events. The pristine, manicured courses, landscaped grounds, and other quaint features provide beautiful scenery for any occasion.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples may book the venue spaces for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and elopements, as well as bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehersal dinners. The Grand Ballroom and Great Hall are newly renovated spaces capable of seating up to 320 people for a reception or 400 for a stand up or food stationed reception. If needed, the large space can be divided into two rooms, featuring their own personal decor. Connected to the Grand Ballroom is the Upper Terrace, a covered space that is a favored cocktail reception area for guests. The formal dining room and lounge can be used for smaller gatherings, and offers cozy seating areas and a fireplace along with views of the club’s scenery. If more room is needed, the Card Room connects to the formal dining room with two walls of windows and seating for 20. Wedding parties may use the bridal room, complete with private restroom, prior to the wedding, or as an in-between relaxing area before the reception. The club provides valet, shuttle service, parking, and wheelchair access for guests.

Services Offered

The all-inclusive packages offered at River Forest Country Club stand to provide couples with everything needed for their special day, and the facility is covered by liability insurance for such events. Couples are also permitted to bring in their own outside vendors, although the club offers its own exquisite dining options.

    We were extremely pleased & received many compliments about our wedding at River Forest Country Club. We started with passed appetizers and drinks on the upstairs balcony overlooking the beautiful golf course. The dinner was unbelievably good, as the chef is truly one of the best in this area! The amenities are exceptional, since the ballroom & bathrooms have all been renovated and are top of the line. The service is great too, from the bartenders to wait staff. Overall, the wedding flowed very well and was beyond our expectations!
