About Talega Golf Club

Talega Golf Club is a wedding venue located in San Clemente, California. Situated amidst the scenic San Clemente hills, this traditional club fuses rustic charm with timeless sophistication. The clubhouse is designed in a Spanish colonial style, with a rust-red roof and cream white walls. The main building is surrounded by tranquil woodlands, palm trees, and golf greens, all of which are framed by the sun-drenched Californian blue sky.

Facilities and Capacity

Talega Golf Club can cater to weddings for up to 200 guests. Before the big day, couples may wish to celebrate their engagement party, wedding shower, or rehearsal dinner at this location. Ceremonies are held in the picturesque courtyard overlooking the manicured landscape and sweeping views of the course and the area's riparian terrain. Couples can host their reception outdoors in the Courtyard, which is ideal for 170 loved ones. Indoor receptions are held in The Signature Room, a classic ballroom that fuses rustic elegance and refinement. Authentic chandeliers and expansive windows help create a romantic and atmospheric backdrop for special occasions. This traditional space overlooks the terrace and gardens, and offers serene views of the fairways and golf greens. Complimentary WiFi and parking are available at this venue, and the golf club and grounds are wheelchair accessible.

    Flexible, Fantastic & Fortunate

    My (now) husband and I chose this venue primarily because of the level of flexibility and transparency in knowing how much the estimated cost would be for our group, along with the fact that we were not tied to an F&B minimum or expected head count. On top of that, the venue had complimentary décor that we could use, and I made decisions on additional décor that complemented the venue’s décor to save on overall cost. AND on top of that, working with Michael was phenomenal. Not only does he have an amazing and energetic personality, he’s personable, adaptable, and flexible to work with from pre-planning to ‘day of’ logistics. We also hired him as the on-site coordinator to help set up our décor as well as supporting us throughout our wedding day. Because we had one photographer on site, he also assisted the photographer to capture some tunnel location photos, as well. He really went the extra mile time and time again. When we were preparing for postponement since our first date was supposed to be May 2, 2020, he was very communicative about our options and allowed for us to move our date to September 19, 2020, without penalty. Even though our wedding was all outdoors, the weather was simply perfect and the lighting in the evening was the best we could ever hope for. We were so fortunate that we could still have our wedding in 2020 and were grateful to have an intimate and special experience. And don’t forget the food! It was sensational, and our guests absolutely loved the surf and turf entrees.

    Book Now! Best Venue with Best Staff!!

    Where to start, Talega made all my wedding dreams come true! The property is gorgeous but it would be nothing without Michael and his staff!! He was an absolute gem all throughout wedding planning, a postponed covid wedding, a replanned wedding and the wedding day!!! We booked this venue a year out from our wedding, its a popular spot don't wait, and are so glad we did. We scheduled multiple meetings with Michael to go over ceremony and reception specifics and he was never bothered. He kept everything so organized and on schedule and had a plan for everything. Michael and his entire staff were nothing short of amazing, the drinks and the food, wow everyone was so impressed!! We ended up having to have everything outside due to covid and had to change so many plans but Michael was on it every step of the way. If you book here you are sure to be in great hands! I may be bias but outside turned out better than I could have ever imagained!! Every detail was beautiful, Michael let us borrow signage, table decorations, etc and it all came together better than I could have ever imagained it. Thank you Michael, Tommy and Staff for everything, you all went above and beyond and made our day absolutely perfect!! Would recommend Talaga to any bride because it is truly that special!
