Beautiful Venue and Amazing Staff

My husband and I were married at the Palmetto Club on 9/30/2018. After an exhausting search for venues, we found the Palmetto Club in FishHawk Ranch. What a blessing that was. The property is beautiful! From the Garden, the Patio, to the inside of the club itself, there are multitudes of picturesque areas. The special events coordinator of the Palmetto Club, Kathy Wilson, is amazing! She will do anything within her power to accommodate your visions or any last minute changes to your ceremony. The guests were raving about how beautiful the Palmetto Club is before, during, and after the wedding. We would recommend The Palmetto Club at FishHawk Ranch anyone looking to get married; the property and the staff were wonderful. Thank you Kathy and the Palmetto Club for helping to create such wonderful memories and for an amazing and beautiful wedding day.

The Palmetto Club is a gorgeous location, and the staff is fabulous! They are attentive to brides and easy to work with as a fellow vendor, which makes the bride's day that much more perfect! With both indoor and outdoor options, a modern, sleek, and yet elegant site, it manages to feel roomy and intimate at the same time, and is the perfect backdrop to your personal wedding look. We love shooting there!

Catering By Robert Catering By Robert Wedding Caterers

Lucille and her staff do a wonderful job maintaining both the facility and relationships with vendors. Our recent experience there was absolutely flawless. The room was perfectly set according to our layout and every area of the building was clean. The Palmetto Club is one of the few Tampa Bay venues that we can count on for a perfect event experience for our clients. It is also one of the loveliest off-premise catering facilities with its "country club" landscaping and swank interior. The ability for clients to bring in their own alcohol with our liquor liability insurance is also a PLUS. We highly recommend The Palmetto Club to anyone wishing to hold a first class event in a first class facility.
