About

Guests 60 to 190

Tired of the same old venue options? Are you looking for a new experience for your friends and family? UMCC is the perfect blend of alternative and new, with the classic look and feel of a traditional wedding venue. Our gorgeous property is meticulously maintained and will enchant from the moment you pull through our gates. The club and clubhouse are conveniently located just off of the Parkway and Rt. 3 Eastbound. The greens of our exclusive golf course are the perfect backdrop for outdoor photos and views from your wedding festivities. All clubhouse rooms have windows which allow for natural sunlight and views out to the golf course. Beauty may be found inside and out!

The club has recently completed a beautiful timber structure along the rear of our ballroom with exposed beams and high vaulted ceilings. The materials used include a douglas fir which was hand-selected from a mill in Vermont to give this new space a timeless yet historic feel. The covered space is ideal for outdoor cocktail receptions, moderately sized dinner receptions, and wedding ceremonies (when the weather does not permit the lawn!). You will be surprised and delighted by the ambiance that this one-of-a-kind structure has to offer.

We also have a beautiful plush green lawn adjacent to our clubhouse which is designed for outdoor ceremonies. This same space can also be the site for a tented wedding if preferred. Access to the clubhouse and restrooms is convenient, and the views overlook our 3 golf courses. Couples are taken out onto the course (weather permitting) in golf carts for photos as well. The notion that you have to be at least an hour outside of NYC in order to find great outdoor space - is wrong! We are right here in your backyard.

There are many more reasons why UMCC may just be what you have been searching for! If you wish to schedule a tour and find out, please do not hesitate to contact the property's Catering Director, Trevor Desiato, today!

    Best Wedding Ever

    We held our daughter’s wedding here last weekend and everything was wonderful. Everyone said that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to. The venue was beautiful inside and out, and the food and service were both excellent.
    As you can imagine, planning a wedding during the pandemic was a challenge. Throughout the entire process, Trevor, the event coordinator, was extremely helpful and supportive.
    I can’t say enough good things about the whole experience.

    Perfect Day!

    When I first walked into Upper Montclair Country Club, I was fresh off canceling 2 other weddings because of the pandemic. My now husband and I were disappointed and saddened that the day we were planning had crumbled. All the disappointment went away when we saw UMCC. This beautiful, versatile venue, and its kind staff, gave us so much hope and optimism for what our covid wedding could be. Trevor helped us through many different iterations, indoor/outdoor, cocktail hour/appetizers at tables, tent/no tent, etc. When we were finally married, we were so blessed. We were married 10 days after the mask mandate had been lifted, and 90% of our guests had been vaccinated. Upper Montclair Country Club went right to work giving us the best wedding possible.
    The food: Phenomenal. It was so good, some of our guests went back for dinner the following weekend. I do not think a single other bride can say that about her venue. Phenomenal.
    The staff: Wonderful. Kind, helpful, hard at work constantly. We mostly worked with Trevor, who was always professional and always quick to respond to any question or concern. Wonderful.
    The venue: Unlike any other. This venue was so diverse. They have a beautiful lawn, covered patio, ballroom lined with French doors, cozy lounge area… so versatile to fit the many different iterations of our guest list and covid requirements.
    Thank you so much, Upper Montclair Country Club! You gave us a new dream day to look forward to, and it was perfect!

    We loved every single thing about the Upper Montclair Country Club and are SO thrilled with the way our wedding turned out! Leah, the catering assistant, did an outstanding job making sure every detail of our wedding day was perfect and Trevor, the catering director, was absolutely wonderful to work with leading up to the big day. I wish we could get married again just to have another excuse to have an event there!
