The Club will also offer to purchase any wine for the host at a 10% markup of the wholesale price and charge a corkage fee of $15.00 for each 750ml bottle
opened. The host agrees to take receipt of all unopened wine.

If normally carried by the Club, beer is charged per bottle consumed. If a brand is not normally carried, the Club will purchase any brand and charge per bottle consumed and the host must take receipt of any unopened product.

Menu Planning
Accurate menu planning is essential. Your communication and cooperation during this process gives us the opportunity to meet and exceed your expectations. The enclosed menu serves as a guide when planning your event. The Club's catering manager and chef are available to assist in customizing menus to fit your needs. Menus should be finalized with the catering manager no later than two weeks prior to the event date. All reception items are based upon one hundred piece minimums. For a pre-function cocktail reception, a minimum of three Hors d' Oeuvres per person is required. For a cocktail party, a minimum of nine Hors d' Oeuvres is required. For both buffets and seated events, the Club requires your menu to cover your guaranteed number. Partial items will not be accepted (i.e., one hundred shrimp for two hundred guests).

Booking Agreement Policy
Upon completion of your final plans, you will receive an event contract, which you should review, sign, and return to the catering manager in advance of your event date. Should the Club fail to receive the signed contract, we will conclude that the contents are correct and the event contract will serve as the final agreement for your arrangements with the Club.
