Banquet Policies and Fees

It is the intention of the club management and staff to coordinate the members' requirements with the club's expertise and proven procedures to achieve the best results.  San Diego Country Club will maintain its high standards of quality food and service for all events.  The following information is provided to make planning your special function easier to assure a memorable event.

A contract is required to be signed by the party sponsor and club manager no later than two weeks prior to the event.  Without a contract, the event will not be held.

The club requires an estimate of the number of guests at the time the reservation is made.  A firm number of guests must be given to the catering office at least 48 hours prior to the time of the event.  The sponsor will pay for the guaranteed minimum or the actual number who attend, whichever is greater.  In the case when no guarantee is received by the catering office 48 hours prior to the event, the last maximum estimate given to SDCC will be used as the guarantee.  Absolutely no reduction in guaranteed attendance will be accepted less than 48 hours prior to the function.  Increases in the guarantee are accepted up to 24 hours prior to the function.

We reserve the right to assign suitable alternate space should your attendance fall substantially below the original number expected.  Conversely, if the number grows, our rooms may not be able to accommodate the increase.

Charges are standard for all members of the club.  Discounts or reduced prices are not permitted.  Club bylaws prohibit the club from subsidizing private events.  Room set-up fees will reflect the cost necessary to provide the required arrangements.

All menus in this brochure are for parties of thirty or more, unless otherwise indicated.  Due to the demand for club facilities, we cannot handle smaller parties in the banquet rooms.  However, smaller parties may be accommodated in the open dining areas.  A minimum of 100 people is required for Saturday night functions.  A minimum entree price for a dinner is $21.95.

One entree should be selected for all guests.  However we will be happy to accommodate those with special requests for dietary requirements.

At no time is it permissible to bring items of food and beverage, other than ceremonial cakes, into the club for consumption on the premises.  Except for ceremonial cakes, all food remaining at the end of the party becomes the property of the club and may not be removed from the premises.  A cutting fee of $1.00 per person will be charged for ceremonial cakes.

Prices are suject to change. Guaranteed prces will not be given more than sixty days prior to the function date.

SDCC reserve the right to inspect and control all private functions.  The host will be charged for any damages or breakage, other than normal use, caused by the host or guests.  For safety reasons, the arranging and moving of Club furniture and equipment will be accomplished only under the direction of Club personnel.

A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to hold all room reservations for banquets and receptions.  The deposit will be applied toward the payment of the bill. All anticipated charges for member sponsored and non-member parties must be paid prior to the event.

The room rental fee is $250 for the Main Dining Room and $125 for th Bay Room and Casper Room.

All Private parties are for a maximum of 5 hours.  Additional time will be charged at the rate of $250 per hour.
