About the Venue
Talk about exclusive. The Ruby Hill Golf Club in Pleasanton redefines the word. Ruby Hill Golf Club is a prestigious Jack Nicholson designed course in the rolling hills of Tri-valley Wine Country. The club is part of a prestigious gated community and, just to come by and view the facility, one needs an appointment to get through the front gate.
The Italian inspired architecture seems to roll through the entire community. When you reach the top of the hill and see the grand villa waiting to greet you, a sweet smile at your discovery will pass over your face. This golf club transcends the normal idea of a cookie cutter country club wedding. As you walk into the Fireside room, take a step back and soak it in. The room is flooded with natural light from unique domed skylight that is the focal point of the room. The French doors and the collection of large picture windows that surround the soaring 40 foot ceiling all add to the beauty of the room.
The bride and groom wait at that landing at the top of the staircase, overlooking their party. As they are introduced, they descend down opposing sides of the grand Tuscan stairwell which meets at the bottom for an appropriate first dance or kiss. This grand scene is not difficult to imagine as you tour the facility. The columns, wall sconces, and attention to detail that create a warm and elegant feel in the space allow you to draw the perfect picture of your celebration. If you are looking for an incredible venue in the East Bay, you have to call and make an appointment.
