Nestled in a tranquil setting of lakes and forests, The Golf Club at North Hampton is much more than the best Arnold Palmer golf course in the state of Florida; it’s also the perfect place to celebrate a wedding. The naturally beautiful setting eases the worries of the moment, allowing bride, groom, family, and friends to relax and enjoy a very special day.
“Here at North Hampton, we like to think there aren’t just one or two things that stand out about our approach to your wedding,” says Heather Veraldi, the Golf Club’s Banquet and Wedding Coordinator. “We feel that brides here get a full complement of reassuring differentials that help us guarantee your special day is memorable for all the right reasons.” The Golf Club’s clubhouse, the hub of all North Hampton activities, is beautifully decorated to create a lasting impression, and the picturesque views of the golf course are unforgettable. “Our banquet room has charm and character that can only be described as matchless for this area,” says Heather.
Located only 25 minutes from Jacksonville and just 15 minutes from Jacksonville International Airport, the Golf Club is convenient for out-of-town guests and close to a wide variety of hotels, condos, and charming bed-and-breakfast inns. For locals and visitors alike, The Golf Club at North Hampton offers destination wedding packages that include custom amenities at affordable prices. “Our packages make planning and budgeting a breeze, and they can easily be custom tailored to deliver your dream wedding!” says Heather.
Guests are welcome to utilize every part of The Golf Club, from its outdoor lawn to its banquet rooms and patio, which provide space for dining, dancing, and mingling for intimate weddings of less than 100 to large celebrations of up to 300 guests. The Club’s CIA-trained chef Bill Veraldi, Heather’s husband, offers exciting and creative custom menus from carving and food stations for a casual buffet to lavish sit-down dinners, along with custom cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres.
Chef Bill prides himself on delivering the best of the basics first, and kicking it up several notches from there. “It’s like building a house,” says Chef Bill. “Each element of a meal has to be built from the ground up with the best building blocks available. I can create anything from hamburgers and hot dogs to Chateaubriand.”
Owner Scott Schneider says The Golf Club at North Hampton offers a casual environment while striving to deliver 5-star service. He’s particularly proud of his food and beverage staff. “No one in the area can compete with the high-quality food that comes out of our kitchen, and as a bonus, our pricing is much easier to swallow,” says Schneider. If couples are looking for a relaxed location, personal attention from start to finish, great price options, and amazing cuisine, The Golf Club of North Hampton is the best wedding venue in the region, he concludes.
“We’ve gotten a lot of brides down the aisle, all of them radiant and happy with our wedding staff bringing over a quarter-century of wedding experience to bear. You can relax here and actually enjoy your first day as husband and wife,” says Heather. “While you enjoy yourselves, our staff will be hard at work for you and your guests. Our friendly and gracious banquet team keeps track of all the details and shares in the excitement of your big day.”
