Weddings & Events

Known as one of the best wedding venues in Northern California

Baywood Golf and Country Club offers a beautiful and unique setting that will leave you breathless, no matter what kind of event you are planning. Located in the heart of Humboldt County’s Redwood Forest, our forest wedding venue is immersed in the natural beauty of the countryside, but conveniently located just miles from town.

Our lovely event room (designed with elegance and versatility in mind) is set against the lush greenery of our immaculate 18-hole golf course and surrounded by exquisite redwoods and sequoias, providing a true taste of the romantic Northwest! We offer both indoor and outdoor settings to accommodate all types of events, including weddings, business functions, award banquets, fundraisers, private parties, and more.

Weddings & Receptions

Our one-of-a-kind Forest Wedding Venue is surrounded by towering trees and sprawling meadows, making it the perfect place to say “I do.” Say your vows indoors or outdoors, and celebrate your union in our skylit dining room which features exquisite wood-slatted vaulted ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling view of the woodland forest. The dining room accommodates up to 200 guests, and our clubhouse can accommodate even more. Desiring a more intimate affair? We can take care of that, too, with our cozy fireplace room centered around an impressive stacked-stone fireplace and seating for up to 40 guests. With Baywood Country Club, your forest wedding experience is customizable — we offer an elegant selection of settings, menus, décor, and services for you to choose from for your personalized wedding aesthetic.

My goal is to make your dream wedding a reality, and my team and I will work with you throughout the entire process to ensure your redwood forest wedding and reception are seamless and amazing. I would love to meet you in person and provide a personal tour of our beautiful forest wedding venue. Please call me today to set up an appointment, and congratulations on your engagement!
