I attended a wedding rehearsal dinner at Brunswick Country Club. The dinner was held on a Friday night and it appeared the entire club shut down for our private party. The clubhouse opened in 2009, so it's relatively new. The clubhouse has a modern yet traditional design. Modest, elegant, and spacious.
We spent our time at the bar and grill and in the main dining room. Both rooms had expansive views of the golf course. From the holes I saw, the golf course looked very flat with not too many trees. The course was originally designed by Donald Ross. Love Golf Design (Davis Love III's company) restored it in 2007.
The bar was small and had a large flatscreen TV playing Golf Channel. The dining room and lobby were large and open. Several staff were on hand to handle our group. I'm bad at estimating numbers of people, but I'd venture to guess we had about 40-50 people at the dinner.
Dinner was preceded by light hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. Hors d'oeuvres included various deep-fried seafood concoctions involving shrimp and crab. This was fitting since we were at the Golden Isles of Georgia (barrier islands). The dining room tables were covered in white tablecloth and had a sea island theme with fishing nets and seashells.
The dinner consisted of both a seated portion and a buffet portion. During the seated portion, we were served dinner rolls, soup (corn bisque with shrimp), and salad. The self-serve buffet portion contained a Southern smorgasbord of goodies: fried chicken, turkey, collard greens, fried okra, mac and cheese, etc. I loved the regional selection. My personal favorite touch was the bottles of Texas Pete Pepper Sauce next to the collard greens. I love this sauce and it makes most Southern green veggies instantly better with its whole green Tabasco peppers and vinegar.
Dessert included peach cobbler and vanilla ice cream.
Overall, Brunswick Country Club provided fantastic food and service and a classy ambiance. A great time was had by all.
I have had lunch here numerous times after a round of golf and everything is all very good. Great soups and sandwiches. Als the burger and fries are excellent.
