Brief History Of Grassy Hill Country Club

Sitting right by the rolling hills of Southern Connecticut, Grassy Hill Country Club’s renowned golf course first opened in 1927. The 18-hole course comes in an expansive 6,208 yards of golf.  It has since been considered a hidden gem for golf enthusiasts which brought its owners to establish the country club for golfers and their guests to be able to fully enjoy the magnificent estate by adding premium amenities.

Noteworthy Features

The clubhouse of Grassy Hill Country Club is nestled right on top of a hill which gives it the most stunning views of the 100 acre surroundings. A pro tip we have for you is to consider having your wedding right before sunset. By then you will get to marvel at the picturesque natural landscapes with the orange and pink skies as your backdrop on one of the most important days of your life!

Accommodations for Ceremonies

Grassy Hill Country Club offers three different banquet rooms that can accommodate either intimate or larger wedding celebrations. The Sunrise Room is an indoor/outdoor space that is overlooking the courtyard and gazebo area. It’s usually where the cocktail hour is held before the reception programme. The Twilight Ballroom, on the other hand, can host up to 150 guests in a banquet style set-up. It also has a beautiful view of the golf course that you can better appreciate through its large windows. Finally, there is the Sunset and Horizon Ballrooms which are commonly combined to seat up to 200 guests. It is overlooking the new Rock Patio which adds to this space’s charm and distinct style. Both of these ballroom orientations come with a dance floor and a provision for a stage area.


If you are planning to have a reception that’s bigger than a 200-person headcount, there’s no need to worry because Grassy Hill Country Club’s ballrooms can easily be combined to accommodate up to 375 guests for a fully-serviced dinner and enough space for a dance floor.

The ceremony can be done either in the Sunrise Room or, if the weather permits, on the
beautifully manicured lawn where you can use the gazebo as the main altar.
