Additional exceptions may be discussed prior to the event with the Director of F&B Operations or Banquet Manager. No Food or Beverage may be removed from the premises at any time from any function.
Does Pine Ridge have a dress code?
Pine Ridge has a strictly enforced Dress Code Policy, which is in effect for members and guests using the golf course. Blue Jeans and Blue Denim outfits are acceptable for any private events in the Bendelow or Ross Room.
Am I allowed to have only my ceremony at Pine Ridge?
Unfortunately we do not allow ceremonies to be held at Pine Ridge, unless we are hosting the reception.
Is there an automatic service charge added to my bill?
Any group of 8 people or over will have an automatic service charge of 16% added to the pretax total of the bill. Please keep in mind that the prices listed in this package do not include GST or PST.
Am I charged a damage deposit of any sort?
While we do not charge a damage deposit, the event Coordinator assumes all responsibility for any damage that occurs to the Clubhouse, Golf Course or any property of Pine Ridge Golf Club. Any damages that occur will be added to your bills total. In addition, Pine Ridge will not be held responsible for any damage or loss of any items left on the premises prior to, during, or following the function.
Can we use the Golf Course or Golf Carts for pictures?
Pine Ridge has a number of picture perfect spots surrounding our Clubhouse that can be used for pictures at your leisure. We ask that if you would like to use the area ‘in play’ for pictures, you and your photographer come out to the club prior to your event and pick out some spots in an effort to eliminate the traffic on the course. Please advise the Banquet Manager if you require carts to be used for pictures.
I’m not sure of what type of Bar to choose. Can you help clarify it for me?
Pine Ridge has 3 different options for running your bar. Host, Cash or Corkage. During a HOST Bar Pine Ridge provides all the Alcohol & Bartenders for your beverage service, at the end of the event all drinks consumed are charged to the event coordinator (host). No Corkage fee is charged simply the balance of the drinks consumed. With a CASH Bar guests will purchase drink tickets valid at the bar, Pine Ridge once again provides all Alcohol & Bartenders, this is at no cost to the host. In the event of a CORKAGE BAR a MLCC occasional permit is obtained by the event coordinator, all alcohol is purchased from the MLCC and delivered by the host. Pine Ridge charges a Corkage fee and Bartender fees and is responsible for the service of YOUR alcohol throughout the evening.
When do I need to provide my Guaranteed guest numbers?
We require your final guest count 7 days prior to the event. All billings shall be based on your guaranteed number or actual in attendance, whichever is higher. (Example: 100 Final count, and 93 in actual attendance. Host will be billed for 100 meals). Please note that any estimates provided guarantee the price per unit and not consumption. In the case of Bar estimates it is impossible for us to accurately estimate the amount consumed.
Are we able to make substitutions to the menu? We have guests who have allergies, are you able to accommodate them?
Pine Ridge does not serve any pre portioned, frozen, or pre made products. This allows us to make almost any changes that you wish to your dish (price permitting). Because all our dishes are made fresh in our kitchen, this also allows us to closely monitor any dietary restrictions. (Allergies, etc.)
