A COUNTRY CLUB IN NEWBURGH, NY

About Us

The Powelton Club, one of the oldest golf and tennis clubs in America, is located in the heart of the Hudson Valley in historic Newburgh, New York, about 50 miles north of New York City. The 100-acre, private country club, established in 1882, is situated on the Hudson River's western shore where it offers a great view toward the Hudson Highlands. The Powelton Club hosts wedding celebrations, specializing in weddings that include the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Couples are welcome to have their ceremony on the well-manicured lawn, exchanging vows in front of a flower-adorned twig arbor and then join their guests on the pool deck to enjoy cocktails.

The Dining Room, with neutral-colored carpets and walls that easily fit any wedding theme, has a movable wooden dance floor. The fireplace area includes living room furniture designed to make guests feel at home. Guests can also relax around the bar and gaze out the windows to view the golf course and pool deck. A player piano is available for a song dedication or cocktail hour music. Couples complete the elegant, homey look with one of a variety of complimentary floor-length linens and cloth napkins as well as table centerpieces and decorations supplied by an outside vendor.

What You Should Know

The Powelton Club caters one event at a time and therefore, guarantees that a couple's wedding will be the only one on the property on their chosen day. The club's culinary team graduated from the Culinary Institute of America. Couples work with the executive chef to customize diverse wedding menu options, which include butler and station hors d’oeuvres to fit the couple's style.

Chosen menu items are then created from fresh and local ingredients. The Powelton Club offers everything from traditional plated dinners to cocktail receptions. A traditional wedding cake is included, however, a Viennese table, chocolate fountain or ice cream sundae bar can be added.

Couples are welcome to take wedding photos anywhere around the golf course, tennis courts, balcony, pool deck and surrounding picturesque landscapes that include fountains and lush greenery. A different backdrop is created with the change of seasons.

I can't say enough about The Powelton Club and 5 stars certainly are not enough! We had our wedding on July 29th, 2017 after a horror fest at another venue.

Our wedding was the best day of our lives and The Powelton Club made it everything we could have imagined and more. Rebecca's attention to detail and patience were phenomenal. The food and venue was absolutely gorgeous. We received so many compliments about the food, décor and wonderful interactions our guests had with the staff. The weather was absolutely perfect! It was truly a day we will never forget. We plan to have any special occasions in the future at The Powelton Club. It is a wonderful setting, great atmosphere and has an exceptional staff. Rebecca you are the best and I couldn't have found a better person to help me breeze through my planning and make this the best day of our lives. My husband and I are truly grateful and happy we were able to have our wedding at the Powelton Club. We thank you all so much. We will remember this day for the rest of our lives and how truly amazing it was.
