Renovated historic clubhouse on the 107-year-old Pelham/Split Rock golf course becomes one of the premier New York wedding reception sites and venues for NYC events and fundraisers.

Pelham/Split Rock has been designed to be one of the premier event venues in New York

There's a new and unique place in town for New Yorkers to stage an array of NYC events in a setting that is elegant and unique, with a location close to New York City. New York City Events, the catering sales arm of American Golf Corporation, has completed its $7 million renovation of the historic buildings at the century-old Pelham/Split Rock golf course. The event center accommodations are tailored to bar/bat mitzvahs, business meetings, graduations and other family, community or corporate events, and the newly updated location now boasts one of the most perfectly suited wedding sites in NYC.

"Pelham/Split Rock has been designed to be one of the premier event venues in New York," says Frank Merkel, Regional Director of American Golf. "The golf course setting is exceptional because very few private courses make their facilities available for non-member events. As a municipal course, we're able to make this unique resource available to the general public."

The Pelham golf course was one of the first public courses in the nation when it opened in 1901. Today, its historic clubhouse has been restored to the original condition and enhanced with state-of-the-art amenities, making it one of the preeminent New York wedding reception sites. "Like New York itself, we're combining the best of the old and the new," Merkel says.

In addition to the world-class service provided by the New York City Events staff, Pelham/Split Rock offers:

  • A grand banquet hall, offering a beautiful view of the golf course, for celebrations of 200+ people;
  • Smaller rooms for more intimate gatherings such as corporate offsites;
  • A spacious patio suitable for outdoor ceremonies or receptions
  • Customized golf packages

"The setting is a major amenity in itself," says James Reynolds, Field Marketing Manager for American Golf, "but this is no ordinary golf course. We have a variety of catering packages, and we can offer customized arrangements for parties of any size to receive the finest quality dining experience."

One important feature Pelham/Split Rock provides is convenience to New York City. This attractive feature is a draw for those in search of NYC wedding sites. "We're in Pelham Bay Park, which straddles Manhattan and Westchester County," Reynolds observes. "That makes it easier for people to get here from the city. That also means out-of-town visitors don't have to make inconvenient arrangements for getting to and from the suburbs or the country."
