Friendly Hills Country Club is the best ever. We had our wedding there on January 21, 2018. The venue is amazing. Great location for outside wedding, on the golf course. My friends and family enjoy themselves and also the food was great. The staff there was great as well, thank you so much Brittany K. our day was amazing and I want to thank you for all your hard work. Mr. & Mrs. W

About

This green oasis on Whittier’s north side is everything you expect in a traditional country club: a curving pine- and oleander-lined road whisks you up to its gate, and there’s a sea of trees at the entrance and a feeling of leafy quiet once you arrive. When you do hear sounds, they’re the happy shouts and squeals of children romping around the club pool while their moms and dads laze about chatting and laughing. 

The clubhouse exterior is creamy white stucco with wide chocolate-colored wood beams and trim. Its look is one of simple sophistication, with Craftsman-style good proportions. But the focus here is on the outdoors, where all wedding ceremonies are held (yes, the weather is that good). They take place on a tiled terrace whose backdrop, the golf course’s 1st and 18th holes, is easily the visual highlight of Friendly Hills. The fairways rise, side by side, up a commanding slope that disappears into the distance. Between them, a long cascade of water, with willows, firs and sycamores strung along its course, spills its way over large boulders to a small lake next to the terrace. The lake, populated with plump swans and ducks, can be reached via an elegant stone-faced bridge that makes a perfect photo-op site. 

Friendly Hills has two excellent places to hold a post-ceremony party: a downstairs banquet room, and an upper reception area that can be used alone or in combination with an adjacent sleek bar. The downstairs space has a wall of tall windows facing the club’s signature first and last holes, and a full-service bar at the far end of room. Flattering indirect lighting along with natural light from outside keeps the place wonderfully well lit.

On May 19th, we held our wedding ceremony and reception at Friendly Hills. From our first meeting with Taylor, we felt very confident we were in good hands. The entire process was seamless and well coordinated. The ceremony on the terrace, cocktail hour, followed by dinner and reception flowed perfectly. Both guests and Vendors were impress by the venue, quality and service we received.

Hats Off to the entire Friendly Hills Staff for making our day special

I can honestly and genuinly say that since day one of venue shopping, I had a very positive feeling about Friendly Hills Country Club (FHCC). The staff were very sweet, informative and not at all pushy. Any question that we asked was answered and it seemed like there was so much flexibility in making sure my fiance and I were happy. Come the day of the wedding, and the coordinator (Taylor) had organized and set up the space BEAUTIFULLY!! Her hard work and efforts made the day even more special. It felt like family! Throughout the night, the waiting staff was equally sweet and helpful. The person appointed to my sweetheart table always made sure our glasses were full and checked in on any of our needs. She even saved us a to-go box of dessert!! I know that many times, the bride and groom dont even get to see their cake after cutting it, but she made sure to take care of us! I also cannot say anough about the breath taking view of the golf course and the great space we had. The hall was perfect for our 200 guests and has a tremendous bar area attached. There was plenty of space and we got so many compliments! Thank you to eveyone at FHCC who made this day happen. I highly recommend FHCC with the highest enthusiasm!

This place is a hidden gemstone, absolutely beautiful! The venue coordinator, Brittany Kuramoto, was so helpful and patient. She made my life as the bride easier (I didn't hire a wedding coordinator). Thank you, Friendly Hills, for making my big day beautiful!
