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
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!
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.
