Social Activities & Dining

CLC showcases fun social events for adults, kids and the whole family. Family events include Brunch with Santa, a Children's Halloween Party, the Easter Egg Breakfast & Egg Hunt, Pool parties and Midnight Swims, an annual Fishing Derby, our memorable Fourth of July Fireworks Extravaganza and Carnival, and a hugely popular Family New Year's Eve Party.

Adults are also treated to just as much fun with big parties and dances, including the uproarious season-ending Closing Party held in early February, the First Tee Party in May staged on the golf course, the annual lakeside Floatboat Party, a July 3rd Big Band Concert and Picnic overlooking the Lake, live Las Vegas comedians in January and our popular Nine, Wine & Dine social golf nights held throughout the summer.

More sophisticated events include the annual Wine Show and Tasting held in March, and an annual elegant black tie Tea Dance that kicks off the Christmas season each year at the Club. Small, casual, wine and beer tastings are regularly offered in the Tavern throughout the year, and live music is a highlight during our Sunset Cocktails events held on the outdoor Patio at poolside Thursday evenings during the summer (weather permitting).

Of course, the Club also provides the most elegant, delicious and memorable feasts on important family holiday occasions such as Easter, Mother’s Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.

Club members are treated to a dining experience that is distinctively differerent from any other eatery in the region. In addition to serving delicious food, everybody knows your name here at the Club. Our professional staff is committed to personalizing every member dining experience and ensuring that it is exceptional. The comfort and camaraderie of the round bar in the Tavern is the meeting place of the Club, only surpassed by our expansive Patio with picturesque views of the Lake. While the Club’s intimate Donald Ross Room provides a dining atmosphere of relaxed elegance for adults only, children can order from kid-tested and approved children’s and tweener’s menus in the Family Dining Room, on the Patio or poolside.

The Club prides itself on our award winning Chef, Walter Makuch, who consistently delivers diverse menus to satisfy a multitude of palettes. From fresh seafood and steaks to casual fare and artisan pizzas, the countless choices will always delight and satisfy you. But what truly makes a dining experience here special is the Club’s commitment to personalized service that is warm, welcoming, efficient and professional.

Congress Lake Club's stunning Clubhouse features 5,000 square feet of space for special family events, private dinners, entertaining, or that once-in-a-lifetime daughter's wedding or parents’ golden anniversary. Our highly experienced, attentive, and friendly staff provide detailed professional planning, four star menus, and first class service in the most elegant of settings.

The Club is also an ideal venue for our members’ professional and personal entertainment needs. CLC provides multiple rooms of varying sizes for meetings and entertaining customers and clients. Amenities include wireless internet, audio/visual equipment, and 10 modern, comfortably appointed overnight hotel suites, conveniently located only steps away. Consider combining your business meeting with lunch, 18 holes of golf, and a great dinner for the perfect corporate retreat.
