Event Sales Manager, Chateau Golf & Country Club
What do you do for Chateau Golf & Country Club? I’m the Event Sales Manager for Chateau Golf & Country Club. A typical day for me would be reviewing events scheduled for the week with the Food and Beverage Manager and the Chef to check that all of our needs are met. I check into each room to ensure they are set to the customers’ satisfaction, along with answering all calls and emails for future events. I also oversee Member Events. I help plan and execute fun and enriching activities for our members such as dinners, dances and more.
What are some of the amenities? Our amenities include a full-service golf practice facility, nine tennis courts, a resort-style swimming pool and fitness facility and multiple dining venues. Our elegant clubhouse can accommodate 10 to 500 guests for luncheons, dinners, showers, meetings, cocktail parties and weddings.
What is included in a regular membership? With our regular golf membership, members and their families can enjoy full use of the Club’s facilities – golf course, driving range, practice areas, tennis courts, swimming pool, fitness center, clubhouse dining room, lounge, card and game playing areas, line dancing and a children’s swim team membership (for an additional fee). We have specific ladies and senior discounts available as well. Our young adult members ages 21 through 34 can enjoy full use of the Club’s facilities as listed above (excluding Saturday mornings tee times, depending on availability). At the age of 35, conversion to a regular membership is required and doesn’t require an additional initiation fee. Monthly dues would increase to the current rate at the time of conversion. Regular and intermediate tennis memberships are available with similar amenities and restrictions. Members can also enjoy a social membership with access to all of our amenities with additional fees for the golf and tennis courts. We even have corporate offerings for companies who wish to offer memberships as privileges to their employees.
Are there any exciting new events on the horizon? We just finished a comprehensive renovation of our green’s complexes; our championship golf course is among the best in the state and we are currently in the process of getting our clay courts resurfaced.
Is the Club easily accessible from the city? Chateau Golf & Country Club is conveniently located just 15 minutes from New Orleans and five minutes from the airport.
