Our Rustic Pavilion provides a year-round Wedding Ceremony option — with beautiful pond views overlooking the golf course, and protection from the sun and elements for your guests. The pavilion can also be used as a stress-free ceremony location backup for the Lakeview Arbor.  Features include Amish-crafted board and batten natural wood farmhouse siding, standing seam black metal roof, reclaimed wood 10’ center arch, stunning chandeliers, professional landscaping, and  Edison-style party lights that illuminate the perimeter.

If you are looking for an open-air outdoor Wedding Reception venue, our Rustic Pavilion offers beautiful pond views overlooking the golf course and provides protection from the sun and elements for your guests. Your sweetheart table will nestle perfectly between our stained arch center pillars providing spectacular scenic views. As the sun sets, our Edison Party Lights will illuminate the perimeter in farmhouse charm. Set up will include White Round Tables and Chairs, Buffet Tables, and Outdoor Walk-Up Bar.

Exclusively at Chesapeake Bay Golf Club. Plan your perfect Outdoor Wedding Ceremony with peace of mind – for you and your guests! The Rustic Pavilion can be reserved the day of your wedding as an inclement weather ceremony location backup for the Lakeview Arbor on the Lawn.



For your Cocktail Hour you have your choice of indoor and outdoor venue spaces. Our most popular option after your Lakeview Arbor Ceremony will be for your guests to stroll down the brick walkway to our beautiful Rustic Pavilion that offers open-air farmhouse charm and incredible views.

In the lower level of our clubhouse, the Trophy Room and Blue Rooms offer elegant and comfortable spaces to dine, mingle and sip. Also the perfect destination for your guests if you choose the Rustic Pavilion for your wedding ceremony.
