Family Reunion Event Spaces & Catering

Perfect Spaces for Any-Sized Family Event

If you are planning a large family gathering, don’t fret—several indoor and outdoor spaces are available, depending on your particular need, the season, and availability.


The Main Lodge houses several meeting and event spaces—perfect for large celebration dinners and gatherings. We likely have the AV equipment you’ll need to project years of family slides and videos (please check with us in advance). Our event planning staff is happy to suggest games & exercises to help loosen up the crowd and bring everyone together.

Grill & Bar

Looking for something less rigid and more relaxed? Head to Otis’s Grill & Bar for a casual group dinner or meet on the lakeside deck for a nightcap. Otis’s deck overlooks both the 18th green and Sugar Lake, providing picture-perfect scenery for a get together or on-your-own dinner plans. You’ll enjoy westerly sunset views sweeping over the incomparable Sugar Lake (a crowd favorite).


Sugar Lake Lodge’s accomplished on-site Executive Chef, Kim Fuller, prepares sumptuous meals using fresh ingredients with a creative touch. Upon request, special menus can also be prepared for most events.


Bonfires are like truth serum: When it’s dark out and you’re staring into the red-hot coals, even the quietest person tends to open up. Whether you roast hot dogs, get your fingers sticky from a s’more, or just gaze up at the stars, you’ll create lots of memories around the fire. Bonfire pits are located by every cluster of golf villas, on the beach, and outside the Main Lodge overlooking Sugar Lake.
