Beauty, elegance and a party for the ages. That’s what clients will get when they book an event at Engineers Country Club (ECC). The private country club located in Roslyn Harbor on Long Island’s historic Gold Coast has a storied history, so much so that many brides and grooms have decided to start their own tale beginning with their wedding.
“Besides having the rich history of the PGA Championship and U.S. Amateur, Engineers Country Club has been completely renovated with a sleek transitional design pleasing the eyes of all,” said Tucker Burns, general manager of the club. “ECC has a large cocktail space and a ballroom to fit 300 people with a dance floor. Our extraordinary renowned Executive Chef Steven DeBruyn, along with our entire team of professionals, will be sure to wow our clienteles palates while delivering a memorable and world class event.”
A destination for weddings, ECC makes it a point to customize packages and events for each couple so no two affairs are the same. As far at the newly renovated clubhouse goes, it’s taken two years, but is now a state-of-the-art facility.
“RXR purchased Engineers in the winter of 2017 and has invested more than $4 million dollars on the clubhouse, banquet space, kitchen, golf course, aquatics and tennis,” noted Burns. “Our newly updated ballroom offers an elite banquet space to accommodate all types of affairs. Personally, I’ve never seen Engineers look this fabulous and captivating.”
When planning a menu, Burns says that Chef DeBruyn gives a realistic approach to cuisine while focusing on a fresh farm-to-table style. Guests can dine on Charmoula Shrimp atop fennel, arugula and orange salad with olive tapenade and marcona almonds or a smoked salmon and asparagus tartlet with goat cheese mousse and ribbon vegetables among other appetizer options. Entrées include filet mignon with grilled shrimp and choron sauce or French breast of chicken with herb crusted Atlantic cod, to name a few. All herbs are handpicked from the chef’s own on-site organic culinary garden.
“When Chef Steven isn’t hard at work crafting delicious specialties, he keeps busy in the kitchen baking his own bread and gourmet desserts,” said Burns.
ECC is not without it’s team of event planners for parties and celebrations. According to Burns, ECC’s catering team of professionals are more party consultants than party planners. With their extensive experience, they can offer recommendations to whatever the client may need.
“We welcome all clients to bring their own vendors providing they carry insurance and are up to our standards,” he said of the club’s guidelines for outside vendors. “Since Engineers is now privately owned, you do not need to be a member of the club in order to host a private affair. Therefore, it really is a new spot on the radar and not your typical event space.”
Aside from it’s beauty and prime location, Engineers Country Club ECC prides itself on playing a key role in their clientele’s life memories, all with the help of team of professionals who truly care about that special day.
