By Kim Kislowski published May 14, 2018
As one of Chicago Southland’s premier banquet and meeting venues, The Odyssey Country Club features newly renovated rooms with views of rolling hills and lakes, making it the perfect place for your next event.
Overlooking the par 72, 18-hotel golf course designed by Curtis Strange, the Odyssey’s elegant banquet facilities can accommodate 75 to 1,000 guests for business meetings, bridal showers, weddings, charity functions and more.
Since opening in 1994, The Odyssey provides guest with an intimate setting and an elegant atmosphere and service. First impressions are important and upon arrival, the impressive entry foyer that has twin staircases and a two-story fireplace will mesmerize you. The outdoor gazebos and floral gardens offer a picturesque setting, just steps away from the golf course.
Creative, Unique Spaces
The venue’s Terrace Ballroom and adjacent outdoor veranda can accommodate up to 1,000 guests in a reception-style setting. The on-site event specialists can assist in helping you coordinate seating arrangements, dining options and more for your event.
If you’re planning business functions, the on-site culinary team can create a perfect menu for your event. A native of Chicago, executive chef Kenneth Regan is committed to bringing personalized service and five-star dining, with a variety of menu options to choose from, to your group.
If your group is between 40 to 75 people, take advantage of the venue’s semi-private space and enjoy the adjoining public Sunday Champagne Brunch. The room has private walls and dedicated space for your group, so you all can enjoy the Sunday brunch in private as you all discuss the day’s plans.
The Odyssey’s flexibility in event space configurations offers you a variety of ballroom sizes and settings within the venue to choose from. From seated lunches to receptions and even board meetings, the country club can create an intimate setting for your group’s needs.
The Odyssey Country Club completed a major renovation to its banquet and meeting space in 2017. It added platinum wall coverings, crystal chandeliers and finishes along with marble floors throughout the venue.
Color changing lights have been added to the Terrace Room, giving a creative touch to the venue along with color inspiration. You can transform the space to fit your needs and reflect the theme of your event.
