In each issue of the magazine we highlight a different facility that offers space for meetings and events. In the Spaces section of our summer issue, we featured Hillcrest Golf Club in St. Paul. Aside from its 72-par, 18-hole course, the private club also offers a number of flexible, year-round function spaces for both members and non-members.
Each space has something different to offer, whether it is casual or formal ambiance, views of the course or access to outdoor space. The Fireside Room can accommodate groups as large as 60 and offers wide-ranging views of the golf course as well as entry to the patio and screened porch. The President's Boardroom, which also has access to the patio, is a great option for private meetings with its leather chairs, conference table and audiovisual and teleconferencing capabilities. The room fits 40, but 12 seated at the conference table. The HIllcrest Grill, which regularly serves upscale grill fare, can be used to host groups as large as 60. For bigger parties, the renovated Ballroom has space for 120 people, but can be adjoined with the Hillcrest Grill and Fireside Room to seat groups as large as 240.
In addition to function space, the club also offers wireless Internet and audiovisual packages, which can include an easel, flip chart pad, podium, television and LCD projector and screen. Aside from the food served at Hillcrest Grill, there are a number of break, lunch and dinner packages available to groups as well.
