The Corona Yacht Club is a 20-acre private estate specifically used for special events. Although the venue was officially established in the 80s by a successful architect, it was only open for limited corporate events and weddings. The current owner opened the club to the general public in the 90s because he wanted people to experience the beauty of this “hidden” oasis.
Our goal is to give you the freedom to create exactly the type of event…
A unique venue that is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression, The Corona Yacht Club is located just 25 minutes east of Palm Springs and is easily accessible from Interstate 10. Golf courses, hotel accommodations and other desert amenities are just five minutes from the site.

Each one with its own special charm. We invite you to take a journey through our beautiful site and we hope to see you soon for your next special event.
At the heart of the site is a two-acre Lagoon surrounded by an intimate meandering path laced with benches, lush landscaping and palm trees. Also along the path are small huts that can be used for food stations, interactive exhibits or simple leisure stops for guests as they stroll around the lake. At night, the entire area is illuminated with tiki torches, colored spotlights and twinkle lights, creating a soft, luminous setting. An island with a flowing waterfall adds a special touch to the lake area. Two other waterfalls are located around the perimeter of the Lake.
A 1000 square-foot dock extends over the water, offering a perfect setting for a dance floor or other entertainment and presentations.
The manicured lawn and blooming rose bushes create a perfect place for a wedding ceremony or a dinner. A patio overlooking the Lawn is often used for overflow seating, buffet set-up or a stage for corporate presentations.
This charming structure area above the Croquet Lawn adds a unique touch to any event. The Pavilion Deck easily transforms into a second dance floor or dessert area.
Palm Tree Grove
The only disturbance for you and your guests in this unique, private area is the occasional rustle of the graceful Palm Trees. It’s perfect for an elegant dinner party, a festive buffet or a sunset ceremony. A long imperial table creates a dramatic visual for guests as they enter The Grove. This long area, lined with mature Palm Trees, can seat up to 300 people. Uplights on the Palm Trees give this area a soft glow at night.
The club’s covered reception area is ideal for dinners and cocktail receptions. It provides just enough protection from the elements while still capturing the open, airy essence of an outdoor event. A large service bar is also conveniently located in this area.
We love hearing what our clients have to say:
This place was absolutely perfect for our wedding. The rustic setting left little for the imagination. Our decorations were minimal, as we worked mainy with the natural beauty of the venue. With the Indio hills set in place as a backdrop, and the shady oasis provided by the palm trees and the water features, our theme was given to us before we even decorated. This was the first venue we looked at and there was no need to look elsewhere.
I am so happy that I made this gorgeous venue the location to my wedding reception. It was beautiful and romantic, definitely worth every penny! All of our guest loved the place. It was important to us that our guest enjoyed themselves, and it makes us happy knowing that they did! There is just so much to see and say about the Ranch. I recommend anyone who comes across this website to schedule their tour to see for themselves! I promise it would be worth your time. Also, the manager was extremely helpful. She was very easy to contact regarding any questions. She's a sweetheart, and a great person to work with.
Our experience with the Corona Yacht Club could not have been more magical. Every one of our guests commented on the sheer beauty of the property and the warm professionalism that Sara represented. Even our guests who were long-time residents of the Palm Springs and Palm Desert area asked how we found such an absolute jewel. Our wedding truly was the best day of our lives and we could not have imagined a more perfect venue for the event.
The site was absolutely beautiful. It made the event, not just for me, but for my guests. They were still talking about it for weeks afterward. We couldn't have been more pleased.
The Corona Yacht Club is one of our favorite corporate event venues. The first surprise is the venue itself with the beautifully lit lake and surrounding Palapas and then my favorite is my client's “Aha” moment upon discovery of the Palm Grove where the intimate dinner under the stars waits. This far surpasses all expectations.
Corona Yacht Club is the best kept location secret in the Valley. And, it's the most unique and beautiful! If you want a setting that feels worlds away, that your guests will still be talking about a year later, that is large enough and yet romantic and intimate - Corona Yacht Club is it! Our daughter's wedding was so beautiful here... the staff was great too!
The grounds are serene, unique and make you feel as if you are in a tropical paradise. The staff was very professional and we experienced a beautiful and unique celebration for a very reasonable price here in the valley! We highly recommend The Corona Yacht Club!
You have such a delightfully different venue - totally unexpected for the “middle of the desert”! I truly love to show off your lush little gem to my clients! I look forward to many more events!
We did have June wedding, so it was slightly warm, but with fans and misters it kept it pretty comfortable. And once the sun set it was perfect.!The staff was very helpful, accommodating, friendly, and welcoming. We highly recommend the Corona Yacht Club to anybody looking to make their wedding, or any special event that much more amazing!
