Newcomers of the Beaches

As a prospective member, you may attend two Monthly Luncheons to check us out.  Each luncheon is comprised of a social time and a short business meeting followed by a program or event. Unless notified otherwise, our Monthly Luncheons are held at the Marsh Landing Country Club.  They are always held at 11:00 a.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, September through June.  Scroll down to the bottom of this page for the address, directions and a map showing the location.

Reservations and Costs

You must have a paid reservation to attend the luncheon.  We are not able to accommodate walk-ins on the day of the luncheon. Luncheon costs are payable online by credit card, debit card or PayPal account.  When making your reservation, you will select an entree as part of the reservation. There will be 3 entree selections including a gluten free alternative.  The ability to make a lunch reservation closes at midnight on the Thursday before the luncheon (1st Thursday of each month). Don't miss the deadline!

Seating

Depending on the program, we may have a table just for new members or you may be assigned a table number and will sit with both established and new members.  Check with the hostess at the name tag table if you have a question about where to sit. We vary our seating arrangements between open and assigned seating by month.  September, December, February, April and June are open seating months, and you can choose where and with whom to sit. October, November, January, March, and May are assigned seating months, and you will be given a table number. This helps us mix and mingle to keep meeting new people! 

If you plan to attend the luncheon as a guest of a member, or if you are a member and you plan to bring a guest, the member should register herself and the guest on the same same luncheon registration.  This will let the luncheon chairman know you are coming together and she can be sure to accommodate your wanting to be seated together. If a member decides to bring a guest after registering herself, the guest should register herself using the home page Monthly Luncheon Reservation process, and the member should notify the luncheon chairman that you should be seated together.  Back to Top

New Member Introductions

At your first luncheon as a member, you may be asked to stand up and briefly introduce yourself. Let people know where you came from and what your interests are so people with similar interests or backgrounds will seek you out.  Enjoy meeting everyone; we all want to make new friends! Back to Top

Menu Cards

Inside your name tag will be a small slip of paper. This is a reminder of what you ordered for lunch and is used to advise the Marsh Landing Country Club staff of your selection.  Take the slip of paper out and put it by your dessert silverware so the wait staff can see it.   We always have multiple entrees to choose from when making your reservation, including a gluten free option.  Note:  You are not allowed to change your entrĂ©e the day of the lunch.  Marsh Landing Country Club has prepared lunches based on our pre-order and your change will negatively impact someone else's order.
