In 1914, Golden Valley Country Club was born with the purchase of a 133-acre site bisected by Bassett Creek. Initially, it was all pasture land and corn fields, but a nine-hole golf course was fashioned out of the space north of the railroad tracks, and play commenced shortly after. The club entered the Roaring Twenties with exuberance, and it was then that the golf course expanded to 18 holes. Membership was then strong, and a new clubhouse was constructed. A. W. Tillinghast, a well-known golf course designer, was retained in 1926 and commenced a three-year renovation of the course. Over the years, many changes have been made to both alter the course and bring it back to its original roots, but today, it has proven itself a championship course and taken on other remarkable roles, hosting elegant weddings and social gatherings.
Located just seven miles from downtown Minneapolis, the Golden Valley Country Club is acclaimed as one of the most prestigious country clubs in the Twin Cities and a desirable wedding destination. For guests’ entertainment, the club features its world-class golf course, both tennis and pool facilities, and social amenities to use. If not entertained at the venue, guests are conveniently located to enjoy all Minneapolis has to offer, along with being within two miles from nearby hotels and 19 miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
