Located just minutes from downtown Minneapolis, the Golden Valley Country Club golf course is second to none.

Designed by A.W. Tillinghast, one of the most preeminent classic golf course architects, our 18-hole, par 73, world-class golf course not only features the best playing conditions in the Twin Cities, but is arguably the most scenic, challenging, enjoyable and golfer-friendly course you’ll ever want to play.

Think about the great golf courses Tillinghast has built. I’m a Tilly fan so I read his books and I read his theories and everything that he does. He played you from flat bunkers with
grass faces just like this. So he wanted you to put the ball in the air out of the bunkers.
Genius idea!
— Rocco Mediate, 2016 Sr. PGA Champion
 

Our course was designed by noted architect A.W. Tillinghast in 1926, albeit golf had been played on the grounds since 1914.

Other noted Tillinghast designs include Baltusrol, Winged Foot, San Francisco, Quaker Ridge and Bethpage Black, and to date, his course designs have hosted more USGA Championships than any other architect in America. Tillinghast gave Golden Valley 18 outstanding holes which have played host to both professional and amateur tournaments throughout the years. Golden Valley Country Club provides all of the design features that Tillinghast believed were important to a championship course. The course features a risk-reward approach to tee shots and approach shots. Good shots are rewarded and allow for scoring opportunities. Wayward shots will find trouble and require a variety of rescue shots to recover.


THE COURSE

Tillinghast believed that “a round of golf should be 18 inspirations”. This is reflected in his design and in the name of each hole which is meant to be directional, inspirational and cautionary.


Many of the greens bear the Tillinghast signature: severely sloped, typically from back to front and protected by deep bunkers at the front corners. These features are complemented by the century-old trees that line the fairways, making position off the tee a key ingredient for scoring well. Like most other great Tillinghast courses, Golden Valley has worked hard to preserve its heritage with very little substantial change over the years to the course layout. The club has brought in golf architects strictly as surrogates for A. W. Tillinghast. Their mission has always been to bring the course closer and closer to the original Tillinghast concept. The bunkers have been restored to their original design and location. A variety of tee boxes have been created that allow the course to remain challenging as technology in equipment has advanced. The course can be played from distances of 5,400-7,002 yards making it fun, but challenging for all abilities.

Please enjoy your round, your day, and your friends as you embark on the journey that is Golden Valley Country Club!
