The Valley City Town and Country Club (VCTCC) has deep roots in the community of Valley City. The course layout was created by E.H. McFarland and both the course and original clubhouse were completed in 1922, making this their 100th year! If you have visited the club in the last few months, you may have noticed some of the changes that have been made. Manager Chance Fraze, who joined the team in the fall of 2021, has made it a goal of his to make their 100th year one of their best ones yet! Chance and the board have great visions for the Country Club and have worked with club and team members, various community members, and local businesses in order to make many of these visions a reality.
As you may know, VCTCC is not only open to its members but is available for community use as well. While membership comes with perks (discounted prices, private events, tournaments, and much more), the public is still invited and welcome to golf, utilize several amenities, and enjoy drinks and delicious food at Trestles Bar & Grill inside the clubhouse. Trestles recently updated their menu and offers a variety of entrée options for both lunch and dinner. They also boast food specials Monday - Friday and happy hour from 4-6pm daily. In the last few months, some enhancements were made to their banquet area, making the space more inviting for events like weddings and banquets. They have also added an additional space in the basement called The Bunker that can be used for smaller events. It would serve as a great space for birthday or retirement parties, business meetings, and graduation open houses. This past winter, they moved their pro shop upstairs and also added a gaming lounge with a golf simulator that overlooks the racquetball courts so that you can golf year round at the club.
On top of all of these changes, there is still much more in the works! They will soon begin renovations on part of the bar at Trestles and hope to install new flooring in their banquet room before long. They plan to host additional events and tournaments in the future and enhance some of the ones that are currently in place. The Country Club also plans to host a celebration in honor of their 100th year this summer, which will take place around the Club Tournament on August 20th so be on the lookout for more information to come. With all these exciting things happening at the Valley City Town and Country Club, I highly encourage you to check it out for yourself and follow them on Facebook to stay up to date on the current happenings at the club.
