I played Green Valley every Monday for 25 years in a defense industry league which moved to Newport National for 2 years and then folded 2 years ago. Nothing has changed. Gary is still in the pro-shop doing a great job interfacing with the public. Buster is still the starter keeping everything going. The course is still exactly the same: great conditions all around - greens are still perfect. The fairways and rough are as good as any courses around. The traps? Well, no course is perfect. Very hard even in today's dry conditions and they play like they need more sand. But adding sand apparently isn't going to fix what is wrong. They need to be rebuilt. And the 6th green still doesn't hold even the most pinched wedge. But all in all, it was a great day on the links playing with three great guys that I met today. Since they brought in new kitchen help a few years ago, the food has been terrific. And there are always great and friendly conversations going on around the bar.

Very good course with a challenging layout, good diversity amongst the holes. Can play a little slow but we got around as a foursome on a Sunday afternoon at 2 PM in 4 hours. Very low maintenance, easy to get along place.

I was a private club "snob" and rarely played public or semi private courses

This place was (to me) another well kept secret among the area golfers...It has qa 600+ yard Par 5...It has huge greens on many holes (think 3putt territory)

Memorable Par 3's ranging from 138 yards to over 200 yards (twice!)

OIt has a spacious practice area as well

GVCC is in very good shape. I played on a Monday morning and played 18 in 3.5 hours.

I came alone and caught up with a very nice couple who invited me to join them. The course is challenging without being overwhelming .

We had a great outing .

Very understated course. Surroundings were not as picturesque as I anticipated but the layout was simple and greens were great. Proved difficult to score. Even the bunkers were well kept and consistent.
