Mission Valley Country Club was founded in 1967 by a small group of golfers looking for a challenging course to play and the camaraderie of club Members.
The foursome, a banker, an attorney and two salesmen, would play together regularly. The only course in the area available to them at the time was Lake Venice Golf club, which was leased to an operator, and left a lot to be desired.
Over lunch and cocktails at the “19th Hole” at Lake Venice they would complain bitterly about the course conditions and management. They would fantasize about creating a private country club in the area. It was really just a dream at the time, and like most dreams, was destined ultimately to fade away. As fate and circumstance would have it, they combined their imagination and considerable sales ability and brought their dream to fruition.
The original course was designed by David Wallace and the greens and bunkers were redesigned by Ted McAnlis in 1997. In 2003 the fairway bunkers were enhanced and modified by John Sanford. In 2004 the Board approved a $1.7 million dollar budget to refurbish and expand the Clubhouse. This project began in August of 2005 and was completed in September of 2006.
The championship 18 hole, par 72 golf course provides golfers with a challenging test of golf. Mission Valley Country Club will enhance your lifestyle… we invite you to play a round at our Club!
