Just sixteen months after the meeting took place, Green Valley County Club was born.
Ken Dash, president of Green Valley Country Club, describes making it to the one hundred year mark as a triumph for his community.
“It is a testament to the generations of our Green Valley Country Club family, which includes not only our members, but our dedicated staff, to be what I believe is the last remaining member-owned, family-values Jewish country club in the Greater Philadelphia area,” said Dash. “It’s because our past and present members are leaders in the Philadelphia community, volunteering their time and donating their financial resources to both Jewish and nondenominational charities, organizations and causes, which sustain our club. Those values, giving back to the community, are what we embody.”
The club was founded by the Jewish Community, however there are many non-Jewish members today. The club still takes care to look after its heritage, while remaining inclusive.
Green Valley Country Club’s 18-hole golf course was designed by famous golf course architect William Flynn. The club is also home to other luxuries such as an Olympic-size heated swimming pool, tennis courts, exercise room and spa. The club sits on a beautiful 182-acre piece of land in Lafayette Hill.
