Country Club is a 36-hole private facility. William P. Bell designed the
Hill Course in 1926, offering great views of the Valley below, especially
from the finishing holes. The Valley Course was built by then-owner Larry
Curtola in 1954. Flat and more wide-open, it’s easier to navigate. Walking
is allowed on both courses. The Hill Course measures 6,219 yards from the
back tees, while the Valley Course plays slightly longer at 6,678 yards.
The Club counts roughly 1,100 member families, who enjoy the diverse range
of family-oriented amenities. These include a well-equipped swimming pool,
tennis program and a Bocce Complex. Fine dining is offered in the Veranda
