Meridian Valley Country Club officially opened on July 1, 1967 with 9 of the 18 holes ready for play. The second nine holes and clubhouse opened to equally grand fanfare in May 1968. This exceptional 18-hole layout was designed by Ted Robinson, one of the nation’s leading golf course architects, who chose the site based on the stunning views the surrounding area provided.

Meridian Valley CC has hosted the 1972, 1976, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2009, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Washington Open Invitational, as well as the SAFECO Classic from 1982 until 1999. MVCC has grown into one of the Northwest’s most respected golf courses to the credit of the founding members who successfully achieved their goal to develop a first-class golf club.
