Our Story


Grand Valley Golf & Country Club, since it’s establishment in 1982, has been known as one of the most fun and family-oriented golf courses in the Tri-City Region.


Grand Valley Golf Course was the brainchild of Jim Horvath, who was the owner and architect of this semi-private golf course.  The official opening date for the first 9 holes was May 8th, 1982, with the next 9 holes opening up in 1986.


It was in the spring of 1988, when Bill & Mary Ann Merkir and Geza & Helen Kocsis bought the golf course, restaurant and banquet facilities from the Horvath family. From that day on, the focus on affordable golf, quality restaurant and banquet food, and attention to detail, continued throughout their years of ownership. 


In 2020, Jon Petrovski took over the business from the Merkir family. In the past few years the course has continued to change and evolve. More of the Petrovski family have been involved as the years have gone by, and continue to run this course on the basis of family. 

There is a great sense of pride with what has been accomplished at Grand Valley Golf & Country Club since 1988, and there is a great sense of excitement with what is still to be accomplished. We are continually trying to improve and update our facility and course. We are excited to see what the future holds.


Our focus is on innovation, change, quality food, and a fun evnironment for all.


So, whether you are golfing on our course, having something to eat in our restaurant or patio, or enjoying a get-together in our banquet facility, on behalf of the Petrovski family, I want to thank you and I hope that you have a fun and memorable time while you are with us.


Respectfully yours,


The Petrvoski Family and staff
