Pleasant Valley Country Club
In 1959, Pleasant Valley Country Club was carved out of an expansive three hundred fifty acre apple orchard and in 1961, under the watchful eye of Cosmo "Cuz" Mingolla, the club opened its doors. Today Pleasant Valley Country Club is owned by the Magill Family who once were members, opened the Highfields Golf & Country Club in Grafton and returned to purchase the course they love.
Rich in history and tradition, Pleasant Valley Country Club has built a nationally acclaimed reputation since its debut in 1961. Known as New England’s Home of Professional Golf, Pleasant Valley is also considered one of central New England’s finest banquet & golf-outing facilities.
Professional golf came to Sutton, Massachusetts beginning with the 1962 LPGA Lady Carling Open.
