“We chose Golden Valley Golf and Country Club this year for its pristine course and beautiful clubhouse that could accommodate our growing attendee list of 500 guests,” says Ray Barton, Chairman of Great Clips. “This was the first year we held our event here and the staff was outstanding and made our golf event, which included a double shotgun, program and dinner, perfect in every way. We were so impressed with how Golden Valley Golf and Country Club handled every aspect of our event that we’ve already booked our 17th annual event there for next year.”
