Decent food and friendly staff. The service can be hit and miss.
I've been to a couple of wedding receptions here at MVCC and always have had a good experience. This last time I was the Director of the Feast and interacted with the staff on personal level. All of the staff was more then eager to help where they were needed with the schedule for the night as well as taking care of any hiccups with the sound system and serving the food. There are some great places on the golf course for wedding photos as well, which is convenient for having your reception at the same location as the photo shoot. Parking is plentiful and the Country Club also offers a portable Bar for your guest to purchase cocktails during the reception. More...
Invited to fill in at the Member Guest event. The facilities and grounds were excellent. Every hole offered a unique challenge. The greens are plus size with lot of change in elevation. Looking forward to playing again if offered the opportunity. More...
Richfield High School Class of 1969 just held their 50th reunion at MVCC. It was a fantastic experience. Patricia and her team did an absolutely exemplary job insuring we had a memorable evening. Everyone present had a good time and the reunion committee received nothing but wonderful compliments from our guests. Thank you, again, Patricia and the rest of the team at MVCC. We definitely recommend MVCC for your next event. More...
We are not members. We played today because we bought a round of 4 at an auction. Great course! Fairways pristine! The greens had been aireated recent and were in good shape. Staff was very kind and made us feel like members for 1 day. Great Vibe! Highly recommend this course! More...
The food they served at the luncheon I was at was amazing! And the service was outstanding!
We got compliments at our wedding reception that it was one of the best weddings people have ever been to because of the amazing staff, food, and decor in the ballroom! Patricia was so easy to work with and made sure that our day was perfect and that we didn’t have to worry about a thing during the reception. I totally would recommend MVCC for wedding receptions and I also appreciate the pricing they offer for the venue! More...
Great course we had a charity event there and we keep coming back
Great food and friendly staff!

Member guest ladies night. Oh so fun!
Vast offerings all delicious for meals!
Great location and food.
Great place to have a party. You don't have to be a member. Great pricing.
Server (Member Dining Only and Special Events)
Excellent hours. Flexible scheduling. Pay is fair considering being a PT employee. Servers receive a sales commission and additional gratuity. Always fun times at The Valley.
Excellent food and service in a pleasant environment.
Awesome golf course. Very friendly staff. Great food as well.
A professional but laid back environment. Employee handbook provideshelpful information pertaining to job and performance requirement and opportunities, well thought out and documented processes.
Nice place to host a meeting, friendly server and good food.

Perfect night to golf at my happy place.
Lots of hilly greens. Long greens.
Nice course to be able to use your Driver.
As a place for an awards lunch it was top notch - food was actually very good and the view of the golf course was a nice change
Went for a wedding and had a good time. The staff was helpful and kind.
The MVCC was a wonderful venue to host my loved one's memorial service and luncheon. The ballroom overlooked glistening snow covered hills and gently swaying ornamental grasses which created a serene backdrop for the service. Patricia Mullen the Catering Director took the time to understand our wishes. Her creative ideas made our event more beautiful than we imagined! The luncheon was delicious. Our guests said this was the most elegant memorial event they had ever experienced! Thank you Patricia and the staff at MVCC for taking such good care of our family, our guests and our loved one!

Nice venue. Easy parking good access good Bloomington location.
We hosted our company Holiday party here. We chose this venue as they had competitive prices and they make it feel very festive with their holiday decorations resulting in a great atmosphere. The staff and folks in charge of events were wonderful to work with. Would host here again! More...
Delicious menu! Very little restaurants in our area. Social membership has paid off with the $100 monthly food stipend.
Please give MVCC a look if you are looking to have a wedding in the twin cities area.Minnesota valley county club and it's staff made our wedding night such an amazing and memorable occasion. After meeting with Patricia Mullen and the rest of the planning group for a tour we knew this was the right location for us. Patricia's responsiveness was well above par and her expertise in setting up the location and how to flow through the night made our end of the preparation easy and removed SOOOOO much stress from the location side of the planning. I can't even state how beautiful the views of this location are either there are so many fantastic locations for photos on the grounds and we had so many compliments on the views and scenery from guest. To top this off the Chef (Who's name I've very sadly forgotten) prepared what is quite simply the best food I've ever had at a wedding and our guest continued telling us this for literally weeks after the big day was over. The staff themselves were also constantly on the ball I personally never ran out of a drink and they were readily attending to needs I didn't even think to worry about until they brought them up they were ahead of the curve and due to this we and our guest left the night happy without a single complaint.

I was married on 11.10.2018 at MVCC and it was amazing. I have been told by everyone that the food was amazing and I can tell it's not like that BS thing to tell the groom that the food was good but a genuine response that the food was absolutely delicious. We went with the petite tender, pan seared chicken breast, and pasta fettuccine as our meal options. We held our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception there. It was seamless transition between each part of the night. The staff is amazing. Patricia, Cynthia, and Kirsten are the best. Them and the rest of the staff made our day so special. Even before the ceremony got started, while we were holding pictures at the venue, we were treated with first class! It probably helped that there was snow on the ground and the course was closed but I can promise you that they will do whatever they can to help you out. They even boxed up our centerpiece displays and other decorations at the end of the night!Five stars, top class, beautiful night.Thank you MVCC. More...
The course is practically brand new. New sand traps, bigger greens, and as always, lighting fast greens, has made the course more challenging and and consequently, more strategic!
It was so much fun playing with Sue T and friends for member/guest day. The course was in great shape. The Halloween venue was fun. Thanks to the staff and members for making the day a fantastic experience!! More...

Always fan to play this course
My daughter wedding was Saturday June 9, 2018. It was amazing! Patricia took care of everything for us.
Beautiful course, excellent staff, good food , AWESOME golf cars
Line Cook/Prep Cook, Banquet Cook
I enjoyed working here because I did many different things. I made wood fired pizzas, homemade desserts. Helped with banquets and weddings and buffets. The management was very professional and polite. More...
This facility was absolutely beautiful and breath taking. Loved all of it, staff very helpful and kind.
The venue was beautiful - everything we could have hoped for for our wedding reception!! Patricia, the Catering and Event Director, was terrific to work with! She was extremely responsive, accommodating, and reliable. She answered questions promptly (and at all hours) and fulfilled all of our special requests. We had asked Patricia check with the Head Chef if it would be possible to custom make an Asian-cuisine dish that wasn't on the menu, and the chef whipped up this amazing Bronzini fish and sticky rice dish that was delicious! We were also able to get in the day before to decorate, so we didn't have scramble the day of. When we got to the venue, everything was already set up and ready to go - it was stunning! The service, food and setup was all wonderful - definitely exceeded our expectations! Rick, the head bartender, and Cynthia, the Banquet Manager, were very helpful and accommodating the night of also. Overall, I would highly recommend Minnesota Valley Country Club for a wedding reception or any kind of event! More...
Course, staff and facilities are great! � Some greens are tough to get birdie opportunities (elevated and/or nasty slope) but course is fair if you keep it in play.
Love this place. Great golf, great food, great friends
MVCC is a great place for golf and social. Great place to belong.
I can’t say enough good things about the wonderful service and beautiful venue provided by MVCC! What set it apart from other venues were the upfront costs - we did not feel like we were being nickeled and dimed. For example, there was no surcharge for bringing in your own dessert vendor. You are required to use MVCC catering, but the food taste and presentation was excellent. It is, after all, a private country club that runs its own restaurant year-round. We were pleasantly surprised to see our final bill, which did NOT include cancelled dinner entrees or unopened wine bottles. Patricia (event coordinator) responded to all of my emails, no matter how trivial, in 24 hours or less. On our wedding day, she not only made sure every detail was taken care of, but also personally attended to us so that we could also enjoy the events rather than feel like hosts the entire time. The venue served as a great all-in-one site for our small wedding of 75 with a ceremony room, reception ballroom with dance floor, cocktail area and patio, and of course beautiful green grounds for our pictures. Our wedding was in late May, so the flower garden was not in full bloom. However, the bridge, fountain, grass, and trees provided suitable backdrops. During our ceremony, golfers must have been temporarily stopped from walking past the window, because our pictures did not include random people teeing off in the background! I would recommend MVCC to any couple looking for a seamless and budget-friendly experience. More...
Amazing golf course!! Greens are unbelievably tough....which I think is awesome!
Sophie Willa Larson
I don't often patronize the facility, except perhaps on the patio. I love to walk here and admire the beautifully landscaped greens and flower gardens.
My family and I love this course, it is a very beautiful course and facility.
Beautiful golf course and clubhouse. The banquet facility is very nice and the prices are fair. The catering staff does a lot of work with school and youth programs such as sports teams, choir, skating clubs, and they do a great job.
A typical Day consist of getting the bar set up, meaning fruit cut, beers and wines stocked, and glassware stocked. And taking care of the members who sit at the bar
What a dream day it was to have our wedding reception ta Minnesota Valley Country Club. Patricia and her team were outstanding in providing their services and going out of their way to make our day special. We looked at so many reception venues but upon meeting Patricia and having her walk us through the ballroom, we knew this woudl be the one. They were able to accommodate all the things we wanted to do that day and made it go without any issues. When we had any questions, Patricia was always quick to answer our questions. And the value that they have is amazing (big bang for the buck!). The ballroom and the view of the club are beautiful. All the guests complimented us on the quality of the food and said it tasted fantastic. We received excellent service throughout the night. Having our reception there was everything we hoped for and we would change nothing about it. We would highly recommend having your wedding reception at MVCC! More...

A typical day at work was never boring. There was always something to do in order to keep busy. I learned how to use cash register and work in retail. Management could have been better, but co-workers were fun to work with. More...
We had our wedding reception here and it was absolutely beautiful. Thank you to Patricia, her assistant, and the staff for decorating and tearing down the reception. Also a big thank you to the cook as the food was excellent! MVCC kept our wedding reception completely stress free and we are so thankful. We highly recommend! More...
Beautiful surroundings and great people. No pool, no tennis, just great golf.
We love dining at Minnesota Valley. The waitresses, waiters, and help staff are both friendly and efficient. The food has been very good too ! The atmosphere is pleasant and friendly. I look forward to our next visit. Catherine Fredericks More...
Great lunch! Great service! Beautiful surroundings!
BAG ROOM MANAGER / ASSISTANT CADDIE MASTER
Great place to work for the summers. Nice members, friendly staff. The bag room staff are some of the best workers at the club.
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personaly grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and polictics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew. More...
Course is beautiful. People are super friendly!
My mother got married in this venue 20 years ago and I am so excited to get married there this coming spring. So far, they have been excellent to work with.
Wonderful course, management, greens-keeping, pro shop, lessons, customer service and one great roof that soars like an eagle!!!! Best decision I have made in golf the people are wonderful all around. More...
The staff is extremely professional and timely and has done everything to make my wedding day exactly how I have always imagined it to be. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue. More...
Paul T Stansberry
The Valley.... What a great course with awesome memories!!!!!

Had a fantastic day hitting the course. The grounds were well maintained and they were making a number of improvements. Afterwards we had supper and drinks in the bar. The food was great and the service followed suit. A great experience overall experience. More...

Beautiful location, gorgeous property, quaint friendly atmosphere, fun people to work with!
MVCC ended up being a great venue for our wedding reception. Patricia was very helpful in planning the details. In the beginning there was some confusion with dates, but the date we ended up with worked out very well. The staff at the reception was all very quick and efficient, getting the food out to the guests quickly. The food was also very good, we offered chicken and shrimp scampi. We have gotten a lot of complements on the food! During our engagement they redid their catering menu which means that everything got more expensive then we had originally planned which was a little frustrating, but the quality was all very good. They also allowed us to be flexible with the number of kegs, and other things. Since they do all of the catering in house, it allowed for more flexibility. More...

Good Summer job for a kid who plays sports. Flexible enough and made enough money for a kid in high school.
MVCC was an incredible venue for my wedding. I planned from out of town, and Patricia (the coordinator) and her assistant were amazingly helpful and so fast to respond to my emails. The service was excellent, and the staff were so kind to my guests. The chef made incredible dishes, and everyone raved about the food. He even allowed my dad to bring in homegrown vegetables. There was a small hiccup with one table during our plated dinner service, and the club comped a portion of our bill because of it. I was most impressed that while there were some things that didn't go exactly as planned, the club worked them out on their own or asked my designated person - I didn't know about anything the day of. They were extremely professional and allowed me to just enjoy my day. In addition, they bill afterwards, so while they will stick exactly to the budget, you don't have to worry about payment that day. More...
Attended a lunch brunch following my Uncle's memorial service down the street at the Masonic Home. My cousin is a member of the club which is why were there. The place has a new look to it, clean, bright, and welcoming. Since this was buffet style there isn't much that I can say about the food other than there was a nice variety and the potato salad was extraordinary. I wasn't there when they first came around with cold drinks and apparently they didn't notice I arrived late as I wasn't given a beverage other than the water at the table until later when they offered us coffee.Staff seemed friendly and did a good job other than missing my drink. Would be nice to go back some time for dinner to see what their kitchen can offer. More...
