Egypt Valley's two championship courses are the vision of legendary golf course architect Arthur Hills, who designed only two 36-hole course facilities over his career. Each course uniquely challenging, the Ridge and the Valley both rely on the wooded Michigan landscape to test even the game's best.
As golfers ourselves, we understand the benefits that dutiful practice and professional attention can have on your game. Because of this, Egypt Valley is committed to improving the quality of play for all golfers. Our multiple practice facility, complete with a full-driving range, a short-game area and a putting green, is the perfect place to refine your swing or just warm up for a round. If your game demands further attention, Egypt Valley offers private and group lessons with one of our PGA
Professionals. In addition to their vast expertise, our Pros use video review technology to help improve your swing. Furthermore, if your equipment isn't delivering the results you demand, our Golf Pro Shop is a certified Titleist, Ping, Cobra and Taylor Made Fitting Center.
Egypt Valley is also committed to teaching the next generation of golfers. Between time on the range, short game area and putting green, our Junior Golf Program is dedicated to instilling young players with the foundation for a successful life with golf.
The championship layout at Egypt Valley Country Club provides a stern test of golf to anyone who has the chance to enjoy this West Michigan gem. Tight fairways and pristine putting greens that are wider than they are deep make this Arthur Hills design a great play. Having been battle-tested by some of the best professionals and amateurs in the world, Egypt Valley Country Club delivers a first-rate championship golf experience.

We also believe that golf is a game best enjoyed with friends! Our weekly Golf Leagues are perfect for when you're ready for some friendly competition. With a third of our women and nearly half of men participating, League is a great way to practice, have fun and meet new golfers.
In addition to League, Egypt Valley hosts many major club events throughout the season. Our member-guest, member-member and parent-junior championships are great excuses to hit the course with your friends and family. While our Hole-in-One-Club events modify the game into a series of fun, par-three holes, if you're looking to be king of the Club, the annual Club Championship events await you.
With our busy schedules, golf league gives us a great opportunity to meet new and old members in a fun, competitive atmosphere.
