Chester Valley has long been considered, by most, one of the “hidden gems” of Philadelphia golf, and as such was selected to host the Senior PGA tour in 1985. Hosting the Senior tour for 13 of its 17 years in the Philadelphia region, Chester Valley became known as one of the toughest tests on the Senior tour. Its 6th hole was ranked in the top five toughest holes, year to year, including the Senior U.S. Open golf holes. Golf at CVGC continues to thrive as it nears its centennial. CVGC continues to be thought of as a hidden gem, and remains to be one of the premier courses in Chester County, the Philadelphia region, and the entire Delaware Valley.CVGC is an equity club with approximately 500 total members. Founded in 1923, CVGC underwent a renovation to its greens tees, and fairways in 2008. Bunkers were restored in 2004. (www.chestervalleygc.org)
