In 1931, a group of individuals bought the Masonic Country Club, which was perched on a scenic bluff overlooking the Grand Rapids, Michigan, skyline. They renamed it, Green Ridge Country Club. Over half a century later, the members of Green Ridge voted to sell the property and construct a stunning new facility and course on a beautiful, rolling 357 acre property just east of the city.
The new club eventually offered members a unique combination of two 18-hole golf courses, an Olympic-sized pool, four regulation tennis courts and a stately clubhouse. A combination of old-growth forestland and river-valley plateau, beginning in the mid 19th century the area became known as Egypt Valley. The new facility was appropriately named Egypt Valley Country Club.
