Looking for golf, swim, tennis? GVCC waiving initiation fee through end of Dec.
I just found out that Green Valley Country Club is waiving their membership initiation fee (normally about $2800 with tax) until the end of December. I do not work for the club, but my family belongs there. Just thought I would pass this money-saving tip along to those that may be looking for these types of activities.
The club is located in North Greenville just beyond Furman. They have a golf course, 5 tennis courts (3 clay, 2 hard), swimming pool and a small, but really nice fitness center that overlooks Paris mountain. The fitness center is never crowded and offers some yoga/toning classes.
There are different types of memberships - golf, sports, junior golf, etc.
The current owner has done a lot of renovations to the facilities and they keep it up beautifully. One con, in my opinion, is the food. You can get a decent burger and snack stand fare, but I think the menu and food is in need of an upgrade (and there is a quarterly dining minimum of $150).
And, BTW, the vibe at GVCC is very laid back. There is no country-club stuffiness to be found.
