Valley of the Eagles Golf Club, the only Nicklaus Design daily-fee course in Northern Ohio, opened Aug. 8 for golf and dining. The club's 24,000 square-foot clubhouse has the first level fully operational and course conditions are excellent.
 
Set on the site of the former Spring Valley Country Club, Valley of the Eagles was completely redesigned by the team from Nicklaus Design. Last summer, the course opened for a short “preview window” with limited amenities while crews completed construction of the clubhouse. With the clubhouse open and a few enhancements made to the golf course, both the clubhouse and course are ready for golfers.
 
Designed to capture the beauty of the Black River Valley, the golf course plays to a par of 72 and measures 6,941 yards from the tips. The course meanders through Black River Valley’s sheer black shale cliffs and along the Black River, with mature elm, oak and ash trees lining the fairways. 
 
In addition to dining at The Black River Tavern, the clubhouse also features three state-of-the-art golf simulators for year-round and multi-course enjoyment. 

“We’re excited to unveil the completed Valley of the Eagles Golf Club to Cleveland-area golfers,” said Ray Metz, general manager, Valley of the Eagles. “Our team has worked hard over the last two-plus years to deliver incredible golf, club and dining experiences that are unmatched in Northern Ohio.”
 
Valley of the Eagles is located at the intersections of highways 90, 80 and 57 — just 25 miles west of downtown Cleveland — in the beautiful Black River Valley, on the border of Cuyahoga and Lorain counties.
