Mahoning Valley Country Club in Carbon County is closing its doors for the 2019 season.
In an announcement made on the club’s website, after nine years of operating the club, the ownership group has made the decision to close for the upcoming season.
The statement said that all membership dollars spent for the 2019 season will be reimbursed or transferred as credits to Great Bear Golf Club in East Stroudsburg, based on the customer’s preference.
The club’s general manager, Bill Smith, did not give a specific reason for the closure, but said on the club’s website, “time spent as the club’s general manager has been rewarding and I appreciate my interactions with all of you.”
Club management said on its website that if any groups are interested in exploring the club, the general manager is available to show the property. “We appreciate all our customers and member’s financial and social support of the club over the years,” Smith said in the statement.
Smith was not immediately available for comment.
According to public property records, Bethlehem-based Lehigh Gas Corporation bought the club in 2010.
