Special Club Features

Nestled in the quaint village of Gates Mills, just 25 miles east of Cleveland, Ohio, The Chagrin Valley Hunt Club is a historic private country club.

Founded over 100 years ago during the region’s booming industrial era, the Hunt Club’s history began on the banks of the Chagrin River in a rustic tavern that served as a meeting house for a handful of ardent fox hunting enthusiasts escaping the city bustle.

Now, the modern Chagrin Valley Hunt Club offers fine dining, event and meeting facilities, court and platform tennis, and a newly-renovated outdoor swimming pool on a lush 15 acre campus, which also includes the Chagrin Valley Hunt foxhound and beagles kennel and Chagrin Valley Stables horse boarding and riding facilities.


Club is open 6 days per week, 11 months per year.
