If you’re looking for a place to host your next event in the greater Mercer County region, look no further than Hopewell Valley Golf & Country Club. Offering the Hopewell Ballroom, the Baron Dillon Grille and the golf course Pavilion, Hopewell Valley is the go-to for events of all types.

Donna Weaver, director of marketing at Spirit Golf Management, says that it’s Hopewell Valley’s ambiance, vista and sense of comfort and tranquility that set it apart from other clubs in the area. She also makes sure to note that there are no housing developments around the golf course, another thing that makes Hopewell Valley unique.

Hopewell Valley offers complete turnkey event services, including full A/V on premise in the clubhouse for the Hopewell Ballroom and Baron Dillon Grille and full on-site catering.

The Hopewell Ballroom holds 100 comfortably for a seated reception with dance floor. It can accommodate 368 for a standing cocktail event/meet and greet reception, 262 for a theater-style meeting and 122 for seated classroom style or with round tables. The Baron Dillon Grille is a restaurant open to the public. It holds about 60 inside and another 50 when weather permits seating on the outside covered deck.

For those interested in the golf, Hopewell Valley’s 18-hole par-72 championship golf course is now open to the public to play up to five times a year before membership.  

Retreats and off-site meetings present wonderful opportunities for groups to collaborate, strategize and build relationships away from their normal office environments. With proper planning, these sessions can be highly effective and even pivotal in setting a new direction. However, off-sites may present some unforeseen challenges that can quickly deflate the energy in the room if not anticipated and addressed in advance.

 

Who says you can’t have a meeting without some pampering mixed in? Several hot springs resorts in the U.S. Mountain West can accommodate smaller meetings complete with lodging, function space, din- ing and soaking. Some even have on-site spas and other standout features like an ice museum or microbrewery to include on an itinerary.

 

Erase any vision you might have of a dude ranch, especially the “City Slicker” version. For the purposes of this story, let’s use the name ranch resort and picture a big dose of vision and thousands of acres for both herds and people to roam. It’s a fairly different option, but one with similar friendliness and the Western spirit of a dude ranch.
