Tomorrow Night
Mount Vernon Canyon Club - Golden ColoradoThe Mount Vernon Country Club is celebrating their 94th anniversary with a re-branding: hereafter, they will be known as the Mount Vernon Canyon Club.  They invite you to join them tomorrow night from 4-7PM for their 94th Birthday Bash. A $0.94 menu will include draft beer, house wine, and appetizers. Tours of the club will be available for prospective members.

Named for its proximity to Mount Vernon Canyon, MVCC opened in 1923 and is one of the oldest private clubs in the Denver area. With an eco-friendly horse pasture, instead of a golf course, and activities such as running and biking clubs for members, MVCC has long established itself as distinctly Colorado and continues to break the mold as it nears almost a century of service to the Denver area.
