On land that was once a part of Charles Carroll's Doughoregan Manor, Sam Pistorio owned and operated a thoroughbred horse farm. In 1960, a clubhouse was built and opened as Turf Valley Country Club. Nick and Mary Mangione purchased the property in 1978 and transformed it into the stunning resort destination it is today. Championship golf has always been Turf Valley' Resort's anchor in the community, and the property was enhanced with a first class hotel and restaurant in 1988. The Spa at Turf Valley Resort was introduced in 1997 and added relaxation treatments and massage to the growing list of amenities.
