Dubbed Medicine Hat’s most scenic restaurant, The Clubhouse at Paradise Valley is locally owned and supports local as much as possible. With a roster of passionate chefs, the menu provides an excellent array of favourites combined with innovative new dishes.
General Manager Kim Bronson highlighted some of the local farmers and producers they work with such as Premium Sausage who they use year-round, local greenhouses (seasonally), and they even grow some of their own herbs and rhubarb – Yum! As for local breweries and distilleries, they work closely with Medicine Hat Brewing Company and Grit City – which opened up in 2018 and has become a Medicine Hat hotspot.
The restaurant has held its own as one of the top five restaurants in Medicine Hat of which they’re incredibly proud, including recent wins at the Best of Medicine Hat contest at the end of March in their 5 categories: #1 Casual Dining Restaurant, #1 Events, #2 Best patio, #2 Fine Dining Restaurant, and #2 Golf Course!
“Being that it’s on the golf course, we love to participate in events like Savour The Southeast and Alberta On The Plate to get our name out there and remind people that we aren’t just a golf course.” says Bronson.
The Clubhouse at Paradise Valley hosts holiday brunches, live music (when COVID-19 restrictions allow) and rumor has it they also serve the best fish and chips in town on Fridays.
Chef Amber Ternes’ kitchen career started 15 years ago, as a dishwasher at a hotel in her home town of Turner Valley, Alberta. Before graduating high school in 2008, she was promoted to Kitchen Manager. Shortly after graduation, Chef Ternes started her apprenticeship under a classically-trained French Chef in a small fine dining smokehouse that once was a ranch house built in 1895. She really loved it there and ended up managing the restaurant until it closed.
In 2010, Chef Ternes helped manage a small family-run restaurant until moving to Medicine Hat in 2013. She started at Paradise Valley Golf Course shortly after the move and has made it her home away from home. During her employment at Paradise Valley, she has gotten married, had a daughter and challenged her red seal exam.
