Welcome to The Country Club of Farmington

            The Country Club of Farmington is nestled in the center of Farmington, noted for it's historic beauty and colonial charm. The 18-hole Golf Course is our most treasured of amenities. The course was designed by Devereux Emmet and opened in 1892, one of the first 100 clubs in America. Our regulation length Championship course features 6,580 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. Despite the yardage, the course is very challenging for all skill levels, and protects par very well. The Country Club hosts many regional and state golf events, including The US Open Qualifier.
