On August 9-10, The Farms Country Club will serve as the host of the Connecticut Mid-Amateur for the second time. The Farms last hosted the Mid-Amateur in 2011 when Ray Floyd, Jr. claimed the title. Up until 1959, the land that The Farms sits on today was a working farm. However, after the land went unused members of the neighboring communities of Wallingford, Meriden and Cheshire decided that a family club was needed, thus the Geoffrey Cornish design was opened in 1962.
Ben Conroy will look to defend his title on a course that rarely affords players a straight forward shot. Not overly, long with no par-4's over 400-yards, the course is defined by its many doglegs forcing players to be accurate off the tee and remain in position. The Farms sets up for an exciting finish, the 17th is a short par-4, while players will have a good opportunity for birdie on the par-5 closing hole.
