ABOUT THE COURSE – Founded in 1892, the Country Club of Farmington was organized and incorporated on March 31, 1897 for "the encouragement of social life in the country and for the establishment and maintenance of a club house."
In 1895 a nine-hole course was laid out entirely east of Waterville Road and within a half dozen years it was replaced by a nine hole course designed by Arthur H. Fenn. Mr. Fenn's layout placed two greens west of Waterville Road and required a drive over the road.
Nearly twenty years later famed archtitect Devereux Emmet was contracted to design an eighteen hole course that ultimately opened for play in 1924. Over the decades many changes have been made but the course continues to reflect much of Mr. Emmet's design.
