The Farms Country Club is home to one of the finest courses in Connecticut. Once a dairy farm, our golf course provides both challenging play and pastoral views. Designed by Geoffrey Cornish in 1960, our par 72, 6810 championship course provides a tremendous experience for all levels of play. The Farms has hosted many local, regional and national tournaments such as the 1998 U.S. Open Regional Qualifier, and the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur Regional Qualifier.
Today you can enjoy the rolling fairways, manicured greens and a professional staff that takes pride in our reputation for providing exceptional, personalized service for outings and tournaments of all sizes.
