Client Course Description

Fairview Country Club was founded in 1904. After several moves, the club hired Robert Trent Jones, Sr. to design its current course in Greenwich CT. Fairview’s two nines offer a marked contrast to each other. To score well on the relatively short front nine, one must avoid water which is very much in play on five of the first seven holes. Then the golfer must rely on length and accuracy to score well on the longer back nine. Fairview hosted two major MGA Championships: The 1930 Met Open and the 1959 Met Amateur.

Designer Notes

Fairview Country Club is an original Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design (1968). Our Remodeling Master Plan maintains the original RTJ design intent and style, while updating and upgrading the course to meet today’s playability and maintenance standards. In October 2019, we began a comprehensive bunker renovation program, including the elimination of some existing bunkers and the addition of several new ones. Work also includes the installation of significant drainage infrastructure.
