“ Today after just over a month of being a member and having already played in the Member-Guest Tournament in June, I can only echo what my guest said: ‘Paul, this club is true class.’ I hope joining Farmington becomes the first step in my eventual relocation to Charlottesville and me becoming a Resident member, but in the meantime I plan to visit it as I often as I can. ”

“Once again we experienced a wonderful three-day stay and golf tournament. Farmington is a true ‘experience’ and after almost 25 years, we still enjoy our visits so much. So many improvements over the years—the place gets better and better. I have never seen nicer and more personable staff!”

“After staying at Farmington, we decided the time was right for us to join. Margaret and I both enjoy golf and find your course challenging and beautiful. You have a wonderful fitness facility that we look forward to using in our constant endeavor to stay healthy. Last but not least, Margaret and I love to eat out and know we will frequent Farmington’s restaurants.”
