Good News and Bad News…
Shortly after finishing my tournament round on this amazing course, I found out that the course is closing at the end of October. That is the bad news. The good news is that you still have time to play it. Here is a link for tee times FARMSTEAD TEE TIMES.
Why Should You Play Farmstead?
True to its name, Farmstead Golf Links gives players the feeling of playing golf “down on the farm,” (which you know us horse people love). The course occupies property that used to be farmland for a prominent local family, the McLambs. In 2001, the golf course, designed by Willard Byrd and Dave Johnson, emerged from the landscape and has been a delight to its loyal local players and thousands of annual visitors ever since. With sprawling fairways, well-placed bunkers, and undulating greens, the course has an open feel, with wind affecting play most every day. We had to club up 2 clubs on the back 9. As much as I love houses, I so enjoyed not seeing one house the whole day. (The bad news about the lack of houses will come as you read on).
