SPRING Spring kicks off our busy golf season, which includes tournaments such as the Kenridge, Virginia’s premier amateur invitational, as well as daily golf events and clinics. The sound of rackets hitting balls fills the air around the outdoor tennis courts as our members enjoy the sun and a little friendly competition. Cap off a good match by sharing lunch at the Grill restaurant. Our culinary team finds inspiration in the season’s fresh, local ingredients, and you’ll relish their creations while taking in the views from our outdoor patios.
In spring, our grounds manager offers frequent gardening workshops covering topics such as boxwood pruning and container planting. In conjunction with Garden Week, join us for a garden tour and luncheon, and take home some tips for your own garden.
When the first daffodils bloom around the Clubhouse, Farmington comes alive with social events and outdoor recreation.

No one does Fourth of July quite like Farmington, where it’s become the can’t-miss summer social event and a tradition for most member families. The day begins with one of America’s favorite pastimes, a golf tournament for the whole family. Celebrate our nation’s independence poolside with cocktails for the grown-ups and water games and races for the kids. Then we welcome everyone to the North Lawn for a cookout and dancing to live music before the best part of the day: snuggling up on picnic blankets to watch Charlottesville’s best fireworks show with an inspiring Blue Ridge backdrop. Summer camp is a well-loved tradition at Farmington that gets children outside and active learning new skills while making friendships that can last a lifetime. The weekly day camp includes lessons in tennis, golf and swimming, as well as camp games, arts and crafts and more.
“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.”
“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 the Farmington Grill and bar.”
“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!”
