About Greensboro Country Club, Farm Course

Greensboro Country Club is a Private, 36-hole golf Facility located in Greensboro, North Carolina. Greensboro Country Club is a traditional private country club. The Club is owned by its members, governed by an elected Board of Directors and managed by a certified professional staff. Membership is by invitation only. The Club has two 18-hole golf course, The Irving Park Course and The Farm Course, previously known as The Maples Course .

Greensboro Country Club, The Farm Course opened for play in 1963. The course was designed by Ellis Maple and redesigned in 2009 by Donald Steel and Jonathan Gaunt.

Both the Irving Park Course and The Farm Course locations have their own very distinct charms.The Club offers its distinguished members the environment, facilities and services that satisfy their sports, social and business needs and interests.

Since its opening at the turn of the 20th Century, Greensboro Country Club has been the most prestigious golf institution in town, but its Carlson Farm course was never a source of great pride.

The suburban 1963 Ellis Maples design was intended to be a meaty, modern alternative to the club's shorter Donald Ross course at its downtown facility, but Carlson Farm failed to take advantage of its potential.

Forty years after the club acquired the course, Donald Steel did an extreme makeover. He transformed a tired 6,914-yard, par-71 layout into a 7,302-yard, par-72.

Greensboro Country Club, The Farm Course won the best rennovation course award in 2010.

The Greensboro Country Club golf course was originally built in 1965 by Ellis Maples and was renovated in 2009 by renowned European architect Doanld Steel. Golf Week Magazine rated the Farm course renovation the best U.S. renovation in 2010. The new Donald Steel layout is a very fair test of golf with six sets of tees that allows all levels of golfers the opportunity to test their skills. A must see if visiting the Greensboro area.
