Farview Golf Course first opened for play in 1992. During the building of the golf course, a nearly complete skeleton of a Mastodon was unearthed. This is one of the most complete skeletons ever found in the United States. The skeleton was discovered on the pond side of the 18th green in 1991. The remains are currently on display at the Rochester Museum and Science Center.

Farview provides two distinct 9 hole sides, each providing a unique experience. The front 9 is more traditional, while the back 9 is more target oriented and boasts some of the highest elevations in the county with many spectacular views. The fairways are narrow, and the large greens are multi-tiered. Water hazards (lakes) come into play on five holes.

Very friendly staff. Relatively short course, but has many challenges. #10 is particularly chalanging.
