Detailed description of Farview Golf Course

Farview Golf Course is a Semi-Private , 18 hole golf course located in Avon , New York, just 20 minutes from downtown Rochester.

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.

Par for the course is 70. From the back tees the course plays to 6,326 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,056 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 11, a par-5 that plays to 528 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 8, a par-3 that plays to 154 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 12, a 234 yard par-3 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Farview is # 8, the 154 yard par-3.

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.
