Farmington Country Club Master Plan

Farmington Country Club Master Plan


Cooper Robertson is working with the Farmington Country Club to develop a master plan to guide short-term and long-term improvements to the campus until the year 2027, to commemorate the club’s hundredth anniversary.

The main house, or Clubhouse, is a large, impressive brick structure with white-pillared portico, emblematic of Colonial architecture of the region. The club has built additions and out buildings over the years to accommodate new functions—a Fitness Center, pool facilities, guest rooms, dining room, ballroom, gathering spaces, bar, and restaurant. With over thirty additions, the composition is confused and does not meet the Club’s ongoing needs.

Following an in-depth programming process focused on the three “Rs” of member recruitment, retention, and relevance, Cooper Robertson prioritized a list of future renovations and additions to meet the club’s current and future needs. The projects focused on addressing several key areas of concern, including the arrival experience, the front door, enhanced social gathering and dining spaces, improved sports facilities, expanded kitchen, clarified circulation and operations, expanded locker rooms, more guest rooms, and additional parking.

The team is currently developing concept design materials and cost estimates for each of the major projects to assist the Club’s fundraising efforts.
