Fairway Village Golf Course is a public course owned and managed by the Fairway Village Homeowner’s Association. The course was laid out in 1983 as the foundation for the new Fairway Village Golf & Country Club residential development. It was dedicated June 1985 by professional golfer Sam Snead, who played a ceremonial opening round with a group of local pros and amateurs. It was reported that Snead proclaimed hole #7 was as fine a par 4 has he had played.
COURSE DESIGNER – BUNNY MASON
Noted Pacific Northwest course designer and PGA pro Gene “Bunny” Mason was the architect of the course. Mason designed some 20 courses in the northwest including Persimmon Country Club, Awbrey Glen Golf Club, Eagle Crest Golf Resort, Crooked River Ranch Golf Club, Skamania Lodge, and Black Butte Ranch. Mason’s design incorporates tree lined fairways highlighted by a mix of sand traps and water. Green approaches allow for bump and run shots while penalizing those that overshoot. Green layouts employ subtle breaks with defined back to front slopes.
