Fairview Country Club had a Donald Ross-designed layout in play until the development of the Interstate 287 highway in the late 1960s resulted in the club relocating, with Robert Trent Jones Sr. fashioning a new course for the members.
The club appointed Rees Jones to devise a masterplan for the club in 2010 and this resulted in quite a few course improvements over the following decade, beginning right at the outset with the replacement of the old irrigation system.
The next major issue was addressing the mix of bunker styles that had developed down the years. The aims of the bunker project were to restore the original look and feel of the bunkers using modern techniques and, where necessary, re-locate them.
Some of the traps (including all of the pot bunkers) were removed while others were shifted closer to either the green or the fairway on different holes. All of the sand hazards were rebuilt with Better Billy Bunker liners to enhance drainage and playability.
