Fairview Country club is a private country club with an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr.  There are also 12 tennis courts, 3 paddle courts, a swimming pool complex, and a practice range.  The large clubhouse also includes a hotel for members and their guests. The Club completed an irrigation installation in 2012 and is preparing to begin implementing a Master Plan with Rees Jones in the fall of 2019, starting with Better Billy Bunkers; rounds per year 10,000; annual maintenance budget $2,200,000.
