Farmingbury Hills comes about as close to a full 18-hole layout as any 9-hole course can. The fourth hole—number 13 on the back side—has two separate tee boxes though they share the same green, while number 5/14 has two completely different greens. The finishing hole on either side, numbers 9 and 18, even have two different pars: it's a par 5 the second time around, a par 4 the first, and a par 3 if you can bend the laws of natural numbers. This adaptability has been a hallmark of the course since it was opened in the 1920s, when it was a private course for the managers of the Chase Brass and Copper Company. Today golfers of any stripe can spin around the 9-hole loop as many times as they like, taking care to note the former trolley line on the 5th tee and the remains of an old brick house near the 14th green.
