The original 9-hole course was sold in 1935 and is now the Fairwinds subdivision. The club had previously purchased Tri-Brook Farm, containing 96 acres, in 1930. A 9 green, 18 tee golf course was constructed and used until 1969. In 1966, sixty more acres were acquired. The old course was plowed in order to construct the 18-hole course known as the Jewel of the Valley.
The concept of golf architects Ellis Maples and Ed Seay realized the vision of the membership. The clubhouse was then built in 1954. Between then and now, the club has continued to expand and improve the facilities and grounds for the enjoyment of our members and guests. Today, Lexington features an 18-hole golf course known as the Jewel of the Valley, four tennis courts, a shortgame facility, a junior Olympic swimming pool, and a restaurant. An elegant event venue dominates the upper floor of the club house and is often host to weddings and large gatherings.
With walls of windows exposing panoramic vistas of the Blue Ridge Mountains, The View creates the ideal atmosphere for special occasions and functions, such as a romantic Valentine’s Dinner, our annual Mother’s Day Brunch, Prime Rib and Crab Legs Dinner, First Wednesday Dinners, a wedding reception or corporate gathering. Continually ranked as the Best Sunday Brunch in southern Virginia, The View provides an elegant and ideal space for your family and guests.
