The course at Rhode Island Country Club is a combination of parkland, wooded and seaside holes, with the final four holes located on beautiful Narragansett Bay. This is a seaside course which offers great views, but the prevailing winds are always a factor. The greens are fairly small, undulating and protected by numerous sand bunkers.

Watch out for # 7, a 464 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 17, a 139 yard par-3.

I grew up caddying on this Donald Ross gem fifty years ago and it hasn't lost any of it's charm. If you want to experience small, good greens, no collection areas, a wonderful walk and a fantastic view of Narragansett Bay - then come here. It's worth making a call to the pro shop to see if there is a way to get you on, especially if you are from out of town. Good luck.
