Jamestown Golf Course is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Jamestown, Rhode Island, just minutes from Newport.
Jamestown Golf Course traces its roots to 1895. Many claim that it is one of the oldest public course in the country.
A nine-hole golf course had been established in a cow pasture near the Dumplings in July 1895, and was in use until about October 1904. In 1901 a new clubhouse was erected on the south side of the course and links were laid out on the Littlefield-Clarke farm, today's Jamestown Country Club. The clubhouse was moved in 1951 to its present location on Conanicus Avenue. The course contains 74.36 acres, with various environmentally sensitive land management areas.
This inviting Links style course is located within site of Narragansett Bay. Rolling fairways and generous driving areas make for a relaxing round. The greens will test your ability to read greens and putt at every hole.
The layout has a nice mixture of easy and difficult holes. Two of the par 4s are easy at 300 yards and under from the back tees. Two more par 4s are much more difficult at over 400 yards. One par 5 is a tough, 541 yarder with a deceptively sloping green. The course measures 3,058 in total from the back tees.
Blue Tees: par 36, 3,058 yards.
White Tees: par 36, 2,761 yards.
Red Tees: par 38, 2,431 yards.
