Rhode Island’s courses offer lots of variety for golfers

The 36 towns of this small state are home to five dozen golf courses, so the numbers alone show that golfers are a respected breed of sportsmen in Rhode Island. The Newport Country Club is one of the five founding clubs of what is today known as the United States Golf Association, demonstrating that respect for the sport in Rhode Island reaches back well over 100 years. The gently rolling countryside of Rhode Island make a natural setting for the sport, and, as in Scotland, the country of golf’s birth, water views from golf courses are not uncommon.

This championship golf course, carved into the New England environment, really is a natural

It’s not an exaggeration to say that golf is a natural for The Reserve Club and Residences: The Championship Mountain Course has literally been carved out of the natural environment, resulting in a course that challenges your skills, engages your mind and provides the perfect picturesque background. Designed by award-winning golf architect Robert McNeil and the Northeast Golf Company, the 18-hole, par-3 course and its hybrid cross-country par-34 configuration are two of the Northeast’s most challenging yet playable executive courses, garnering the American Association of Golf Architects’ Design Excellence Award in 2015. Golfers can play at their own pace, restarting at their leisure. The Preserve’s Sporting Shoppe has a large selection of the industry’s best brands of clubs and other equipment.
