Fun course with some interesting holes

This is a fun local course in NK. It’s pretty forgiving and short 6100 approximately from the tips, well maintained, and has some well placed sand traps that make you think twice on your approach shots. The greens were pretty good had been aerated somewhat recently but have healed and ran true though didn’t play that much break except for a few holes. The back 9 has some fun holes that are somewhat blind and brings a little water into play with a nice view of Narragansett bay in the background. My only complaint would be that it was very slow. It was a 1:30pm Sunday afternoon beautiful fall day and people were going very slow. For the amount of people on the course I would have thought we’d finish in a under 4 hours but it took us 4.5 to finish 18 with lots of waiting in the tee box. Otherwise great course, not too demanding but I would play there again & hope to score better :)

Used cart

Left After Nine Holes

Pace of play was horrible. Started about 15 minutes later than scheduled tee time. After the first hole we waited for the next group to tee off on hole number two, after the second hole there were two groups waiting to tee off on the next hole which is a par three. Called the pro shop in hopes a ranger could be sent out to pick up pace but even though someone did ride out it didn't change. There was a wait on every hole which resulted in taking almost three hours to play nine holes after which I left.
I was chatting with the groups ahead of us and were told they were lifelong residents of North Kingston and stopped playing the course for a couple years because of pace of play being so slow. Sounds like things have not changed there.....a ranger is desperately needed at this course to regulate pace of play.

Awesome groundskeeping

Weather was as good as it gets. Course was in incredible shape. Even after rain the previous night, the course was fairly well drained and manageable. Starter was very friendly (great people person), and we went off about 10-min before our start time. Just one of those rounds we’re the golf Gods kept giving you a thumbs up!

Slow Play ruined the round

The back nine pace slowed down to a crawl. There was a foursome in front of us that had three holes open ahead of them. People behind us called the clubhouse and so did I. The ranger finally came out when they were on the 16th hole but it did not help because when we got to the 18th there were two full groups on the tee waiting for the slow group to putt out. A 3 hour back nine.

Course is always great. Would’ve been nice if a marshal was out to speed the pace up.

Great to back

Worcester Tuesday Golf Group here played North Kingstown 7-31. After a bad experience last year some of our players didn't want to go back, well we're glad we did. let's start with the staff couldn't have been more friendly from the phone call that we placed to get the tee time to when we all showed up excellent excellent. A clubs were picked up in a professional manner in the parking lot, behind the desk when we paid everything was great the course conditions were excellent. When we were all done the most frequent request from the players is can you see if we can come back instead of waiting a whole year. The service in the restaurant after was excellent from Shelly and Donna service with a smile and efficient. John and Brian turn this whole situation 180 degrees around from last year what a Time.

Great Value for Public Course

One of best public courses in Rhode Island. Conditions are consistent around course and greens are usually in great shape. Best time of year to play course is late fall (Sept to Oct). Great deals weekend twilight rates (especially town residents). Layout is solid with great views of Narragansett Bay on back 9. Blue Tees play 6,200, but there are several tough holes that play long (#2, #7, #8, #11). Some fun shorter par 4 holes (#9 and #17). Grass practice range with practice bunker is a plus. Overall great value.

Best Muni in the Area

This course has enough challenge to it if you play from the Blue tees. The rough is in good shape but this courses best attribute is the Greens. They are the fastest greens for a public course, They roll true. Challenge on the back side is the wind off the bay. By the way this area is also the most scenic. Great views of the Bay. Since course is next to the Quonset airfield you must play during the yearly Air Show. Planes fly right over your head.

Much Improoved

Solid layout. In great shape. Even the few greens they have had problems with in the past are superb right now. Tree removal program has helped . Fat Belly's Pub a great addition!

Greens in bad shape

Greens are brown and have dirt patches. Just aerated so they are bumpy and slow as well.

Good course for the price paid.

My group sailed through the front 9 in about 2 hours. Play slowed a bit on the back when we caught up with a small outing that had been sent out the back 9. Course was in ok condition. Greens were thin and some fairways had water damage.

Not a great value

Greens were in bad shape. Cart paths were in poor shape. Several fairways were soggy, apparently due to poor drainage.

Was not worth the greens fee. Tees and greens were not good.

Disappointed with condition of the course. Tee to greens were deplorable. Not worth the travel or the rate.
