A Classic Comeback

Winnapaug is worth a trip now and hopefully in the future. This Donald Ross course has excellent greens but the rest is still shaggy. The question is are the owners putting the $ back into the course? Any course by the shore in RI beach turf charge a good sum in the summer. The competition in the area for your dollar is now steeper than ever. Winnapaug must improve the tees and fairways to compete. Way too many bare spots on the fairways. The greens are tiny and you can see that over time they have gotten smaller as the distance between greens and supposed greenside bunkers has increased. Ross laidout a fine tract and the fact you get to see the water on holes 10-13 is still a treat. Please give the greenskeeper and staff the funds they need to keep bringing it back!

A Hidden Classic

This course is being brought back from some years of lacking care. A lesser course would probably have gotten 3 stars, but this is a great layout and the greens were beautiful. The rest is coming along. On a nice morning, playing a Ross design on the ocean is about as good as it gets for me. Nice folks, too!

labor day weekend gem

Was driving home to New Jersey and used golfnow.com to find course on way home. Great find. Turns out I played a Donald Ross course, Triggs Memorial in Providence, RI, the previous day. Pefect day. Fairways could use some water but greens in great shape. Good old rustic, New England course. Hole #12 overlooking water was very cool! Look forward to playing this Fall!

Typical Ross, fun and challenging.

A great Donald Ross design. Amazing views of the ocean. Tricky greens that can be small at times. Challenging holes like 14 and 18 but playable. It is just a shame to see a Ross course in poor condition like this one. Fairways need water, many bare spots.
