Premium price crap management
So first the good: Donald Ross design with superb greens. Well maintained
The bad: we where told they didn’t have a range
The ugly and unacceptable: they do have a range but it’s the 11th fairway!!!!!! They also let a single (assuming member) walking (with his non playing wife) out at 8:20 on a busy Friday Nice 5 hour stroll!!! No ranger. Didn’t answer club house phone.
Absolutely not acceptable for the $75 dollars a round. RI has waaaay to many excellent courses for this nonsense
Solid and about to get better
Metacomet is one of several historic courses that make Rhode Island one of America's strongest pound-for-pound golf states. A Donald Ross design like better-known Wannamoisett, Warwick and R.I.C.C., it gets off to an incredibly strong start, with seven stirring opening holes that require all a golfer's shots and nerve.
The rest of the course doesn't quite rise to the standard set by the opening stretch, but nevertheless it is the type of course you'd feel lucky to play every day. With a superb and tough set of greens, it is no wonder that club favorite son Brad Faxon turned out to be a legendary putter. Faxon has recently bought the club with several investors and plans to see it restored to its former glory as a haven of great golfers and one of Providence's jewels. The club currently takes select outside play; non-members should take advantage while it's still feasible.
