Fairways are wide, forgiving and firm. Well trimmed and remarkably dry considering the amount of rain in the summer weather pattern this year. Their drainage is better than any other course I've played making contact with the ball possible without getting a face full of mud. Greens are well groomed and somewhat soft rolling at about a 9 or 10. The back 9 is a wonderful walking opportunity with short stoles from green to next tee; front 9 has some long walks between greens and next tee. I don't walk because of my knee, but I look forward to the day I can. The only negative I can mention is the driving/practice facilities are small and incomplete (no bunker or pitching practice facilities)

This was certainly not my first time playing at The Providence Club, however it was my first time playing there on a weekend morning which I most likely will not do again anytime soon. Upon pulling up to the first tee we realized there was no starter on duty and the tee times had already fallen at only 8:45AM. Once we finally got out on to the course things picked up for a while until about hole 5, then it was relatively slow for the rest of the round. One issue which probably caused the slow play was the course being cart path only, though most of the holes were fine for carts to travel on the grass (some wet areas could have been simply staked off). We also only saw a ranger once during the entire round; if they had a ranger continuously traveling the course, I think that would've alleviated some of the pace issues.

Now on to the course itself. The greens at Providence were ok, but left a bit to be desired. They rolled fast but tended to bounce a lot, and they looked very thin in some areas. The fairways and rough were in excellent shape with tall pine trees lining many of the fairways. Some of the bunkers had a bit of wash out, but with the rain in the earlier weeks, that is to be expected.

All in all, Providence is a very enjoyable course to play during the week when the course is not packed. With a little more attention to pace of play, it would be a great weekend stop for the causal golfer.

There is a noticeable improvement in this course. The personnel were exceptionally nice, the course was in great shape (especially considering recent weather) and several subtle improvements on the course. We played with a couple of out-of-town friends. They were impressed and plan to play here when they return. Price was exceptional through GolfNow offer!

I have played here frequently in the past and will eventually return but not until the greens and fringe around the greens are back. The fringe is essentially just dirt and the greens were so covered in sand. I understand punching and rolling is an annual event but this was unknown and should be advertised.

Pace of play 4 hours, F&B as always great, $$ for the round no issue there. In the end putting surfaces will make or break a golf course there are too many places around to play.

Maybe try Providence again in late June this feels like 4-6 weeks to get those areas back in playing shape.

Played this course several times but first time since summer last year. They have completely lost the greens and they are in horrible shape for this course. They should have a warning for sure that the greens won’t be back for quite a while if at all this year. Mostly sand around the greens and can’t hit a reliable putt unfortunately. The rest of the course is really nice as usual but the greens ruined it for me this season here.
