The 6,675-yard, par-71 course has received a rating of 72.7 from the USGA, and is ranked among the top three courses in Rhode Island by Golf Digest.

Each hole presents a new look - all share a dedication to minimalist design with impeccable conditions. Exposure to a fly over of the biggest redtailed hawk one has ever seen, a spectacular panoramic view across Narragansett Bay from the 11th tee and the ultimate challenge and seaside splendor of the 18th!
