Greens were terrific, but...

Very Slow play for a Thursday morning. 5.5 hour round. If the 4some in front of use took less than a 7 on any hole I'd be shocked. Saw Ranger on course, did nothing to move them along. Staff, per usual, a bit pretentious and focus highly on leagues and regulars and their needs. I was reminded why I don't play there all that often.

Blown Away

My First time at Triggs and I was blown away. First off the Layout is amazing and at 6500 yards is all the golf course even 1 handicap player wants. 6 par 4's over 4 hundred yards. It's classic Donald Ross for sure. And second the condition of the course blew me away. The greens were almost perfect. I love this place and can't wait to go back. An absolute gem, and one of the best if not the best muni in New England.

On my list of favorite courses

The Triggs Memorial course is a Donald Ross design, city owned golf course. The layout is exceptional. The price is reasonable. Recent improvements to the course and facilities have made it an even better bargain. I enjoyed using the driving range to warm up. The pro shop was well staffed and helpful. The staff was friendly and outgoing. Their uniform polo shirts gave a professional touch. The club house staff was helpful in refilling my water bottle. My only suggestions are to add restrooms to the Pro Shop area ( currently golfers are required to walk to the club house) and add filtered water refill stations to the Pro Shop area and on both sides of the course. My group had an enjoyable day. We’ll be back again!

The Slow Course

Not much to say... nice layout, decent greens, but overall this place has gone down hill. It's now a great place for beginners, or the elderly. Not a place for serious golfers. There's a putting green but it has no slope, as opposed to the course which has huge ones. There's a range, but no net to the parking lot, so cars get hit... also cars get hit by the local criminals... so don't leave any valuables. Several of the traps are full of rocks so you can't hit from them or you'll wreck your clubs. Triggs is no longer a serious golf course.

Cool layout, tough course, worth $50 not $70 plus

Good fairways, CRAZY THICK ROUGH. Like maybe you find your ball maybe ya don’t. Enjoyed the challenge of NEEDING to hit fairways. Greens are big, undulating and fast with plenty people not fixing divots.so gotta plan to fix them yourself

Triggs Memorial

I live in the Los Angeles area in California. I was visiting Rhode Island and wanted to play a round of golf. I found this course on Golf Now and based on the ratings it already received...I chose it. Pleasantly surprised how nicely maintained the course played along with all the mature trees. Bunkers came into play and the greens were running true. The course is worth playing if you're second guessing where to play.

The course was really nice and the pace of play would have been better had I not been paired up with a 2-some that was only going to play 9 holes...who paid for 9 holes. That made my back 9 go by super slow being that there were several 4-somes in front and I could not play through.

New England in early spring can be tough

The day was cold and VERY windy. This is a very good layout, but the weather and the aerated greens was tough. The aeration holes are huge and it does not look like they use sand on them, so very bumpy to say the least. All of that said, I look forward to playing Triggs again in a month or so.

The Pro Shop/Ranger guy is rude and aggresive, refuses to listen.

I went just a couple of days ago, and we had 6 people total, i booked a 4some tee time, and 2 in another. HOWEVER, only 4 of us were actually playing, the other 2 were my Fiance and another guys wife and did not play a single hole. We got through 7 holes before me and the others that were playing were on the green, when the ranger, who was also the man in the "Pro Shop" rolled up to the two girls in the cart. And starting being aggressive for no reason stating that they must have stolen a cart, how did they get it, theres no way they paid and that they shouldnt even be here. I walked over and started talking to him when he clearly wasn't leaving. I tried to explain to him that we had paid for 6, which is why there are 3 carts, but only 4 of us are playing and that the other two were just riding along. He refused to listen and just kept being rude and stating we either had to split up or leave because we were slowing down pace. Which i also said was not true, we had to wait on the tee multiple times for the group ahead of us, and the 2some that mysteriously turned into a 4some behind us midway also never caught up to us. We clearly only had 4 golf bags for the 4 of us that were playing, but he said he had never heard of people being aloud on the course to just hang out and ride along which is also not true. Will never be back, there are plenty of other good courses to check out in the area. Only gave it a 2 star instead of 1 since he was "nice" enough to give us a refund. He couldve just come up and talked to us normally and everything would have been perfectly fine, we couldve just had the 2 girls leave and go do something else. but the way he started off accusing people and being rude was just ridiculous.

Nothing remarkable

The staff was nice and friendly. That’s about it. The course was meh. Way too many blind shots especially if you don’t know the course. Again, nothing terrible, just not very great, that’s all
