Great course especially for the money.

The course was in great shape. We played 9 with a cart and paid $30. I’ll definitely be back.

Good Public Course!!

I’m glad I didn’t follow the prior reviews!
I was told when I checked in that this course was sold recently and being updated and it appears they are working very hard to do this!!
I only played 9 holes and it was easy to walk! I hope others give this course a chance!

1922 Classic

100 year old Donald Ross classic rolling through the hills in Westerly down to the salt marsh. Not lush but still plays the way it was built in 1922. Worth the trip for glimpse back in time.

Below standard

Pace was 5 hours due to no ranger pushing the bad golfers hitting 3-4 balls a hole. Course was in dis-repair on many holes. Fairways were overgrown. Greens were bumpy and needed to be cut. At $50 with cart, not worth the bad clientele or long round. I played this course many times, and have never seen it this bad. I won’t be back.

Very slow 5.5 hour round. Not a bad first few holes, but back up on 3 all the way through 18. Behind very slow groups. Marshall did nothing.

Great Sunday Round

Teed off at 8, finished at 1130- greens were as good as anywhere I have played this year- tee boxes were a bit unlevel in spots- course played beautifully.

Lots of Potential

This was our first time playing here and wanted to give it a try before the renovations and improvements happen, we liked it enough to go back the next week and play it again in better weather. We understand there is new ownership and course management and are hopeful that the course will improve. That said, the newly refurbished greens were magnificent, and I understand that the new course superintendent decided to concentrate on the greens first--and glad that he did--like putting on velvet! The rest of the course was a bit rough around the edges, but definitely playable and we are looking forward to the transition over the next year--if the rebuilt greens are any example of the quality of this new superintendent, then this is a course that Donald Ross would be proud of again, in time! A few quick suggestions, that I'm hopeful are on the to-do list:
1. Replace the porta potties with a higher quality model, the one I used was scary! Better yet add a full service bathroom somewhere between 9th and 10th holes (to avoid having to double back to the clubhouse).
2. Even though the restaurant was closed, the patio could have been better maintained, we would've liked to have stayed for a chat and beers but many of the chairs were overturned, the tables were not clean, and there was a lot of debris on the patio floor. We didn't have a beverage cart the Sunday or Friday we played, if that continues, they should encourage a BYOB policy until that service is available again.
3. The ladies’ restroom and pro shop could use some extra attention to cleanliness and some renovations, both were a bit shabby. Women will like this course, it plays well to our handicaps, but the amenities are lacking feminine appeal. IMO.
4. Better markings for yardage/distance from holes, I was always guessing—I haven’t adjusted to GPS yet.
5. Maybe consider (someday) reversing the order of the holes so the ocean holes are on the front nine, that way nine-hole players will have a chance to play the ocean holes—as it is now if you can play just 9 holes, you will miss those holes if only allowed to play the front 9.
6. A practice driving range of any size would be nice to warm up, it doesn’t need to be extensive.
We will be back to play again and monitor the progress of improvements to the tee boxes, fairways, traps and cart paths--all are fixable with an experienced superintendent and enough staff to make it all come together!

We wish you much luck and good fortune with this course, it's begging for better care and attention!

Only played front nine so can't comment on 10-18. Greens were immaculate. Some of the best all year. Tee boxes not so much and fairways were just so-so. Lot of elevation and some blind spot shots made it more interesting. Will come back and hope to play a full round. Money value rating based on Hot Deal and Golf Now credits but it look to be pretty competitive with other courses in the area.
