Wannamoisett Country Club

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1898

Wannamoisett Country Club is home to a championship golf course that ranks with some of the best in the Northeast. Located across the Seekonk River from Providence, Rhode Island, this tree-lined and open parkland Donald Ross layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game.

Impeccably conditioned, with 18 subtle, undulating greens, this relatively compact and wonderfully crafted layout will challenge amateurs and professionals alike. Water doesn't play too big a part in proceedings, but a plethora of stylish fairway and greenside bunkering frequently lies in wait. No surprise that Wannamoisett is widely considered to be among Ross's finest layouts.

Limited access: this is a private course generally playable only by members and their invited guests.

List of courses: Boston / Cape Cod / R.I.

Did you know?

Wannamoisett Country Club has played host to many national and international tournaments. Every year it hosts the prestigious Northeast Amateur Invitational, and in 1931 staged the 14th US PGA Championship (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Wannamoisett).

The name Wannamoisett most likely comes from the Algonquian Native American language, and means "at the good fishing place". Wannamoisett was a neck of land that includes today's city of East Providence and the town of Barrington. It was sold by the Algonquian-speaking Pokanoket Tribe to settler John Browne in 1645. At the time the Pokanokets inhabited parts of Rhode Island and much of southeast Massachusetts.
