NEW ENGLAND GOLF GUIDE
Meadow Brook | Richmond, RI
Rhode Island's Newest Sensation.
Located 2 miles off Interstate 95 on Route 138, Meadow Brook is only 30 minutes from Providence, the beaches and the casinos. When you first notice the course from the road, you immediately know you are in for a treat. Originally opened in 1929, Meadow Brook was purchased by the Hendrick family in 2006, owners of Exeter Country Club and Richmond Country Club, two excellent facilities in Rhode Island. The course has been completely renovated and redeveloped under the watchful eye of Rulewich and Fleury Golf Design, noted worldwide course designers, and will open in the spring of 2010. Those who have played the course before won't recognize it. What used to be a short, flat course has become a spectacular championship course with rolling fairways and many elevation changes.
Spread over 225 acres of picturesque land, this Par 72 course will stretch to over 7,400 yards from the back tees and will be the longest public golf course in Rhode Island. With large greens, beautifully sculptured sand traps and strategically placed water, Meadow Brook is not only challenging but quite beautiful. However, don't let the beauty of the course lull you into complacency - the course demands your full attention throughout all 18 holes. On the other hand, with 5 sets of tees and no forced carries Meadow Brook is playable for golfers of all levels.
No two holes are alike at Meadow Brook providing you with an interesting and well designed layout. The signature hole is # 10, a fantastic par 3 over water that stretches to 202 yards. Standing on the elevated tee, surrounded by natural rock formations provides you with one of the most scenic views on the course.
The beautiful new clubhouse with a brick covered patio overlooks the course, has a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch and a full bar. Once up and running, Meadow Brook will offer a fabulous venue for your tournaments and outings.
Put Meadow Brook on your must play list for 2010.
