Self-described as “a golf experience that will keep you coming back for more,” Meadow Brook is a hidden gem in Southern New England. Its impeccable golf course and unpretentious layout are some of its most defining features and secure its place as one of the best greens near Narragansett.

The longest hole, #15, plays over 600 yards from the back tees and 500 from the front. No two courses are alike with expansive fairway corridors and five sets of tees. Golfers will need to use every club in their bag!

The course designers put just as much thought into the design of the Clubhouse, which is a cozy space for breakfast, lunch, or a celebratory drink. It’s the perfect place to unwind after a victory game!
