Agawam Hunt Club’s golf course has changed quite a bit since Willie Park Junior pegged out a 9-holer for the members in 1895. The club’s first comprehensive 18-hole course was laid out by Donald Ross in 1920 over the top of Metacomet’s original Rumford layout.
Agawam had to give up some land to the City of East Providence in the early 1960s, resulting in the loss of three holes. To counter this, the club acquired some additional ground and sought the services of Geoff Cornish to redesign several holes and fashion new 7th and 15th holes.
At the start of the new millennium, Gil Hanse was brought in to develop a master plan ‘aimed at restoring the course to its Donald Ross roots’ though his design firm never actually carried out any work. Since 2018, Ian Andrew has been consulting at the club.
Today’s layout extends to a modest 5,959 yards on a rather constricted property that extends to no more than ninety acres. Holes 8 to 14 are actually laid out on a separate paddock, to the south of Ten Mile River, with #7 and #15 linking these seven holes to the rest of the course.
