Metacomet Country Club was founded in 1901 by local businessmen and built by Leonard Byles, Donald Ross was later hired in 1924 to redesign the course to its current standing. The name of the club came from the Chief of the Wampanoag Tribe - Metacomet a friend to the Pilgrim settlers in the 17th Century later renamed King Philip by the English after he succeeded his father as chief of the tribe. Metacomet Country Club sits on 105 acres of rolling terrain in East Providence. Metacomet Country Club is 6500 yds from the tips and plays to a par 70. It's may not seem like a long course but if your drives are wild here you are in for a long day. Your shots have to be accurate and precise, Metacomet will challenge the most skilled of players and regularly host top amateur events. The front nine is the easier of the two nines and includes the only two par 5's on the course. The back nine has two par 3's over 220 yds which play their distances and a couple of par 4's over 420 yds. There are also 5 holes at 350-360 yds giving everyone a chance at making a birdie or par. Overall the course was great and our group had a good time, its was nice to see a Donald Ross design in such fantastic shape.
