Best Golf Courses Near Wakefield, Rhode Island
Spring has finally arrived here in Rhode Island (and we consider ourselves lucky that we were not in the line of the current system that pounded Wisconsin with a bunch of snow the other day). One of our favorite springtime activities—besides driving around in our new Volkswagen with the windows rolled down—is golfing. Rhode Island may be small, but it is home to some really big, beautiful, and challenging golf courses. Here are a few of our favorites near Wakefield, RI:
Location: 222 Rose Hill Road, Wakefield
Phone: (401) 788-1088
If you are looking for a fun and challenging round of golf, then we recommend checking out the Rose Hill Golf Club. There, you will enjoy 18 holes on a challenging Par 3 terrain level. The grounds are picturesque and teeming with wildlife (mostly birds, though probably not any dancing gophers). Patrons love the Rose Hill Golf Club not only for its golfing, but also for its friendly staff and community service/fundraising opportunities. Check out their Facebook page to learn more!
Beaver River Golf Club
Location: 343 Kingstown Road, Richmond

In addition to the course, there is a pro shop staffed with friendly and knowledgeable employees who are ready to outfit you in the best gear. For more information, check out their website!
