Public 9-hole course opens to the public on Thursday, June 27

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Marshall Properties, joined by East Providence Mayor Bob DaSilva, Senator Robert Britto, East Providence Councilman Rick Lawson, community leaders and golf enthusiasts cut the ribbon this morning on the highly-anticipated public golf course Met Links. The event marked the transformation of the former Metacomet Country Club into a par-34, nine-hole course that will now be open to the public.
The course, originally designed by renowned golf architect Donald Ross, was renovated and restored by Marshall Properties and local golf course architect, Robert McNeil of the Northeast Golf Company. The course’s Ross-inspired layout features seven original greens from the front nine and incorporates two additional greens. Met Links offers beautiful elevation changes, wonderful vistas and spectacular conditions, providing a unique experience for golfers of all ages and skill levels.
“I’m pleased to see that as part of the development of the Metacomet, a public 9-hole golf course is being retained where members of our community who once were unable to play on this property without being a member can now enjoy the natural beauty of the Met Links,” Mayor Bob DaSilva said.
“This is a very exciting day for East Providence and the golf community in Rhode Island as we officially celebrate the return of golf to this historic property,” said Lianne Marshall, co-owner of Marshall Properties, Inc. “Met Links delivers an exceptional golfing experience that honors the rich history of the property while showcasing the beauty of East Providence. We are thrilled to finally welcome the public to play the course.”
“The rich history of golf architecture which rests within the Metacomet property is undeniable. It is with profound respect for Donald Ross’ work and careful study of the design’s intent that Met Links has been created for all to enjoy,” said Robert McNeil, Golf Architect at Met Links.
Met Links will offer a variety of amenities including a Pro Shop featuring merchandise and golf essentials, golf carts, and a putting green.
Met Links will be open daily with tee times available from 6:30 a.m.to 6:00 p.m. throughout the season. Players can book their tee times online at www.MetLinksGolf.com or by calling the Pro Shop directly at (401) 414-7337. Special discounted rates are available for East Providence residents.

The opening of Met Links is the result of collaborative efforts between Marshall Properties, NMP Golf Construction, Northeast Golf Company/Club9 Golf Management and golf superintendent Paul Jamrog.
