Triggs Memorial Golf Course
Nestled in the Mount Pleasant section of Providence near Rhode Island College, this golf course won a three star rating in Golf Digest's Places to Play list. Designed by Donald Ross in 1930, this golf course is still considered a challenge by Rhode Island golfers. Along with well-kept greens, there are banquet facilities and a clubhouse that allows public dining. Meetings, parties and receptions can be held here.
Triggs has improved a great deal over the last five years. The fairways and especially, the greens, are just as nice as some of the private courses. The superintendent has done a great job, by far, the best public course in the state. Missing the greens off the back or hitting into some of the traps or hills will make you lose a shot every time. Playing from the back tees makes you use every club in your bag.The fees are very reasonable and they also have winter rates which some public courses do not have.
The layout is about the best in the state. The course is not long but it plays like it is. There's always a problem if you get off the fairways or go behind the greens. For a municipal course, I think the condition is splendid. Would recommend it to anyone.
People around here really like this course. I think it's okay. It's just not as well kept as some of the outher courses I've played. But maybe that's part of the experience? They like long shrubbery, and a more shaggy, untrimmed feel to the course?
The front nine is more difficult than the back nine. And it's still a good experience. It's right in the city, so I'm not sure what you can expect in terms of value. It's pricey, but on par with east coast golf. I'm just more used to cheaper west coast golf. I would go again, but mostly because I have a lot of friends that like to play there. I still haven't played all the courses in Rhode Island, so if I had my preference, I would continue to explore what's out there.
