TODAY, officials will cut the ribbon on the opening of MetLinks Golf Course, the restored 9-hole golf course of what was once Metacomet Country Club. The course has a restored 7 greens and 2 new greens.

In 2020 Metacomet Country Club closed its doors, much of the golf course was lost, and the property was eventually sold. Marshall Properties, the new owner, salvaged and restored much of the course’s semi-preserved front nine. Robert McNeil, ASGCA, and his team at the Northeast Golf Company worked on the restoration of the front nine with two new greens to be constructed.

East Providence Mayor Roberto DaSilva, elected officials and community leaders will join members of Marshall Properties to celebrate the opening of MetLinks Golf Course with a ribbon cutting ceremony TODAY, June 25th at 9:30 a.m. Course Tours will be available after the speaking program.

In addition to the mayor, Lianne Marshall, Co-owner, Marshall Properties, Inc., Robert McNeil, Golf Architect, MetLinks, and elected officials and community leaders will attend.

“The rich history of golf architecture which rests within the Metacomet property is undeniable,” said Robert McNeil, Golf Architect at MetLinks. “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.”

    Thanks to KMG & their loyal supporters for fighting to keep SOME of the golf course open, otherwise Marshall planned to build out the entire 130+ acres!!! This was NEVER Marshall’s plans from beginning. Give credit where credit is due: to KMG, their supporters & concerned residents for making this happen. 💚
