Faxon is arguably the best golfer to ever come out of Rhode Island and might be best known for running the CVS Charity Classic.

However, his reputation locally has taken a hit over the last couple of months after he was part of a group that bought and then sold Metacomet Golf Club after just one year.

Faxon & Metacomet 

Faxon was part of a group of investors that included Steve Napoli, Brendan VanDeventer, Tim Fay and Karl Augenstein. 

The group bought Metacomet for a reported $2.3 million in 2019, before flipping it to Marshall Development in February. 

Marshall is planning to redevelop the property, making this season the last for the Donald Ross-designed Metacomet. 

“Marshall plans to redevelop the site into an exciting first-class mixed-use property that will bolster both commerce and community in the upper bay.  In the coming months, a vision for the property will be unveiled – a vision that will further strengthen East Providence and Rhode Island’s economy through investment, job creation and the development of a vibrant center of activity in one of the state’s top communities,” said Marshall in a statement.
