Latest on Metacomet 

As has been reported, Metacomet was bought by the group and then sold just a year later to Marshall Development. 

Marshall Development plans to redevelop the property into hotels, a mall and other things. 

As GolfNewsRI reported, a group of East Providence residents are fighting back against development of the property by signing a petition and bringing it in front of the East Providence City Council. 

Most recently, Brad Faxon and his group that bought and sold Metacomet Golf Club received a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan. 

According to the list released by the U.S. Treasury, Metacomet Property Company LLC received a loan ranging between $150,000 and $350,000.
