Since then, Marshall has taken over the property and a chain link gate has been put up across the entrance, as GolfNewsRI has reported. 

RIGA’s Statement is as Follows: 

“We are heartbroken at the loss of Metacomet. We had a great relationship with them for the past 118 years and are sad to see that end.

A heartfelt thank you goes to all past members, golf professionals, superintendents and club leadership who played a part in that connection.”

  • Thank Brad faxon and company for that!

  • Metacomet was designed by Donald Ross and destroyed by Brad Faxon.
    How much money is enough, Brad? Shame on you!

  • So sad. The Met has been so busy the last few months, it was difficult to secure a tee time. Why should this beautiful Donald Ross treasure be destroyed??
