No RI Courses Make Top 100, Multiple MA Courses Do
The latest golf course rankings are out and there is not one Rhode Island course on the list.
Not even Newport Country Club made the Golf Digest’s top 100, and they are hosting the 2024 U.S. Senior Open.
Back in November, a different publication, golf.com, named Newport the 84th best course in the U.S.
While no RI courses made the Golf Digest list, just over the border in Massachusetts, multiple courses made the list, and some are ranked pretty highly.
