Decision on Winnapaug CC Zoning Amendment Expected Monday

Westerly Town Council members will meet on Monday, Nov 21 for a public hearing on the zoning amendment of Winnapaug Country Club.  


The zoning amendment for the Donald Ross designed course will be in review following a proposal from owners Nick and Jill Scola. 

As GolfNewsRI reported, Winnapaug is scheduled to be revamped by golf legend Jack Nicklaus.

It is his first course revamp in Rhode Island.

Along with the course revamp, Nicklaus design is expected to build a new hotel, banquet hall, and one-two bedroom suites for the “ultimate golf experience.”

The renovations were scheduled to start in October, but there has been pushback from Westerly residents on the building portion of the renovation.

It will be interesting to see if the two sides can agree on Monday night.

 Winnapaug is the only public course in the town of Westerly.
