The South Shore Village and Country Club golf course, designed by Ronald Stuart Cutlip, Golf Course Architect, will be routed and artistically sculptured in a “Links” style championship experience. The golf course routing gracefully unfolds through the site taking advantage of the natural contours, wetlands, and elevation changes. The course starts out as a park land/woodland course and then evolves into a links style course as you near the club house. This nine-hole (3,407 yards par 35) layout can play a regulation 18 holes (6,814 yards par 70) championship course by playing two rounds. Each round could be played from a different tee location. 

The site selected for the South Shore Village and Country Club golf course has many phenomenal ingredients; sandy loam soils, pine forests and the slightly rolling contours of a classic Donald Ross course. These sandy loam soils are excellent for turf quality and drainage. The natural topography has a nice undulating roll which is ideal for fairway construction, visual interest, and playability. Ron’s signature style derives from his desire to accentuate the existing natural terrain while maintaining a premier golf experience. 

Course Features

  • Greens will have bent grass, providing the members with a championship putting surface. 
  • Bunkers will fill with white sugar sand providing contrast to the existing sandy soils in the rough areas. These bunkers will be placed in strategic locations on the fairway and along the green complexes. 
  • Tees and fairways will have some of Rhode Island’s finest golf turf, short cut blue grass while the roughs will be a fescue mix in the existing sandy soils. The bluegrass fairways meander through the site, unfolding and spilling over the natural terrain creating an opportunity for the golfer to think before they make the shot. The bluegrass multiple tee locations are elevated and strategically placed on each golf hole to enhance and challenge your club selection. 
  • The fescue roughs will be mowed to different heights getting progressively higher as they cover the mounds.  
  • The practice range at the club will feature a driving range over the clubhouse lake with multiple tee locations, a practice putting green, and a practice bunker with a chipping green.  
  • Greens, tees, fairways, and bunkers will be constructed in accordance with the USGA (United States Golf Association) specifications.

    Please come visit South Shore Village and Country Club with friends or family, we hope this scenic, yet challenging course provides an enjoyable experience for golfers of all abilities.
