How long is the fairway at Misquamicut?
A number of the fairways are routed close to tidal inlets that run along the Atlantic coastline, weaving in and out of wetland areas teeming with all sorts of wildlife. The course extends to a very modest 6,214 yards from the back markers so Misquamicut can certainly be described as a short, but very sweet, Donald Ross classic.
Why join the Misquamicut Golf Club?
In addition to golf, membership confers access to tennis and a beach club. Practice facilities are a relatively recent addition to Misquamicut and include a small grass driving range and impressive short game areas near the clubhouse.
What is the length of the Misquamicut golf course?

Why is Misquamicut so overlooked?
Another reason Misquamicut often gets overlooked is its isolated location in the Southwest corner of Rhode Island. Well off the highway on the Block Island Sound, most people in the state have never heard of or been to Watch Hill, a wealthy summer retreat reserved more for out-of-staters including Taylor Swift, who has a house in town.
