Warwick Country Club might be the second best par 69 course in the U.S., behind only Wannamoisett Country Club, which is just 17 miles away on the other side of Providence. Both courses were designed by Donald Ross—Ross laid out the first nine holes at Warwick in the early 1920s—with the latter property situated on the shore of Narragansett Bay. Geoffrey Cornish added the second nine in the early 1950s, what is now most of today's second nine. The clubhouse and pool occupy the most coveted views and real estate, but the expansive bay is visible from much of the course, including the original eighth and ninth holes with their greens set next to the water.
