|I had one of the best golfing experiences of my life at this amazing Rhode Island gem. Wannamoisett has the best greens I have ever played and I have played Augusta. Do yourself a favor and find out about Wannamoisett.|

The Best There Ever Was, Jul 08, 2004
|reviewer: Thomas Wellington, IV
from Newport, RI USA
|As a young child growing up in Rhode Island, I experienced the blessing of being able to play at one of the best courses around. Right when you walk in the door, you are treated with respect and dignity from the professionals. The junior golfers treat the course and its players with respect. I once was playing at Wannamoisett when a young, teenage boy by the name of Owen ran up to me and said, "Sir, I'm sorry for taking so long, you can most definetly play ahead of us." I realized later that the junior golfers at Wannamoisett are taught to be respectful of the course and its players. I hope you all visit Wannamoisett, because it is the best there ever was.|
