The Preserve Club and Residences Richmond, RI
"It is an amazing property. Its 18-hole golf course definitely belongs on the Golf Advisor ‘Top Ten Par 3 Courses in America’ list.”
–P. H. Hogan, PGA Tour, Champions Tour
Carved from and set organically within 3500 acres of pristine American wilderness, the Championship course at the Preserve calls upon skills, engages minds, and touches hearts.
Designed by legendary, award-winning golf architect Robert McNeil and the Northeast Golf Company, this 18-hole, par 3 course, along with its hybrid cross country par 34 configuration, stand as two of the most challenging yet playable executive courses in the Northeast. McNeil honored the land’s natural rolling character by incorporating its multiple elevations and boulder-strewn, hilly terrain into a design featuring a variety of tees that test players at all skill levels. The course at The Preserve is also the recipient of the American Association of Golf Architects’ Design Excellence Award.
Paul Mihailides, owner and developer of The Preserve, proudly describes the property as “the most amenities-rich sporting community in America – a private retreat where unspoiled nature and sophisticated elegance find common ground. And our golf course is, without question, one of its crown jewels.”
“I’ve developed country clubs for decades,” says Mihailides. “I love the sport, and I’ve come to know literally thousands of players. I believe that the vast majority of golfers may be described accurately as ‘outdoor enthusiasts,’ and we’ve created The Preserve to engage their passions throughout the year – even when the golf course is wrapped tight in blankets of snow.”
As the country’s finest four-season sporting club and community, The Preserve offers bird hunting, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, zip lining, fly fishing, tennis, cross country skiing, gourmet dining and event facilities. World-renowned for their shooting sports, The Preserve offers multiple sporting clays courses including their coveted 19-station course comprised of wooden post and beam constructed shooting pavilions situated along a mile-a-half meandering traverse, providing both covered and open shooting positions each outfitted with 4–6 clay throwers to aptly challenge the novice to expert alike. Shooting enthusiasts can also hone their skills on The Preserve’s 10-sation five-stand with heated and covered shooting positions sighted on a course with incredibly over 300 different target presentations.
The Range at The Preserve is the nation’s longest underground automated range with 150-yard lanes and also offers golf simulation, archery, and a Firearms Training Simulator (FATS®). The Sporting Shoppe, designed in the classic tradition of history’s great expedition outfitters, offers outdoor gear from the most bespoke shotguns and rifles, to custom-built fly fishing reels, to clothing and accessories equally graced by style and functionality. It even offers an Outfitting Program that puts members in contact with the world’s finest hunting, fishing, and photography guides.
At The Preserve, dining is everything a world-class culinary experience should be. Chefs have mastered diverse techniques from around the globe. Members and overnight guests enjoy outstanding cuisine in beautifully designed dining rooms or hand-delivered to their Preserve residences.
Additional dining includes the exclusive Maker’s Mark Hobbit Houses, serving flavorful grilled dishes and bourbon in a magical, storybook setting. Nestled into the property’s hillside boulders, the Maker’s Mark Hobbit Houses are available for lunch and dinner and cleverly complements the lush environment.
