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 3,500 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.
