Wanumetonomy, translated as "windy hill" according to local lore, was founded in 1922 and is located on the western edge of Aquidneck Island in Middletown, Rhode Island. The 18-hole course, whose fairways wind their way along the contours of Wanumetonomy's hillside expanse, provides the player an always-changing view of Narragansett Bay's East Passage. Famed golf course architect Seth Raynor in the “sea coast” style of open fields and few trees originally designed the course. Golf course architect Ron Prichard, under contract to Wanumetonomy Golf and Country Club (WGCC), developed a Master Plan to accomplish long-term restorations. Long respected by Rhode Island golfers, Wanumetonomy, replete with stylish bunkers that challenge the equanimity of the most accomplished golfer, takes its place among the state's finest golf courses.
