The club closed abruptly on April 14 over a rent dispute. On May 22, the New England Institute of Technology and the Carlozzi Group announced that they have reached an agreement to operate the golf course and restaurant facilities.
East Greenwich (R.I.) Club is set to reopen under a new operator after an abrupt closure in April due to a rent dispute, the Providence, R.I., NBC News 10 reported.
New England Institute of Technology, along with the Carlozzi Group, announced May 22 that they have reached an agreement to operate the golf course and restaurant facilities, NBC reported.
A press release noted that the long-term agreement “will bring stability to the club’s operations,” as the golf course will immediately reopen and all 2018 golf memberships will be honored, NBC reported.
“We are pleased to have Carlo Carlozzi, Kyle Poland and their team operate the East Greenwich Country Club,” NEIT’s Vice President for Corporate Education and Training Steven H. Kitchin said, adding that “the Carlozzi Group will provide a restaurant experience equal to their renowned Providence restaurant Circe, which will open by mid-summer. Their long record of excellence as owners of Providence’s Circe Restaurant makes them an excellent fit for the country club. With the club now under new management, patrons will have the opportunity to once again enjoy the 9-hole golf course and dining facilities.”
The release noted that the property, which was purchased by New England Tech in 2010, has been under private management since the acquisition, NBC reported.
Carlozzi, who lives in East Greenwich, said he is “pleased to bring another great restaurant to our community” and to reopen the golf course, NBC reported.
“I personally know many of the members affected by the club’s recent closing so I am happy to be part of the solution,” he said. “These facilities will further enhance the East Greenwich community. I look forward to an outstanding long-term relationship with New England Tech and the club’s patrons.”
