Architect Robert McNeil is heading the revamp of the former Foxwoods Golf & Country Club in Richmond, R.I., which has lain fallow for seven years. The revived 200-acre property will also include fishing, off-road biking, hiking, rock climbing, zip lining, skeet and clay shooting, and seasonal bird and small game hunting.
Architect Robert McNeil expects to complete construction soon on The Preserve at Boulder Hills, a revamp of the former Foxwoods Golf & Country Club course in Richmond, R.I., which has lain fallow for seven years, Golf Course Architecture reported.
Owner Paul Mihailides hired McNeil to transform the rugged 200-acre property, which is around 15 minutes from the Atlantic coast, into a new-look golf course, Golf Course Architecture reported.
“The layout blends handpicked elements of the old course and the natural character of the site resulting in a routing that is meant to ignite a visual and strategic charge,” said McNeil. “When you think of Rhode Island, buffalo meandering in meadows is certainly not the first thought that comes to mind. Imagine eyeing a shot to a pin tucked on a high plateau protected by bulging rock and framed by meadow grasses when a group of bison pass along the high ridge in the distance.”
The revived club will also include fishing, off road biking, hiking, rock climbing, zip lining, skeet, clay and seasonal bird and small game hunting, Golf Course Architecture reported.
