• The North Kingstown Municipal Golf Course Phone: (401) 294-4051 is a 6,161-yard, par-70 offering that has tight fairways and nice par fives. Bring your straight game here rather than a long one. And watch it on windy days. Greens fees are $28 on weekdays and $35 on weekends. Carts are $24.

• Locals suggest starting on the back nine of the Montaup Country Club Phone: (401) 683-0955.
