The Carlozzi Group has taken over the East Greenwich Country Club’s golf course and restaurant, New England Tech announced this week. NEIT owns the property, which lies west of the school’s East Greenwich campus on Division Road.
“We are pleased to have Carlo Carlozzi, Kyle Poland and their team operate the East Greenwich Country Club,” said NEIT’s Steven Kitchin in a press release. “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 golf course and restaurant closed abruptly a month ago. It has been leased by lawyer Robert Rainville in 2017.
Kitchin said the golf course would reopen immediately and that all 2018 golf memberships would be honored. The course is open to the public (users can pay a day fee).
Carlozzi, who lives in East Greenwich, plans to reopen the restaurant by mid-summer.
“I am pleased to bring another great restaurant to our community and to reopen the East Greenwich Country Club golf course,” he said. “I personally know many of the members affected by the club’s recent closing so I am happy to be part of the solution.”
