Videtta Golf Management provides quality golf at an affordable price at its three courses, Laurel Lane Country Club and Country View Golf Club in Rhode Island and Pine Ridge Country Club in Massachusetts.
“I think what makes us successful operators is our experience on the agronomy side and the golf side of our business,” says Joe Videtta, co-owner of the company along with his brother, Mike. “We operate very efficiently and thus are able to provide very affordable golf to the public. We also have great staffs that are people friendly and enjoy working at the courses. At Laurel Lane and Pine Ridge, we also have exceptional food and beverage operations, a very popular attraction. Each year we always find projects to do at all the courses to improve our product.”
Videtta Golf renovated the fifth hole at Laurel Lane. At Pine Ridge and Country View, tee box renovations and drainage work has been underway the past several years.
Videtta Golf continues to support junior golf at each course. The courses have hosted a number of high school teams and players at no charge the past several years. VDM also provides reduced rates for juniors during the summer. The company also specializes in outings of all sizes at its three courses.
Laurel Lane CC is a well-maintained, par-71, 6,128-yard course located just off Route 138 in West Kingston, R.I. The track has relatively few bunkers and is a splendid place for all skill levels to play.
Better have your game warmed up because Laurel Lane throws some difficulty at you right away. The first hole is a 412-yard par-four, the second, a 482-yard par-five that tempts payers to go for the green in two after a big drive, and the third a challenging, 189-yard par-three. The backside has several short par-fours where birdie awaits and a great, 548-yard par-five to end your round. Laurel Lane has two lounges and bar areas with a dining area and a top notch pro shop.
Country View, off Route 7 in Harrisville, R.I., is lined with majestic willow trees and routed over a rolling terrain. Bunkers are strategically placed, and the greens are on the small side and rather difficult to hit, which places a premium on chipping ability.
The par-fours on the front side are very good risk-reward holes, while the only par-five on the outward nine being the 475-yard sixth, which is very reachable in two for long hitters. The back side toughens up the course, with two stringent par-fours, and two strong par-threes, including the 199-yard 17th. There’s a lounge and bar area, a restaurant for lunch and dinner and a first class pro shop.
Pine Ridge, located just south of Worcester in North Oxford, Ma., is a picturesque, par-71, 6,002-yard layout that provides plenty of challenge despite is overall short total distance.
Pine Ridge is a shot-maker’s delight, with several drivable par-fours, reachable-in-two par-fives, and tough par-threes that demand sound club selection and pinpoint accuracy. A pleasingly eclectic mixture of relatively easy and demanding holes can be found right out of the box. The first hole is a 308-yard par-four that cries out for the player to hit driver; number two is a short, 150-yard par-three; the third is a beefy, 202-yard par-three; and the fifth is a demanding, 403-yard par-four. Facilities include a restaurant and banquet area, which are perfect for small or large groups.
