• About The Aquidneck Club


The Aquidneck Club is a private sporting estate committed to the art of living well. The location is classic New England-overlooking deep blue water across open fields and dappled countryside, offering a sanctuary for golf, tennis, equestrian and maritime pursuits. Members expect luxury, experience comfort, and enjoy fine dining, as private yachts tug on their moorings to the west and the setting sun casts its golden glow across Narragansett Bay.

Formerly the Carnegie Abbey Club, Peter de Savary opened it in 2000 on 300-plus acres leased from the Benedictine monks who operate Portsmouth Abbey School.  In January of 2019, a group of former Carnegie Abbey members purchased this beautiful location to create a new world-class member-owned club.

To achieve our new vision of service excellence, our new ownership group has already committed nearly six million dollars to the new club to guarantee immediate financial stability, and to enable capital expenditures. We will be spending nearly $3 Million in the first two years to make upgrades to the clubhouse and the beautiful golf course.

Club Life

An active lifestyle awaits. Family picnics, holiday get-togethers, sunset sails, member events, film screenings, pony rides, garden parties and the ever-popular Aquidneck Ball,  enrich the texture of the sporting and social experience at the Aquidneck Club.

Camp Aquidneck provides organized instruction for your children. Skill-building focuses on tennis, golf, riding, sailing and marine studies, with hands-on creative workshops and supervised swimming. Interaction and experiences at the Club teach children social skills and sportsmanship while creating memories for a lifetime.
