Where the Good Life Goes Back 100 Years
Only six miles away, the iconic port city of Newport, Rhode Island, provides a delightful "downtown" for Carnegie Abbey Club members. Newport is unmatched for its rich seafaring heritage and its status as home to leading families of America’s Gilded Age.

As the rows of mansions-turned-museums attest, industrialists like Vanderbilt, Rockefeller and Astor made Newport an exclusive resort of relaxed sophistication, and Narragansett Bay a beacon for some of the world's finest yachts.

About the Area
The unspoiled woodlands and waters of Carnegie Abbey served as as hunting and fishing grounds for the Narragansett Indians for thousands of years. Narragansett Bay is second only to the Chesapeake in its abundance of shellfish and offers mineral wealth, as well.

The Narragansett tribe called this place Aquidneck, "Isle of Peace," and shared it with the osprey, songbirds, deer, waterfowl, and trout that still flourish here. In time, arriving English settlers discovered the same wealth of natural resources and temperate climate.


Wildlife abounds in and around the local waters.

In the summer of 1778, as the Revolutionary War raged across the colonies, the terrain that now serves as the Club's golf course was the site of the Battle of Rhode Island. The battle is commemorated in holes dubbed Bloody Run, Patriots' Stand, and Hessians' Hole.

America's 19th-century transformation from pastoral frontier to industrial power brought Gilded Age splendor to Newport, but left the Isle of Peace undisturbed. A Benedictine monastery dating from 1900 remains owner and steward of this coastal preserve.
