Long Description:
Button Hole Golf Course is a public facility named for an old swimming hole along the Woonasquatucket River in Providence, Rhode Island. Along with making golf affordable and accessible, Button Hole focuses on inner-city youth in the Providence area and works with schools to offer clinics and free or reduced cost play at the course.

Youngsters 7-17 who complete a six-week Button Hole Kids instructional program pay $1 to play until the age of 18.
