Over the years, Jamestown has had three golf courses: the Conanicut Golf Club (1895-1904), Jamestown Golf and Country Club (1902-present), and the Beaver Tail Country Club (1926-1944).
The October exhibit in the JHS library display case shows the layout of the two defunct courses and features a pewter cup awarded at the Jamestown Golf and Country Club in 1913. Score cards from the courses show the par for each of the holes.
