The Dunes Club
Join us at The Dunes Club in Narragansett, a private beach club designed by noted Philadelphia architect Thomas Pym Cope and constructed in 1939, replacing an earlier complex that was largely destroyed by the Hurricane of 1938.
Weathered wood finishes, nautical motifs, and stripped-down, Colonial Revival styling – with Art Moderne flourishes – create a simple but elegant atmosphere in the clubhouse. Extensive decks and large expanses of glass make the most of the club’s outstanding seaside setting.
