This course is in top condition. It has the best tees I have ever seen,could serve for greens on some public courses. The fairways are tight very firm and were not in great shape being verticut made it difficult. The greens were good although I wasn't crazy about the way they were designed.Almost all were elavated surrounded by sand traps and not very big. The weather down there seems to be foggy quite often with pretty good wind. I enjoyed the course but did not think it was one of the best in the area as claimed,pretty high priced too.

I really enjoyed playing here.Course is tough but fair,you have to tnink around here as driver not needed on many holes.I played with a lady golfer and she found it very difficult as a fairly new golfer.Clubhouse is a trailer with a porch as dining room? no range on property also,with $$$ as greens fee there should be better amenities

Great course! I played early in the season so the rough hasn't quite grown in yet. It is an extremely well maintained, long course with a good amount of bunkers and rolling greens. The pre-season rate of $40 was awesome, but it gets a bit expensive for an out-of-stater during the season. One of the best in RI.

Given the outstanding condition (even in mid November), who cares about the mediocre amenities. This course proved to be an amazing golfing experience. Unfortunately, my experience was hampered by a rainy and foggy November afternoon. Which actually added to the landscape and feel of a traditional European course. A must play for any golfer. A copy of the course layout is a must. Neither the scorecard or tee box markers have layouts of the holes, significantly adding to difficulty if your a first timer to Newport, as I was!!

too bad they don't have a clubhouse (glorified trailor) the best public golf course in RI but with no driving range or clubhouse it is not worth the 95 to play

Very special course. The best public access course in New England. Fabulous shot values, beautiful scenary, world class design. Greens were a little scuffed. Too bad the course is in a community that can't seem to support it. Needs a practice range and short game area worthy of the golf course.

Fantastic course!!! The low marks for amenities are due to lack of driving range or practice facilities. Additionally there is no permanent clubhouse. However, hit a bucket at Green Valley CC before your round and eat at a local resturant to compensate. The course itself is outstanding. A true test of golf with many difficult but fair holes. There are a few great risk/reward short par 4's and a few tough par 3's. Links style golf course that is well worth the visit.
