Played in June 2012 and I have played all over the world inc Ireland, Scotland and even Tahiti and this is in the top 5. Great, fabulous lay out and the condition of the course was fantastic. Pro shop is just as good and if you like links golf you MUST play.

I've played here the past two years that I've gone down to the coast, and WOW!!! This is a beautiful golf course!!! I look forward to playing there!!! This is a hidden gem in Texas! If you're a golfer, you NEED to tee it up at Newport Dunes!!!

This course is awesome i just wish they would curtail there prices a bit lower for military, Its not like there is alot of military personnel like other states. Savanah GA has military rates at 95% of its course no more than 50 to 60 on prime hours or through out the day. Other than that this is a Golfers Paradise be prepared to lose balls no matter what.

Great course. It's certainly easy to lose a ton of balls but, I'm a high handicapper and still managed a 92. The course is kept in great shape and the scenery is beautiful. The iced towels were a great touch on a hot day as well. Definitely a must play in the state of Texas.

After playing this course, I will never watch the British Open the same way. My views may be skewed, because the day I played it, there was a seabreeze with sustained winds of 40 MPH. The course itself is a true links style, where you absolutely MUST hit the fairway. A trip to the rough means you're likely to find three balls, none of which are yours. The bunkers are hazards- be prepared to play sideways or even backwards if you find a trap. The view is stunning, especially on 13 and 14, which come right up to the Gulf. If you're in South Texas, this course is an absolute must-play. Conditioning is immaculate, and the staff could not be more professional. The clubhouse itself is rather small, and lacks a formal dining area. That's OK, though. Newport Dunes is all about the golf.
