9 reviews of Newport Golf Club
Played today in bright sunshine after the frost had lifted. One temp green and a few homles on foward tees but oetherwise in remarkable condition for December in such a wild year for weather. Similar experiance to many ofthe other comments...course isnt hard, but no push over either. A ditchis going in on 11th so played to temp as par 3 Pro Shop is changing hands to shop was nearly empty - but former assistant is taking over as head pro so wont change much Watch out for the bride getting in and out!
Echo the comment about the small bridge...TAKE CARE! Once over that what a treat. Nice old style members club, proper pro shop (Pro is a former Amateur Champ, there was a pic of him playing at Birkdale with Nicklaus in the shop!) Course winds its way round the Woods with some great views, Not long, but tricky, oB in places and great greens. Round in three and a half hours too. Got charged a whole £2 for a sandwich afterwards...great value! We will be back
Lovely old club. Even in winter the greens played well and the course was in great shape for the time of year. Was closed last week due to snow. Nice variety of holes, the par 3s are all pretty. Proper old club house with very reasonably priced food and beer. Echo the review below that compares price and quality with Celtic Manor... no contest (if you are playing the non Ryder Cup courses!) Newport is the one to play
Played there this week (May 2011) What a smashing old club. No frills Clubhouse, very traditional. Excellent food and beer (Tim Taylors!) and very cheap! Proper Steward in the bar too! Course is 100 years old and a great variety of holes - not long by modern standards but lots of trees and gentle changes of elevation. Excellent condition on the greens, smooth and true. Quite speedy but one of the guys in the bar said they were slower than normal as they havent been cut to summer low yet due to dry Spring. (in Wales?) Many folk go to the Celtic Manor, but save a fortune and play here. Its a better course! (and no 6 hour round like we had a CelticManor)
We played Newport on Friday 19th September 2008 on a beautiful summer day in glorious sunshine, no wind, and could not have had a nicer afternoon. This is the third time we have had a round there and we will certainly be back - it's an excellent course. The pro and pro-shop staff were very friendly, as were the members we have spoken to in the clubhouse. As to the course, it's fantastic. Well established, pretty, with varied and challenging holes. Fairly well wooded, this undulating course starts with a beautiful looking par-4 and then continues with good-looking and testing holes all the way round. The greens were also superb. I'd be a tad wary of Henry who reports below, as the par of 74 is from the ladies tees - Newport is 6273 yards off the yellows and is par 72. Our only gripe would be that they don't book tee-times, we had driven almost 200 miles from Essex and had to trust to the word of the pro that the course wouldn't be too busy to accommodate us. Fortunately, it was fine and we had no-one in front, no-one behind. One other point to note is that the course is located down a small lane behind a housing estate which has a very tight, very small bridge to negotiate on a bend, a large vehicle could have difficulties getting past the bridge. In summary, having played all the courses in the area, this was much more of a pleasure to play than it's pretentious over-blown neighbour, the people were far friendlier and being just beyond the Severn bridge, this is well-worth playing at the gateway to the country as a starter for Welsh hospitality. Highly recommended.
I played this course with or society in November and even though the weather was not the best, the course was in great condition. It's very well run and the pro is very helpful. Given the chance have a word with the green keeper, he gave me some very useful tips. Well worth the price and our society look forwards to playing here again.
A very nice course with friendly members and staff. Not particularly tricky tee to greeen but some of the greens are very tough - lightning fast and with many undulations. It is a par 74 so if you can hit a reasonably long ball, you will get some good opportunities to score.
The course is simply pro quality, members are very friendly but a few are to posh! but mostly ok, i have played the course about 10 times all through the season and the course is very well maintained all year round thanks to the head greenkeeper angus and his team. the best part of the course are the fast slick greens which take a ball so well and putt so true, i recomend this course to any one up for a challange!
I had the pleasure of playing at Newport Golf Club in September 2002, and I was astounded at the quality of the course at the end of the season. It was recommended to me by a friend and I am so pleased I took him up on it. There was a very friendly atmosphere and the catering was good too.
