Where2Golf says: 

Newport Country Club is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in New England. The excellent open, links-style layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game. However, this is a private course generally playable only by members and their guests.
