Palmilla Beach Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 2008

Palmilla Beach Golf Club (formerly known as Newport Dunes Golf Club) in Port Aransas, Texas, is home to an Arnold Palmer designed links-style course. Originally a full 18-hole championship layout, the rebuilding of the course after Hurrican Harvey blew through in 2017, saw it return as a single loop of nine holes.

The transition to the new nine-hole course was achieved by eliminating nine-holes that lay on the south side of an access road. Some of the remaining holes were shortened, and a new 9th hole, a par-3 of 205 yards, was added. The now smaller version of the original course still provides an enjoyable open links-style layout, which will test your all-round game.
