Where2Golf says: 

Newport Golf Club: Without doubt, Newport is one of the pleasantest of the inland parkland golf courses in South Wales, and is surely one of the best layouts. The course is located some 300 ft above sea level on an inland plateau, providing beautiful views onto the surrounding hills of North Gwent. The course is laid out among the birch, beech and oak trees of the Llwyni Wood which surrounds much of the course. The gentle slopes and undulations provide a varied and thoroughly interesting topography, with a more open aspect to the front-nine, and some of the best holes coming on the more wooded back-nine. The use of steep-faced grass bunkers, rather than fairway sand-traps, reinforces the natural feel of the course. Upkeep is generally very good, not least on the excellent greens.

Did you know?

Newport Golf Club, founded in 1903, moved to its current site at Great Oak in 1912. One of the greatest oaks, located on what was later to become the site of the golf course, was the massive Golynos Oak. When this massive tree was felled in 1810, it yielded 2,426 cubic feet of timber (worth £400 at that time) and six tons of bark (worth £200).

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
