Newport Golf Club

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

Est. 1903

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).

Published ranking

2019 Golf World rating: 34th best course in Wales.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
