Newport Golf Club

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

Est. 1903

Newport Golf Club is home to one of the pleasantest of the inland parkland golf courses in South Wales, and surely one of the best layouts. The course sits 300 ft above sea level on an inland plateau, providing beautiful views onto the surrounding hills of North Gwent.

Set amongst the birch, beech and oak trees of the Llwyni Wood, which surrounds much of the course, the terrain's gentle slopes and undulations provide a varied and thoroughly interesting layout for the course. A more open front-nine, is complemented by some excellent holes 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

Wales: 34th best course in Wales (Golf World, 2019).
