Dry

The course was in good shape but hard, the area is very dry. With rain will really help out the firmness of the greens and fairways

A fun course for our skill level

This is one of the go-to courses for my golfing partner and me. The course is reasonably challenging, but not frustrating. It is also very pretty (love the river intertwining throughout the course). It is the only course on which I have gotten an eagle (we play from the senior tees). We can usually make par on at least a few holes on each 18 hole round, and both of us can make birdies once in a while.

Pace of plkay

We have played at this course quite a bit this year, course is in beautiful condition, considering the other dried out courses. Very green and spectacular foliage sightings on this course.
Only problem this time a foursome 2 groups ahead had 4 holes open in front of them and showed no respect for holding up the entire course.
Only wish there was a ranger to move them along. Groups in front of us jumped ahead of them as they were so frustrated with waiting each hole.

Newport, not the same one I know!

I have recently moved to the area and this was the first time playing the course. At my old house there was a course also named Newport, however they are totally different.

Back to this course. WOW the greens were very nice and well kept, and there is NOT A LEVEL GREEN on the entire course. The pins today were in some very tough spots and most of them were on an edge of a shelf, so it made for some interesting putts. Fairways were in good shape, the tee boxes were somewhat rough, however with the weather it is understandable, plus you get to tee it up so does it really affect your shot? No. The course was well groomed and maintained in the areas that required it (greens, bunkers (green side) and fairways. I will play again as there were some holes that local knowledge helps! The only downside was that the 19th hole wasn't open due to COV19 (thanks!).

Great track and you need to play it!

Great day for 18

Took my son for the first time to play here. The course provides a lot of variety and challenges. A great layout with directional changes throughout. I always enjoy playing here.

Very pretty course with challenging layout

Other than the beat-up carts, you would never know this course has been having financial difficulty. It was very pretty and well maintained, despite the severe drought we are having in NH. Would love to play it again.

Fun track

The lack on rain is taking a bit of a toll on the fairways but I wouldn’t say it effected my round much. The greens were great! Old style course so not long but challenging enough with undulating greens.

Fairways are rough, No kitchen

Overall a pleasant experience. Moderately challenging course with lots of unique holes. Tee boxes were in ok shape, fairways were pretty poorly maintained. Greens were in good shape though. Unfortunately no working kitchen for an after round lunch.

Course heading downhill

Played this course about 5 times this year. The greens are in good shape. But the fairways and tee boxes need help. There are many fairways that have sections with no grass and and lots of brown hard turf. Tee boxes are beat up. Grounds crew do not pause while an individual is playing. Don't think I will be back again.
