Slow play

We come to Newport twice a year one in June then again in November. We always make sure we play here. This week we played twice, and both times the play was very slow. Not sure what the problem was but I think they need to get. Ranger on the course to speed up slow play. Other than that it was in great shape

Great course, beautiful weather, cranky old guy

Conditions could not be better but cranky old man in pro shop is in need of an attitude repair.. Totally opposite from awesome cart girl who was very pleasant and just generally nice. The course itself was great, nice layout and challenging, greens were fast and true. Turkey club at the turn was delicious. Price a bit steep for November but Will definitely be back regardless.

Not a great experience

This was my first time playing the course. I was surprised to find that it was as long as it was - 6600+ yards from the white tees as a par 71. Things got off to as rocky start as apparently there was an 11:56 group, a 12:00 group, and my group at 12:04. When I asked the starter what was going on, he blamed Golfnow and said that they put 4 groups out in 4minute tee intervals. That sounded sketchy to me, but it was what it was. So we turned at 2:30 after 9 holes. The layout was fine, if a little flat and straight for the most part. The greens had recently been punched, so I didn't get their best representation. The bunkers were pretty terrible, with not a lot of sand. Overall, not a great experience, and I'm surprised they charge $80 with a cart on weekends. I doubt I'll be heading back.

Wanted to play another 18 right after!

Beautiful course with majestic views. Green were forgiving. Well maintained. Semi challenging but it's more of a course that you enjoy than anything else.

Next time I'm in Newport, definitely will try again.

Afternoon gem

Good place to slip on to during the mid/late fall afternoons. Reasonably priced for walking 9 holes. Can loop 9 in less than 2 hours.

We played here two days. The staff was great and gave us a rain check as we were not able to complete our round the first day out. Book tee times on line 5 days in advance.

Going through Fall aeration

GVCC is a very challenging golf course. It sits at the crest of Aquidneck Island and is at the mercy of winds in our Ocean State. Right now, the course is undergoing Fall aeration, something that all of the courses undergo at this time of year. Greens have just been 'pinned' and sanded, so our normally speedy greens are not at their best, but will be in a week or two. Our Spring and Summer have been very wet, and the rough has been very penal as a result. Still one of the best semi-private courses in Rhode Island.

Painfully Slow

I love playing this course when not overbooked. One of the groups included 5 teenagers who were painfully slow and unaware of etiquette. We skipped a hole to pass them and things did not get much better. On the eighth hole there were 3 groups waiting to tee off. Nice course, in great shape but its just too slow. They need to limit the number of groups per hour or utilize a diligent ranger.
