Underrated Course-leave your driver in your truck

I have Probably played this course 40 times in my life. When I haven’t played for awhile, it’s a great test for sharpening my short and mid-iron play. I purposely leave the driver in my truck, to make the short par 4’s more of a challenge. After the rain, we were the first two out (6:30 AM tee time) and finished walking 18 holes in 2 hours and ten minutes…course was wet but very playable. The bacon egg burritos in the coffee shop were delicious and the staff is always friendly. Great little underrated course.

This course is alright.

I thought the round went ok. I didn’t like hitting off the mats. They also advertised lights and they weren’t on. I also thought the greens were very sandy with the green stuff they add to the greens. I probably wouldn’t come back unless it’s the range

Nice round of Golf on a very nice day!

Admittedly Newport golf course could stand to be better kept, But you are within just a few minutes from the beach and the weather is generally very moderate. The Price is very good too. I don't want to beat it too bad. The Driving Range is nice and the snack bar is decent. No Bar Cart girls though....

Slow slow slow

By the 4th hole there was a 4 group line up waiting to tee off. Just atrocious pace of play and makes for a longer than necessary round.

Grass Tee Box!

Haven’t played here in more than a decade. They’ve really made it enjoyable. Not every hole has a mat!! Awesome improvement. I think all holes on the back have a grass tee box. Greens were great and I couldn’t believe people had golf carts. I’ll be back.

Tee times to close together

No control of tee times or starter block. It seems they just pack the course with as many players as possible. I did a hot deal for 18 holes on a Sunday at 4pm and didn’t want to play the back nine because it was talking so long to finish the front nine. Won’t use this app to book a times here again.

Overpriced and always busy

One of the longer executive type courses around here. The greens are in decent shape as well as the tee boxes. I went to go play last week. Had a 6AM tee time and when I went to get I. My car at 5:30 it wouldn’t start so I couldn’t go. But of course I got charged still. Kind of ridiculous. A course that is packed all the time and really because it’s the only one around, charges me for a tee time I so desperately wanted to go to but couldn’t. Disgusting
