Slow

Super slow course, we’re stuck behind a foursome that had zero golf etiquette. Made for a miserable day out.

Hello, Freddy. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of the course. We would like to apologize for the delay of play during your round. Please know that this is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve and use your comments as guidance in doing so. Thank you for playing Newport Beach Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

This used to be a value course. Now not so much

40$ with cart is highway robbery for what you get. Mats for tee boxes, nothing but dirt not grass anywhere, greens were very unmaintained. And to top it off they over book like crazy! So get ready for three groups at every hole. Save your time and your money

You know what you're signing up for

Greens are always in good shape, but if you have ever played here before, we all know the fairways are dirt. They're working on putting natural grass tee boxes on almost all the holes on the back nine which is nice. The tee boxes need more sand and seed after heavy use. I always enjoy playing here if I pay under $25. If I pay over $25 for walking, its really not worth it. Basically, hot deal or bust for me personally.

Nice little course

Played here with of my golf buddies. It was the first time playing this particular course for all of us. I had mixed feelings about playing here. I was pleasantly surprised.
This is a great course to practice all of your irons on. Hitting off of the mats wasnt even an issue. We will defintely be back. The staff was very courteous us!

Fun relaxed local course

I liked that everyone seems very chill and most people are locals. Some large groups but they played fairly quickly. It was pouring rain the day I went and it was awesome. The 18th hole is a long stretch of dirt to the hole, good times.

Disappointed

If the course has you use mats on the tee box, why are the best quality mats on the driving range? The starter had groups of 3-5 everywhere. This killed the pace of play. The fairways are chewed up. Also, nothing preventing your ball from going to the bottom of the cup, during these Covid-19 times.

Surprisingly Good Condition

You would think a small muni course by the airport would be pretty rough but I am surprised how great the conditions are, particularly the greens. Even though they were plugged and sanded, they still rolled true and smooth. Great place to play more than a pitch n putt.

Worst Course I’ve ever played

They don’t even have grass tee boxes. You hit off plastic mats for each hole like you would a driving range. The cart seat had a soccer ball sized hole that wasn’t even tried to be patched. Most carts had baseball sized holes or larger. Might have a Newport Beach address but it was more like Santa Ana, but worse. Horrid place with horrid golf.

Course in pretty bad shape

There is no fairway :-(
Weeds everywhere which make it very difficult to find your ball unless you make it on the green. Course need major innovation.
