Owner description: Newport National Golf Club is one of New England's finest golf courses. Located in Middletown RI, this award winning 200-acre golf course is your number one choice for a round of golf in Rhode Island. Newport National which started out as a landscape nursery is now deemed the "Number One Public Access Course in New England," by New England Golf Monthly. Newport National is a 7,200-yard, par 72 championship golf course as well as an open space tribute to environmental sensitivity. Built to challenge golfers of every skill level, including the best in the world, this links-style course will take your breath away with its beautiful vistas of the Atlantic Ocean and the Sakonnet Passage. The fescue-lined, bentgrass fairways, tees and greens will remind you of the great courses of Ireland. The bridle trail and restored natural areas will illustrate our vision of a golf course built in harmony with the land. Golf course architects Arthur Hills and Drew Rogers used this former nursery farm and orchard as the canvas upon which to craft their masterpiece. We are honored to have you experience our addition to the rich golf heritage of Rhode Island and encourage you to see it for yourself.

“Good links style course, but $$$ and out of the way”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

It's an all day excursion to get down to Middletown to play this wonderful links style course. It's one of the better courses in New England, but not really worth the nutty greens fees.

“Great Golf Experience”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Just a wondeful gem of a links style course. Great condition and a joy to play! We would certainly play here again. Only issue was the score card nor the tee box showed the each holes layout.
