Gill and I played this course years ago. This is a link to the Club’s website https://newportnational.com
This is from the website: Newport National which started out as a 200-acre landscape nursery is now deemed the “Number One Public Access Course in New England,” by New England Golf Monthly. Legendary golf architect Arthur Hills designed the challenging 7,244 yard Orchard Course. The 18-hole links-style course sports sloping fairways, marshes, and strategically placed bunkers. The dramatic setting boasts views of the Atlantic Ocean and Sakonnet Passage, while challenging golfers with steady winds coming off the Narragansett Bay. Newport National is reminiscent of courses in Ireland and the legendary Scottish links. Golfweek Magazine placed the course in the “Top Twenty New Courses in America” soon after it was completed.
I remember thinking this was a fun course to play. We stayed at our friends Peter and Katy D’s house near by. Sensational location.
