Designed by legendary golf architect Arthur Hills and his associate Drew Rogers, the Orchard Course at Newport National Golf Club spans almost 200 acres of former shrub and tree nurseries that offer sweeping views of The Sakonnet Passage, Atlantic Ocean and Narragansett Bay.
The course features greens, tees and fairways consisting of 100% seaside bent grass, and grand, swaying fescue often exceeding 4’ in length. Reminiscent of some of Irelands finest golf links, play Newport National and experience a unique New England golfing experience.

If you want a 5+ round this is the place for you. Managed to bag a local resident rate at $95 and was a disappointed with the 5+ it took to do the full 18. If I had the full rate I'd of been well pissed.
Layout of the course with 2 par 3's next to each other does not help pace neither does the lack of rangers or concern from the staff.
However the course (bar the 5+ round) is great! Fun course with good risk reward holes, OK for its price point, could be an excellent course if the management got on top of the pace of play.

One of the best conditioned public courses in New England. The only ding is the in-season rates which are $125. The shoulder rates are a bargain and the course is in awesome shape so being early spring or late fall doesn't matter much.

What can I say - an incredible course. None of the holes are comprimised in any way. A big layout with wonderful strategical challenges. Great driving course with many chances for high-risk/rewards, though room to bail as well. The holes face many angles and thus wind only hurts you occasionally. I play there only on discounted days, but I'll take it!

Played this course today(10/21/13)it was in great shape. Couple of tough holes, narrow fairways on a couple, but it was a wonderful round, lots of fun. Played with 3 other gentlemen who, like myself were 1st timers. I very highly recommend it.

Wonderful day. Only poor experience was the extreme slow pace of play.
