Newport Golf Club is undoubtedly one of the premier golf courses in South Wales having recently hosted a number of prestigious Welsh and National Amateur events.
The Club is a well established member's club, situated on the outskirts of Newport, some 6 miles to the west of the Celtic Manor Resort which is currently gearing itself up to host the Ryder Cup in 2010. The Club recently celebrated its centenary in 2003 and is well represented and highly regarded within Welsh golf.
The course itself stands 300 feet above sea level and extends to over 6,500 yards. The course is situated in the magnificent setting of the Llwyni Wood, an ancient Oak woodland, surrounded by rolling parkland which contributes to the overall beauty and challenge of the course. The highly dedicated Greenkeepers always maintain the course to the highest standards with large teeing areas, well manicured fairways and excellent putting surfaces providing a testing challenge to golfers of all standards.
The Clubhouse, which has recently undergone extensive restoration and modernisation now provides a relaxing and friendly atmosphere to relax following a day's enjoyable golf.
