Booked a round at this course by accident, just looking at distance as the crow flies - not realizing where it was. My mistake. Play was super slow. Starter shack run by a kid who was not proactive. Asked for a heads up when cart was ready. None given (20 yards away in direct sight on putting green.) Course is boring, with mostly very long straight flat holes with the only distance markers being three fairway buttons 100, 150, 200 on each hole. No 150 poles. No colored flags or wiffle balls on the flagsticks. White tees were full of 200 yd par3's, 400 & 450 yd par 4's, and a 600 yd par 5. Red tees were super unfair to women. Greens are raised up and well protected, making it very difficult to roll a ball onto the green. You would think with the holes being this long, they would be much more easily accessible. The greens were in recovery condition -very lumpy after fall aeration, but no warning on golfnow. I cannot understand how this course could have a 4 star rating. The conditions did not warrant it. The layout is stupid. I won't be returning, but if you live in the Newport RI area maybe you will, just because it is nearby. For me, there are courses that are worth playing despite the long drive to get there, but this one was definitely not.

The course was in great shape, it's an awesome layout. With a 600 yard par 5 #10 and a 240 yard par 3 #11. You need to play well to score well. You will enjoy your day GV, give it a shot. You will be back.

Communication- Def! We arrived early from NY and they were quite apologetic that the course was log jammed and that there were no golf carts available. We were an hour early! We had a drink in the on site bar (friendly people there as well).

Golf staff were so accommodating and friendly and they did get us out earlier than our on line tee time! After 3+ hours in the car from NY and 9 holes my back was killing me. They said we can do the other 9 holes on Monday before our 3 hour ride home! Gentlemen! All of them!

I usually play 6200 to 6400 and the golds were 6000 and whites 6600 yards, so I played whites and it was challenging . Especially when the wind comes in. Remember you are on a island so choose the tee's carefully. Other then that the track is pretty cool and conditions were great even though it is at the end of the year.
