Newton Stewart Golf Club
- Holes: 18
- Par: 69
- Length: 5840 yards
Newton Stewart Golf Club is a parkland golf course with mature trees. It is set on two levels with spectacular views of Galloway Hills and Wigtown Bay.
Although there are five par threes and only two par fives, the short holes all provide good tests because of the different elevations and tree positions. The signature hole is the 159-yard No. 10, which is played from a plateau tee to a bowl-shaped green set in a slope above a burn in a small ravine.
Water comes into play on two of the holes, and patches of wild gorse will punish wild shots. Good drainage keeps the golf course playable throughout the year, except in unusual circumstances.
Newton Stewart Golf Club was formed in 1896, with an extension to 18 holes in 1993.

Good day out
Golf course played well, although it was hard to follow route of the course. They could have used more direction signage
But thoroughly enjoyed the game.
I recommend this course
