Value, if booked with discount

There are many fairways that look like war zones. Factor that in before you pay $30 plus for a round.

They really need to make all holes with no mats and maintain the fairways a lot better.

Never again

Don’t fall for the price, not worth it. 3 different holes there Were 3-4 groups waiting on tee. Played 9 holes in 2.5 hours for an executive course. Layout very tight. Balls flying over head and matts for tee boxes are rock hard.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing Newport Beach Golf Course. We hope to see you again soon.

A Nice Course and Friendly Surroundings

The conditions are nice and the course is laid out well with shade spots and only a few holes in need of repair. The shop and snack bar are nice as is the driving range. It won't be the best course that you will ever play, but certainly now the worst either. Each hole has a turf tarp, so no golf tees needed other than the rubber ones. I've been there twice and will return.

For Juniors only

Majority of the tee boxes are set up with concrete pads that mats are placed on. The 2-3 tee boxes that had grass in the alternative longer hole length configuration, the leveling of the dirt and the sparse grass on top of it was a disaster. Never will play again with my 10 or 12 year old, even they were bummed out by it, and we play muni's in Long Beach all the time. Pass.

Worst course ever!

Not enough drive carts to accommodate golfers. That should be indicated in reservation information. Four holes were being completely torn up, .... again nothing indicated in course information. No signage at holes indicating "hold under repair", ... hit from designated drop area. You hit off mats at many homes, but no rubber tees provided. This was just an awful round. A lot would have to change for me to even consider ever playing there again. I DON'T CARE WHAT THE ZIP CODE IS!!!

Good value

We enjoyed the course, good chance to work on short game. The course was a little rough around the edges but the greens were in excellent shape. 18 holes for$25.00 on a beautiful day, it’s all good.

Quick Rounds at Newport

The mornings are a great time to play here. The pace is perfect as there isn’t much backup. Course conditions are always suspect here but I will say, they are managing the greens very well. Most other areas are not managed very well though.

This is a short course with a lot of very short holes but always makes for a quick round of golf at a reasonable rate.

So, yes, I do recommend playing here if you just want to get in a few hours of golf with very little difficulty.

Course needs a lot of work

Greens are in good shape, but golfers do not fix ball marks on greens. Repaired three or four marks per green during play. Course now requires holding onto drivers license and credit card if you rent a cart. They claim because of damage to a cart or two. New policy... id theft possibility is increased.... only course that I've played recently with this policy.... they collect phone numbers and I hope have insurance...., but.... bad policy unless they bond their employees. Teens on course lack any guidance.... five some created problems on back nine. I suggest playing elsewhere for a better golf experience... sorry Newport Golf course.... Baker in Fountain is a much better course for the money.
