Newport Golf Club
Founded in 1903, Newport Golf Club is regarded as one of the best parkland courses in South Wales, located 300 feet above sea level, amongst the birch, beech and oak trees of the ancient Llwyni Wood.
The topography of the course is gently undulating with lush fairways and strategic bunkers ensuring that the far reaching views of the countryside and the Bristol Channel are enjoyed. The Club has successfully hosted a number of major Men’s and Ladies’ Welsh and National Amateur events over many years, offering a beautiful, yet challenging course to golfers of all capabilities.
Newport is a traditional yet progressive members’ golf club and offers a warm welcome to prospective new members and visitors alike.
Member Phillip Price won the John Jacobs Trophy for the first time after topping the Staysure Tour Order of Merit at the conclusion of the 2019 season.
Phillip finished second on the season-long rankings behind two-time John Jacobs Trophy winner Paul Broadhurst last year but went one better in 2019 to win the trophy, 361.6 points ahead of Kingston in second place. “To be Number One after 19 tournaments is really important to me,” said Price. “I’ve never won an Order of Merit of any type. I wanted to be number one, not number two or three, so I’m delighted. I finished second last year to Paul Broadhurst, which was nice, but it didn’t feel great, but to be number one and have the trophy is extra special.”
