The Newport Beach Country Club is a par-71, 6,591-yard layout located along the Pacific Coast Highway in scenic Newport Beach.
Not surprisingly for a course that is 50 years old, the Newport Beach Country Club's distinguishing characteristic is its maturity. The narrow perennial rye fairways are lined by bold stands of aged pine trees, preventing the course from being overwhelmed by long hitters. Prosperity is contingent upon accuracy off the tee, and a patient study of the challenging poa annua greens that, according to local knowledge, break toward the Pacific.
Originally designed by William Bell in 1952, the Newport Beach Country Club underwent enhancements by Harry Rainville in 1973 and Ted Robinson in 1985 and 1998.
