Round of golf for 3 - Ron Machtley fourth player. Newport Country Club, founded in 1893, is a historic private golf club located in Newport Rhode Island. It has been recognized as one of the top courses in the United States. The club is one of the five founding member clubs of the United States Golf Association. The course has had several serious modifications and additions. William F. Davis is credited with the first formal 9-hole layout. 1893. In 1897, an additional 9-holes were added by Davis, making Newport an 18-hole course. The original 18 holes were all located east of Harrison Avenue. In 1921, the Club purchased two parcels of land, west of Harrison Avenue. These purchases made possible the addition of 7 holes and the rerouting of the course to the east side of Harrison Avenue. The redesign of the course with the new 7 holes on the west side of Harrison Avenue was done A.W. Tillinghast. This is the current 18-hole layout played today.
