In 1895, the first U.S. Open Championship was held in Newport and golf has been a favorite pastime ever since. If Arnold Palmers are what calls your name, there are more than a few public and private options to hit the links. Take your pick of Scottish links-style courses with panoramic vistas of the Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean throughout Newport and Bristol County. Less than 30 minutes from the resort, The Orchard Course at Newport National is environmentally conscious, boasts unbeatable views of the ocean, and any skill level is welcome. Green Valley in nearby Portsmouth has stellar dining, and a beautiful lounge for that pre or post-game libation. Green Valley is a par 72, and just a 30 minute drive away.
