PORT ARANSAS, Texas - In his August 30th blog post on Statesman.com, Kevin Robbins recounts "Six hours on 150 pretty special acres on the Gulf of Mexico." The Newport Dunes Golf course has been receiving rave reviews since it opened last year. A few excerpts of Kevin's blog are below:
I spent six hours on 150 pretty special acres on the Gulf of Mexico, at an American golf course as close to true links that I’ve seen since Bandon Dunes. Newport Dunes, a par-71 Arnold Palmer design on Mustang Island, opened a year ago to reviews favorable enough that I begged the newspaper for a travel assignment.
It works as a novel experience for the newcomer to links golf and, I would suspect, it works as a more-than-serviceable replacement until the links connoisseur makes his annual pilgrimage to Machrihanish or Western Gailes. A lot of American courses attempt to borrow the links idea, in name or in style. Newport Dunes didn’t borrow anything. It had it to begin with.
