The game of golf was born on rugged, wind-swept land similar to the coastline of Mustang Island. Every hole, every hazard, every shot at Palmilla Beach Resort & Golf Club (previously Newport Dunes Golf Club) was meticulously considered to take full advantage of the land and elements indigenous to the area. As the elements change, so does the course. It's all part of this great game as it was meant to be played. Creativity quickly becomes an asset as you face multiple options on nearly every shot. Consistent with the traditions of links golf, controlling ball trajectory and adjusting to varying slopes and conditions is more important than raw power.

Measuring over 6,900 yards from the back tees, the par 71 golf course meanders through sweeping untamed native dunes and offers spectacular views of both the Gulf of Mexico and Corpus Christi Bay. Reminiscent of the coastal links in Scotland, Palmilla Beach challenges golfers with ocean breezes, rolling fairways lined with native grasses and imposing greens. The intentional design and layout combine with the natural elements to uncover a new golf experience each time you play.

Managed by Troon Golf, the new golf shop and clubhouse feature both indoor and outdoor dining options at the Black Marlin Bar and Grill, with concerts being held during peak season. The three-story full service bar is a wonderful place to kick back and relax after a round of spectacular golf and take in the breathtaking views of the Gulf and watch the sun set over Corpus Christi Bay.
