Battling the wind makes Newport, Rhode Island golf
It’s always a little more interesting when the wind plays havoc with your shots, inevitably whipping up on that monster par 5 and letting down on that dainty par 3, just when you’ve started to overcompensate. Sure, it makes golf even tougher, but if you wanted easy you should be playing cribbage.
If you’re a Wind Man, the Newport, Rhode Island golf scene is a place for you.
With ocean breezes kicking up and dying down at a moment’s notice, courses like Newport National Golf Club play differently from day to day, hole to hole and shot to shot. It’s a blast. If you don’t mind looking foolish now and then.
If you really want the full effect, play in the morning or twilight when the breezes tend to be at their strongest and most fickle according to locals.

Is it the wind or the locals that are at their strongest and most fickle twice a day?
