Newport Country Club was designed in 1894 by William Davis, the club's first professional. Originally designed as a 9 hole course, it was expanded to 18 by architect Donald Ross.

In 1924, A. W. Tillinghast, famous for such designs as Winged Foot, Baltusrol, and the San Francisco Golf Club, was hired to remodel the course layout.
