Newman Golf Course
A Must Play in Peoria
This us a very well established mature course. It is quite long from the white tees. Course was in excellent conditions and the greens were plush and true. All but one par 3 was around 180 yards and most of the par 4s were around 410. This us a must play trac if you are visiting the Greater Peoria, IL, area.

Greens were in very poor condition. Mower scalping all around fringes. Fairways were in Descent shape

I read these reviews and had high expectations for this course. It was in awful condition. Greens were bumpy and brown in many spots. The fairways were nice and tea boxes were average condition at best. Nobody fixes their divots either. No course Marshall to make sure rate of play isn't held up by slow players. I would have expected $20 or less for this course. It has potential but was very rough. Also, it is not nearly as challenging as other reviews stated.

Nice layout. Good condition.
The greens had been aerated and sanded recently. Putting speed was slow, but true.

If you hit a straight drive, and can follow your GPS you will have a good day.
Course is easy if you hit a straight long drive. However to error is in the game. The trees are mature and well scattered, at least you will still have a shot though it will be a challenge to hit the green. Moves along well, the foursomes let faster players thru with very little coaxing. Good course and nice people. I would recommend it.
