Rated 1 out of 5 by Justin6636382 Not worth the time
Course conditions were terrible. 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes is ridiculous. The worst course in central Illinois.

Rated 4 out of 5 by James2070891 Greens are much improved - Plays firm and fast.
The Peoria Park District has spent some time and effort on improving the greens and I am pleased to report that those improvements are now fully mature. The course suffered from a tremendous amount of rain this past June, but is now in very good shape and playing firm and fast. Hit it straight and you can score here. Toughest 4 finishing holes in Peoria.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marktart0630 Not the Cource it used to be
The grumpy staff that checked us in, the bare fairways, sticky chemical treatment on greens were how our day started, but when we finished, and had to use the rest room before leaving we discovered all the doors were locked...good thing we found a near-by restaurant. This isn't the place it once was

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pichaske great layout...wait for course improvements to be completed
Newman offers a very good, challenging layout (especially from the back tees). The course, however, is NOT in good playing condition at the moment. Almost all greens are being worked on and nearly half are "closed." False greens ("hit it into the circle and take credit for a two-putt") exist on 1 front nine hole and most of the back nine. Virtually every other green has "ground under repair" sections...
Call the course before booking a tee time, and wait until the conditions improve before booking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by u557898667 course is under construction
Newman is overhaling several of their greens an the remaining greens are in poor shape. Might be better later in the summer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by golferjim63 This course is in awful shape
I have played this course many times over the past few years but in the last 3 to 4 years they have almost lost all of their greens in my opinion due to poor maintenance. I just played it last saturday and found the greens to be the worse they have ever been. There was really only one green that was ok and it wasn't great. I would suggests not to play this course until it has been taken care of. It is not worth the money and I will not be back on it this year

Early spring conditions are good at this point. Fairways are lush, greens are very fast but a bit patchy. Course is very pretty during the spring, with lots of trees throughout the course and some long tough holes coming home. Repairs are taking place around the clubhouse. Very good staff (nice people). I've heard that some of the greens are being expanded using parts of greens from a recently closed course in another part of the city of Peoria. An enjoyable round of golf with some challenge if you're not hitting it well.
