Golf etiquette was at a loss during my foursome's round at Newman. I can appreciate golfers new to the game. Regardless of the SKILL level one takes to the course, understanding AND FOLLOWING golf etiquette is as important as any part of the game. Enough said.

The course is easy to get to park and follow. The pace of play is great. The all beef hotdogs are pretty good and condiments are fresh. I was frustrated that some of the tee areas were hard to stick a tee in the ground.

Courses was in good condition. Sand was in great shape. Perfect for boogie golfers as most par 4s are easy to reach in two.

Newman is a fun course to play especially if you can find a hot deal. The course has an open layout but smaller greens. Tee boxes are maintained and watered. The bunkers could use a little work and there are some tee shots which are made difficult because of over hanging branches. The food is reasonably priced and there are free refills on fountain drinks so hold onto your cups!

Newman is a nice find for Peoria. Back nine especially attractive. Course is in great shape with revamped tee boxes for ladies and seniors this year. More friendly. Greens were very firm and fast this time. Recommend as a good value.

So many area's on the front 9 especially that are under repair due to the renovations and work to improve drainage that it was difficult at times to find an area you could play from. Sometimes that area was behind trees. Also, there is still a lot of water standing around for all the work that has been done. Bunkers are better (have sand now).

We were very disappointed in our golf day at Newman we booked our time with golf advisor but had called Newman and no one told us that only 9 holes was open on the phone..when we got there i told them was wasn't happy that we were not told...he said it wasn't me and we usually tell people but they didn't . They had the course totally torn up and we were told it's not that busy and it will go fast...we waited on the first hole for 4 groups to go before us...it was terrible...and we had paid aleady and wanted to play but it really took alot out of our golf...waiting a long time on every hole.
