A lot of “NEW” at NEWman Golf Course!
After two years of being under renovation, the Peoria Park District is pleased to invite you to check out the “new” NEWman Golf Course. Golfers will notice more consistency throughout the course due to the addition of an internal drainage system. Furthermore, sod laid for expansion has improved the health of the greens.
Work was also completed on improving the drainage system throughout the course, thus resulting in optimal conditions for playability and maintenance. Dirt from the drainage project was used to add forward tees to accommodate women, seniors, and beginners, thus relieving stress on existing tee surfaces. The tee work now provides distinct teeing areas for a true 4-marker system with adequate size and yardage variety.
To showcase these changes, the District invites golfers to spend their “afterNEWns” in May playing at NEWman Golf Course. During the month of May, the course will offer a “Daily Special” rate every weekday after 12:00pm. For $24, golfers can play the full 18 hole course with a cart. For those who wish to walk, the discounted fee will be $14. Newman Golf Course is a Peoria Park District facility.
